Instructions

  1. Place the white chocolate chips in a heat proof bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals until the chocolate is completely melted.

  2. Secure a cake pop stick into an Oreo by dipping one end into the melted chocolate and guiding it 1 cm into the stuffing. Wipe of any excess chocolate and place on a baking sheet covered in parchment. Repeat with all the Oreos and place in the freezer for 10 minutes.

  3. Once set, remove the Oreos from the freezer and reheat the white chocolate. Coat each Oreo in white chocolate using a spoon to pour chocolate over top. Tap off the excess by hitting the stick onto the side of the bowl. Flip the Oreo and repeat with the second side. You will need to work quickly so that neither the stuffing nor the set white chocolate melts. Place on the baking sheet and repeat. Once completely coated place the baking sheet back in the freezer for 10 minutes to set completely.

  4. To paint onto the Oreos, dip a brush into your food colour and place it on to a plate in the same way that you would with water colour paints. Add a small amount of water to dilute the colour and then begin painting your design onto the Oreo. Once you are happy with your designs, let dry for 2-3 hours.

- Hey guys! Julie here, and today, I wanted to show you how to do a really, really easy dessert for any party. You can decorate it any way. Today, I thought it would be for kind of, a tropical party, or, you know that like, hipster palm leaf wallpaper. That's what I was going for. So, let's just jump into it, it looks really cool. First thing you wanna do is melt your white chocolate, and this will be done really simply in the microwave at 30-second intervals. Then, I wanna secure my double-stuffed Oreos onto cake pop sticks, so you're gonna wanna dunk each stick into a little bit of white chocolate, and then gently guide it into your Oreo. This is gonna ensure that our Oreos don't fall off the sticks when we go to dunk the whole thing. Place your Oreos onto a sheet of parchment paper. It can be on a baking sheet or on a plate, it doesn't matter. These just gotta go into the fridge or freezer to set up completely. Once your Oreos are set, give your white chocolate another zap in the microwave. You wanna make sure it's nice and warm. And now, this is where we're gonna dunk them, and I don't actually wanna dip them in and pull them out and have them be covered because if we melt that original kind of, cork of white chocolate, the entire cookie's gonna fall off. So the technique I like to use is to take a large tablespoon and I pour some white chocolate over the top. Then, I take the stick and I bang it against the bowl to try and get the chocolate smooth. Then, give it a flip and repeat the process, banging off any excess chocolate. Now, one little tip while you're doing this is try to work quickly because if that white icing of the Oreo gets too warm, it will melt itself, so, you wanna kinda do this quickly and get it back on the cool baking sheet as soon as posisble. Repeat that with all your Oreos and then get that back in the fridge or freezer for another 10 minutes or so. And now, it is time to paint, it is time for you to be your own Bob Ross. I'm gonna show you how I did this design, but have this be inspiration for any party you can imagine. You can do whatever colors you like. You go for it. All right, so I have two different colors of gel food coloring here. I have a darker green and a lighter green. Now, I'm gonna open these up and dip my paintbrush in. I've also got a little bit of water here, and I'm gonna dilute the color onto a nice plate here. Then, I'm gonna start painting on palm leaves, and this is where it just takes a lot of practice. So, to get the right color, I like incorporating a little bit of water, and I get that nice light green. And I like to just trace out the leaf, and kind of, get an idea of it, and then you can fill it in. You can add some darker colors to it if you want to give it more dimension, and you can put in all sorts of different palm leaves. If you want one that looks a little more spikey, if you want one that looks a little more big and luscious. Now, one thing to note, as you're painting this on, these are water-based gel food colors, so if you incorporate too much water, you'll notice that the water starts to pool together, and it won't actually leave color on the Oreo. So, it really just takes practice to figure out how much food coloring you will need on your brush, and how much water to get the right color. If you did want a paint that was a little more pigmented and didn't pull away like this, you could always use candy food coloring or chocolate food coloring. That would work differently. But what I like about using the water base, is that it does actually look like watercolors. So, you'll notice I'm using lots of different techniques and lots of different brushes. The finer brushes are good for really fine leaves. I like adding dimension. But each Oreo is up to you. It is your creative opportunity to paint whatever you like. Some of them are gonna work, some of them are gonna look terrible. It should just be a fun time. And during this process, I really do like to wear an apron so you don't have splishy splashies all over your nice shirt. So, these Oreos now have just gotta dry for a couple hours, and then they are ready to bring to your party. Well, you guys, I hope this was fun inspiration for you for your next party. Be creative, find something cool to draw or paint onto your Oreo pops. Thank you for watching, and I'll see you next time.
