Skip the oven and satisfy your sweet tooth with a make-ahead-friendly recipe for No-Bake Chocolate Cookie Pops!
These festive pops are the confectionery cousin to cake pops and are made with just five ingredients. I repeat: five ingredients!
No-bake desserts come in handy on a variety of occasions, whether you’re trying to beat the heat by steering clear of the oven, or on the opposite side of the spectrum, your oven is on overdrive (hello, holidays!) so you want to free up some valuable real estate during prime oven time.
No matter the reason or the occasion, a quick, no-bake dessert is always a good idea to have in your recipe repertoire. Once you’ve formed your chocolate cookie pops, it’s time for the fun to begin!
Dunk the pops in melted chocolate or candy melts in the color of your choosing. The trick here is that when the cold pops and the warm, melted chocolate meet, the chocolate (or candy melts) will solidify quickly so it’s important to move quickly into the next step…
Decorate the pops with your choice of sprinkles, chopped nuts, toasted coconut or crushed pretzels.

- 18 chocolate sandwich cookies with cream filling
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
- Assorted sprinkles, crushed nuts or toasted coconut flakes
- Lollipop sticks
- Place the cookies in the bowl of a food processor and pulse them until roughly chopped. Add the cream cheese and continue pulsing until the mixture is well combined and there are no large pieces of cookie remaining.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using your hands, squeeze and roll the cookie mixture into 1-inch balls. Insert a lollipop stick into each ball, place them on the baking sheet and freeze them for 30 minutes.
- Melt the chocolate and vegetable oil in the microwave on 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until fully melted. Dip the cookie balls in the melted chocolate then immediately garnish them with sprinkles, crushed nuts or toasted coconut flakes. Return the pops to the baking sheet. Loosely cover and refrigerate them for 1 hour or until the chocolate is set.
- Turn these cookie pops into cookie truffles by serving them sans lollipop sticks.
- This recipe can be easily doubled.

These Are Delightful my children loved them and I loved them. I put a little to much chocolate but it is fine. I will follow the exact recipe next Time, But They Were still good.
I’m so glad your family enjoyed the recipe, Zaniyah!
How long do the cake pops last, and do they have to be refrigerated?
Hi Kylie – The cookie pops will last up to a week when stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
I work at a daycare & our microwave oven is in another room. How can I keep the chocolate from hardening while letting the children take turns dipping?
Hi Mary – You can try putting it in a slow cooker!
Hi, Does the stick stay in the pop without falling in the chocolate and How long do they last. Thank you for sharing.
Hi there, Evy! Store these in an airtight container in the fridge and they’ll last up to a week.
Hi there I will fill you in on a super secret that will have you cake pop master in no time! OK so after you have formed your cake pop balls & you stick your stick lol in the cakepop just about to dip it in the chocolate… Stop there before you stick your stick in your cake pop you want to dip the stick itself into melted chocolate then into your balls & then let them sit just a min & then you can begin dipping into your melted chocolate & instead of dipping try lightly rolling in the melts & then carefully dip the top lol… I really hope all or some of that made some kind of sense to you good luck & take care & God Bless!
Looking at your nutritional info, what is a serving size? And do you have to store these in the fridge since they are made with cream cheese?
Hi Denise – Yes, you should store these in an airtight container in the fridge. And the Estimated Nutrition Facts provides nutritional information for one cookie pop.
Amazing and delicious keep these yummy/easy recipes coming
I’m thrilled you’ve been enjoying Just a Taste, Vanessa!
can we use homemade cheese in the recipe?
That should work!
We made these with Lemon Oreo’s and they came out fantastic. Used yellow melting wafers and then sprinkles to decorate them. Everyone actually loved the lemon over the chocolate one! Imagine that!
