For over a year, I wanted to make Bakerella’s cupcake cake pops. I’d look at them online, read about them, think about them, but frankly – I was intimidated by them. Finally a few weeks ago I gave them a try. One word. FAIL. I’m not sure what I did wrong, but they were just blobs. They tasted great, but were not very cute. A few days later I came across My Little Cupcake’s Cake Pop Mold. I figured for $5.95, plus shipping, I could take a risk and try it out.
Guess what??? It worked! Wonderfully! They have a GREAT tutorial video on the front page of their website. I watched it and figured if her kids can do it, I could do it (or at least I should try to). I used the No Bake recipe on her site (which happens to be my favorite Oreo truffle recipe – I’ve been known to attend Pampered Chef parties simply because I know they often serve the Oreo truffles). I like cake pops, but I LOVE the Oreo truffles. Let’s walk through how to do this…
Ingredients are quite simple, Oreos, cream cheese, melting chocolate, M&Ms and sprinkles. You’ll also need sticks and having an empty egg carton ready will come in handy. To make a full batch, you will use the entire bag of Oreos and entire block of cream cheese. Now, having said that, I almost always cut back on the cream cheese. For this batch I used half the bag of Oreos and 1/3 the block of cream cheese.
Take the Oreos for a spin in the food processor.
Poor the crumbs into a bowl. Add your cream cheese.
Ready to get your hands dirty? Mix that cream cheese in by hand. It’s gooey and messy and you have to work it for a bit, but eventually you will get this…
Resist eating the giant ball of Oreo truffle dough. It’s hard, I know.
Roll the dough by hand into 1″ balls. I tended to make mine too small, they needed to be a decent size. Almost the size of a golf ball. The first few I made weren’t big enough, and I had to redo them. After making the Oreo balls, put them in the fridge for at least ten minutes.
Now you will want to take your ball of dough and put it into the cupcake pop mold. I found it best to not try and squish it in, but let the mold do the work when you close it.
Wipe off any excess. And with a little luck, you will have a super cute little cupcake!
Aww, aren’t they cute? Now stick them in the fridge for at least ten more minutes. Before pulling them out of the fridge, go ahead and melt your chocolate according to the package directions.
Dip the bottom part of the cake pop into the chocolate.
After dipping the bottom in chocolate, insert your stick. This is where your egg carton will come in handy, as it makes a wonderful cupcake pop holding area.
After the chocolate has set, melt your second chocolate color so you can dip the tops into it.
Let the excess drip off, turn over and top with an M&M and then sprinkles of your choice.
And then let set. I used a block of styrofoam from Walmart to put mine in.
How freaking cute are those????? Thumbs up to My Little Cupcake for their amazing product!
I put mine into a yellow bucket from the Target dollar section. You can use styrofoam in it, but I actually used dried beans to hold mine in place. Easter grass hides so much!
Love them! Hopefully the sweet birthday girl who I made them for will enjoy them.
love the recipe and i cant wait to make these but i was wondering how many oreos did you use because the packages are different in ireland thank you soooooo much!!!!!!!!
can the no bake cake pops be frozen? would it be before or after they were dipped
Claudia, I freeze mine before dipping all the time. I’ve never frozen any kind of cake pop once dipped, I think the changes in temp of the chocolate puts it too much at risk for cracking.

I want make these next week for my daughter’s first birthday… I want to make them in advance because I’m making other treats as well… What would be the best way to store these so that they are fresh for the party???
Rasheeda, probably in the fridge. I’m not a huge fan of making them too far in advance. Cookies, cake, things like that I feel great about freezing, cake pops are something I usually try to do as close to the event as possible. Have fun and Happy Birthday to the little one!
How long do they keep for using this oreo recipe with cream cheese?
How long does they keep for using this oreo method with cream cheese?
I only go a few days with cream cheese, and keep in the fridge, but I will say I’m also on the paranoid side of dairy and things going bad. 🙂
Hi, I think the ingredient I browse thru for ores truffles cakepop was as below
Oreo 48 pcs ( ard 4 packets of Oreo )
One pkt cream cheese
Hi gal, I am from sg may I know how much was ur shipping?
Hi! Been so addicted to these cuties so i actually tried to make some myself.. And viola-epic fail. I am not sure, but my theory is that i put in more cream cheese than the oreo cookies so what happened is that when i dipped it in chocoate, it fell off the pop stick. 🙁 is my theory correct?should there be more oreos and just a little cream cheese? Thanks!
Hi. Sorry for the annoying question, but I’m new to cake pops so what quantities of oreos to cream cheese do I use? The My Little cupcake website no longer has the recipe page available.
