I don’t know about you but Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays for baking. Not just because the day is surrounded with love and appreciation but it symbolizes more than that for me.
As a mom of four, February is a very busy month for us. From school parties and birthdays, we are pretty much on the go.
A favorite Valentine’s treat that I like to make for my children is Oreo Pops. It’s really simple to make and takes little time to do. Like most recipes, the preparation is time consuming but once you take a bite of that delicious treat it’s all worth while. I wouldn’t consider myself a “foodie” just a regular mom that enjoys baking special treats or desserts for my family.
Sharing is caring so I am sending my love with this recipe.
You will need:
One package of Oreos
One package of Cream Cheese
One block of Vanilla/Almond White Chocolate Brick (found in the baking aisle)
One package of Paper Straws
As desired you may use Valentines Day Sprinkles or Decorative Art
You begin with breaking the Oreo’s into fine pieces. I used my Ninja blender and in seconds it was done. I have in the past used a cheese grater which also works great. Once your Oreo’s have been chopped then you add your package of soft cream cheese. Start combining and mixing by hand. Once the cream cheese is completely covered then start rolling healthy portions of balls.
When you have finished that step, place your Oreo balls on parchment paper, place them inside your refrigerator for atleast 5 minutes.
In the meantime, start melting your White Chocolate on your stove. You can use a double boiler or place two pots together. It’s important that melting is done slowly so it will not burn.
Take your paper straws and place them into your Oreo balls. Once you completed that step you may start dipping the Oreo Balls right into your melted White Chocolate.
If you do desire sprinkles, the best time to place them on your covered White Chocolate Oreo Balls is right after they have been dipped. Since the chocolate hardens quickly that step must be quick.
I’ll tell ya, these come out so rich and delicious that I can only eat half of one.
Overall, it cost me about $7 to make which is awesome for such a great Valentine’s Day treat.
Prep time about 30 mins or less.
Give it a try and let me know how you make out!
