  • I made my first batch of cake pops and they were not only delicious, but easy as well!  I like them because they taste like cake batter encased in chocolate?  Who can resist?   For Valentine’s Day, I recommend trying them in red velvet or pink champagne!  This is a great 2 day project.  While it requires less than 30 minutes hands on time, there is a lot of waiting in between.
    Bake your favorite cake mix, allow to cool, then crumble into a large mixing bowl.  Using your favorite icing, mix thoroughly and roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with wax or parchment paper.  Freeze for at least a half hour.
    In a small pot on low heat, warm your chocolate {I used Almond Bark}.  Remove cake balls from freezer.  You may want to quickly re-roll your balls for better shape.  Dip your stick a half inch into the chocolate and quickly stick halfway into your cake ball.
    Depending how long this took you, you may be ready to dip your cake balls in chocolate, slightly swirl/tap them to remove excess and dip into the sprinkles of your choice.  However, if you feel your cake balls are going to fall of your stick, freeze for at least a half hour, and remove your chocolate from heat until you are ready to dip.
    These little beauties are truly simple, just require a little patience.  They are a hit with adults and children alike!
