We “said” we were making these for Sassy, but I’m not certain that’s true. These are super easy to make and ridiculously cute. She loves monsters so we made plenty of those, plus a few for Halloween.
Here is everything I used.
I decided to go with popsicle sticks instead of lollipop sticks mainly because I couldn’t find any lollipop sticks while I was shopping.
I also decided to use gel food coloring instead of candy melts.
First, you need to take apart the Oreos so you can secure the sticks in the middle.
Melt the chocolate you are going to start with. I started with about half of the bag in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals.
Take a stick and dip the end in the chocolate and press it onto one half of the Oreo and then add the other half. Set aside to dry for a few minutes.
Make sure you use parchment paper so they won’t stick once they are covered in chocolate.
Once the sticks are secured and set, start dipping the Oreos in the chocolate. We started with plain white chocolate and then moved on to the food coloring. You can dip the whole cookie in the chocolate or pour the chocolate over the Oreo with a spoon.
After they are covered, apply any decorations that will need to dry to the chocolate (eyeballs, sprinkles, sugar pearls).
Once all of your cookies are chocolate covered, and partially decorated, let everything set in the refrigerator. I probably let ours set for about an hour.
Apply the icing decorations and pat yourself on the back!

Dracula and a Monster
Monster Oreo Pops
- 1-2 bags of white chocolate morsels
- 1 bag of chocolate morsels
- Gel food coloring
- Popsicle or lollipop sticks
- Decorator icing
Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper for the chocolate drying.
Take apart the Oreos so you can insert the sticks.
Melt about half the bag of chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals until melted.
Dip the ends of the sticks in the chocolate and press into one of the Oreo halves. Add the other half, gently press together and set aside to dry. Shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.
Dip the prepared pops in the chocolate or pour over with a spoon. If you need to add food coloring, add as much as needed to get the color you want and then dip the pops. You may have to reheat the chocolate while you are working.
Add any decorations like eyeballs that need to stick to the chocolate while it dries.
Once all the pops are covered and partially decorated, let them finish setting in the fridge for about an hour.
Take them out, finish up any icing decorations, and enjoy!
