How to Make Monster Pops
If you’ve ever wondered how to make chocolate dipped Oreos, these easy monster pops are a great place to start.
(For all the details, scroll below to the complete printable recipe card.)
- Melt the orange candy melts. Melt the chocolate according to package directions, until melted and smooth.
- Add the sticks to the Oreos. Twist open each of the Oreos. Dip the ends of each popsicle stick into the chocolate then press into the Oreo cream. Add the top of the cookie back. Transfer to the fridge for 10 minutes.
- Melt the green candy melts. Melt the green candy melts according to the package directions, until melted and smooth.
- Assemble the monster pops. Begin dipping the Oreos into the chocolate of your choice. Quickly add a few eyes and add sprinkles if desired. Repeat until cookies are decorated.
- Chill. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to set before enjoying.
Here are some questions I commonly receive about making chocolate dipped Oreos, from what type of chocolate to use to how to ensure the Oreos stick together:
- My chocolate is very thick. What can I do? If your chocolate is too thick once melted, you can stir in coconut oil to thin it. Start with one teaspoon at a time until it’s the desired consistency.
- Melting wafers or candy melts vs white chocolate chips. I prefer Wilton candy melts or Ghirardelli white melting wafers for these white chocolate dipped Oreos and other candy-making. They have a smooth consistency when melted and once dried and hardened, they don’t soften at room temperature. If you want to use regular white chocolate or white chocolate chips, I recommend combining it with some coconut oil which will help it thicken up and harden faster. You’ll need around 1 tablespoon of coconut oil per 1 cup of chocolate.
- My Oreo will not stay on the stick. What can I do? If you don’t use enough chocolate on the stick, this can happen. You want to make sure there is enough that the chocolate pools up a little bit so the cookie will stick.
- What kind of fork did you use for dipping the chocolate? I used a dipping fork that I got here. I love to use them because more of the chocolate can drip off, so it doesn’t leave as big of a chocolate foot.
For a fun display at a party, you can display your Halloween dipped Oreos in florist foam, covered in festive paper. These will also fit in a cake pop holder, if you have one. To give these as a gift, you can also place them in a decorative bag sealed with a ribbon. Those are perfect for classroom Halloween parties!
How to Store
You can store your chocolate covered Oreo pops at room temperature for about a day, just be sure to keep them out of direct sunlight. Otherwise, store in the fridge for up to a week. If you need to layer them, place parchment paper between each layer of monster oreos.
