One of my good friends taught me how to make these adorable little cake pops. I have a cake pop maker, but you can make them just as good without the maker. It is an awesome project to do with little kids. Cake pops are a great little treat to take to parties or to just enjoy yourself. This is how to make them without the cake pop maker.
Things you’ll need:
- Cookie Sheet
- Wax paper
- Cake pop stand
- Cake pop sticks
- Cake box mix of choice
- ¼ cup of frosting
- Dipping chocolate or chocolate chips
- Sprinkles (optional)
Melt chocolate on low in small crock pot or on stove. Add a little oil if needed to thin the chocolate. Bake a cake by following the directions on the back of the cake mix. Cool the cake completely.
When cake is completely cooled, crumble it up with your hands in a big bowl. Make sure you crumble the cake completely. Add the frosting and combine. Roll a little of the cake in a ball to test the mixture. If it does not stick together, add more frosting to the crumbled cake. If it is too sticky add a little more crumbled cake to the mixture.
Roll cake mixture into small balls and place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Put cake pops in freezer until they are hard-about fifteen minutes.
Dip the tips of the cake pop sticks in the chocolate then stick them through the cake pops. Be careful not to push the stick all the way through the other side of the cake pop. Freeze again till the sticks are firm in the cake pops.
Dip the cake pops in the melted chocolate and place them on the cake pop stand and freeze till hard. Enjoy!
You will need to store them in the freezer, because they melt pretty fast.
