Happy 16th Birthday Tristan

Wednesday, January 11th was Tristan's 16th Birthday.  When I asked what kind of cake I could bake him, he said he'd rather have some Oreo Balls.  I didn't get them made until Wednesday evening because he had a home soccer game Tuesday night that lasted until almost 10 pm!  They did win the game, though  4 - 2, and T scored one of the goals.  I made the Oreo Balls into pops and here are some pictures of them.  T is really enjoying them.  They are a yummy treat.

Happy Birthday sweet Tristan.  Thanks for all the joy you've brought to so many lives.  I love you.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. These look great! Please post the recipe and where you can find the sticks.

    1. Hi Mag, thanks for your comment. These are a little labor intensive, but well worth the effort! Here is what what you'll need:
      1 block of cream cheese at room temp
      1 bag of Oreos (T likes Double Stuff)
      1 package of Vanilla Almond Bark
      The sticks were by Wilton, and I found them at Wal-Mart on the cake supply aisle.
      If you have a food processor, that is the way to go, mine is not working at the moment. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer and got the cream cheese nice and creamy then added the cookies a little at a time. (I put the cookies in a gallon sized zip lock bag and mashed them with an iron skillet.) I lined a cookie sheet with wax paper and used a small scoop to make the balls. I put the cookie sheet with all the balls in the freezer for a short while to firm up and then added the sticks. I melted my almond bark in the microwave (be careful with that bark, only heat in short 15 to 30 second intervals, if it gets overheated, it will get all grainy and it is ruined, I usually heat only 1 or 2 blocks at a time, you won't need the whole package) and I took 3 or 4 balls out of the freezer at a time to coat them. Place the coated pops on a fresh sheet of wax paper to set up. I also used some Wilton candy melts in red. Good luck.

  2. Lucky boy that Tris. Pops look great. Want to try them.
