I went on a girls trip this weekend, taking advantage of the Presidents’ Day holiday to get some good friend time in. Of course, this meant that I was going to be gone over Valentine’s Day – not a big deal to Mike or me (we celebrate on a different night), but a huge deal to Annabel. I prepared both kids little Valentine baskets from me, but I wanted to make Annabel (and Mike!) a little treat. Annabel loves cake pops, so I thought I’d make some for her and leave them as a surprise.

Now, most people make cake pops out of cake (duh), but I totally cheat and use Oreos. It is SO EASY and they honestly taste like cake. I tried them this time with the new Red Velvet Oreos and, according to Mike, they were amazing.

18 Oreos (any flavor)

Candy melts, any color
Lollipop sticks
Parchment or wax paper

Start by blending your Oreos into tiny crumbs. I love my Magic Bullet!

Put your crumbs and 4oz of cream cheese into a bowl, then mix together until the whole thing is a blended.

Get a spoonful of the cookie/cream cheese mix, then roll it into a ball. Place the ball on a piece of parchment/wax paper, then slide a lollipop stick into it. Once you’ve rolled all of your mix into balls, stick them in the freezer for about 20 minutes, until they are semi-hard.

Melt the candy melts, then remove the semi-frozen balls from the freezer. Dip each ball into the melted candy, making sure to coat the ball as much as possible. Place on parchment/wax paper.

Drizzle more melted candy onto the balls, if you’re feeling fancy. Leave them on the paper until they’re hard (or stick them in the freezer for 10-ish minutes to speed up the process).

Mike sent me a picture of Annabel trying one:
