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!


  1. If you honestly want to know, excluding the time you put into them, the each cost 34.105 cents a piece.

    They look delicious.

  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!
