Peppermint Oreo Lollipops

I was thinking about this the other day…

Kids typically want to keep all of their treats to themselves. When I was younger, I would have gladly devoured all of my treats, candy, etc. by myself. And then parents come along and suggest sharing and blah, blah, blah… you know the rest of the story.

However, as adults, the story slightly changes. I still want it all to myself, but instead I gladly hand it off to others. Partially to keep myself from eating it all.  Not to mention, it truly does feel good to give. These would make an awesome gift if, of course, you can resist from eating them all.

 Pictured above? Not quite lollipops. In fact, there are simply Vanilla dipped PEPPERMINT OREO lollipops. Have you tried Peppermint Oreos? You should, they are great, especially dipped in chocolate! Get ‘em while you can, they are a seasonal item!

There isn’t really a recipe here -  they are pretty simple.

Here is what you will need:

Peppermint Oreo Lollipops


Peppermint Oreo Lollipops
  • 1 package Peppermint (or cool mint) Oreo® Cookies
  • 1 package Vanilla CandiQuik Coating
  • Lollipop sticks
  1. Insert a lollipop stick into the Oreo cookie. *Tip: Use the un-broken oreos and push the lolliop stick in slowly until it is just below the top of the cookie.
  2. Melt the Vanilla CandiQuik according to the package directions.
  3. Holding by the stick, dip your cookie in the CANDIQUIK, completely covering all sides. If you are dipping in the tray, use a spoon to pour the coating over the top of the cookie. Let the excess coating drip off.
  4. Place on wax or parchment paper to set.
  5. Once the coating is completely dry, use a plastic ziploc bag (or piping bag) to pipe a spiral swirl on the cookie. Sprinkle immediately with red sugar decors.


If there is still a lot of coating dripping on the wax paper, you can pick up the cookie and reposition it, eliminating that annoying excess blob of coating.

Once the coating is completely dry, use a plastic ziploc bag (or piping bag) to pipe a spiral swirl on the cookie.

Sprinkle immediately with red sugar decors.

      Hi Cindy! Make sure you get the double stuffed oreos – otherwise I’ve even used the store brand (Target’s Market Pantry brand) and found they worked better – they must have a little more filling in them. And to make them easier to dip, try transfering the candiquik into a deep mug or bowl and dip them that way. Hope this helps. Tip: if you are still having issues w/ the oreos, try twisting the top off and use a little dab of candiquik to attach the back and front of the cookie; let dry; then dip in candiquik.
      Thanks – Sarah
