To make your own Oreo Lamb Lollipops, start by separating your Oreo Cookies. I run a thin knife along the inside of one of the chocolate cookies, to get a nice split. Then brush each side of the Oreo with either melted and tempered white chocolate or melted white confectionery coating. I used Bright White Candy Melts to make mine.
Press a lollipop stick into the wet white chocolate and immediately press the two halves of the cookie back together. Then let the white chocolate harden.
While that’s happening, you can get busy making your sweet little lamb faces, ears, and legs. The faces are so easy. Just attach two candy eyes and one pink heart sprinkle nose to the flat side of some black candy melts using the melted white candy coating. If your black candy melts have white scratch marks all over them, rub them against the palm of your hand, smoothing out the scratches. They will be nice and black again.
For the ears and legs, you’ll need a very small tear drop cutter. (affiliate link) I used the half inch long tear drop cutter from the Autumn Carpenter’s Fondant Cutter set. Cut out two ears and two legs for each lamb. If you don’t have the cutter, you can melt some black candy melts and pipe the tear drops onto a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze them, then peel them off, to use instead.
Dip Oreo Cookies into white chocolate, toss on lots of mini marshmallows, then decorate to look like a lamb. See how to make these Oreo Lamb Lollipops at HungryHappenings.com.
Dip each Oreo lollipop into the melted white chocolate, remove and allow the excess to drip off. Then set in a big pile of tiny marshmallows. Set one lamb face in the center of the Oreo and toss marshmallows all over the cookie. Let the cookie sit for a few minutes before moving to a parchment lined baking sheet. Allow the chocolate to harden for 15 minutes.
You can find these tiny marshmallows (Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits,) in the grocery store, usually near the hot chocolate, but sometimes near the marshmallows. They are the perfect size for these lamb pops.
Use melted white chocolate to attach two ears and two legs to each lamb pop. To get the feet to stick in just the right spot you may need to remove one of the tiny marshmallows. Dip the tip of the tear drop shaped leg in white chocolate and press it onto the marshmallow coated cookie. Hold it in place until it sticks.
I thought my lollipops would look cute with colorful straws over the lollipop sticks, so I dipped the bottom end of my stick in some white chocolate and slid the straw over top. The chocolate helps to keep the straw secured in place.
