Pin of the Day: Oreo Cake Pops How-To!

Are you ready? I have already posted once about an incredibly simple way to make Oreo cake pops here. This takes a couple more steps…but it’s totally worth it! Here’s what you need:

Pack of Oreos (classic or golden; can also use reduced fat)

8 oz. block of cream cheese (can use low-fat)

white chocolate or chocolate to melt

Lollipop Sticks

Sprinkles of your choice

* You can use golden Oreos for “vanilla” cake pops, and regular Oreos for “chocolate”. I have hard tales of using nutter butters for “peanut butter” flavor but I haven’t tried it yet. YET.

Step 1:

Place Oreos in food processor and blend until they are a powder. Break them apart as you place them in the food processor, or they won’t turn to powder as easily. My food processor could only hold one row of Oreos at a time, so I had to do 3 rounds.

Use Regular Oreos for “Chocolate” Cake Pops!

After blending in the food processor.

Step 2:

Add the entire block of cream cheese to the powdered cookies and mix together until completely blended.

Step 3:

Using an ice cream scoop or spoon, create 1″ balls of dough and place on cookie sheet.

Step 4:

Place cookie sheet in freezer for 15 minutes

Step 5:

As the cake pops are setting in the freezer, melt the chocolate (or white chocolate) that you have chosen. Mix in a bit (start with 2 TBSP) of vegetable oil or shortening to make it thin enough to easily dip the cake pops.

Step 6:

It is best to use a deep bowl that is not too wide so you make the most of the melted chocolate you have. Get the pops out of the freezer and get your sticks ready. You can either dip the stick in the chocolate first, then put the stick in the cake pop, then dip the whole thing in the melted chocolate, or you can just put the stick in the cake pop and dip the whole thing. If you dip the stick in first, you have to wait for it to harden before you dip the whole thing in the melted chocolate. I have done it both ways.

Step 7:

Once it’s covered in chocolate, put it on wax paper (on a cookie sheet) and drop whatever decorations you want on them right away. if you don’t they will harden and you will not be able to add any sprinkles. Then put them back in the freezer or fridge until you are ready to serve. I leave mine upside down so they have a flat bottom. Do not panic: they taste just as good.

  2. So cute! I made something like these recently with crushed Oreos and Nutella! I love the idea of using the golden Oreos as vanilla.
