Oreo Cookie Lollipops
Let me “Show You” a quick snack that is a winner with my grandkids. I love to have my grandkids over to make things, either a craft or something fun to eat. On Wednesday nights we go to KSG at Crestview in Midland where they enjoy crafts, bible study, and snacks! The kids take turns bringing the snacks, and this past Wednesday it was their Emma, Ethan, and Noah’s turn.
Of course we cannot just take a pre-packaged snack, the kids want to create something! (I wonder where they get that?) They start pulling out the Sprinkles and here we go!
What you will need:
You’ll also need lollipop sticks or craft sticks.
Show me Decorating tip: keep candy melts and sprinkles on hand for a quick and easy food/craft project and everyone is happy!
You can always adjust the color of the candy melts or sprinkles if you have a holiday or special event to celebrate. On this occasion we went with spring colors and Easter cello bags for packaging. There are a lot of great ideas on Pinterest for homemade snacks! Check out Craft-O-Maniac and Eugenie Kitchen.
We used Oreos (double stuffed) and craft sticks to create cookie lollipops. I thought I had the lollipop sticks but Rebecca had used them in making cake pops! So we improvised with the craft sticks.
We started by separating the cookies, dipping the stick in the candy melt, placing it on the white filling and putting the cookie back together. Allow the cookie to set before dipping and decorating with sprinkles.
Follow the instructions on the candy melt packaging. Then let the kids dip and decorate! (Be careful the mixture is hot!)
I found these cute Easter cello bags at Walmart.
We shared our treats with our friends at church and then took some to cousins in San Antonio.
What will you be serving for your Easter celebration?
Happy decorating y’all!
Creating memories is a wonderful opportunity as a Gram, and hands on activities are the best!
