Easter Cake Pops

These simple Easter cake pops are a breeze to prepare. Whiz up some Oreos and cream cheese in the food processor, roll into balls, then dip those balls in chocolate.  Plus, I’m offering a few tips to help the procedure run smoothly.

I’m no expert, as the dipping part is always a bit of a challenge.  Type A aspirations with Type B results. But the the family loved these chocolate bonbons on sticks, even the rejects!

Tips for Making Cake Pops:

  • I used the same filling as in my Oreo Truffles, simple a package of regular Oreos and an 8-ounce block of cream cheese. I noticed the ounces in a package of Oreos has decreased (surprise, surprise!) so I added a couple extra to make up for the weight discrepancy.
  • If your filling mixture is too soft, just refrigerate it for a while before rolling it into balls. And you can refrigerate the rolled Oreo balls while you melt the dipping chocolate and organize your sprinkles. I don’t recommend freezing your Oreo balls, then immediately dipping as the coating will harden up quickly and your sprinkles won’t adhere.
  • I was taught to dip the “pop” stick in a little of the melted chocolate before inserting it into the Oreo ball. I did a few without this time and I’m not sure there was much of a difference.
  • I used Ghirardelli white chocolate melts instead of just melted white chocolate. It melts easily and will not bloom like chocolate when cooled (though it’s not as noticeable with white chocolate).
  • Dust with colored sugars or festive sprinkles to match the holiday or celebration. I found these Easter sprinkles at Target, but they’re also available on Amazon.
