Halloween Cupcake Cake Pops

It’s time for some Halloween Cake Pops…

Out of all of the things I dip in chocolate and smother in sprinkles, I think that my daughter and her friends get most excited about Cake Pops.    I’ve mentioned before that while I’ve made what I refer to as the Bakerella Cake Pops, I just don’t love the combo of cake and frosting – I don’t know why – I adore both, but together they are just “okay”.   And I always have a hard time destroying a freshly baked cake.  I feel a little like I’m committing crimes against cake.

Thankfully I’ve found a few alternative ways of making cake pops, both which I find to be delicious.   I love making cake pops with my Babycakes Cake Pop Maker and I love making cupcake pops using Oreos & cream cheese with my My Little Cupcake Cake Pop Mold.   How can you not love a sweet little cupcake made of DELICIOUS Oreo Truffles?   While I failed miserably at trying to make a regular cake pop into a cupcake, the My Little Cupcake Cake Pop Mold makes it SUPER easy.

So here is how you can whip up some delicious Halloween cake pops using the My Little Cupcake Cake Pop Mold.  There’s no baking involved, which I always love.   You need Oreos, cream cheese, melting chocolate, sprinkles and decorations (M&M’s work great), along with your lollipop sticks.   And of course you need your cake pop mold, but don’t worry, My Little Cupcake is giving two of my readers their own cake pop molds!

For my step by step tutorial on how to create cupcake cake pops using the the My Little Cupcake mold, check out this post, which is more detailed.   But here’s a quick how to..

Crush a package of Oreos into crumbs (the food processor works great for this).   I used the Halloween Oreos, which while darling, seemed a bit less cooperative than regular Oreos.  I think the orange filling has a bit of extra oil in it, so while cute, regular Oreos are a bit easier to work with in my opinion.

After crushing the Oreos, you add your softened cream cheese.   I usually use about 3/4 of a package of cream cheese, and I start with less and add more as needed.   While you can do this in the food processor, it works best to really combine the Oreo crumbs and cream cheese by hand.  After that I put the dough in the fridge to chill for a bit.   Once chilled it’s time to turn the dough into cute little cupcakes.

Take some dough and put it into the mold.   Squeeze the mold shut.

Then pop your cute little cupcake out of the mold.

After I have made my cupcakes, I put them in the fridge to cool again.   Once I’m ready to dip them, I dip the bottom of the cupcakes into chocolate (usually milk or dark), then add my stick, and let the chocolate set up.   Once the chocolate on the bottom of the cupcake is set, I dip the top of the cupcake into chocolate (usually white) and add my sprinkles and decorations.   This video from My Little Cupcake does a great job of showing you how…

Once you get the hang of it, these are easy to put together, and there are so many fun ways to decorate them…

You can add fun little sugar decorations, like the sugar skulls I’m in love with right now.

Top them with candy such as candy corn or Candy Corn Kisses.

Or add cute little picks that you can insert before the chocolate sets.  These were my daughter’s favorites of the bunch.

  1. sarah libero says

    I would love to win a My Little Cupcake Cake Pop Mold to make cupcake pops with my two toddlers :)

  2. Andrea says

    I never thought about making them with the Oreo truffles instead of cake. I’m just not good at baking a cake even if I’m going to destroy it. It kind of self destructs on its own in the oven. :)

  3. Leslie Y. says

    I would love to win! Your giveaways are so awesome! Thank you for giving all your fans a chance to win something super cool!

    I’m a follower of yours on facebook and your blog. I love your cupcake mold, and wishing for a larger version. Haven’t tried the Oreo recipe, however when I go make Bakerella’s cakepops, I only use 3tbl. cream cheese frosting. It’s all cake and not quite as sweet.
    Will have to try the Oreo one day also

  26. Belinda says

    love these cake pop ideas! I do these with my kids. Will have to try the different ideas for Halloween since we are making a Haunted house together.

  30. says

    You have given me so many inspirations with your cake pops. I did my first batch this past weekend (see my blog), but they weren’t as cute as yours. This mini cupcake pops look so adorable and I would love to own a mini cupcake mold. My nieces would love this so much too!

  31. C Vigil says

    I follow you on FB and told friends about your blog. I would love the cupcake mold. My boys are getting older and don’t remember the fun things I use to do. My goal is create more memories that they will remember forever.

  32. Kris says

    I shared the contest on Facebook!!!!

    I have made the Oreo truffles for years. They are so delicious! I had never thought of making them into a cupcake pop! GREAT IDEA!!!! I’m excited to have found your blog and look forward to making some of your creations. THANKS!!!

  33. Colleen Hoffman says

    I follow you on Facebook and LOVE your posts! I also agree with the cake/frosting dilemma. I don’t enjoy baking and then breaking it up – and I always think mine have too much frosting and are too heavy…

  34. Colleen Hoffman says

    Thanks for the giveaway! I love the no bake idea of these!!! (and so will my son!)

  35. Misty S says

    These are seriously TOO CUTE!! My three little munchkins would love eating these…. if I don’t win, I’ll have to try to buy the mold from their website asap :)

  36. Cindy says

    I’m here again 😀
    Hope to win this so I can make some with my little girl. She would love to do this!
    How fun would it be if I can make those with her for her 2nd Birthday. I’m thrilled about this idea :-)
    I hope I win 😀

  37. Abigail says

    I love this blog! It’s so cute, and these halloween cake pop ideas are inspirational. I need to get baking…

  38. says

    I’ve always wanted one of those! I think the Oreo truffle idea is better too – I’m not a huge fan of the traditional cake pops but Oreo truffles are awesome! :)

  39. melody says

    Wow – this is so great – I am so glad that I found this site – I enjoy baking and doing things like this.

  40. Kelly says

    I would love one of the cake pop mold! I agree with you bakerella’s cake pops are a bit too sweet for me with the frostings and all.. I prefer just cake! I remember making them for the first time on my birthday last halloween and it took me soo long to make the perfect round shape.. Hopefully i’ll be lucky to win this prize for halloween! Thanks for sharing!

  41. joey sewell says

    I have made the Bakerella cupcakes and they are delicious but I haven’t been able to get my cake/frosting ratio right…still working on it. I def want to use the mold to make some Oreo truffles into cupcakes…I def can’t get the hang of using the cutter to make the ball into a cupcake. :(
