Our family is in full “Halloween prep” mode! Pumpkins have been carved and porches have been decorated. I’m seriously considering having a Halloween party this year and have been brainstorming ideas for treats to serve at the party.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Last month my family was hosted by Wizarding World of Harry Potter inside of Universal Orlando, you can read all about our trip HERE.  One of my favorite parts of the Wizarding World was all of the fantastic shops!  If you’re a fan of the books or the movies, you may be especially excited to hear that there is a Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes inside of the new Diagon Alley section of the park.

It’s full of all kinds of fantastic toys, love potions, and candies.  We picked up the most adorable Delores Umbridge bike riding doll while there. I need to film it in “action” one of these days so that you can see how stinking cute it is.

We also stopped into Honeydukes and picked up a few treats to take home.  While there we grabbed some Bertie Bots Every Flavor Beans and a few Chocolate Frogs. We also picked up some candy (I can’t remember the name now) that “popped” on your mouth as you ate it.  It immediately made me think of pop rocks and I began wondering if we could make something similar at home.

Step One:

Begin by splitting the Oreo’s in half and sprinkling them with Pop Rocks. The Pop Rocks activate when in contact with water, so be sure to keep them dry during this process.

Melt the candy melts in a bowl or a tray.

Step Two:

Place one of the lollipop sticks into the Oreo. Spread the other half of the Oreo with the melted chocolate and place it on top of the lollipop stick.

  4. Your List of ingredients says White Candy Melts, but the Instructions says melted White Chocolate. Which is it? I have begun to do this for my daughter’s annual Halloween Party, and I have to say it was easy and fun until I got to the dipping the cookie pop into the melted white candy, not good, too thick, and adding water was a really bad idea. It broke down the thick consistency too much. So now I’m thinking it should have been White Chocolate. I ended up carefully spreading the candy melts on one side, waiting, and then the other. Unfortunately, they do look as good as yours, but I’m hoping the 13 year olds won’t care.

    1. If either candy melts or chocolate seizes up make it fluid again with a tiny amount of Crisco. Add a little at a time to the warm candy until it is dippable again.
