Last week I shared with you some sweet Conversation Heart Cookies...but you didn't think that was the only V-day treat I had up my sleeve, did you?
This is one that is super easy to make, but looks like you put a lot of time into it. Plus, just change up the color of sprinkles and you're good to go for any holiday!
I present to you:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo Pops
What you'll need to make it happen:
Double Stuff Oreos
Creamy Peanut Butter
Lollipop Sticks (available at Michael's and Target)
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Shortening (Crisco works well)
Red Candy Melts (available at Michael's and Target)
How to make it happen:
Step 1: Carefully put your lollipop sticks in your oreo and push them about halfway through without cracking the cookies
Step 2: Apply a thick layer of peanut butter to the tops of the cookies, and stick 'em in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Step 3: Set up a double boiler and melt your chocolate chips and shortening. Pull out your oreos from the freezer and quickly coat them with chocolate. Do this using a spatula quickly- or else the peanut butter will melt all over!
Step 4: Add any sprinkles you want directly on the chocolate right away! Put them back in the freezer for another 15 minutes to harden everything up again.
Step 5: Melt your candy melts in the microwave and drizzle/dip your remaining cookies.
Step 6: After the chocolate is fully hard, tie little bows around the sticks and you're good to go!
The best part is you can make them ahead of time and keep them in the freezer so they'll still be great for Valentine's day!
I really dare you to find someone who doesn't love these. Make them and tell me if you do!
What's your favorite easy-to-make treat?

Pssssssssssst: If you'd like to give a whole bunch to one person, try this:
Take a small cardboard box and poke small holes it it using a pen tip. Push your cookie pops into the holes and surround with colorful tissue paper! You'll have the sweetest bouquet possible!
