This Easter you won’t be able to resist adding some of these delightful Oreo Lamb Lollipops to your Easter baskets. Each treat has a crunchy chocolate vanilla sandwich cookie dipped in white chocolate and is coated in fluffy mini marshmallows. They taste as sweet as they look.
Isn’t that what you just did when you saw these incredibly cute treats?
Won’t your kids do the same on Easter morning when they find them in their Easter baskets?
I am so blessed to be able to spend my days creating cute treats to share with you and when I make something that makes me squeal I just know you are going to love it too.
Yesterday, when I created these sweet little Easter treats, I couldn’t contain my enthusiasm. They now top my list of the cutest treats ever created in my kitchen. I realize that list is getting long, but seriously, I am so in love with these little guys.
Each woolly little lamb has an Oreo cookie center coated in white chocolate and loaded with tiny little marshmallows. Then it’s decorated with a black candy melt face and some tiny candy melt ears and legs.
I know you are going to rush out to grab everything you need to make these to put in your Easter baskets. How could you not?
To make your own Oreo Lamb Lollipops, start by separating your Oreo Cookies. I run a thin knife along the inside of one of the chocolate cookies, to get a nice split. Then brush each side of the Oreo with either melted and tempered white chocolate or melted white confectionery coating. I used Bright White Candy Melts to make mine. If you’d like more instructions on choosing and melting chocolate or confectionery coating (candy melts,) see my Chocolate Making Tips page.
Press a lollipop stick into the wet white chocolate and immediately press the two halves of the cookie back together. Then let the white chocolate harden.
While that’s happening, you can get busy making your sweet little lamb faces, ears, and legs. The faces are so easy. Just attach two candy eyes and one pink heart sprinkle nose to the flat side of some black candy melts using the melted white candy coating. If your black candy melts have white scratch marks all over them, rub them against the palm of your hand, smoothing out the scratches. They will be nice and black again.
For the ears and legs, you’ll need a very small tear drop cutter. (affiliate link) I used the half inch long tear drop cutter from the Autumn Carpenter’s Fondant Cutter set. Cut out two ears and two legs for each lamb. If you don’t have the cutter, you can melt some black candy melts and pipe the tear drops onto a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze them, then peel them off, to use instead.
Dip each Oreo lollipop into the melted white chocolate, remove and allow the excess to drip off. Then set in a big pile of tiny marshmallows. Set one lamb face in the center of the Oreo and toss marshmallows all over the cookie. Let the cookie sit for a few minutes before moving to a parchment lined baking sheet. Allow the chocolate to harden for 15 minutes.
You can find these tiny marshmallows (Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits,) in the grocery store, usually near the hot chocolate, but sometimes near the marshmallows. They are the perfect size for these lamb pops.
Use melted white chocolate to attach two ears and two legs to each lamb pop. To get the feet to stick in just the right spot you may need to remove one of the tiny marshmallows. Dip the tip of the tear drop shaped leg in white chocolate and press it onto the marshmallow coated cookie. Hold it in place until it sticks.
I thought my lollipops would look cute with colorful straws over the lollipop sticks, so I dipped the bottom end of my stick in some white chocolate and slid the straw over top. The chocolate helps to keep the straw secured in place.
