Yum, Yum! Have you seen the latest in fun baked goods craze? Last year we saw the rise of the cupcake….this year its the scrumptious cake pop or cake ball.

We had a Bake Sale a few months bake to support a wonderful program called Pennies for Patients whose proceeds go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The kids had a blast with this fundraiser and also supported a wonderful cause.

My girlfriends had shared with me the recipe for cake pops — but feeling a little less ambitious, instead I made funfetti cake balls covered in white chocolate (pictured above.)

You can find more recipes for cake pops here at bakerella.com. Check out the adorable reindeer cake pops!

Now, you know me. I’m always thinking of ways to have fun activities for the children — so I tried to think of a way we could make cake pops in the after-school setting with only a fridge and microwave at our disposal. I found a fun recipe at firefly.com for oreo cookie cake balls. We added craft sticks and voila! Oreo cookie cake pops!

Here’s how we made them:

Ingredients:

  • Cream Cheese
  • Oreos
  • Chocolate chips
  • Plastic/paper bowls
  • Craft sticks (optional)

1) Give each child a plastic sandwich bag with two oreos inside. Have them crush the oreos.

2) Give each child one spoonful of slightly melted cream cheese in a bowl and have them mix together with oreo crumbs and form it into a ball. Stick a craft stick in it if you would like it to be a cake pop.

3) Freeze oreo balls in bowl for 10 minutes. During this step have Staff melt chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl.

4) Have Staff dip oreo balls or pops into melted chocolate.

Hooray, you’ve just made No-Bake oreo cake balls!
