Oreo & Nutella Cakepops

Making cake pops is such a fun.....crumbling, kneading, rolling,dipping and setting I just enjoyed every bit of the process....more so because I used all my favourite ingredients to make these adorable looking bite sized cakes dipped in silky smooth chocolate. If you have a sweet tooth you will enjoy these cakesicles as much as I did.

Ingredients:

  • 150 gms Oreo sandwich cookies (minus 2 cookies, because I ate those :p )
  • 130 gms pack Britania chocolate cake ( if you are making your own cake follow my eggless chocolate cake recipe
  • 100 gms Nutella (for more recipes from Nutella click on these links Nutella Fantasy No bake cookiesGary-the snail)
  • Few drops of vanilla extract
  • 50 gms melted white/dark chocolate (approx)
  • Candy Sticks
  • Sugar Sprinkles
Directions
  • Break the cookies into two pieces ( And trust me, It is not at all a crime if you accidentally lick the cream from one or two cookies)
  • Add the cookies into a food processor and pulse until there are no large chunks of cookies left.
  • Pour the crumbs into a big mixing bowl.
  • Next crumble your cake using your hands.
  • Now add crumbled cake, nutella and vanilla extract and mix it all together using your hands until fully incorporated.
  • Add a spoon of milk if required, basically you should be able to roll the dough into a ball easily.
  • Cover the dough with a plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm.
  • Divide the dough into 10 equal parts and roll into smooth crack free balls.
  • Cover a baking tray with a parchment paper/ baking sheet and place the cake balls on it.
  • Wrap
  •  the tray with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.( it should be enough so you can submerge the cake balls easily into the melted chocolate)
  • Dip one end of the candy stick into the melted chocolate and insert carefully into the cake balls.
  • Put the cake balls in refrigerator for 15- 20 minutes to set.
  • Dip cake balls carefully into the chocolate until covered.
  • Swirl and gently tap the balls so the excess chocolate drip off. 
  • Decorate the pops with sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet. It will harden quickly.
  • Put the pops back into refrigerator to set.
  • You can further decorate your cake pops with ribbons and some other fancy stuff or just enjoy them like this only. :)
