We just got done with another crazy FB live video that involved the kids, the UPS man showing up, and a very excited 6 year old who got a new stuffed animal. But even more exciting than all that, is the cute Poké Balls that we created out of Oreos!!!

- White Candy Melts
- Red Candy Melts

Start by melting about 1/2 your candy melts in a plastic bowl. Use a smaller one making the chocolate a bit deeper. Melt your white first, and red second, in separate bowls. To melt the chocolate, put the bowl into the microwave for 30 seconds, and stir completely. Then return to the microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir completely again and if the chocolate is still not completely melted, return to the microwave in 10 second intervals. DO NOT USE A METAL SPOON TO STIR. I find it best to stir with my wooden sucker sticks.
Once the chocolate is melted, dip just under 1/2 of an Oreo into the white chocolate, and the very tip of a sucker stick. Then carefully push the sucker stick into the center of the oreo, middle of the white chocolate. Then carefully lay the cookie onto a sheet of parchment paper to cool & harden. Continue with the rest of your Oreos, or until you run out of white chocolate!
If the red chocolate has started to harden a little, put back in the microwave for approx. 8-10 seconds and stir again. Once the white chocolate has hardened, pick the oreo up by the stick and dip it into the red chocolate, leaving a small portion of the black cookie still visible and uncovered.
Then using the end of a sucker stick, dip it very lightly into the chocolate and spread that chocolate onto the back of a sugar candy eyeball. Then place that in the very middle of the cookie, on the black stripe that is still visible.
Let your cookies harden fully on the parchment paper before picking up.
I love my The Smart Baker Cake Pop Tower that makes it easy to display and hold these pops. You can also get a sheet of styrofoam and push them into it for a stand as well!
