Gluten Free Christmas Gifts #10: Chocolate Covered Oreo Pops

For our last installment of Gluten Free Christmas Gifts for this year, I've chosen one of the cutest little treats you can find: Gluten Free Oreo Pops. I saw these on How Does She's blog a while ago and they have a really great tutorial with better pictures than mine, but here's how I did mine gluten free.

First of all, I used Kinnikinnick's Kinni-Toos vanilla sandwich cookies, because I wanted them to be wintery looking with white chocolate. You could use the chocolate ones as well, even with the white chocolate. I also used the same Kroger brand white bark coating as the Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Pretzels and melted it in the microwave just like I did with the pretzels.

Step 1: Carefully (super carefully) remove the tops of the cookies and set aside.

Step 2: Take a sucker stick (available at crafts stores in the cake decorating aisle) and dip into the melted chocolate.
Step 3: Put stick into the open cookie, then replace top. Let sit for a few minutes to set up.
Step 4: Dip the sucker into the chocolate, using a spoon to help coat the whole cookie.Step 5: Lay onto a parchment lined baking sheet and if you want a topping like sprinkles or peppermint pieces or crushed M&Ms or something sprinkle it on now, while the chocolate is wet. If you want to drizzle with another color of chocolate, just let it sit for a while to set and then add the chocolate.Step 6: Wrap the sucker in a 6"x3 1/2" treat bag and tie with cute ribbon and embellishments. These would be so cute given as a bouquet wrapped with more ribbon!The box of cookies cost me $3.29 and I dipped 12 cookies (about half the package). I used half of a $2.50 tray of bark coating, and the sucker sticks were $4.99 for 50, so your homework is to figure out how much each one of these was and leave a comment for me because all of that turkey yesterday slowed my brain way down.

I hope some of these ideas have helped you think of what you could give your own gluten free loved ones this season.

Happy giving!

  2. Ahhh, I knew someone out there would take the time to add it all up! Thanks! That's way cheaper than I thought they'd be, actually!
