How to make cake pops…Step 1 – Get a cake
Step 3 – using your hands or a food processor blend the cake into a sand-like consistency. Add 1/2 tub of frosting and blend together.
Step 4 – roll the cake and frosting mixture into balls (about the size of a Tim Bit) and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Pop them in the fridge for 10 minutes to firm up.
Step 5 – using lollipop sticks (available at Bulk Barn) and melted semi-sweet chips (aka chocolate chips) fasten the sticks into the cake balls. TIP: dip the stick in the melted chocolate and then stick into the ball – the chocolate will harden and fasten itself to the cake.
Step 6 – swirl the cake pops in chocolate. Many sites recommend using florist foam to stick the pops into to allow them to dry upright (leaving a perfectly rounded cake pop)…I…having no florist foam…simply put them back on the parchment lined cookie sheet to dry – so they weren’t perfectly rounded…neither am I quite frankly 😉
They taste like chocolate truffles and are addictive. And yes, I made them with the kids!
