Happy Christmas Eve! Does anyone have any shopping left to do?
We have one last awesome tutorial to rounding out our Cake Pop Con attendee series. Janae from Nae B. Sweets came up with a no-bake, 2-ingredient cake pop idea for those people on Santa’s naughty list.
No Bake Oreo Lumps of Coal Cake Pops
If you don’t like to bake, this is the cake pop for you! A no-bake cake pop made of Oreos. No matter the customer, these Oreo cake pops are always a favorite.
When I was thinking of the perfect gift to make for my son’s friends at day care, a naughty and nice bag came to mind. Each child had two cake pops in their bag; one naughty cake pop and one nice cake pop. For the naughty cake pops it only made sense to make lumps of coal and I couldn’t resist making two of my favorite flavors, Oreo and vanilla. For the lumps of coal cake pops I made the cake pops out of Oreos and cream cheese! They were so yummy and oh so naughty!
- 1 Family Package Oreo Cookies
- 6oz Cream Cheese
- Bakerella’s Gem Mold
- Parchment Paper
- Bakerella’s Chocolate Fudge Candy Wafers
- Black Sanding Sugar
- Cake pop sticks
- Cake pop stand (or Styrofoam)
Grind Cookies in a food processor or blender until there are no big pieces.
In a medium bowl, add cream cheese and use hands to combine cookies and cream cheese until a dough is formed.
Fill gem molds with cake pop dough making sure to tightly pack the molds to ensure a smooth pop. Insert into the Fridge for about 20 minutes, until cake pops are hardened.
Place formed cake pops on parchment paper, or a non-stick mat like Silpats.
Melt candy wafers according to the directions on the bag. Add desired amount of Crisco to thin out the melted wafers.
Once Candy wafers are melted, dip cake pop stick ½ inch into melted candy and insert into the bottom of a formed cake ball about 1/3 of the way through. Immediately dip entire cake pop into the melted candy just until the candy touches the stick.
Pull the cake pop out of the candy and gently tap the cake pop stick against the edge of the bowl making sure to spin the pop to have an even coating.
Once excess candy is removed, sprinkle black sanding sugar over the entire cake pop.
I find that using a bowl to catch the sprinkles that don’t make it on to the pop is easier.
Use a cake pop stand to dry the cake pops. For your display, you can use a cake pop stand, or a bowl of sugar that looks like the pops are in snow.
You can use a variety of items to jazz up your Coal Pops – bows, ribbon, Washi tape & more!
