Peppermint Oreo Pops - Children's Birthday Fun

"There are four basic food groups: milk chocolate, dark chocolate,
white chocolate, and chocolate truffles."- Author Unknown
   I have a habit of overdoing it on projects. Then there's the saying that couples start to look alike. Combine those two items and you get last night's festivities. Today we celebrate the 7th birthday of our 'Lil Miss. With that comes the soft obligation to bring in a treat to her classroom at school. The Wife found a fun idea at Lulu the Baker, a blog that I shall be returning to for other ideas. It reminded me of the chocolate drizzled caramel popcorn I saw from the gals over at eighteen25 (some fun ideas to of things to make with/for the the kids).
   The steps were simple and went rather smoothly for it being our first time with confectionery chocolate. We had two bags, one being white chocolate flavor, the other mint. The biggest problem was pulling the tops off our Double Stuff Oreos. They kept breaking in half! Lulu had some "repair" ideas, but whole process took The Wife and I about 3 hours total, candy can sprinkle included.
   The result was a VERY excited 'Lil Miss. The report this afternoon was that the kids LOVED them,...just as much as their party favor bag. It was a way to show our little one some love, have her be the queen for the day, and deliver to her temporary subjects. The problem is, though, that she gave the two leftover pops to her carpool friends. Now I GOTS to make more. Mmmmm....
