Hey Everyone! I hope your all enjoying your summer! Its been over 100 here for over 35 days and I need a cool down treat! This one is fun for the kids to make and eat! So get in the kitchen with your family and make this awesome dessert together!!

Chocolate-Dipped Oreo Pops
Grocery List:
10 lollipop sticks
10 double-stuff Oreo cookies
1 1/2 cups (9 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 Tbsp solid vegetable shortening
Decoration: green sprinkles (jimmies), candy-covered chocolate drops (ice cream topping)
How to make it:
1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Insert a lollipop stick into cream filling of each cookie.

2. Melt chocolate and shortening in a small bowl in microwave; stir until smooth.

3. Dip 1 cookie pop into melted chocolate, letting top of cookie rest on bottom of bowl for support. Spoon melted chocolate over cookie to coat. Transfer to lined baking sheet, using a fork to support pop from underneath if needed.

4. Sprinkle around edge with sprinkles, making a “wreath.” Add chocolate drops. Let stand until set. Repeat with remaining cookie pops, remelting chocolate as needed. Wrap in food-safe cellophane or plastic wrap; tie with bow for gift-giving.
