Take a classic cookie and turn it into something delicious this holiday season. Give my Holiday Oreo Pops a try and your whole family will be saying yum yum!
December is my most favorite month of the year. Not only is it the season of giving, but it is also the time of the year that you can bake all sorts of delicious goodies and sweets. During the entire month of December, I am busy in the kitchen making my festive treats. My husband’s workers love when I get to baking cause they know all of my treats are delicious. I have a whole slew of fun goodies that I make, and I plan to share them all with you!
One of my most favorite recipes and probably one of the easiest is my Holiday Oreo Pops. They are so simple and easy to do that even my daughters will help me make them. These are perfect for school parties, office parties, family parties, or even just to make over the weekend and enjoy with your little ones. You can also mix the colors up and make them match a birthday party theme or whatever you have on hand.
