Here we go!

 

Don’t need much of an introduction for these yummy pops, besides mentioning that they’re CRAZY easy to make and I used a slightly different cake-pop method.

Anyways, I used Betty Crocker chocolate Chip Cookie mix and instead of using regular butter, I used Land-O-Lakes 50% less fat butter spread. The result was fluffy cake-like chocolate-chip goodness. Why you may ask did I use buttery spread? Well, since I’m just a little obsessed with being healthy, I decided to cut the fat and calories a bit by using the 50% less fat spread! It was amazing!

Chocolate-Chip Cookie Dough Cake Pops:

  • 1 package Betty Crocker Chocolate-Chip Cookie Mix
  • 1/2 cup 50% less fat butter spread/margarine- at room temperature (I used Land-o-Lakes)
  • 1 egg- at room temperature
  • PAM Baking Flavor
  • 1 cup homemade vanilla frosting
  • 2-3 cups melted dark chocolate (I used Ghiradelli 70% Cacao)

Vanilla Frosting:

  • 2-3 cups sifted confectioner’s sugar
  • 3-4 tbsp milk (I used Skim Plus)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2-1 tbsp unsalted butter- at room temperature (Yes, I used real butter for this)

1. Preheat the oven 350 degrees. Spray a large cookie sheet with PAM. In a large bowl add cookie mix, egg and butter. Mix all together until incorporated well and forms into cookie-dough texture. Drop about 2 tbsp rounds onto the cookie sheet. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, until soft, and medium-brown on the bottom. Remove and cool.

2. To make the frosting, in a large bowl add the butter and beat with a hand mixer until creamy. With the mixer on low add in the sifted confectioner’s sugar, increasing the speed as you add more sugar. After you’ve added all the sugar, beat in about 2-3 tbsp milk and vanilla extract. Frosting should be thick and cream (as if you were to frost a cupcake). Pour more/less milk to achieve that consistency.

3. In a large bowl crumble about 3/4 of the batch of cookies. Add the frosting and mix until you’ve reached a crumbly, dough-like consistency. Roll into balls and place on the baking sheet to freeze for about 30 minutes. Before freezing, place a lollipop stick into the balls, so the stick hardens with the cake and stays put. Remove and dip one-by-one into the melted, cooled chocolate. stand up-right in a glass or stick into a styrofoam slab to dry. Eat! I liked mine with a glass of cold fat-free milk :)

    This sounds quite easy and can’t wait to try it! Does the melted chocolate get added to the homemade frosting for the outer coating or is that mixed into the cookie crumbles?

  • brooke wilson

    Your recipes are great. Just so you know the picture you are showing of your chocolate pops is showing that you bloomed your chocolate. Not suppose to have white swirls . choc was not at correct dipping tepm. will make choc grainy and gritty

  • Zaine

    they are mouth watering!!!!!!! holy moly, gawakamoli they look awesome!

  • craig

    What happens to the 1/4 of the cookie batch that doesn’t get crumbled?

  • http://bbughtifulmassage.com Becky

    Fantastic recipe! I served them at a recent party. They were a huge hit. Thanks!

    Brook Wilson, was your comment constructive or just criticism?

  • http://www.cakepopsrecipe.com nicole demascio

    i love these cake pops….BUT i can’t print out the ingredients it prints out pictures and everything maybe its the printer but it is deffently NOT me. fix this for me!!!!!

  • Henny verkyk

    It sounds great, have never made them and only recently heard about cake pops. I’m interested in making them. Can you tell me how many pops this recipe makes?
    Thanks

  • Nilsa E. Pratts

    I don”t speak English, but I like this recipe. THANK YOU SO MUCH. Es cierto, que hago con la masa que reserve?

  • jean whillie

    Two things brooke mind ur own buisness. Really? How rude and nicole write it down or get a life. I feel this website does a teriffic job. Then u have the privalage to leave constructive critisim or comments not bull that waste peoples time. Its rude,annoying and frankly grow up. If your printer doesnt work write it down. Dont blame the site or tell them to fix it. Fix yourself. Then to tell them there balls are made wrong becuase the cho wasnt temp right. Really. Along with every other moron who has to write about there life ina comment. Keep it to the top polite and constructive. And give these people credit. I dont see u makeing amazing treats and running a site. Think before you leave acomment.

  • Sarah

    Jean, no need to be rude. I actually appreciated Brooks comment. It is nice to know when there is a problem and how to fix it. She did not say the balls were made wrong and she said the recipes are amazing.

  • Shay

    I like it with the white swirls, it gives it a new look.
    N to hell with grainy n gritty. ANY kind of chocolate
    is damn good!

  • Pilar

    Hi, they look great! One question what do you do with the rest of the cookie batch. Thanks!

  • debbie jones

    I was wondering can you use anything else besides lollipop sticks?
    I can only find them at a cake store and they only sell them by the
    hundred?

  • Shell

    I would crumble the rest of the cookies very fine (maybe in my food processor) and right after dipping in the chocolate, dip the tops into the cookie crumbs.

  • Wendy

    I thought the receipe was great,there always are critics,however the hint that the chocolate was not the correct temp. was helpful. I would want this information… I say KUDOS and thankyou very much!!!!

  • Adriana

    Ive been making cake pops now for a few months and everyone loves them. This cookie recipe sounds delish for kids especially !! And for Brooks comment I have always wondered why the choc sometimes gets white grainy!! So thanks :) and as for Jean: Calm down. Don’t be jumping to conclusions so fast.

  • Marlene

    How many cake pops does this recipe make? They look great!

  • Bopha

    @Debbie, you can actually purchase smaller bags at Micheals or Hobby Lobby and their about $2-$4.

  • sry i don’t have a name!

    Our recipe didn’t turn out to look like yours. We did do step by step. What do you thing went wrong?

  • Linda

    The cookies were crispy, and when I broke it up and mixed the frosting in it, it turned chocolate. What should I have done differently?

    • Mariza

      sounds like you didn’t wait for the cookies to totally cool before
      mixing in the frosting. wait a bit from taking the cookies out of the
      oven to mixing with your frosting next time.

  • Laurel Carter

    So was the chocolate too hot or too cold? I had this happen to me before but don”t know what I doing wrong. Help!

  • Jenna

    About how many does this recipe make?

  • Terry

    I personally appreciate the recipe. I’ve been asked to make this new crave and had no idea how to do it. I’m sure they will come out great. Just an idea for everyone, have a trial run before you take then to a party.

    • harry

      thanks master chef

  • maria

    these are pretty good but way way too chocolaty!

  • http://yahoo.com danielle gomez

    Ok so it sounds easy but when i put cake pops i chocolate and take iit out why have it up-right?

  • Summer Dorn

    I make these with red velvet cake, cream cheese icing and white chocolate. They are to die for!!!

  • Lisa

    these look amazing!!! been looking for a cake pop recipe :)

  • Veronica

    they sell the sticks at Walmart in different lengths and sizes. I am going to attempt making these tomorrow!!!!

  • Deborah

    They tasted great, but unfortunately mine kept falling off the sticks. Not sure what I did wrong.

  • BEth

    these things are the new CUPCAKES!!! cant wait..and can you roll them in the “cake pop” BALL yourself?

  • Becka

    I have a 6yr. who love to cook and bake and she went wild for this cookie dough recipe…she woke me up the next day at 5 am to start making them….she had a blast and my whole family came by to try them cuz my sister stopped by the told them they were awsome….Thanks so Much!

  • Danielle

    Great site, I’m wondering though, do these need to be refrigerated or would they work for bake sales?

  • http://n/a Gina

    Can I use another kind of frosting? One that I could find in a store? If so, which one? Thanks!

  • Eileen

    Can you make these ahead of time and freeze?

  • julie

    yes, you can make these ahead of time, and store bought frosting can be used if needed.. be careful freezing.. the chocolate and cookie should be almost the same temp to negate the choc from cracking…

    just got done making this recipe… hope it is as good as all my others! My customers will hopefully agree..

  • Jennifer L

    Is the term frosting the same as icing, we use this term in Britain?

    • Anonymous

      Hi Jennifer, I believe frosting and icing are the same.

    • haley

      Icing Tends To Be Sweeter and goes on Cupcakes or cookies. But They are technically the same thing. But be careful about the taste of it!

  • Jmkdiva

    I believe there is a typo in the recipe. I made these this weekend and you can’t make buttercream frosting with only 1/2 -1 TBSP of butter. I started with 2 TB. and had to keep increasing it. I ended up using 1/2 CUP of butter to get the right consistency. I believe she meant 1/2 CUP, not 1/2 TBSP. Big difference.

    I was very disappointed with these. I’m a very accomplished baker but these did not turn out well. They were very dense and did not have a good texture. I used 1 cup of frosting as the recipe instructed, perhaps it needed more. I will not be making these again.

    • Poppintreats1025

      oh and btw *you didnt have to make them in the first place and u dont have to get SO mad*

  • Christy

    Made this with Martha Stewarts fluffy buttercream frosting and with Wilton chocolate. They were amazing. Great recipe!!!!

  • Heidimkinder

    These were fun and easy to make. I would recommend taking the cookies out of the oven a little before 12-15 mins, as mine were too crunchy. I also agree with the typo, it probably should be 1/2 CUP of butter for the frosting.

    Overall, they were a big hit and I will make them again!

  • cdl123456

    can you use this recipe for the bake pop pan?

  • Clarktiffanie

    I assume these must be stored in the refrigerator? Just want to make sure as I am giving these as part of my Christmas bags.

  • Bakergirl29

  • Bethaney Carlson

    Why even bother with the 50% less fat butter?!? Youre making CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH CAKE POPS! And using prepackaged cookie dough mix is not healthy by any means
