My kids love Oreo cookies, they could slurp up a storm whenever they found out that I have stocked up after the grocery shopping. If I didn’t hide some away from them, there wouldn’t be any Bat Oreo Pops craft recipe to share with you here 🙂
My son even offered to clean up the cookies when I am in the process of assembling this Bat Oreo pops. He was hoping I failed in cutting the bat wings so that he could have all those imperfect wings to eat ha ha ha… Well, his wish was granted when I tried up the more intricate method, by using the cookie cutters. Of course, the kids would love to eat the bat as a whole but they just can’t wait.
We had so much fun making these Bat Oreo Pops, they came out so cute and pretty that the kids can’t wait to bring them to school to show and eat.
Have fun and BOO!!!
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 the 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 a 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.
To complete the Bat, pipe a horizontal line of chocolate and stick the almond silvers on. The bat has vampire teeth now, how cute!
If you are living in a warmer and humid country, you need to keep the cookies in an 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.
