Halloween is behind us and while our little goblins are devouring their sugary treats from yesterday’s festivities, I am bringing Dia de los Muertos to mi familia’. Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos is a Mexican holiday that is celebrated throughout Mexico as well as other cultures. We use this holiday in remembrance of our loved one that have passed away. For us, it is a day of remembrance and celebration of their lives. We celebrate this in connection to All Hallows’ Eve, All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. It is tradition that we offer those who passed on food as gift of remembrance.
Today we are making quick and easy Día de Muertos Oreo Pops. Since this is a no-bake recipe, it will take you very little prep time before you can enjoy these with your own familia in no time.
1 package of Double Stuff Oreo
1 bag of Toll House Baking Morsels (if you have almond bark that should be okay as well)
1 package of lollipop sticks
Small variety of decorating writing gel
Step One: Open your double stuff Oreo and lay flat on surface. Step Two: Insert your lollipop stick on the creamy filling side. Step Three: Use cream to create a barrier from the lollipop stick. Step Four: carefully cover the Oreo with the remainder cookie part to create a complete flat surface.
Once you have a complete Oreo with a lollipop stick secure in the middle, you are ready to dip Oreo in White Chocolate. This allows you to have a smooth writing/drawing surface for your Oreo Pop. While many of are aware of Día de Muertos treats with sugar skulls, that is not always the case. You can create these however you please. In our pictures we implemented crosses, flowers and heart to symbolize the love and respect we had for our loved ones who passed on. The writing gel chosen is vibrant and gives that same Día de los Muertos feeling without the sugar skulls that some may use. However you chose to decorate your Día de los Muertos Oreo Pops, remembering our loved ones who passed on important. We celebrate their lives, their death and the day will meet them on the other side.
