Pot of Gold Pops

St. Patrick's Day Pot of Gold Pops. SO cute!! Tutorial and recipe on { lilluna.com }
I am so excited to share this post with you today!
Around Joyin the Jumble, we are big fans of Oreo Truffles…
Not just because they taste good,
But they are easy to make, and easily customizable for every whim:)
We never really celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at our house before.
Since we love rainbows, and the color green…
I figured it was about time to remedy that:)

Directions
*Break the 30 Oreo cookies into pieces and pulverize in a food
processor.
Mine is about the texture and size of corn meal.
*Mash the softened cream cheese with the cookie crumbs until well
incorporated and no white remains.
*Line a small pan with wax paper.
*For the large pops, scoop 2 Tablespoons, form a ball, and place on
wax paper.
*For the small pops, scoop 1 Tablespoon, form a ball, and place on wax
paper.
*Place pan in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
*Melt five of the chocolate melts and dip the sucker stick tips in,
then place one in each ball.
Chill for two minutes.
*Melt the Mint chips at 50% power in 30 second intervals, stirring
until melted.
*Slightly flatten the balls, then dip them in the mint melts, lightly
tapping the excess on the side.
*Place the sticks in some
kind of base
to harden.
*Melt the black melts and the shortening in the microwave in 30 second
intervals.
*Dip the balls in the melts so that they are now double coated.
*Put some of the black melts in a ziplock bag, snip a small corner and
pipe on the cauldron rims and handles.
*Fill the “top” of the cauldron with a scarce amount of melted
chocolate, then immediately pour the gold sprinkles.

It seems like a lot of steps, but if you have your space cleaned and
cleared…
and everything on hand, it will move fairly quickly.
These treats are perfect for my little leprechauns and their daddy.

Reality Check-

*I like my Oreo Truffles smaller,
so that there is a more even ratio of crunchy outer shell to
filling.

*You can change this recipe up
and use Thin Mints, Mint Oreo, Raspberry Oreos, Vanilla
Oreos.

*If you use a different flavor of
Oreo, don’t use the mint chips… just double dip them in the outer
coating.

*When you take pictures, make
sure there is lots of natural light if you can help it, and shoot in
odd numbers.

Enjoy, and have a pinch free St.
Patrick’s Day:)
