Super Cute Cake Pops…

I’ve been seeing cake pops everywhere – at Starbucks, in magazines, on the web, so I decided I’d give it a try. How hard could it be? Roll cake into a ball and dip in chocolate, easy…and it was! I had to get the hang of it, but after a couple it was easy peasy…and oh, so cute! Check our bakerella.com for lots of ideas.

Here’s the recipe:

1 box of cake mix
1 small can of frosting
dipping chocolate
lollypop sticks
sprinkles or other decorations
styrofoam

Bake the cake as directed on the back of package in a 9×13 pan. Let cool and crumble into mixing bowl. Add can of frosting and mix together. Should be of a consistency that when you squeeze into a ball it holds together, but not sticky. Roll into balls, mine where about 2″or so. Place on cookie sheet and place in freezer for about 15 minutes, just until they get really cold and firm. Meanwhile, melt the dipping chocolate (you can use chocolate bark or those candy wafers from Hobby Lobby or Michaels) according to the package directions. When ready to dip, dip one end of the stick into the candy and insert into ball. Dip the ball into the chocolate covering completely and let excess drip off. (Bakerella gave the best tip – hold pop in one hand and tap, tap, tap until the excess runs off. Watch her do it on her website.) Sprinkle with decorations at this point – once candy sets the sprinkles won’t stay. Stand up pop in styrofoam and let dry.
