4th of July is right around the corner!
It’s time to break out all the fun patriotic treats and crafts to celebrate.
Today we have a special treat for your Independence day party.
4th of July Oreos!
I’ll admit the first time I made Oreo pops (like these St. Patties Day ones) I wasn’t sure they’d taste all that great.
But these things are delicious! The kids love them. I love them. Plus these are rich enough one or two go a long way!
Why not whip up a batch for your 4th of July party or BBQ?

How to Make These DIY 4th of July Oreos
With the supplies above, you should be able to turn the entire package of Oreos into 4th of July Oreo Pops. If you don’t need that many, you could use only 1 pack each of the blue and red candy melts.
Step 1: Prep Your Area
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. This will help make sure your Oreos don’t stick to the pan.
Step 2: Melt your Red and Blue Candy Coating
Next, melt your candy melts according to the directions on the bag. If the candy is too thick after it’s melted, you can add a small amount of vegetable or coconut oil to it. Add in a teaspoon at a time until you get a good consistency.
Whatever you do, do NOT add water. You’ll end up with a separated mess. (I know from experience.)
Step 3: Dip the Cookies
Dip each of your cookies into the candy melts. Remove your cookie and tap the extra off back into the bowl.
If air bubbles for you can pop them with a toothpick or smooth your candy with a spoon.
Place your cookie on the lined pan and allow it to set completely before moving to the next step. We popped ours into the freezer to speed up the setting process.
Step 4: Add Stars and Stripes
While your cookies set, transfer some of your melted candy into zip lock freezer bags. Snip one corner, creating your own makeshift piping bag. (Of course, you could use a real piping bag if you have one.)
Once your Oreos have hardened enough, create solid lines of alternating colors across your cookies in stripes. Then add some 4th of July sprinkles.
Step 5: Finish Your Cookies
Allow your cookies to completely set at room temperature or in the fridge. You can leave them as is or add cake pop sticks to the bottom to create Oreo Cookie Pops.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature until ready to serve.
