Do you love basketball? If the answer is yes, why not whip up some of these oreo basketball pops for an easy and fun treat to eat while you watch the game.

For years my oldest (who is not 14) struggled to find his “thing”. He tried all kinds of different sports over the years and he even took drum lesson for a few years. We thought we finally found something he loved in karate, but the horrible people that ran his dojo ended up making him hate something he really loved for a while there.

Anyways, last year (almost two full years after he quit karate), it happened. He’s FINALLY found “his thing” – basketball. He plays on a church league run by my town, which he absolutely loves! His team made the playoffs this season and the first playoff game is this weekend so I made these Oreo basketball pops to celebrate the accomplishment. They are wicked easy to make and seriously, who doesn’t love chocolate covered Oreos?
