Basketball Oreo Pops

March Madness. There’s been a little more madness than usual this year, and my brackets were shot straight to hell on Day #3. {Thanks, Michigan State!} But it’s still exciting.

Now, I don’t know about what happens in your family, but my boys go a tad bit bananas for the tournament. We do a family bracket pool, and David has done no fewer than 8 brackets. Yes, 8.

These basketball Oreo pops are the cutest, and so easy to make!

So I try to do something fun for them every year. Last year, I came up with two party ideas {you can check them out here and here}, and they loved the basketball Oreo pops that I made so much that I decided to do them again.

I have a thing about Oreo pops. I’ve made Mickey Mouse ones and Frozen ones, and I absolutely love them. They are so insanely easy and fun — they literally took about 15 minutes to make — and as an added bonus, they are crazy delicious. 

To make the basketball ones, you start with Mega Stuff Oreos. You could use Double Stuff or even regular Oreos, but the Mega Stuff ones hold the sticks better, so I definitely recommend those.

Melt some orange candy melts according to the decorations on the package, dip in one end of the lollipop stick and then insert the stick into the side of one of your Oreos. The candy melts will help the stick stay in the filling.

Melt the rest of your candy melts {I ended up using a little less than one bag for 12 Oreo pops} and dip the Oreos fully in, so that the whole cookie is covered. Let the excess drip off, and then scrape the back of the cookie on the side of the bowl. That will make sure you don’t get a pool of candy melts on your baking sheet. Let set for 15-20 minutes or until the melts are completely set.

Finally, put 2-3 tablespoons of chocolate chips {or brown candy melts} into a small zip-top bag and microwave at 50% power for 30-45 second intervals until melted. Snip off a tiny corner of the bag and pipe the basketball lines on the top of the cookie. 

So cute, amiright??

Spring is such a fun time for basketball parties -- this one is full of quick, fun and easy ideas. And it includes a recipe for Slam Dunk Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Dip! Um, ok!! #EasyBracketParty #ad

Who do you have winning your bracket this year? Is your bracket busted as badly as mine??

This Frozen birthday party has so many ideas to steal -- like Melted Snowmen instead of water! (So cute!) Bonus: it was a boy's party, so it's more Olaf than Elsa and Anna. So much fun!
