oreo dipped apples for teacher

Here’s what you need: green air heads, oreos (double stuffed in mandatory…the one direction kind is optional)  lollipop sticks and candy melts (everything can be found at walmart!!) how to make oreo dipped in chocolate apples

You  need to shove the lollipop stick in the yummy white stuff of the oreo (this is why you need double stuffed (on top of the fact that they ARE the best)  the extra stuffing fits the stick perfectly. Press on the cookies to make sure the stick is stuck inside.

Then take some clean shears and cut the airhead into little leaves, and stems.

Melt the red candy melts. Dip in the oreo on a stick and with a spoon you are going to make sure the oreo gets covered. Then pull it out and let the excess drip off and place in a Styrofoam (or a box with holes in it.)
