Halloween Bat Oreo Pops
1. Oreo Cookies (any flavors; normal or double stuff)
2. Popsicle sticks
3. Candy Eyes (I did mine with royal icing as described in this recipe. Or, buy it.)
4. Almond Silvers
5. Chocolate / Candy Melts in piping bag (need small amount only for adhesion)
Twist the sandwiched Oreo cookie to split them, you will have 1 wafer with cream filling and 1 without cream filling.
To make one Bat Oreo Pop, we need 2 wafers with cream filling, and 1 wafer without filling.
Cut the chocolate wafer that without the cream filling into half. Cut slowly to prevent the edge from chipping away. You can use serrated knife to saw it if you prefer this way. Just in case you didn’t cut the wafer perfectly, you still have the extra wafer to cut again.
Press the halve-wafers and popsicle stick on the cream filling as shown in the picture.
Ooze some chocolate melt onto the assembly for better adhesion.
Press another oreo (with cream filling) onto them with cream filling facing down.
Add 2 small dots of chocolate melt next to the “Oreo” print on the cookies. Place the candy eyes on top of them.
Cut the almond silver to smaller size, you only need the 2 pointy parts of it.
To complete the Bat, pipe a horizontal line of chocolate and stick the almond silvers on. The bat has a vampire teeth now, how cute!
If you are living in a warmer and humid country, you need to keep the cookies in air-tight container to prevent them from staling.
If you would like to challenge a more elaborated bat wings, you can try cut it with a “wave” shaped cookie cutters.
The one I used is supposed a moose cookie cutter, I used the horn part of the cutter.
Cut 2 in reverse side to make up a pair of bat wings.
Remark: The success yield of this method is low, provided you leave the cookies outside the packaging a little longer and wait for it to stale, the cutting is easier when the cookie gets softer.
Tadaaaa.. 2 bats with different shapes of wings, which one do you prefer?
