      These are SO cute! I'd love to know where is the best place to find the sucker sticks and bags?? Thanks for another great idea!

        Jamie says:
        I've found the sucker sticks and bags at Michaels, Joanns, and occasionally Walmart. They used to sell the bags with the silver ties but the past few times I've made these I've had to buy them separately...

        Also there are three different size sticks (small,medium, and large) I like to use the medium ones.

      What kind of chocolate is best to use? Melting chocolate or chocolate chips? I'd love to make these!

        Shelley says:
        I'd recommend using melting chocolate. Wilton brand has a good variety. ( Wilton can be found in most craft stores and sometimes at Walmart)
    5. December 11th, 2009 at 12:48 pm
      Jamie says:
      Another tip to making these is if you are going to use sprinkles put them on right after you dip the cookie into the chocolate. And if you are going to drizzle put the dipped oreos in the fridge to harden first then drizzle.

      What a cute idea...I have made these with MOON PIES. I never heard of the things before I moved south, so I am not sure if you can buy them north of the mason dixon. At any rate, they are cute but taste like cardboard...I will be attempting the oreos!! I use foam oasis in a dollar store bucket then wrap the entire thing in cellophane. Very cute gifts.

      I like to but my melting chocolate discs at WinCo in their bulk bins. The flavor is great (not waxy like some) and you can buy as little or as much as you want!

        Do chocolate and Oreo's have expiration dates? :) I don't know, but I bet they are good for a few days!

          Could you freeze them if making them in advance?

            Thats a good question. I am honestly not sure. I don't see why not?! Jamie? Do you know?

      dana says:
      So I wanted to make some suckers and make sure I knew how to do this before valentines day so I made some. I couldn't get the sucker sticks to stay in and the cookies would break. figured out that the sticks were thicker than the filling so thought to myself, must have been the double stuff oreos. Then a light comes on and I read the tutorial again and find out that I should dip the sticks in the chocolate first, then put them in the cookie. Walla!!! It worked so much better. So, always read all the directions!.
      • January 29th, 2010 at 3:03 pm
        Shelley says:
        Thanks Dana! :) -Double Stuff Oreos would probably help make it a bit easier too!

        amy says:
        dana - a year 1/2 later....i made the same mistake! went to the store, bought double stuff & had the same problem. thought i'd follow the pinterest link to the tutorial, and voila! found the trick! :)

      I'm going to try this for Valentine's Day. I'm a 4th grader and I think it's a really good idea for my classroom treats. Thanks.

      Amy says:
      I can't get my oreos to stay closed after I open them to put them on the stick :(
      • February 3rd, 2010 at 12:24 pm
        Shelley says:
        Did you dip your stick in chocolate first? Make sure you do! And let the chocolate dry before dipping. I used regular oreos, but I am sure double stuffed would be even better to help everything stay together.

      My grandma used to make these for my birthday (to bring to my school class.) She would always put a Skittle on the front in the middle which was always my favorite part.

      I'm wanting to make these as wedding favours, did a trial run & when opening the oreo's they kept breaking...any ideas or suggestions?
      • April 24th, 2010 at 1:33 pm
        Shelley says:
        I've had that happen to me ONCE. Every last oreo in the package had a hairline crack in it. {ugh}. Something wrong with packaging I'm sure. Anyways,...make sure that isn't the issue. Also make sure to use the melted chocolate on the stick and GENTLY press it in to the frosting and immediately put the top back on,...gently. Hope that helps. Usually this isn't an issue. Maybe try the double stuffed? :)
        • May 2nd, 2010 at 1:54 pm
          Andrea says:
          Thanks Shelley, I tried double stuffed oreo's & they pull apart without braking & will be using those. The bride & groom tried my samples & they love them, my children also tried my sample's & my son said they were heaven on a stick. Now to make 250 of these, should be fun!!

      Whats the trick to get the chocolate to melt right? It seemed I may have over cooked it, so it wasn't easy to just dip the cookies into the chocolate.. :(
    31. October 24th, 2010 at 9:24 am
      Lisa says:
      Great idea! I am having the hardest time keeping the sticks from pulling out of the cookies when I dip them. I have let them sit for a couple of hours before dipping. Any suggestions or special tips? Thank you!
      • October 24th, 2010 at 11:49 am
        Shelley says:
        Make sure you dip the stick in chocolate, put it in the sandwhich, and let it HARDEN before trying to dip the suckers. You can speed this up by sticking them in the fridge for a few minutes. Hope that helps! :)

      Made these as party favors for my daughter's 11th bday at the end of Oct. Since it was near Halloween, we used white chocolate and then regular sized chocolate chips as eyes to make "ghost pops." Tied them off with orange ribbon. Too cute and a huge hit. Thanks for the idea!!

      Jennifer says:
      Has any one had trouble with the chocolate being goopy? I kept putting it back in the microwave until it was very well melted but when I dipped my oreos in it the look goopy not smooth like the pictures. Any suggestions? Thanks!

      I have tried making my oreo cookie suckers twice now and I have made a big mess. I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but mine are not pretty. My sticks will not stay in the oreos after they hit the chocolate. It's like they melt out immediately. I let the sticks sit in the cookies with the icing for at least 10 minutes. Also, my chocolate is not smooth and pretty like yours. I have tried chocolate chips, almond bark and now I just bought the colored melting chocolate to try. I want to make these for my daughters b-day party, but noone will want to eat mine. :-)

        Use the disc melts, they will turn out soooo much smoother and prettier. I use the wilton brand. You can find the chocolate discs at michaels, joanns, etc. Hope that helps!! :)

      **FOR ANYONE WHO FOUND THIS A LITTLE MORE DIFFICULT THAN IT SOUNDS: I just had my first attempt at these adorable lollipops. Out of approximately 40 cookies, I ended up with 15 cookies that broke as I was pulling them apart, 15 lollipops that broke or fell apart during dipping and 12 fantastic looking lollipops! Not the best of odds, but most of the 12 successes came towards the end when I had refined my skills. I think my second attempt will be much more successful. And I am absolutely thrilled with the 12, gorgeous lollipops I ended up with! Thank you for this terrific idea.

      I also make the oreo pops, but i have noticed lately that all my oreo cookies are breaking??? Out of a bag of 36, i was only able to get 4, the rest all broke when i tried to put the stick on it. Do you have the same issue? not sure what is going on??

      My son has dairy allergies. Do you know if a dark chocolate will work for melting? I believe the Wilton Melts have whey. Can choc. chips work if you melt slowly and perhaps add shortening? Any help would be greatly appreciated. These would be so cute and yummy for his birthday party!

      I was so excited to make these for my son's class....well what a mess! First about a third of the bag of cookies cracked when I tried using them.....then my sticks wouldn't stay (thinking maybe they were to long). What a disappointment! Maybe I will give it another try!

      First of all I would like to say superb blog!
      I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

      I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
      I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
      I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just
      seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to
      figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

      diane says:
      @jayesel: I buy the almond bark (which is just dipping chocolate and not a thing to do w/ almond) at Walmart. it's much cheaper than wilton. probablynot the same taste, but it tastes good. and frankly, w/ the sprinkles, etc on it, you won't notice the diff. The pkg for the almond bark says to stir in a little crisco (hard shortening, I think it says). that will keep it soft enough to dip.
