Valentine’s Day Twinkie Pops

 

Valentine's Day Twinkie Pops

 

These little beauties are the most fun I’ve ever had making a Valentine’s Day dessert. It’s an easy dessert that looks so festive and pretty yet the process is super fun. I made them with my kids and we had a blast!

We were heading to my parent’s 56th wedding anniversary celebration at my sister’s house and thought it would be fun to make an easy dessert to bring. It was a low-key affair and these were a perfect Valentine’s dessert for the kids to enjoy (the adults ended up enjoying them, too)!

Valentine's Day Twinkie Pops

They’re basically just Twinkies that you dip in white chocolate then drizzle with more chocolate. And I warn you now: these are sweet. VERY sweet. But you’d probably already guessed that since they’re Twinkies dipped in chocolate. We also made an Oreo cookie version:

Valentine's Day Oreo Pops

These are the products I purchased (all were easily found at Michael’s except the Twinkies and Oreos):

  • Wilton White Candy Melts (two packages)
  • Wilton Dark Chocolate Candy Melts (one package)
  • Wilton Red Chocolate Candy Melts (one package)
  • Wilton Pink Chocolate Candy Melts (one package)
  • Wilton Chocolate Melting Bags
  • Tiny Valentine’s Day Heart Sprinkles
  • Lollipop Sticks (the longer ones)
  • Twinkies & Oreos

I’m sure you can easily figure out to make them. In fact, the only tip you’ll really need is to dip the lollipop sticks in the white chocolate before putting in the Twinkies, then freeze them for 10 minutes so that the sticks stay in the Twinkies. However, if you’d like more details, you can check out the site where I found these little beauties (you can see the step-by-step process there). For the Oreos, pop the cookies in the microwave for 20 seconds-ish until the filling is soft. Separate the wafers then drizzle a tiny bit of chocolate over the filling. Place a lollipop stick across the filling and press a little firmly. Place the other wafer back on top and allow to harden for about 30 minutes.

Anytime you can dip anything in chocolate I'm all for it. I saw these the other day and thought how cute they were. Great job - they look beautiful. :)
