Muppet Babies: Kermit the Frog Oreo Pops. Throwing a Muppet Babies Party or just want to celebrate your little Muppets fan with some cute Kermit the Frog treats? This easy DIY Kermit the Frog Oreo Pops tutorial is for you. I’m sharing this tutorial to celebrate the release of Muppet Babies: Time to Play! on DVD. Be sure to check out our other DVD reviews. Also check out our other Dessert Tutorials.
I remember watching Muppet Babies when I was a kid. I loved Miss Piggy. She was totally my homegirl. When I heard that Disney Junior was releasing a reimagined “Muppet Babies” chronicling the hilarious playroom antics of a young Kermit the Frog, Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and Animal and a brand-new Muppet Baby, Summer Penguin, I was skeptical as to whether it would even hold a candle to the original.
My take after having literally watched each episode 50 times…it’s even better. (Yes, 50 times…my little one year old is OBSESSED with Muppets Babies. He laughs as soon as the theme music starts and it is currently the ONLY thing he will sit still to watch!) We love the characters and the storylines. The imaginative part of the stories are so well done and the details are spot on!!
It is a success…and in the words of Summer Penguin, “Success tastes a lot like graham cracker!”
To help us enjoy the Muppet Babies, I made some super cute and easy Kermit the Frog Oreo Pops.
Here’s how to make these super cute Kermit the Frog Oreo Pops:
- Oreo Pop mold
- Lollipop Sticks
- Green Candy Melts
- Large White Candy Eyes
- Black Edible Food Marker
- Red Fondant
Choose some Oreos. Did you know Oreos come in tons of flavor combos now? For this tutorial, my daughters requested mint Oreos because Kermit is green. How could I say no to that?? Once you have your Oreos, open them up and push one of the lollipop sticks into the cream filling. Then carefully close the Oreo with the stick inside. Be careful not to press down too hard so you don’t break the cookie.
Pour the Green Candy Melts into a microwave safe container. I can usually get about 8 Oreo pops from one bag of Candy melts. Put the Melts in the microwave for 30secs at a time, stopping to stir the candy until it is melted. Once melted, use a soup to fill the Oreo Pop mold half way full with melted candy.
Press the Cookie into the mold. Lightly push the Oreo until it is almost all the way to the bottom, making sure to not push it so far it shows on the bottom. Fill the Mold with additional melted candy until full. Use the back of the spoon to smooth the chocolate on the top as needed. Place into the Refrigerator to set the chocolate.
Using the black food marker, draw a small oval shape on the sides of each large eye pupil to make the eyes look like Kermit the Frog’s eyes. This will help to give the Kermit the Frog Oreo Pops Kermit’s signature eyes.
Once the Oreo Pops are done setting (at least 15 mins). Pull them out of the fridge and using a very small amount of melted green candy as a glue, place the large candy eyes onto the Kermit the Frog Oreo Pops. Return to Fridge to cool for another 5 mins before adding the mouth.
I made two separate expressions for Kermit. The first was drawn on with the food markers. I made a rounded “V” shape with little half circle smile lines in the corners to create Kermit’s “thinking” face. To make the big Kermit the Frog smile, I rolled out Red fondant and cut a small half moon shape and placed it on the Kermit the Frog Oreo Pop with the green candy “glue”.
Easy Peasy and oh so much fun to eat.
