What’s happening everyone??
Half of the week is over, so happy Wednesday to you all.
Remember my post about the Red Velvet Sheet Cake I made for my moms birthday?
Well that was not the only sweet treat she got from me.
My today’s post is about yummy, pink birthday cake pops I made for my mom. I chose mainly pink/rosa/red colors, so when they were I done I thought: These would go great with Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day as well :-)
If you want to see more pictures and the recipe..read on, guys.
- Prep Time 20 minutes
- Baking Time 10 minutes in refrigerator
- Difficulty Easy
For the Cake Pops:
- 1 package OREO cookies (I used the german package which is a little smaller, it contains 176g (16 cookies) of Oreo’s.)
- 1 8oz. package cream cheese
- Candy Melts (various colors) – I used Merckens Candy Melts for these cake pops
- Sprinkles, Sanding Sugar, Skittles, M&Ms for decorating
- Lollipop Sticks
- Lollipop plastic covers
- ribbon for tying
Additional Items you may want to get:
- Prepare yourself before you actually start. Get everything out on the counter you need, so you do not stress yourself in the middle of the decorating process :-)
- 1. Now, make the NO BAKE Cake Pops: Grind your Oreo cookies to fine crumbs in a food processor
- 2. Put the crumbmix into a boal and hand mix with cream cheese. I use gloves though, because it gets messy :-) Especially when you have longer nails, it takes a while to be “oreo/creamcheese-free” again. So just use gloves, or when you have kids, I am sure they would love to help you with this step :-)
- 3. Keep in mind that the dough should have the consistency of play-dough.
- 4. Roll the dough into 1″ balls or weigh them (20g), then refrigerate them for at least 10 minutes to firm up.
- 5. Now melt your candy wafers.
- 6. Dip a little bit of the lollipop stick in the melted candy, then stick the lollipop stick in the Cake Pop (half way) and dip the Cake Pop in the melted candy wafers.
- 7. Now you can add sprinkles, sanding sugar or anything else etc. to decorate. Don’t wait too long, otherwise it won’t stick to the base. Merckens Candy Melts dry pretty quickly, so that is why I should not wait too long.
- 8. When you’re done with deocrating, put it in a styrofoam block to let these cute cake pops dry completely.
- 9. Get it started. Have fun decorating and enjoy your Cake Pops and maybe give some away :-)
