Oreo in Disguise-Apple Oreo Pops

 So if you have been reading my blog for any length of time you will know that I am sort of obsessed with masquerading food, hiding ingredients or disguising treats.
A hidden ingredient is the funnest! (Is funnest a word?)
Anyway, so seeing as it is now apple season I thought we would do something a little fun without actually incorporating an apple.
I am sort of like Jessica Seinfeld backwards.
She tries to sneak healthy food into your kid’s junk food, so they don’t even know.
But me?  I reward kids for choosing the healthy with the junk!
You say you want an apple?
Good choice!  Here’s an apple-shaped Oreo.
I’m pretty sure I am the coolest mom ever.
So here are the most simple details.
You will need Double-Stuf Oreos
It won’t work without them.
Also, popsicle sticks work great for this too, and is actually what I would recommend because they are flat, but I had the round sticks on-hand, so I used those.
Melt you candy melts on low setting until melted stirring every 30 seconds.
Gently press your stick into the bottom of the Oreo and dip.
Break your pretzel sticks into 1″ pieces.
After they are dipped gently press a pretzel stick into the top for the “stem”.
After they are dry, tie a green ribbon around the pretzel mimicking the leaves…
Or if you are feeling really crazy, pipe on some leaves with green icing…go you!
You can do them on a stick or off for equal cuteness…
Please don’t be a hater, I know children need to eat fruits and vegetables to be healthy, but I am under the firm belief that the occasional Oreo promotes a healthy child as well.
I’m pretty sure that’s a fact πŸ™‚

    Yes, you are indeed the coolest mom ever! I love the idea of hiding indulgences (sp?) in the guise of fruits or vegetables. This is so cute!

    What a wonderful Fall treat! I would be very happy with an apple or an oreo…and with this snack I would get both. You are very creative, which is one reason I love visiting your blog!

    Hahaha!! I love these! At first I thought it was a Christmas ornament. The apple is adorable, but I may steal this and make ornaments for my neighborhood gift this year πŸ™‚

    Yes, I agree; we all need our goodies now and then. Life would be way too boring with just fruit:)

    These are great! The only thing better than an oreo is one coated in candy/chocolate. Your apples are awesome!

    …found you via Craft Gossip and it may be possible that we were seperated at birth! I LOVE THESE and I may very well be making them before the week {or day!} is over! Oh, and LOL about the Jessica Seinfield comment. She needs to get off her hi-horse and live a little. I'm following because I do not want to miss any more treats like this!!

    Love these. Loved them so much, that Megan at http://www.meganscookin.com and I made some, too. But we made jack-o-lanterns for the upcoming holiday! It was fun and really easy. Thank you for the idea. We both posted about them today. So many possibilities with these, too! Thanks.

    Love your blog/page. Looking forward to enjoying your ideas with my Grandchildren…And the forbidden/hidden foods are great. My 8 year old Grandson is such a picky eater, hopefully this will help give him all he needs.
