Oreo Cookie Cake Pops


Hi Everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know that I am reading everyones' messages, but since I am traveling I will not be able to respond until after I am home.  Thank you for all of your wonderful comments.
Cyber hugs to all.

This is a version of a recipe that my friend Shawna makes for parties.  They taste decadent, and I could eat about a million of them.  Of course, since I do not want to gain all of the weight back that I have lost, I limit myself to two or three.

Anyway, enough of that.  I have had to change this recipe a little, since my husband is allergic to cream cheese.  So I am using vanilla frosting instead of the cream cheese.  I have also decided  to use both milk chocolate and white chocolate to coat them on the outside.  I also decided that I wanted to roll them in red, white, and blue sprinkles for our service members, especially our son Danny.  (I have written before that he was just honorably discharged from the marines.)  These would be a great, fun, and easy recipe for a simple dessert for the Fourth of July.  I am posting this early, because I wanted to make sure that you would be able to have time to get the ingredients together.

Oreo Cookie Cake Pops

1 package oreo cookies (ground in food processor)
1  1/4 containers store bought vanilla frosting
4 squares quick melt vanilla melted
4 squares quick melt chocolate melted
sprinkles
lollipop sticks

Grind Oreos in a food processor.  Once finely ground add frosting and turn on processor until well blended.  You should be able to form balls out of the oreo mixture.  If it still seems to dry, you can add more frosting until you can form balls that do not fall apart.












This should make about 30  1 inch in diameter balls.  Make all of your balls first.  I put them in this little cake pop pan, but you could also just put them on wax paper on a cookie sheet.  You want to make sure that your balls are on the smaller side, because. I am going to show a picture of what happens if you make them too big.  They will not stay on the stick and they fall apart.











Also, the one tip that I learned was to stick the stick in the chocolate or vanilla candy melt, so that the cake pop will stick to the stick.


This is what happens if they are too large.
Next you can start putting the balls in the melted vanilla coating.  Then set them on the wax paper on the cookie sheet.  Once you have half of the balls covered in the vanilla coating you can put the sprinkles on them, and let them harden.  Then you will do the same thing with the chocolate coating as you did with the vanilla.



Originally I put the sticks in after the coating has hardened on all of the balls, but I found that then the coating was flat on one side, so that is why you have the instructions above about coating the stick with the coating.  ( you can find these at Walmart, Joann's, and Hobby Lobby in cake decorating section).  I also found a cardboard stand at Walmart that was cute to serve them on.  These went fast at the office.  I took them all and came home with only 4, and then we had friends over to try the last few.

They came out so cute.  I just love them for the 4th of July.
 Please let me know what you think of this recipe.  I would love to hear your comments or questions.

Enjoy!!!
Debi

  1. Looks delicious! I've pinned it to make - I made my 1st Cake Pops for Father's Day, what a mess :-) but they tasted just fine. At least I know what I did wrong and will try your recipe with "more knowledge". Have a nice day, Debi!

    1. Hi Linda,

      I don't have a lot more knowledge. I have made them twice and I still get them breaking if I make them too big. They do taste really good though. Let me know if you figure out and easier way. Thanks for following today's blog.

  2. I haven't tried making cake pops yet, but this recipe seems simple enough to try. I have golden Oreos so I might use them instead of the traditional ones!

    1. The recipe is pretty easy. The trick is the size of the cake pops. Just keep them small.

    1. These are so easy and good. I just made them with my nieces yesterday, and they were really excited about how easy it was. They are 16 and 14 and going to make them for fund raiser bake sale stuff.
      Have a great day.

    1. Hi Holly,
      They are really good. My 8 year old nephew described it as heaven on a stick. It made me laugh.

  9. Hi Debi, which cake pop pan do you have? I have been looking online and have found lots of bad reviews on basically every one it seems... Do you like yours? Thanks :-) --Elizabeth

    1. Hi Elizabeth,
      Thanks for writing and visiting. I am away from home right now, but when I get home, I will check to see what kind it is. I don't know if it is good for baking though. I have just used it to hold the cake pops so far. My husband doesn't want me to make any more right now. He is trying to lose weight, and everytime I make them, he eats them all.
