Cookies n' Cream cakepops!

... so i recently made these cakepops for a Christmas party. The theme was red, white, and black so I designed the cakepops accordingly. 

Super easy, and super fun! here's how I did it.
Bake up a vanilla cake using your favorite homemade recipe, or use store-bought vanilla cake mix. To make 14 cake pops, you will need 1/3 of the cooked cake. Crumble 1/3 of the cake until there are not large lumps, add about 2/3 of a cup of vanilla or cream cheese frosting (I just eyeball the amount of frosting). Mix well. Then add, 1/4 cup of Oreo cookie crumbs (I just eyeball that too)... Once it's well incorporated into the dough, you can start forming them into cake balls. 
 Once in balls, stick in the freezer for about 15-30 minutes to firm up. While cake balls are in freezer, prepare your white chocolate coating. Using a double boiler or microwave, place about 1 cup of white chocolate chips and add about 3-4 tablespoons of vegetable oil (I just eyeball that amount) and heat until smooth. If using microwave, heat in 30-second intervals mixing in between. What you want it a smooth consistency. The purpose of the vegetable oil is to make the chocolate thin enough, in order to dip the cakepops into. Dip lollipop sticks into the cakeballs, then dip the entire cakepop into the white chocolate.

 Then after, just decorate! For these, I used Oreo crumbs and food coloring.
Here's another look...
 Here's what the inside looks like =) This was my sample taste. it was yummy! tastes just like cookies n' cream ice cream, but just a cake version. =)
