No Bake Oreo Cake Pops

No bake oreo cake pops, all you need are oreo cookies, cream cheese, some chocolate and lots sprinkles. These oreo cake pops are fun to make with kids.


I’ve been wanting to make cake pops for a while now. They look so adorable that I just couldn’t help myself. However, I wanted to find a no bake version of these cake pops because I don’t really feel like having the oven on now with this heat.

So I came across these no bake Oreo cake pops and thought what a great idea. I mean I love Oreo cookies, who doesn’t, and they seemed easy enough to do. And they were, and did I have fun making them. I felt like a little kid again with all the sprinkles. What a fun project to do with kids.

Now I didn’t make too many, I used half a package of Oreo cookies, so 24 of them, and 1/3 package of cream cheese. You’ll need a food processor to crumble up the cookies. You’ll need to get your hands in there and get dirty. It’ll be like playing with mud. It’s fun, trust me. Mix in the cream cheese with the cookie crumbs thoroughly and shape it into a ball. Then just form the dough into 1 inch little balls. They already look cute and adorable and you might not be able to resist popping one in your mouth, but that’s ok.


So out of the 1/2 package of Oreo cookies I got 16 cake pops, which is more than enough, unless you have a few kids around, in which case use the entire package. :) Now you’ll have to place the cake pops in the refrigerator for at least 10 to 15 minutes to allow the cake to set. Just before taking them out, melt your chocolate according to the package instructions. I had some yellow chocolate and some regular chocolate, so I used both. I melted my chocolate in the microwave and it took about 1 minute for each. Take out the cake balls and stick the lollipop stick in them, then dip them in the chocolate. I found it easier to use a teaspoon as well to make sure the cake pop is fully coated. After coating the cake ball with chocolate, I sprinkled them with colored sprinkles and place the cake pop in a glass, like you’re placing flowers in a vase. I found this really easy. After you finished all the cake pops, you might need a couple glasses by the way, place them in the refrigerator for a few minutes, until the chocolate sets. After that, they’re all yours, or you can find some kids to give them to. :)

    I hope this question gets to you sooner rather than later. I purchased Chocolate cookie Crumble, would that be an okay substitute for Oreo crumble?
    I wanted Oreo, but the party didn’t.


    • says

      Des, I wish I could help you but I’ve never tried this with chocolate cookie crumble, I’ve never even seen it so that I know what it’s like. Sorry :(

  2. Abby says

    Hi! So this is going to sound strange, but do these taste at all like cream cheese? I am not a cream cheese fan, so I was wondering if there was a substitute for it? Thank you! :) by the way these look fantastic!

    Hello!! I’m looking forward to making these for a baby shower I’m throwing. Quick question, how do you prevent the chocolate from running down the stick or creating an odd tip shape if you held it upside down while drying?

    • says

      Oh the chocolate is not that liquidy so that it runs down the stick, so I didn’t have that problem, and also once you cover them in sprinkles that should also stop the chocolate from running. :)

      • Lepurushe says

        I didn’t use food processor, or a blender. I put all the cookies in a zip lock bag, and that bag in yet another bag (so it doesn’t break when cookies are smashed). Place kitchen tower around the bags and smack away with meat tenderizer hammer thingies until it becomes sand like in texture. I mixed in the cream cheese with my hands, too. These are delicious!!

    Are they good with out dipping them in chocolate and sturdy enough without the chocolate to be a snack. My son does not like chocolate but loves the oreo part?

    • says

      Mine were pretty sturdy and you could put them in the fridge for a bit, but the cream cheese should hold them together.

  5. Kathy says

    My sister in law made these for Easter ,They were great,want to make some for my sons wedding and would like to try using vanilla cookies and possibly nutter butter ( peanut butter )cookies. Any suggestions? Did you ever try any other cookie besides oreos ?

  6. Bev says

    Just making these …. wonderful idea, they are currently in the refridgerator with the sticks in – will post a pic if I do it right ;) x

    Hi Jo,
    I am from the UK and found your website whilst looking for a recipe for these oreo cake pops. It sounds really easy and simple to do. Thank you for the recipe and I look forward to trying it out. A good idea for a stocking filler present is to put a few of these in a clear cellophane bag and tie with ribbon. Everyone will love these I’m sure x

    You make it look so easy. Everything was fine until it came time to dip the balls in chocolate. What a nightmare. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to dip chocolate. The chocolate was too thick to make an even coat, or the ball would just come off the stick and fall into the chocolate (even after I had chilled the balls in the freezer). I think I need a better recipe for the dipping chocolate. The chocolate chips/baking chocolate bars don’t seem to work.

    • says

      Sorry to hear you were having issues with the chocolate. I used chocolate chips myself and had no issues. If you find the chocolate is too thick you could add a bit of heavy cream to the chocolate to thin it out a bit. It might make it easier to dip the balls in the chocolate.

    How long do these last and I would keep them in the fridge. I want to make them before xmas but not sure how long they keep for?


    • says

      Hi Rita,
      Oh that’s a tough question, I wouldn’t make them more than 1 or 2 days in advance because I think they’ll get hard. But if that’s not a problem for you then make them whenever you want I would just make sure you refrigerate them.

  10. Cindy Court says

    I made these last year they are to die for, just put the stick in before refrigerating or you will split the ball. I used the oreos with the cream in the centre and had no issue regarding consistency, if they are to dry just add a bit more cream cheese. I ended up using 300 g oreo and 100g crm cheese that works for me, but they are Australian measurements.

  11. Anna says

    I tried this out and it was absolutely delish, but I had a lot of trouble with coating the balls with chocolate. They kept falling apart. How did you do it??

    • says

      The cream cheese should help bind the oreo cookie crumbs so as you mix with your hands it should all hold together. So I first made the balls and then I placed them in the fridge so they would set. Make sure you don’t miss that step. So when I took them out of the fridge they were pretty hard, so as you stick the lollipop in them make sure you hold them with one hand. That’s all, then just roll them in some melted chocolate. :)

      • Ambica says

        I had the same problem of them falling apart. However I was looking at another video for cake pops and the idea was to dip the tip of Lollipop stick in candy melt and then stick them into the cake balls. I think the candy melt helps them stick together. I am planning to make them again for friend in hello kitty shapes Avatar soon.

    Hey Jo! First of all, love your blog. Second. Would you think it’s better to just buy crumbled Oreo already in the packet ? ( they sell them here in Malaysia ) and how much do you think I’d need? (: thanks.

    • says

      Hi Zee,
      Thanks so much. :) Well I never knew that you can buy crumbled Oreo. Gosh how much would you need, do they sell it bulk or in packages. I’d say about a pound should be more than enough and if there’s any extra left over, well just add it to your milk. :) I’d love to know how they turn out.

      • Zee says

        Sure Jo! I’ll send you a picture of it when I get my hands on it! (: but I think it’ll be different without the oreo cream in the middle!

        • says

          Thanks, I’ll be looking forward to it. When you said you can buy crumbled Oreo I didn’t realize it’s without the oreo cream in the middle.

    I made these over the weekend and they tasted absolutely great but the chocolate split on most of them and it was almost as though they expanded and “exploded”

    Any tips on what i might have done wrong or why they would do that?


    • says

      Hi Colene,
      Wow that’s strange, did you add sprinkles to them as soon as you dipped them in chocolate and then refrigerate them? What kind of chocolate did you use?

      • Colene Baker says

        Yipp i dipped them in sprinkles straight afterwards and put them in the fridge, when I took them out, one or two had cracked but after a while of being out at room temperature almost every other one cracked or popped a piece of chocolate up. Maybe it was the heat that caused it.

        Nevertheless I shall try again.

    Hi! I found your blog, while searching for cake pops recipe. This was amazing.!! Everybody loved the oreo one! Thanks so much!

  15. Debbie says

    I wanted to make these for my daughter’s baby shower (at a restaurant) and was wondering if they had to stay refrigerated.(being that it has cream cheese in it)

  16. Robyn says

    Wow, these are fantastic! I have always loved cake pops and I always make them. Your recipe which uses cream cheese is a healthier option rather than chocolate spread! Even though your in america though I can stlill make them in the UK!!!!

    • says

      Well a package of cream cheese is 250 g here in Canada, so that would be about 83.3333 grams, or I’d say about 3 and a bit ounces. The size of the cream cheese package is probably the same in the US.
