Easter Egg Cake Pops

211. Happy Easter!!
We were inspired by Bakerella and her incredible "Cake Pops"! Have you seen what she does??
One of her recipes were to make cookie pops so we tried them for a bake sale this Easter.
They turned out great!
We made Nutter Butter Cookie/Cake Pops.
This recipe is so simple. Just a package of Nutter Butter Cookies. Place in a food processor and chop them till crumbly.
Add 8oz softened cream cheese and blend together with a spoon till it forms a dough.
Roll the dough into round balls or shaped eggs. Dip lollipop sticks into melted chocolate then push through the bottom of each shape. Use styrofoam to stand the pops up. Refrigerate.
Melt dipping chocolate and dip the chilled pops in chocolate and then add sprinkles or leave them plain.
We also made a batch with Oreo cookies. OMG!!! They were my favorite!!!
We dipped them in Ghirardelli white chocolate, little bit of sprinkles and then stood them up in a basket.
We sold them at a bake sale on Easter and they were a big hit!

That's it! It is important to purchase melting chocolate that will be light and runny when melted. Some of our chocolate was thick and it was difficult to dip...but for the first time making them...I think we did pretty great! I found this site at CakeCentral.com where they address this issue and suggest using shortening. I will definitely try that next time!
