Oreo Cakepops

After seeing a recipe for Oreo cakepops recently, I decided to give it a go. They were delicious and my family had great fun devouring them!

Ingredients & Tools:
  • Oreo cookies (any flavor)
  • Chocolate or Candy Melts
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Cream cheese
  • Wax paper
  • Styroform block
Choose your favourite Oreo's.

 For this recipe I chose the Milk Chocolate flavour. In South Africa, we only get one size box of Oreo's.  It is a small box and ended up making 9 cakepops so if you would like more, add more boxes of Oreo's.  Crumble up all the Oreo cookies in a mixer with 2 tablespoons of softened cream cheese.

It should be a nice play-dough consistency.

 Roll the mixture into balls and place them on a baking sheet with wax paper on top. Put them in the fridge for 15 minutes to harden.

 Grab a lollipop stick, dip it in the melted chocolate and stick it into the ball about halfway and then stick the cake pop into a polystyrene block or, here I used an egg carton, which is perfect for putting back into the fridge for the sticks to set.

Now your cakepops are ready for dipping. I dip them once and then let them dry, stuck into the polystyrene block and then I dip them again to get a really nice finish.

Before the second coat is fully dry, you can sprinkle whatever sprinkles you want.  Here I used Brown Non-Pareils, Chocolate Vermicelli and Sugar crystals grounded with Chocolate Chips.

and all done!
