Cake pops!

I am no baker, nor am i a photographer. This blog post proves just that!

This is my second attempt at cake pops (first lot went in the bin.)

They look totally ridiculous..... I was drinking pink champagne the whole time.

But they were HARD. I'm not going to lie.

They were damn EASY to eat though! Not sure if i will attempt these again.

These particular cake pops are not actually cake. They are cookies and cream. Oreo cookies crushed with cream cheese to be exact. I decided to try them again after a friend of mine made super amazing ones that we had for Jasmine's birthday. I failed. But they were YUMMY!!

Traditional cake pops are cake crumbs mixed with frosting. You can also make any type of truffle and stick them on a lolly pop i guess.

Here goes.... GOOD LUCK!

  • 300g Oreos. (I used 3x single packets)
  • 150g Cream cheese at room temperature. (I added bits slowly, you don't need it all and the mixture cant be too wet.)
  • 1x pack chocolate melts. Milk or white. White looks good too!
  • Lolly pop sticks. (I got mine of Ebay)
  1. Crush oreos in a food processor. (Bahahahaaha oh i wish i had one!!)
  2. Add cream cheese chunks at a time and process until the mixture comes together. (I smooshed it all around with a spoon.)
  3. Roll into small balls - Approx 1 tbsp worth.
  4. Melt a little of the chocolate and dip the end of the stick in to coat, then stick into the balls.
  5. Put them in the fridge or freezer to firm.

6. Melt the remainder of the chocolate, make sure it is completely smooth. Holding the stick, dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Double coat them if you have to.  Tap the ball on the edge of the bowl to let the excess chocolate drip off and place into something to dry (I used an upside down colander)

7. Dip the pops in sprinkles or after they are dry decorate them with cachous, butterflied etc using the chocolate as glue.

8. Place back in the fridge to set and then EAT THEM!!!

Google image them for decorating ideas.

Do not consume champagne while attempting this recipe.
