What are Oreo Cookie Pops
Whether you call them popsicles, cake pops, or cookie pops, one thing is for sure – they are delicious! Oreo Cookie Pops are a variation of the classic cake pop, made from a mixture of cake and frosting. The difference with Oreo Cookie Pops is that you use an Oreo cookie as the base instead of a piece of cake. This results in a more intense chocolate flavor and a creamier texture.
Oreo Cookie: The star of the show is Oreos!
Cream Cheese: Use it to create the Oreo Cookie Pop dough and give it a nice, creamy texture.
Pink Candy Melts: These are melted and used to dip the Oreo Cookie Pops in. You’ll need ½ cup of pink candy melts.
White Candy Melts: These are melted and used to dip the Oreo Cookie Pops in. You’ll need ½ cup of white candy melts.
Decorating Supplies: You can use any type of decoration you want for your Oreo Cookie Pops! We recommend pink and white sprinkles, but you can also use chocolate chips, M&Ms, or any other type of candy.
How to Make Oreo Cookie Pops
Grab a blender and put 24 Oreo cookies in it. Blend until they are thoroughly crushed.
Transfer the crumbs to a bowl and add ½ cup of cream cheese. Use your hands or a spatula to mix them well together until you get a smooth paste that you can easily shape into balls with your hands.
Use an ice cream scoop to roll the mixture into balls of your preferred size. Place them on a plate and repeat the process until all the cookie dough has been used up.
Now it’s time to dip the pops! Melt ½ cup each of pink and white candy melts in the microwave. Dip the sticks of the Oreo Cookie Pops into the melted candy, then insert them halfway into the cookie balls. Put them in the fridge for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, get creative with your decorating! Melt ½ cup of each candy melt color in the microwave. Dip the Oreo Cookie Pops carefully into the melted candy until they are fully covered. Wait until they harden before continuing with the decoration.
If you’re using chocolate, melt it in the microwave and put it into the fridge to speed up the setting process. Once it’s hardened, use a spoon or small bag as a piping bag to drizzle chocolate over the Oreo Cookie Pops.
Enjoy your delicious and yummy Oreo Cookie Pops! They are sure to bring you lots of joy on Valentine’s Day.
Tips & Tricks
- Melt the candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and be careful not to overheat them. This will cause them to become lumpy and difficult to work with later.
- If you’re using chocolate chips instead of candy melts, make sure that they are the right size for dipping Oreo Cookie Pops in by cutting them down if necessary (i.e., smaller than half an inch). Otherwise it won’t work out as well when melting or decorating with melted chocolate! You can also use almond bark instead, which has a smoother consistency when melted and is easier for dipping mandarin oranges into than regular chocolate chips.
- If you don’t have any lollipop sticks on hand, try using pretzel rods or other similar items as an alternative way to dip Oreo Cookie Pops in melted candy melts! This works especially well if you’re looking for something longer than just one bite at once.
- If your melted candy doesn’t seem smooth enough when dipping Oreo Cookie Pops, try adding a little bit of vegetable oil to it before melting the chocolate chips to thin out consistency and make them easier for dipping. The small amount added shouldn’t affect the taste too much (if at all).
- Ensure that you don’t overheat the chocolate chips when melting them in a microwave. This will cause them to become lumpy and difficult to work with later! You can also use almond bark instead, which has a smoother consistency when melted and is easier for dipping mandarin oranges into than regular chocolate chips.
- Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet before placing Oreo cookie pops on it to not stick together. This will also make clean-up easier since you can scrape off any leftover candy coating and reuse them for other recipes.
- After dipping Oreo Cookie Pops in melted candy, you can place them on a wire rack to cool and harden. This will help avoid any pools of chocolate or frosting forming on the bottom of your pops.
- Be patient while waiting for Oreo Cookie Pops to dry and harden. If you try to move them around or eat them before they’re ready, they might end up falling apart!
- If you have any leftover melted candy or chocolate, don’t throw it away! You can store it in an airtight container and use it later on for other projects.
There are many different ways to decorate Oreo Cookie Pops for Valentine’s Day. You can use melted candy, frosting, chocolate chips, or other similar items to get creative! Here are a few ideas to help get you started:
– Use pink or red melting chocolate to coat the pops, and then add sprinkles, mini marshmallows, or other small candies on top for decoration.
– Frost the Oreo Cookie Pops with pink or red frosting and then add heart sprinkles, edible glitter, or other festive decorations.
– Dip the Oreo Cookie Pops in melted white chocolate and then add pink or red candy melts to create a marbled effect.
– Use chocolate chips to make “kisses” on top of your Oreo Cookie Pops – press them into the melted candy while it’s still wet.
– Add some edible glitter or other decorations overtop! These will add sparkle when you bite down and taste delicious too. You can also use sprinkles, mini marshmallows, or other small candies to add extra color and flavor.
How to store your Oreo Cookie Pops
Once your Oreo Cookie Pops are completely dry and hardened, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge. They should last for up to a week. If you’re not planning on eating them right away, you can also freeze Oreo Cookie Pops for later use.
What if my Cookie Pops keep falling apart?
If your cookie pops keep falling apart, it could be due to one of these two things: either the candy coating wasn’t appropriately melted, or you didn’t let it cool before dipping Oreo Cookie Pops in it.
To fix this problem, make sure that you use low heat and frequently stir when melting chocolate chips (or any other type of candy melts) on a stovetop or microwave.
Once you dip the Oreo Cookie Pops in the melted candy, allow them to cool down before moving them around. If they’re not cooled down properly, they might fall apart!
What can other types of candy melts can you use to make these Oreo Cookie Pops?
There are a lot of different kinds of melting chocolates available at the store, so feel free to experiment! I recommend using Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Wafers because they melt down quickly and taste delicious.
Other than that, you can also try using different flavors of candy melts if you want to switch things up a bit! Try melting some pink or red chocolate wafers for Valentine’s Day Oreo Cookie Pops with a festive look.
What if they come balls come out too sticky?
If your Oreo Cookie Pops come out too sticky, it’s probably because the candy coating wasn’t thick enough. To fix this, you can either add more crushed cookies.
Can I do the Cookie Pops without Cream Cheese?
Yes, you can do the Oreo Cookie Pops without cream cheese. Just use some chocolate frosting or Nutella instead of cream cheese.
If you’re using white chocolate, you’ll need to melt it first so that it’s easier to coat the cookie balls with. The texture will be much better this way too!
These wonderful Oreo Cookie Pops are the perfect surprise for a romantic Valentine’s day.
