Chick cake pops are an Easter favorite at my house. They’re cute, delicious and a big hit with kids of all ages! The recipe and instructions I used originally came from Bakerella, which called for boxed cake and cream cheese frosting and the result is a lot like a truffle. However, I prefer the Oreo cookie recipe below from My Little Cupcake Pop as I find it easier to work with than the cake version. Select either recipe and let the games begin!
In food processor, grind up cookies then transfer to a bowl.
Add cream cheese and mix BY HAND until it’s the consistency of PlayDoh.
Roll into 1″ balls and refrigerate 10 minutes before assembly.
Melt orange candy melts as described above. When liquid, pour a small amount into a cake decorating bag fitted with a #5 tip and pipe out beaks onto parchment paper or waxed paper. (In lieu of a decorating bag, use a ziplock bag, snipping off a small hole in one corner of the bag). Candy hardens quickly.
Dab a tiny amount of candy melt onto the back of the beak and affix to cake pop.
Apply the feet
Dab a tiny amount of yellow candy melt onto the back of leaf-shaped candy decorations and affix to cake pop.
Melt a few chocolate chips as described above. Dip the end of a lollipop stick into the chocolate and dab dots onto cake pop.
