How To Make Cake Pops

I’m obsessed with Cake Pops! No celebration around here is complete without them and as they’re bite-size they’re perfect for little children or anyone trying not to eat a huge slab of cake!  The other thing that makes them so great is that kids eat the whole thing.  Not just the frosting and the top, but they’re about 2 bites of yummy goodness.  And guess what? Cake Pops are easy to make!

1) To start simply make a cake. No, no, not a gourmet one but a simple box cake {or whip up your own!}

2) Once it’s cooked crumble it into a bowl and add 2/3 can of frosting and mix.

3) Roll your sleeves up and make little balls and add to a tray.  I like to use wax paper to make sure nothing sticks but you don’t have to.

4) In the meantime melt some chocolate, chips work just fine.  I melt it in the microwave for about a minute.

5) To decorate put it on a stick and dip in chocolate. Then add sprinkles and let it harden.

6) After that’s done you can also add words using frosting piped on.

My favorite thing to do with Cake Pops is make a big batch (say 2 cake boxes) and freeze some of the balls. I simply lay them flat in a ziploc bag. Then the next time you need an idea in a pinch, you grab some out, add a stick and frost them! As they’re cold the chocolate will harden very quickly!

My friend Sheila was inspired by my Cake Pops, clearly hers are way more awesome!
