Breast Cancer Oreo Pops

how to make oreo pops

As Breast Cancer Awareness Month kicks off, I’d like to share with you some pink ribbon oreo pops that we made as a fundraiser.  To make them I followed tutorial on how to make Oreo Pops.  I purchased all my supplies at Walmart, from the oreo cookies to the pink and white candy melts to the lollipop sticks to the cello bags I wrapped them in (I already had pink satin ribbon to secure the bag around the pops).  Craft stores also sell everything but the Oreos – just look in or near the baking aisle.

Follow the instructions on the candy melts; first time I used melts I scorched them (I didn’t follow the instructions).  I made the zigzag shape and the pink ribbons by filling a quart-sized ziploc bag and snipping off just a teeny bit from one corner.  The candy coating hardens quickly so you can easily accomplish a package of oreos in an hour or so!

Thursday Theme – Black and White

It’s Thursday Theme time again, and we’re talking about Black and White today.  Glamorous, old Hollywood, classy… you can’t go wrong with black and white as a theme!

I’ve been sharing mostly about weddings in our Thursday Theme posts, but my first link is a super fun post about an Oscar party.  Many of the ideas work great for any black and white party theme AND she includes several fab free party downloads! I just couldn’t NOT share this post from Twig and Thistle, when I saw the tower of oreos

From Martha Stewart, a lovely cake and candy set-up… in blacks and whites.  Perfect for a black and white wedding theme.  To see more photos from this lovely wedding, including fabulous Black and White cookie favors, Click Here. (Make sure you scroll through the pics!).

From A Diamond in the Stuff, a tutorial for lovely flower pot topiaries.  These would be wonderful and inexpensive black and white centerpieces.  Although soap roses were used her, after I saw how she put together these flower pots (with round styrofoam balls), I knew that I would fill them with Black and White Oreo Pops.  Here is a great tutorial on how to make Oreo Pops!

 From Kara’s Party ideas, a lovely post about a black and white party… with a touch of yellow. Lots of great inspiration here!

And finally, from June Bug Weddings, a fun idea for using old records as bowls:  Here’s a step-by-step photo tutorial for how to make a bowl from a record.
