Oreo Cookie Pops!

Oreo Cookie Pops! Debuting at Clarissa's 21st party.

Here are my Oreo Cookie Pops, making their debut at my girlfriend Clarissa’s 21st birthday celebration earlier this afternoon!

After all the hard work yesterday and some assistance from K, I’m quite pleased with how they turned out. Also that, as a whole, the dessert was rather well-received at the party. I couldn’t be more satisfied.

It’s amazing how they fit right into her theme of “madly eclectic”; the girls especially were attracted by its cute exterior and someone even commented she felt like a little girl again munching on a lolly 🙂

Oh, and did I mention it was a really sweet party?

On an interesting side note, a quick search on Google (Wikipedia, more like) will tell you that the name originated somewhere in the 18th or 19th century, and is used to refer to “spicy or zesty food”. Not sure if today’s featured dish is necessarily spicy, but you can be sure I added just enough zest to it!

Definitely a healthier option than your usual Deviled Eggs, I’ve used only half the amount of egg yolks and replaced it with tons of avocado instead — ah, that’s easy to guess, considering the name I gave this dish. But, for the special ingredient that gives this version an “Ely twist”, you’ll have to read on.
