Cake Pops!

My friend, Stephanie, made cake pops last week and they were de-lish.  She was kind enough to share the process with me so I thought I would share it too--it could be a fun weekend baking project! 

Bake a regular cake. 

Let it cool.

Add frosting. ¾ of a regular sized tub.


Roll into balls.

Freeze balls for about 15-30 minutes, depending on how cool your freezer is. Or you can put in the fridge overnight.

Buy chocolate candy chips from Michaels or Joann’s…they come in all sorts of fun colors. They have coupons

Melt chocolate – directions are on the bag.

You really want the chocolate to be the right consistency, or else you’ll have a hard time dipping the cake pops. If you need a thinner consistency, add a little bit of vegetable oil. The candy chips cool fast, so you may have to reheat.

Dip cake pop stick into chocolate, then put on cake ball.

Dip cake pop in chocolate. You may have to spoon some of the chocolate onto the cake pop.

Once chocolate has covered the cake pop, tap the pop on the side of the bowl to get off excess chocolate.

Add sprinkles or whatever you want (crumbled cookies would be good too….)

To cool, place in a colander or buy a piece of Styrofoam. You may have to put them in the fridge to cool, but they cool pretty fast.
