Bakerella's cake pop recipe always involves a type of cake (she likes using cake mix) and frosting: vanilla, cream cheese, chocolate, well, you name it yourself. But because I am normally quite lazy to bake cakes myself at home, since my husband and I are not much of a cake eater, I like using Oreo cookies to make cake pops. You only need to grind the cookies in a food processor then add cream cheese, form it into little balls and then dip them into melted chocolate. And ta-dah...cake pops are ready :). This time, because I forgot to buy cream cheese, I used milk to make the cake pop dough and it worked very well...!
Ingredients - makes 12
- 352 grams OREO cookies
- White chocolate, melted (add red food colouring to make pretty pink colour)
- Dark chocolate, melted
- Ice cream cone
- Coloured sprinkles
- Red smarties
- Place Oreo cookies in a food processor and grind to fine crumbs.
- Add milk a little at a time to the Oreo cookie crumbs. The consistency is right when the dough is pliable and not too dry nor too sticky. When it's too dry, add more milk, when it's too sticky, you have to add more Oreo cookie crumbs.
- Shape the dough into little balls.
- One at a time, cover an Oreo ball with pink melted chocolate.
- Insert a toothpick into the ball to lift it out.
- Transfer the coated Oreo ball to the prepared ice cream cone.
- Decorate with coloured sprinkles, melted dark chocolate and red smarties.
These mini ice-cream cone cake pops are great for tea time too :D)!!
