I know I didn’t give my daughter her first M&M, nor did I give her that first Oreo cookie. Yet, somehow, these are her two favorite snacks. Better said, these are her favorite foods. If she could have it her way, they would be her breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With ice cream on the side.

Couple of days ago she really surprised me when she took me by the hand and walked me over to our pantry. She then opened the pantry door, pointed up towards the shelves, and said, “cookie!”.

I didn’t even know that she knew that word.

I picked her up and she reached for the Oreos! Smart girl.

In just a few weeks Ana will be celebrating her 2nd birthday, and I want to make a bunch of her favorites to share with her guests.

I of course can’t just put a bowl of Oreos and another bowl of M&M’s on the table. So I’m making some Oreo cheesecake pops and I still haven’t decided on the M&M thing…maybe a big large “mall” type cookie? I’ll come up with something.

I can’t wait to see a bunch of sugar-high children screaming, and running around in my house. Yaaay for me! Don’t be jealous.

Oreo Cheesecake Pops
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 20 Cheesecake Pops
  • 1 package (11.25 oz.) Oreo cookies, divided
  • 1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • white chocolate wafers, melted (I buy mine at craft stores)
  • lollipop sticks
  • styrofoam block (you can get that at a craft store, too)
  1. Put 5 Oreo cookies in a food processor, or food chopper, and grind the cookies to a fine crumb. Set aside.
  2. Take the rest of the cookies and break them into pieces, then put them in your food processor’s bowl.
  3. Add in the cream cheese
  4. Process until well blended.
  5. Put the mixture in the fridge for one hour.
  6. Mold the dough into 1-inch balls and put them back in the fridge for another 20 minutes.
  7. Melt the wafers.
  8. Dip the lollipop stick in the melted candy then stick the lollipop stick in the cheesecake pop, half way, and dip the cheesecake pop in the melted candy wafers.
  9. Sprinkle the cheesecake pop with some cookie crumbs.
  10. Stick the cheesecake pop into the styrofoam block.
  11. Do this with the rest of the cookie dough and put the pops in the freezer for 2 hours. They will taste like ice cream!
  12. Serve.

    Katerina! I am late to the party on this post, but those are the most mouth-watering cake pops I have ever seen. Playing on my love of stracciatella ice cream!

    Anyway, I have had to reblog this recipe on my website … I hope it brings these cake pops back to life after a couple of years. :)

    These look super good. Oreos are one of my favorite treats. I try to stay away because I literally cannot stop myself once I get going.

  16. Crystle July 14, 2011 at 10:42 PM - Reply

    These look AMAZING!! Can’t wait to try them. I do have a question though, since it has cream cheese in it, will they need to be refrigerated ?? And how long would they be able to be left out at a party before starting to spoil??

    • Kate@Diethood July 16, 2011 at 10:07 AM - Reply

      Hi Crystle!! I’m sorry I didn’t see your question sooner! Please forgive me.
      I should have mentioned that I left a couple of the cake pops on my coffee table over night – they were just as perfect the next day. So I think it’s safe to say that you can leave them out for at least 12 hours.

    These Oreo cheesecake pops are absolutely fabulous! My little guy just turned 2 a couple of months ago. He has the same affinity for oreos. These would have been a big hit at his birthday party. Guess I will have to find another “excuse” to whip up a batch. Happy birthday to Ana!

  36. Susan Smith July 14, 2011 at 9:09 AM - Reply

    Your daughter has the right idea! I love M& M cookies, they might be my favorite…but if you want to do something really fun, consider M&M cupcakes. make your favorite vanilla cupcake as you normally would. After you scoop the batter into the pan(s), sprinkle the top with an assortment of M&Ms. As the cupcakes bake, the M&Ms sink, leaving colorful trails through the batter. Frost with a fluffy vanilla buttercream and sprinkle more M&Ms on top.

    What a smart girl :) I like her favorites! These cake pops look like an awesome way to celebrate! I made cake pops for July 4th last year and mixed mini red and blue m&m’s in with the crumbled cake and frosting. They lost a little of their crunchy shell quality, but were still a big hit!

    You’re joking. These are out of this world, Kate! By the way, your daughter is one smart cookie, no pun intended :-) Happy early birthday to Ana! I don’t know about you, but for some reason, I think M&M’s in a Rice Krispies Treat would be nice. Or, use those in place of chocolate chips for a cookie. Ooh, have you ever crumbled up pretzels and mixed them with the marshmallow/butter mix for Rice Krispies Treats? Yeah, me, either. But, the salty of the pretzel with the sweet of the marshmallow and the chocolate of the M&M’s sounds like it’d be great!

    So cute! I just made some regular cake pops for my friends wedding. I havent tried it the cheesecake way yet! Do these come out more sturdy than cake pops? That white chocolate is a beast and always drags my pops down into the pool of chocolate…

    • Kate@Diethood July 12, 2011 at 7:08 PM - Reply

      Hi Lindsey!! I think they were a bit better than the cake pops because they weren’t as crumbly. The white chocolate is a beast, I agree… If you can see in the photos, I didn’t try to make them all perfect – I let the white chocolate look like a wrap, if I can call it that. :)

    • Kerry Rojas July 14, 2011 at 12:28 PM - Reply

      You can thin out the white chocolate by using a little vegetable oil.

    • Kristin March 28, 2012 at 7:14 PM - Reply

      You can also do brownie pops.. witch hold together better then the cake pops.. MUCH sturdier!.. :)
