M-I-C... K-E-Y... M-O-U-S-E!!! In chocolate-covered Oreo form! ♥ Yes, trust me, I know! The other day I was going through major Disney withdrawal. We are barely starting to plan our October trip to Walt Disney World (more about that in a later post) and I am just already itching to go. Plus I love baking and really wanted to make something kinda cool. I knew I wanted to combine these two things and make something Disney-inspired. I thought and thought but just couldn't come up with something that seemed perfect.
Picture found at Pooh the BearThen it came to me in the shower (yes, I'm one of those who does my best thinking in the shower). At first I really wanted to do these as cake pops. Because we all know how incredible cake pops are! But I had just done Christmas cake pops and have already planned on making some for Easter (cute little chicks? Easter eggs? Not sure yet.) so I thought I would lay off of the cake pops until then.
It is then that I remembered I really wanted to try out the dipped Oreos that Jamie at Momma's Playground did for Christmas. We always take each other's ideas and give them our own little twist. I love that. She took my reindeer cake pops, turned them into Oreos, and now I'm turning her Oreos into Mickey pops! You don't understand how excited I was to try this! I stuck a popsicle stick into the Oreo, dipped them into melted chocolate candy melts, and stuck them in the freezer. Once they were hardened, I dipped some whole candy melts into melted ones and stuck them on as ears.
I just LOVE them! But, they look a little plain, don't they? I have BIG plans for these little guys. But, I live in the middle of nowhere and have to order a lot of things offline so it will be a little while before I can reveal that little secret. ;)
