Oreo Cake Pops

Oreo Cake Pops
I’ve been on a cake pop kick lately. My sister sent me some Oreo cake icing and I knew I couldn’t make cupcakes after my recent tirade. Cake pops are a great way to use up the bits and pieces of cake paraphernalia I’ve accumulated.

I used a yellow cake mix, mixed with the Oreo icing, dipped in white and milk chocolate (that Dr. Oetker sent me) and sprinkled with finely crushed Oreo cookies.

I made the cake balls froze them overnight and then dipped them when I got home from work. These are tasty and quick for weeknight baking.

Ingredients
1 box cake mix
1-2 packages Oreo icing (if you don’t live in the US or have little sisters that send you stuff you can make your own Oreo icing by folding some crushed cookies into vanilla icing)
milk and/or white chocolate for dipping
1 roll Oreo cookies
Lolly sticks
Oreo Cake Pops
This made one 8 inch cake round (a typical cake mix makes 2). I got this at the $1 store!
1. Make the cookie crumbs by throwing in a good handful of Oreo’s in a food processor and grind until fine.

2. Make the cake according to the package (or make one from scratch). Set aside (or in the fridge) to cool.

3. Once the cake is cool crumble it finely with a fork. Squeeze half of the frosting into the cake and stir until it starts to combine. Add more frosting as needed (I used the whole tube). If you used a regular cake mix you might need 2 pouches.

4. Using an ice cream scoop make a round shape using 2 scoops of cake for each one. Line on a baking sheet and freeze for 20 minutes. After the 20 minutes stick the lolly stick in each and freeze over night (use a dab of melted chocolate on the end when you stick them in).

5. Once the pops are firm, melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl on 30 second intervals. Dip each pop in and shake off the excess. Sprinkle with the cookie crumbs straight away as it will set quickly! Store in an airtight container.

    What kind of icing do you dip the cake balls into at the end?

    Reply
  48. Cupcake Kelly

    @eating – the cake balls are dipped in melted chocolate. You can buy baking chocoalte at the grocery store or candy melts at hobby stores (like Michael's). Put them in the microwave for 30 seconds, take out and stir, put back in for 30 seconds until they are melted. Once the cake balls and sticks are firm dip them in and place them upright to dry.

    Those look amazing !!!!!! It's such a creative idea and I think would be great at parties I know I did a mini cupcake theme for one of my parties awhile ago when the cupcake craze just began, my fav for the pina cola cupcake. I can't eat that kind of stuff anymore or at least right now, but I would LOVE to make it one day for a party and again congrats on the blog to note section… That's how I found your blog btw
