Cake pops!

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Last weekend my husband and I got brave and attempted to make cake pops for dessert. For the first time making them, we were proud of ourselves for how great they turned out! They are pretty time consuming but if you have a free afternoon, these are the perfect little treat to take to a birthday party, dinner party, or even as a surprise for your co-workers. They present so cute and are convenient because you don't need plates or utensils. The verdict: we will definitely be making them again!

What you need:
-Box cake mix (we did one batch of strawberry cake and one batch of vanilla cake)
-3 eggs (for the cake)
-Vegetable oil (for the cake)
-Vanilla icing
-White chocolate bark for melting
-Parchment paper
-Sucker sticks (these were hard to find; we eventually found them at Michael's craft store)

-Cook the cake according to directions on the box
-Let cool

-Break up the cake and mix in a bowl with about 3/4 the jar of icing; can use a mixer or just a heavy spoon

-Spoon out the mixture onto parchment paper into whatever size you prefer. The mixture will fall apart a little bit, don't be alarmed!

-Put in the freezer for 30 minutes; this will help them hold their shape
-Pack them into tight balls

-Melt the chocolate bark; we did it in the microwave and it worked perfectly. Hint: don't use chocolate chips. They are SUCH a pain to melt!
-Dip the end of a sucker stick into the chocolate then push into cake ball. This will help the stick stay "secure"

-Dip into the white chocolate and decorate
-Put in the fridge for about 10 minutes, just long enough to let the chocolate harden
