Ingredients Nutrition

  • 18 chocolate sandwich style cookies, with cream filling (Oreo's are good)
  • 1 12 cups pecans, toasted (or walnuts or nuts of choice)
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice (or orange liqueur)
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup (clear color)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 20 lollipop sticks
  • 1 (12 ounce) package milk chocolate chips or 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening

Directions

  1. In a large food processor bowl combine cookies and 3/4 cup of the nuts; pulse until cookies are crushed. Add orange juice, corn syrup, and cocoa powder; process until combined. Add remaining nuts; pulse until coarsely chopped.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape the cookie mixture into 1" balls. Place on a baking sheet, insert a lollipop stick, and freeze for about 30 minutes.
  3. In a small saucepan combine the chocolate chips and shortening. Cook and stir over medium-low heat just until melted. Remove from heat. Dip pops in melted chocolate. Return to baking sheet.
  4. Loosely cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate coating is set. If using liqueur, flavor will mellow after a day or two. Enjoy!
