This is one of our easy 4th of July recipes you will want to bookmark.
Why This Recipe
While I love to make 4th of July desserts from scratch, sometimes half-homemade works out just as well. I call these recipes practically homemade.
This fun 4th of July dessert idea is both decorative and delicious. Ores are covered in flavors and colors and are eaten on a stick for added fun.
These not only taste great but Oreo Pops are super simple to make. They are ready to eat in about 45 minutes. Put them in cups or on a styrofoam base and they look very festive on the dessert table too!
Ingredients For 4th of July Dessert Oreos
You will just need a few ingredients for this recipe
Oreos - You will want to use double stuff Oreos. You can also use either chocolate or Vanilla Oreos. I would not recommend using the standard Oreo because, well, they are too thin for the straws to fit.
Candy Melts - You will need three types of candy melts for this recipe - White, Red, and Blue. You can just double up on the white and use food coloring, but it will save you time to use the three colors as is.
Sprinkles - Use some decorative sprinkles in Red, White, and Blue.
Tools and Kitchen Equipment Needed
- Parchment lined baking sheet
- Straws or lollipop sticks - these work great!
How to Make Red White and Blue Oreo Pops

- Melts candy melts in a bowl and dip the straw or sticks into the bowl.
- Insert the straw/stick into the stuffing of the oreo about ½" deep.
- Add a little candy melt mixture to the base of the cookie.
- Let sit on a parchment paper while you repeat for the other cookies.
- Then dip the cookies in the candy melt mixture.
. Top with sprinkles immediately.
These are so festive and fun!
Timesaving Tips to make this perfect every time
- If it is raining or you are in a moisture-heavy area the cookies will take longer to set.
- Avoid putting them in the fridge to set, placing them in front of a fan will aid in the process.
- If the chocolate is too thick to dip add 1 tablespoon of coconut, olive, or vegetable oil and stir until smooth.
Do I need a candy mold for Covered Oreos?
No, you do not need any candy mold for this recipe.
How Should I Serve Oreo Pops?
These pops are so cute that they can be part of the decor. Place a few in a mason jar or glass with some colored tissue paper and a few decorative straws. They look adoarable! These also make a fun party favor.
