Easter Chick OREO Pops

Ingredients

  • Golden Double Stuffed OREO cookies
  • 1 (12 oz) package yellow candy melts (like Wilton brand)
  • mini chocolate chips (2 per cookie)
  • yellow and orange candy-coated chocolate pieces
  • Lollipop sticks

Directions

  1. Place a large piece of waxed paper on a flat surface or baking sheet. Place the candy decorations close by having the candy pieces cut in half so they are ready to go.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, start by melting half of the yellow candy melts (according to package directions). Dip the end of one of the lollipop sticks in the melted yellow candy coating, and then insert into one of the OREO cookies. Repeat for as many as you want to make. Then submerge the cookie into the yellow candy coating, and place on the waxed paper. Place two mini chocolate chips for eyes, place a half orange candy for the beak, place two yellow half candy pieces for the wings, and two whole orange candies for the feet.
  3. Let the cookies set to completely cool and harden before removing from waxed paper. Wrap or store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
