How to make Oreo Christmas Tree Pops
You will need
2 x 137g packets of Oreos
White chocolate for melting (300-400g)
Green and yellow food gel colouring
Hundred and thousands sprinkles
Separate the two biscuits in the Oreos and place a stick into the buttercream. Melt about 100g of white chocolate (over a double boiler or half melted in the microwave and then finished melting over bowl of boiling water) and dab a small teaspoonful on the buttercream inside of the Oreo, press the top biscuit onto it. Leave for an hour of so to let dry.
Melt about 200g white chocolate, dip the Oreos into the melted chocolate and let set. I like to stick them into polystrene foam or some playdough, We let ours set in the fridge over night but a couple of hours is probably enough.
Melt 70g of white chocolate and dye green with a drop or two of food gel. Pipe very thin zigzags getting gradually wider (We used a ziplock bag with a small hole cut in the corner) on the Oreo to make it looks like a Christmas tree. Sprinkle sparingly with hundreds and thousands. Melt remaining white chocolate and colour yellow with food gel. Pipe on top of the tree as the star. Let it set. Store in an airtight container.
NOTE: I have estimated the chocolate used as it depends how thick or thin the chocolate coats the Oreos. If you have melted chocolate leftover, leave in the bowl and pour next lot of white chocolate over it so leftovers can also melt again.
