TICK TOCK oreo NEW YEAR’S CLOCK pop’s
I COULD CRY- to understand the un-perfected clock pop’s you would have to read this post first………
I had this vision of smooth coated white oreo pops with perfectly drawn clocks on top. The vision in my head is still so darling and perfect. THESE, WELL… they are not. I still have a hard time posting them, In fact I can say this is my first CRAFT FAIL! I am so bummed. However, I wanted to share this with you all because maybe you all are better at Oreo Pops then I. This was my very first attempt at making oreo pops, and sadly it will probably be my last. That said, I do realize that practice makes perfect, but wasting money and loosing more nerves, I could probably go without practice on this one. I apologize for the poop post I am giving you, and I don’t want to discourage any of you, but I hated this project from start to finish. For starters dipping oreo’s -ie-yi-yi… first trying to get the stick in and hope that nothing breaks, or that the weight of the candy melts don’t pull the oreo’s off, and finally hoping that the oreo pop’s don’t break before you lay them down to cool….. ALL-“DIFFICULT”.
As I went through each pop I found what worked better each time I went through the cycle. Dip the stick in the melted candies, tap the excess off by hitting the stick on the rim of the bowl, gently wiggle the stick into the “fattest” side of the oreo’s frosting. Then tip your bowl and lay the oreo down so that the bowl is holding the one side, spoon the melted candies over the oreo and then gently pick it up holding a large cereal spoon under the oreo. Carry it to the pan with parchment paper on it, and lay it to cool. Lastly, gently tap the pan up and down wiggling out the wrinkles to the oreo pops. Chill in fridge for 15- 20 mins. draw clocks on the pops, GOOD GOOD GOOD LUCK.
P.S. these would look so much better with the correct fondant/cake pen. I bought Wilton’s Cake markers and well… they suck!!! I didn’t want to drive all the way to Michael’s for one stinken fondant pen, and my Walmart only had the markers. Once again, these pops can come out so much better. Sighhhhh.
FOR NOW THESE ARE WHAT MINE LOOK LIKE, and if you don’t pin them… Well, I don’t blame you.

Anything that has to do with dipping chocolate is a fail for me, also I tried those markers for chocolate covered marshmallow pumpkins and they failed too. But I LOVE the idea!!! Thanks for keeping us inspired!
First of all, that you would even admit a craft fail is endearing to me! I love how you bust yourself at every turn and tell us all how awful this really was.
Secondly, you are being waaaaaaayyyyy too hard on yourself. These are cute! I get where you were going with them and they are inspiring. I hope you have a happy new year and I just know that regardless of how they look, they will taste divine!
Well I appreciate a post done on a failure. It helps to know that I’m not the only one who has beautiful visions that don’t live up to my expectations!! They’re cute anyways!!!! 🙂
Wonderful work as usual!!!
I think they turned out cute Jen. I bought those same markers…and you are RIGHT, they do totally suck! I think the clock oreo pops are a super cute idea. I am pinning and will feature them on my facebook page!
Oh So cute!! what a GREAT idea… I have NEVER attempted cake or oreo pops or used those markers… So to me I think you did a FABULOUS job.. Because Hey!! You tried.. 🙂 What about those printable edible paper thingys… maybe you could make clock faces and then attach them to the cookie… 🙂
You poor dear! I know how upsetting it is when projects don’t go the way you had pictured. I think they still look cute, can only imagine how wonderful the picture in your mind is. So I have to say from the tiny pic I saw at first(on my iPhone) I thought you had printed and edible image. So if you attempt this project again maybe that would work better. Sorry Jen!
Good for you for making an honest post about why these didn’t work for you. There are few things more frustrating than having an idea clearly in your mind and not having it meet your expectations. That having been said, I think you’re being kind of hard on yourself. The pops are cute and, if they’re not perfect, that just lets people know that you cared enough to make them yourself.
OMG, that is hysterical! I so needed a giggle today. I can just feel your frustration, and I feel your pain.
BTW – I think they turned out so cute.
What a CUTE, CUTE idea! I love it- My grandkids would love these~ You are amazing with all your ideas- xo Diana
Cute! Cute! Cute!
I tried to do oreo mummies for Halloween…yeah, I got one covered in chocolate and gave up.
Mine were a MAJOR FAIL! I think yours turned out pretty darn cute!
Wow! I liked it! I wish you and your family a Happy New Year! If you want to see Antalya’s Miss Santa Girls, visit my blog.. Thanx..
I think they look pretty good! I have never had luck with Oreo pops. I usually use the Oreo Cakesters instead. They seem to be a little easier to deal with because they are thicker.
But they still look pretty good, although I do understand when you are frustrated and just can’t deal with them anymore 🙂
I think you are being too hard on yourself. They are cute. I do understand the frustration…I often feel the same way when I am sewing something and it takes me 4 different tries to get something right. By the time I finish, I vow to never make another one again! But I do eventually make another. 😉 At your height of frustration you just want to throw everything at the wall. ha ha. Gavin was sitting next to me when it popped up and he said, “those are a cool idea.” So from the eyes of a 10 year old boy they are pretty cool. So I am sure your kids will enjoy them no matter what.
They still turned out cute. Hate when the end product looks so different from what I had pictured. =o) Happy New Year!
