My daughter’s first Disney Princess love was Ariel from The Little Mermaid. Truth be told, she’s still a real big fan of Ariel’s.

When she has friends over and they play dress up, my daughter always shows up to the party table dressed as the little mermaid. Her best friend always comes as Belle from Beauty and the Beast – which is her favorite Disney character.

Got to love that 4-year-old-forced-smile. lol

I wanted to make the girls a treat for their play date so some Little Mermaid inspired Oreo Cookie Pops were in order. My next try will be for Beauty and the Beast inspired cookies for our little “Belle.” I sent one of these to school as dessert for my daughter’s lunch and all the girls on her table asked if they could have one, too. Little things like that truly make my heart happy so I sent in some extras the following day to school. The girls really enjoyed their cookie treats.

Now, the girls – they don’t care about perfection. Some of the cookies I thought were “less than perfect” and shouldn’t hit the pages of the blog were the ones my daughter thought were the most beautiful. So I want to tell you today that your cookies do not have to be picture perfect, no matter what you do, the cookie pops are already perfect to your kids. My daughter especially liked the mermaid tail design and her best friend liked the “mermaid hair” style cookies.

If you just want to match the Little Mermaid color scheme without breaking the bank, go with the purple and green theme. The possibilities are endless with these cookie pops. So just let your imagination run wild and your creativity flow!   

Start by securing the pop stick inside the cookie with some extra melting chocolate. I happened to have some extra white so I used that – but you can use any color you have melted for your project.

Place the lid back on the cookie and gently press it together and allow it to cool. This takes only a couple minutes, but if you want to speed the process along, you can put them in the freezer or the fridge for a few minutes. Then you will dip them in your base color. I don’t use a fancy mold or anything, I just dip the cookie into the melting chocolate, shake off the excess, and spread it evenly with a small cake spatula or butter knife (table knife) to get an even coating. Then I lay the cookies down onto a parchment or wax paper-lined cookie sheet or baking tray and allow them to set. If I am adding candies directly to this layer of chocolate, I add them now and gently push them down into the chocolate. You only have a couple of minutes for this step before the chocolate sets up, so have your candies at the ready. Usually, my candies are making an appearance after the second color goes down, so I don’t worry about them until I prep for the next color.

Allow the base layer to cool completely before adding the next layer of chocolate if you want it to stand up off the top of the cookie. If you want to swirl colors, add the second color while the first coat is still warm and swirl with a toothpick. I did this with our Frozen themed cookies to look like snow flurries.  

I usually pipe my second color layer with the pre-warned chocolate I place into a zip-top bag. I worked the chocolate into one corner of the bag and then snip a small hole off the corner of the bag to pipe the lines, scales, or hair. If you have cake decorating bags and tip you prefer to use, you can but no special equipment is really needed for these whimsical cookies. Using the zip-top bag also makes clean up easy. Next, add the small candies you’re adding to this layer before it sets; about 2-5 minutes. Here I used some Wilton Brand decorating flowers and small white pearl candies.

Display them for the party or simply bag them up as party favors with treat wrappers or a fold-over style sandwich bag and secure with a twist tie, piece or ribbon or pipe cleaner. You can even use a snack size zip-top bag and put the entire cookie and stick inside. It’s totally up to you!

The kids are sure to absolutely adore them no matter how you present them so just have fun!

Ingredients
  

  • 16   Oreo cookies , double stuffed
  • 16 pkg lollipop sticks
  • 1   bag light green melting wafers
  • 1 bag red melting wafers
  • 1 bag light purple melting wafers
  • assorted decorating candies and Wilton brand cake decorating flowers
  • 16 treat bags , sandwich bags, or snack bags (optional)
  • 16 twist ties , pipe cleaners, or ribbon (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Melt the wafers in the microwave according to the package instructions. I use 50% power for 1 minute. I then stir and add an additional 30 seconds if necessary. You want to avoid overheating the chocolate (making it too hot), as this will cause it to seize up and there is no coming back from that - it winds up in the trash. It is okay to warm it more than once but be mindful not to overheat it.
  • Start by securing the pop stick inside the cookie with some extra melting chocolate. I happened to have some extra white so I used that - but you can use any color you have melted for your project.
  • Place the lid back on the cookie and gently press it together and allow it to cool. This takes only a couple minutes but if you want to speed the process along, you can put them in the freezer or the fridge for a few minutes.
  • After the stick is secure, dip the cookies in your base color. I don't use a fancy mold or anything, I just dip the cookie into the melting chocolate, shake off any excess, and then spread it evenly with a small cake spatula or butter knife (table knife) to get an even coating.
  • Lay the cookies down onto a parchment or wax paper-lined cookie sheet or baking tray and allow them to set. If you are adding candies directly to this layer of chocolate, add them now and gently push them down into the chocolate, if necessary, to secure them. You only have a couple of minutes for this step so have them at the ready.
  • Allow this layer to cool completely before adding the next layer of chocolate if you want it to stand out off the top of the cookie. If you want to swirl colors, add the second color while the first coat is still warm and swirl with a toothpick. I did this with our Frozen themed cookies to look like snow flurries.
  • I piped my second color layer with warned chocolate I put into a zip-top bag. I worked it to one corner of the bag and then snipped a small hole to pipe. If you have the cake decorating accessories and wish to use those, you can but no special equipment is really needed for these whimsical cookies.
  • Add candies to this layer before it sets; about 2-5 minutes.
  • Display them for the party or bag them up with a treat wrapper or a fold-over style sandwich bag and secure with a twist tie, piece or ribbon or pipe cleaner. You can even use a snack size zip-top bag and put the entire cookie and stick inside. It's totally up to you!
  • The kids are sure to absolutely adore them no matter how you present them so just have fun!
