St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow..Don't
forget to wear Green or get pinched!
Where did that idea come from??

Well, I have a Delicious "TO DIE FOR"
St. Patrick's Day TREAT..."CHOC/MINT

I made these for 3 lovely ladies that my
daughter & I "Visit" each month for our
church. It consists of 3 differently decorated
suckers. (See Photos BELOW)

Supplies Needed:
Oreo Mint Cookies
Parchment/wax paper
White & Green Candy Melts
Lollipop/Sucker Sticks/bags
Curling Ribbon/or Twists

1) Lay out some Wax Paper on counter top.

Take Oreos & separate them (See Photo

2) At 30 sec. increments..microwave Candy Melts.

3) Take a Lollipop Stick & dip into
melted candy (will look like a Q-tip) &
place in middle of Oreo. Press down
softly into green frosting)

4) Place top of Oreo on top of
stick & press gently..Let harden
(about 5-10 min) See Photo BELOW

5) Dip hardened Suckers into melted
coating (making sure all sides & edges
are coated) See Photo BELOW

6) Decorate however you choose. I
used green sprinkles, Green Candy Melts,
White nonpareils (See BELOW)

7) Decorated & protected by plastic bags
these delicious "Choc/Mint Cookie Suckers"
are ready for gift giving...Friends, Neighbors,
Co-workers are going to ask you for the RECIPE!

  7. I love the double-decker white covered Oreo's during Christmas. They are the best and I wish they sold them year round. Thanks for showing that you can make them homemade now! I can't believe Christmas is right around the corner. I have to start my gift shopping, food lists, and making sure I have the right pins for the occasion.
