BOO Box of Cookie Pops

I work from home and I love it. For some people it’s too solitary but it’s perfect for me. Mr. Chocolate works in a traditional office setting, and even though I don’t miss going to that environment every day, I do miss the kind of holiday celebrations that offices usually have. So I kinda have the best of both worlds because I get to make stuff for him to take to his office ( even though he pretends he’s the holiday Scrooge meister) . For Halloween , I made him a “BOO” box of Oreo pops.

The basic ingredients:
Halloween Oreo Pops
  • Halloween Oreos
  • Wilton Candy Melts
  • Wilton Decorative Icing
  • Wilton Candy Skulls
  • Lollipop Sticks
Candy Melts

Melted the candy melts using a double boiler. Inserted a stick in each cookie. For some reason the consistency was thicker than usual so rather than dip the cookies, I ended up glopping and smearing ( that’s a technical cooking term) the melted candy on the cookies. Glop a plop on with a spoon and smear with the back of the spoon. Wasn’t going for precision here. Placed these on wax paper to set . When they were set but not totally dry, put one of the skulls in the center.

Michaels didn’t have enough of the skulls so I got some black icing and made Jack Skellington-ish faces on the rest. Once they were all dry, I wrapped each in a cello bag and tied with Halloween themed ribbon.
Grabbed a shoe box and covered with DCWV’s Ghosts and Goblins paper and KandCo Halloween adhesive scrapbook borders and used some of this weird packing material I’d saved to re-use because it was so funky and recyclable.

This is the packing stuff that I thought was perfect for this box:
