Cheat-Pops

Shared by Rebecca U at 9:30 AM
Have you ever made (or tried to make) cake pops? I went through quite a phase of making them and trying different shapes, styles and sizes. I got the hang of it but I find them really time consuming. As someone that insists on making cakes from scratch (no Betty Crocker for me thanks), it is a lengthy process to make the cake, wait for it to cook, then cool, then you crumble it, mix the frosting, make the shapes, wait to set and so on. 

I know its my own fault, I could just buy a ready made cake but I have come up with a quick way to make some cake pops. Thing is though, they aren't cake... they're cookies! Hence, 'Cheat-Pops'. They are really quick, need very few ingredients and are really yummy. They can be made in all different varieties too. I recently made some for a friends baby-shower and they went down a treat.

                              


You will need:

- Around 300g sandwich cookies / biscuits - I used Oreos but something like Bourbon or Custard Creams would work well too.
- Approx. 250g cream cheese - I used chocolate cream cheese as its easier to trick my husband in to eating 'cheese' or you could even use Nutella
- 200g chocolate, for melting - I used white but whatever is your preference 
- Sprinkles / Decorations (optional)

What to do:

- In a food processor mix the biscuits until they are fine crumbs. If you don't have a food processor or want the kinds to get involved then a zip-lock bag and a rolling pin works well too.

- Put the cookie crumbs in a bowl and mix in the cream cheese or nutella. I find it easier mixing with my hands.

- Make sure to have a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper (baking parchment) and then roll out balls with the cookie mixture, as big or small as you want them. This recipe can make up to 20 small ones or about 15 bigger ones.


- Put the tray with the cookie balls in the freezer for 15 minutes.

- When the time is up, melt the chocolate.

- Dip the end of the lolly sticks into the chocolate


- Then dip the cookie balls into the melted chocolate, using the stick. I find using a tall glass to melt the chocolate in really helps when you want to coat the balls.


- Let any excess chocolate drip off in the chocolate bowl.

- Sprinkle with decorations if you are doing so and then leave to set in a mug / glass / cake pop holder.

- Wait for them to dry and then you are good to go - easy as that!




Hope you enjoy making (and eating) 'Cheat-Pops'! They also make cute gifts if you wrap cellophane bags around the pop and tie with a ribbon...

I comment when I especially enjoy a post on
a site or I have something to add to the conversation.
Usually it is a result of the passion communicated
in the post I looked at. And after this article "Cheat-Pops".
I was moved enough to post a thought ;) I actually do have some questions for you if
it's allright. Is it just me or do some of the responses look like coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I would like to follow you. Could you list the complete urls of all your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
