Ingredients

Equipment

  • non-stick mat
  • silicone rolling pin
  • blossom plunger cutter optional
  • sharp knife
  • heatproof bowl
  • saucepan
  • spatula
  • 14 cake-pop sticks

Ingredients

  • icing sugar for dusting
  • orange sugarpaste 60g
  • Oreo™ biscuits 154g pack
  • yellow candy melts 1 bag
  • yellow shimmer sprinkles optional
  • 28 googly eyes or a black icing writer

Method

  • Step 1

    27352

    Dust the non-stick mat with a little icing sugar or cornflour. Using the silicone rolling pin, roll out a small amount of orange sugarpaste to about 4mm in thickness. Cut four flowers per chick for the wings and feet using a blossom plunger cutter.

    Roll 14 small balls of sugarpaste and pinch the tops to make a small cone-shaped beak for each chick.

  • Step 2

    27353

    Separate the two halves of your Oreos™ using a sharp knife. Roll the Oreo™ along the knife – that way there is less chance of it snapping.

    TIP: If you don’t have a blossom plunger cutter, roll small balls of orange sugarpaste and flatten between your thumb and index finger.

  • Step 3

    27354

    Set a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water over a medium heat (bain-marie). Add the candy melts to the bowl and stir for 2–5 minutes until melted.

  • Step 4

    27355

    Dip the ends of the cake-pop sticks into the melted chocolate and put them in the centre of each Oreo™. Carefully sandwich the two halves of the Oreos™ back together. Let the chocolate set for around 5 minutes.

  • Step 5

    27356

    Dunk your Oreo™ pops in the melted chocolate and top immediately with the shimmer sprinkles whilst the chocolate is still soft.

  • Step 6

    Add the googly eyes, wings, feet and beak. Set aside for 5–10 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.

    And eat!

    TIP: You can also melt the candy melts in a microwave, stirring every 20 seconds until completely melted. Add a little vegetable shortening if the candy melts feel too thick.

    TIP: If your kids just can’t wait, you can put the Oreo™ pops in the freezer to speed up the setting of the chocolate.
