Today’s a special day!
We are celebrating our friend Jenny. She’s gonna have a baybeh.
Another boy to add to her houseful of boys.
Speaking from one mom of boys to another, you’re in for more fun, my friend!
You all know Jenny...she writes the insanely sweet blog Picky Palate. And I have to tell you she is even nicer and sweeter in real life.
So, to celebrate Jenny and her soon-to-be bundle of joy, we are having a fun, “virtual” baby shower, since we all can’t be there in in person to give her cookies and hugs before her little nugget arrives.
And because we all know Jenny is an Oreo Queen, I made some super easy, and totally cute Oreo Pop Baby Rattles.
Kinda the easiest thing ever, but perfect for a shower!
All you need are a few supplies to make these. Start with Double Stuf Oreos, Bite Size Oreos, Blue Candy melts, Some sprinkles for decoration…
And some lollipop sticks. I cut mine down to 3 inches, so the “rattle” was a little more proportioned,
The steps are easy. Separate the Double Stuf Oreo cookie and press the stick gently into the cream. Then press the other half back on top.
Next separate two Bite Size Oreos and using both of the cream sides and sandwich the lollipop stick in between.
* I saved all my extra “uncreamed” sides in a ziplock to use in the future for cookie crumbs or a garnish.
Melt your candy melts in the microwave with about a 1-2 teaspoons of vegetable shortening and dip each side, tapping off the excess. Transfer to wax paper to set.
Immediately press on the sprinkles into the wet candy.
Tie a cute little bow around the stick and that’s it!
Now here’s the fun part…some of Jenny’s friends from around the internets are showering her with deliciousness too! Spend some time and check out what everyone made!
Congrats Jenny and I can’t wait to see your little guy’s sweet face! xoxo

So, we learned like a few a other people here that the Oreo’s tend to come off when you try to dip them. What we did is throw four of them in the microwave at a time to melt the creme and then stuck them in the freezer to join them all together. Just push down on the cookies once they come out of the microwave and throw them in the freezer until they have re-solidified. Bing bang boom; you’re ready to dip.
They are very cute. Followed your recipe and have wasted half the bag so far. Dipping in the candy it just falls apart. What do I do? And laying it on the wax paper the other side does’nt look good at all. How do you get the other side smooth???? HELP PLEASE I have to make a hundred of them.
The Oreo falls apart?
These are adorable! Such a great idea 🙂
Love these! Simply adorable~awesome idea! 🙂
