Ninjago Birthday Party Oreo Pops

No, you aren't seeing double! Yes, this is my second post today! Since I made two different kinds of cookies I thought I would share how I made these Oreo Pops with you all as well!

Ninjago Birthday Party Oreo Pops

Here is what you will need:

One package of Double Stuff Oreos
White Candy Melts
Lollipop sticks
Icing Colours

Directions:

Melt your Candy Melts in the microwave at 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between each increment. I added a teaspoon of shortening to make the consistency of the melts a little runnier.

Twist apart all of the Oreo cookies. With the lollipop stick make an indentation in the white filling of each cookie. Dip the end of the lollipop stick and place it into the indentation you just made in the cookie.

 Place the top of the cookie back on. Once you have about half of them done place them in the freezer until you are ready for the next step.

With the chilled cookies that you just removed from the freezer, dip the cookies one at a time into the melted chocolate. I used a spoon to drizzle over them, I found this way I wasn't leaving "Oreo dust" behind. Shake off the excess chocolate by tapping the side of the bowl gently. 

TIP: To keep my Candy Melts from hardening I had placed my glass bowl on top of another bowl that had been filled with boiling water.

Place your dipped Oreo's on parchment paper to dry.

Once the cookies were dry, I finished them off by adding their faces. See my Sugar Cookie post on how I added the Royal Icing.

I hope you've enjoyed this little tutorial on Oreo Pops, a great alternative to Cake Pops. I love them both, I just wanted to try something new!

Ninjago Birthday Party Sugar Cookies

Hi everyone! Today is party day!!! Woohoo, I may be more excited than the Birthday Boy, LOL! Everything is ready for tonight, phewww! *sigh*  

The next thing I'm going to share with you today is how I made my sugar cookies. Guess what... this was my first time ever, and I am so happy with the results! If I can do it, you can too!

Ninjago Birthday Party Sugar Cookies

The first thing I did was look up a recipe for making sugar cookies. HERE is the one I finally used.

Next, I made Royal Icing. HERE is the recipe I used for it.

I made my icing consistency a bit on the runnier side. I wanted to pipe and flood the cookie right away. I was a little impatient, hehe!

I then outlined the outside of the cookie and the outside of the mask and went straight into flooding them.

I first did all the white and then all my red cookies. Once those were piped and flooded I then went back and flooded the center faces with yellow icing. You need to wait at least 20 minutes before adding another color.

I finished them off by pipping on their eyes and eyebrows. Some of the black icing I used for the eyes ended up bleeding into the yellow icing... I probably was too impatient, and didn't wait for the face to harden up enough or my black icing was too runny! Either way, they still taste the same but look like they have on runny mascara, LOL! ;)

I then let these little Ninjas rest overnight. The next day I wrapped them individually and placed one in each treat bag for Tomas' guests!
