MATERIALS NEEDED for 12 Rainbow Sprinkles Surprise Pops:
12 Rainbow Mix Candy Cups
12 Mini Wood Ice Cream Spoons 
1/2  Gallon of Vanilla Ice Cream
12 Regular Oreo® Cookies - Double Stuff will be TOO thick for the insertion of the wood spoon - trust me!
Rainbow Sprinkles
Ziploc Bag for piping softened ice cream
Large Cup or Bowl to hold the Ziploc bag when you aren't using it

INSTRUCTIONS (you'll be working quickly to assemble and freeze)
1. Allow the ice cream to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
2. While the ice cream is softening, arrange Rainbow Candy Cups on a small tray or cookie sheet. Be sure the size of the tray will transfer easily to your freezer.
3. Gather the Oreos®, sprinkles and wood spoons and have them ready for the quick assembly process.
4. Using a large kitchen spoon, transfer the ice cream from container to a Ziploc bag and seal.
5. Snip off a corner of the Ziploc bag with scissors and pipe a small amount of ice cream into the bottom of each candy cup.
6. Press an Oreo® cookie into the piped ice cream without pushing it all the way to the bottom of the cup, unless you prefer to be able to see the Oreo® when it's unwrapped.
7. Pipe on more ice cream until the candy cup is filled. If needed, use the back of a small spoon to smooth and level the ice cream. Be sure to leave just enough room to add sprinkles without having them spill over the edge of the candy cup.
8. Insert wooden spoon.
9. Add rainbow sprinkles to the top of the ice cream. I recommend doing this while standing over a sink or trash can.
10. Make sure your spoons are standing up straight and then place the completed Surprise Pops in freezer for 2-4 hours or until frozen solid.(If preparing for a party, overnight may be your best option).
11. Just before serving, dump off any loose sprinkles from each Surprise Pop that did not adhere during freezing.
11. Serve immediately.

Guests can easily unwrap the Surprise Pop and devour immediately. For guests who prefer to eat them with a spoon, DO NOT PEEL the candy cup off. Allow the ice cream to soften enough to remove the spoon.  Either way, the Oreo™ Surprise inside is sure to create a lot of smiles.

    Hm...Im not sure about the kids loving this one...I think the adults would love this one more! How completely gorgeous is this and incredibly yummy. Us adults would be fighting the kids for this one...I wonder who would win?!

    • Kim 08/08/2013

      Perfect for both! I can't wait to try them and "surprise" the kids! :)

    • Jessica | Pen N' Paperflowers 08/08/2013

      Catherine...Ha! You are right! Adults love them just as much as kids - if not a little more, only because we can really appreciate the simple pleasures in life! Am I right? I considered hiding them from the kids at first and eating them all myself but then I decided to share them. Only because I needed them to sample them and give me honest feedback before sharing them here. They LOVED them! And of course...so did I! I'm so glad you love them too! Thanks for commenting!!

  8. Fazendo picolés em casa! : Mil dicas de mãe 02/14/2014

    […] Picolé para festa: embora nas imagens seja usada a bolacha Negresco, você pode reproduzir a receita com outra bolacha redonda qualquer (eu até prefiro, para evitar usar bolacha recheada – que de saudável não tem nada!). O truque é usar uma forminha de cupcake como forma para o picolé, colocar uma pá de madeira como cabo e, se desejar um toque especial,  finalizar com granulado colorido! Mas lembre-se: tire do congelador na hora da festa e sirva logo em seguida! O passo-a-passo (em inglês) você vê aqui. […]
