Ingredients

  • 1 package of your favorite Oreos
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) milk chocolate (or dark or semi-sweet chocolate)
  • 48 black bead sprinkles
  • 24 miniature red M&Ms
  • 1 bag pretzel twists
  • Optional: vegetable oil makes it easier to work with
  • 24 Lollipop sticks

Instructions

  1. Gently separate the oreos by slowly twisting them apart. (Some will break, it's okay, just try to be gentle)
  2. Separate the chocolate into 3 parts (this is to keep it from getting hard while you decorate) and place each section in a microwave safe bowl.
  3. To make the chocolate easier to work with about 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil to each section of chocolate (you can add more later if needed to thin it even more).
  4. Melt in 20 second bursts in the microwave (Microwave 20 seconds, stir 20 seconds, etc.)
  5. Be patient when melting and stir well in between bursts to avoid burning the chocolate.
  6. Dip one end of the lollipop stick into the melted chocolate and press that side into the cream side of the oreo.
  7. Place the other half of the oreo on top and gently press and hold.
  8. Place the oreo on top of a fork over the bowl of melted chocolate. Use a spoon to spoon chocolate over the oreo.
  9. Shake the fork gently on the edge of the bowl until the chocolate forms an even layer.
  10. Place on a sheet of parchment paper.
  11. Break pretzel twists in half (there will be a lot of casualties which is why I don't have an exact amount of how many you'll use!)
  12. Press the broken pretzels at the top of the pop to form antlers. Hold until they will stay. (Milk chocolate hardens much slower than candy melts and white chocolate so you might need to wait a couple of minutes before decorating so the pretzels will stay put.)
  13. Drop 2 pearl sprinkles below the antlers.
  14. Drop 1 red M&M below the sprinkles to form the nose.
  15. Allow to harden at room temperature.
