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
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!
