For my niece’s birthday last weekend, I made cake pops (and carrot cake – that post should be up soon). I was very short on time, so I have to admit to using a box mix and store-bought frosting. The good thing is that with cake pops, they’re still delicious! The ones I brought to my niece’s birthday had pink and purple sprinkles, these red and white ones (Go Badgers!) I gave to my friends who graduated from UW with me this weekend!
- 1 9×13 chocolate cake
- 3/4 containter of frosting
- 1 package of Wilton candy Melts (I used vanilla)
- Crumble cake in a large bowl until no large pieces remain.
- Add the frosting and mix with the back of a wooden spoon (or your hands) until combined throughout. The consistency should be such that you can form balls that hold their shape without cracking or crumbling.
- Form balls with your hands from the mixture, or use cake pop molds. Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes or so to let them firm up.
- Melt candy melts in the microwave according to the package directions.
- Dip a stick into the candy melts and insert into cake pop. Let that harden for a minute.
- Then dip the pop into the candy coating to cover it entirely.
