How to Make No Bake Oreo Cake Pops
Step 1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Step 2. Use your food processor to crush the Oreo cookies into fine crumbs.
Tip: If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a rolling pin to crush the Oreos in Ziplock bag. Just leave a small corner unsealed so that the bag doesn’t pop open.
Step 3. After softening to room temperature, add the cream cheese to the Oreo crumbs and process until well combined. You can do this step with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer if you’re not using a food processor.
Step 4. Use a small cookie scoop or a tablespoon to measure the cream cheese mixture into bite-sized portions. Roll dough into small Oreo cookie balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Step 5. Chill the Oreo balls in the refrigerator for at least an hour or up to several hours.
Step 6. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave-safe bowl the microwave until smooth and melted.
Step 7. Insert cake pop sticks or lollipop sticks into each of the chilled cookie balls.
If you have extra time, you can dip the end of the stick in the melted chocolate, push the stick into the Oreo cookie pop and freeze for 15 minutes. It’ll help keep the ball from falling off the stick.
Step 8. Dip the cake pops into the melted chocolate, swirling to coat them evenly. Tap off any excess chocolate and return each one to the cookie sheet.
Step 9. While the chocolate is still soft, garnish the Oreo cake balls with sprinkles.
No sprinkles? No worries! Just set aside some crushed Oreos and use those instead. Even better, you’ve now got an even simpler 3 ingredient recipe!
Step 10. Refrigerate the cake pops for 10-15 minutes, or until the chocolate hardens into a shell. Serve chilled and enjoy!
Store cookie pops in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Oreo Pop Variations and Add-ins
- Sprinkles: One of the easiest ways to change up the way these colorful cake pops look is to use sprinkles in a different color. You can use red or pink for Valentine’s Day, red and green for Christmas, or you can use your team’s colors for game day.
- Chocolate coating: We used white chocolate bark, but you can use white chocolate chips or candy melts. You can also change up the flavors by using dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips.
- Colorful chocolate: If you want to make Oreo cake pops that are even more colorful, just add a little gel food coloring in the chocolate. I like to swirl it just enough to be mixed but leave streaks. This gives the cake pops a pretty marbled look.
- Oreo cookie crumbs: We used regular Oreos to make these chocolate cake pops but for a fun twist you can use Golden Oreos, Mint Oreos, or any of your favorite flavors.
- Peanut butter chocolate pops: Mix some creamy peanut butter into the Oreo mixture for an irresistible peanut butter and chocolate combination. If the mixture seems a little loose, just add a few more crushed Oreos.
- Nutty Oreo pops: Stir in chopped nuts like almonds, pecans, or hazelnuts to add a subtle nutty texture.
The dough should feel slightly sticky but if it is too sticky or won’t hold its shape just add more crushed Oreos, a little at a time. Also, to help them firm up, make sure you allow enough time for the Oreo balls to chill in the refrigerator.
Chocolate bark or candy melts will give you the best results and typically won’t crack when set up. If you’re using chocolate chips that aren’t the best quality, try adding a small amount of vegetable oil or shortening to the melted chocolate to help give it a smoother consistency.
