Founder of BKD, Adelle shares her recipe for Oreo™ chick pops, from her book 'BAKED: Amazing Bakes to Create With Your Child'
Easter chick pops recipe, by Adelle Smith at BKD
"I love making these no-bake treats with my family. They are quick and easy to make, and what could be cuter and yummier than an Oreo™ chick pop for your Easter celebrations?"
Makes 14 pops
• non-stick mat
• silicone rolling pin
• blossom plunger cutter (optional)
• sharp knife
• heatproof bowl
• 14 cake-pop sticks
icing sugar, for dusting
60g orange sugarpaste
154g-pack Oreo™ biscuits
1 bag yellow candy melts
yellow shimmer sprinkles (optional)
28 googly eyes or a black icing writer
01 - Dust the non-stick mat with a little icing sugar or cornflour. Using the silicone rolling pin, roll out a small amount of orange sugarpaste to about 4mm in thickness. Cut four flowers per chick for the wings and feet using a blossom plunger cutter.
Roll 14 small balls of sugarpaste and pinch the tops to make a small cone-shaped beak for each chick.
02 Separate the two halves of your Oreos™ using a sharp knife. Roll the Oreo™ along the knife – that way there is less chance of it snapping.
TIP: If you don’t have a blossom plunger cutter, roll small balls of orange sugarpaste and flatten between your thumb and index finger.
03 Set a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water over a medium heat (bain-marie). Add the candy melts to the bowl and stir for 2–5 minutes until melted.
04 Dip the ends of the cake-pop sticks into the melted chocolate and put them in the centre of each Oreo™. Carefully sandwich the two halves of the Oreos™ back together. Let the chocolate set for around 5 minutes.
05 Dunk your Oreo™ pops in the melted chocolate and top immediately with the shimmer sprinkles whilst the chocolate is still soft.
06 - Add the googly eyes, wings, feet and beak. Set aside for 5–10 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
TIP: You can also melt the candy melts in a microwave, stirring every 20 seconds until completely melted. Add a little vegetable shortening if the candy melts feel too thick.
TIP: If your kids just can’t wait, you can put the Oreo™ pops in the freezer to speed up the setting of the chocolate.
