I run the concession stand at my daughter's school and today is the semifinals of the girls basketball tournament. I have been wanting to make oreo pops for awhile now and thought of making them into basketballs. I'm going to sell them at the stand today.
The pops were a bit difficult to make. The biggest issue was the cookie falling off of the stick when dipping into the melted chocolate. After doing some research, the trick is to open up the cookie, dip the end of the stick in the melted chocolate then sandwiching the cookie back together over the stick. The melted chocolate acts like glue. Would I make these again? Probably, but it doesn't look as easy as originally thought.
