DIY Tutorial From a Catch My Party Member: How to Make Oreo Pops!

I saw these Oreo pops in one of the photos of Amy H's awesome Nolan Paper Airlines {First Birthday Party}. First of all, how creative is a paper airplane party? And secondly, how good do these Oreo pops look?

I asked Amy if I could repost the tutorial she did on her blog, Buggie and Jellybean, and she generously agreed. So according to Amy, here's how you make these simple but delicious treats...

Brace yourself for this "recipe", you just might have to be Betty Crocker herself to handle "baking" of this level.

What you will need:

1 package of Oreos

1 block of cream cheese {room temp}

1 bag of Wilton's melting candy

Food Processor

I used sticks but you can just form them into balls.

Chop up those Oreos until they are a bowl of Oreo powder goodness. Add the block of cream cheese. Mix with your hands until it forms a dough like substance.

Form into balls. I would say I made mine about 2 in. Which yields 24.

***Let set in fridge for about 20 mins before moving to next set.***

Coat in the Wiltons.

Let them setup on a cookie sheet. I made them two days in advance and kept them in the fridge. You WILL need to hide them. Or make an extra batch.

Thank you, Amy, for this delicious and easy tutorial. To learn more about Amy, visit her blog Buggie and Jellybean and check out her gorgeous parties on our site.

Cake Pops -- My New Obsession

Can you believe I've never tried a cake pop?  I know... the insanity.  And yet, I'm obsessed with them, and with the blog Bakerella where it all began.

For those of you late to the game, like myself, you might be asking what's a cake pop?  Well, it's just crumbled cake combined with frosting, rolled into balls, covered in chocolate, with sticks attached.  Simple, but oh so delicious, and incredibly cute.

Many of the parties on our site feature them, because they look so great on a dessert table.

Here are my favorites from Bakerella.

And here are two variations on the theme from Bakerella, macaron pops and pie pops.  Genius.

If you want to make any of these above, check out the Bakerella blog because every pop comes with detailed directions.

I can't promise they will look as beautiful as these, but I bet they'll sure taste good.
