Chocolate Dipped Oreo Pops
10 lollipop sticks
10 double-stuff Oreo cookies
11/2 cups (9 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
11/2 Tbsp solid vegetable shortening
Decoration: sprinkles, candy-covered chocolate drops (ice cream topping)
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Insert a lollipop stick into cream filling of each cookie. Melt chocolate and shortening in a small bowl in microwave; stir until smooth. Dip 1 cookie pop into melted chocolate, letting top of cookie rest on bottom of bowl for support. Spoon melted chocolate over cookie to coat. Transfer to lined baking sheet, using a fork to support pop from underneath if needed. Decorate with sprinkles, and chocolate drops. Let stand until set. Repeat with remaining cookie pops, remelting chocolate as needed. Wrap in food-safe plastic wrap.
