Red, White & Blue Oreo Cupcake Bites

Red, White & Blue Oreo Cupcake Bites

The 4th of July is just around the corner, so I decided to make some red, white and blue Oreo cupcake bites. I love Bakerella - what's not to love, right? -  she makes the cutest cake pops and cupcake bites.  Her Oreo Truffles are a favorite in our house. My 16-year-old daughter likes making them for her friends on their birthdays. 

Bakerella made a tutorial on how to make cupcake bites a while back, these are very similar to the cupcake pops, except they're not on sticks. And since my kids prefer the Oreo Truffles, that's what I used for these cupcake bites. If you want to see Bakerella's Cupcake Bites tutorial click here

I followed her directions for making Oreo truffles. You can click here to see it. But after rolling them into balls and putting them in the freezer to let them set, I then proceeded to follow her Cupcake Bites instructions. But since I didn't have the candy mold that she used, I had to improvise. I'll show you how I did it.

First, I placed mini baking cups in the mini muffin pan.


Then I melted my chocolate according to the instructions on the wrapper. I got them from Walmart.


I spooned the melted chocolate into the baking cup, and then I immediately pressed an Oreo ball onto it.


I then put the entire mini muffin pan into the freezer for a few minutes to let the chocolate set. Then I peeled off  the baking cups from the chocolate and this is what it looked like.


I melted my other Almond Bark, same brand as the chocolate, except it's white. Then I dipped the top of the cupcake bite into the melted white chocolate, placed a red or blue M&M candy on top, decorated with sprinkles and I'm done! Cute and yummy, just the way I like it!

  6. My kids love making Oreo truffles but I hate that they always end up looking so misshapen. Your little bites look adorable! Like little mini cupcakes, but better (since I don't like cake). Definitely making these!!

  14. These look really good! Thank you for stopping by my blog earlier and commenting or I might not have noticed the recipe! I've never made cake pops or tiny bits like this, mostly because I don't want to eat them all myself, but my man just got home from deployment this week and I think I could justify making these!
