I made these for Bean's class Halloween party. The recipe makes 45-50 cake pops so we had a few leftover for the family. I was glad too because these things are so good! They do take some time to make and decorate and the candy coating takes some time to get use to using. Just be patient and don't forget to tap the excess candy coating off the cake ball. I forgot to do that for the first few and it really used up a lot of the chocolate.
- 1 box cake mix of your choice. (I used Devil's Food.)
- 1 container of ready-made icing. (I used Cream Cheese.)
- Candy Melts or Chocolate Bark
- Waxed paper
- After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
- Mix thoroughly with 1 can cream cheese frosting.
- Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50)
- Chill for several hours. (or put in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.)
- Melt chocolate in microwave per directions on package.
- Dip ends of sticks in the melted chocolate then insert into cake ball. Let the chocolate harden a bit.
- Dip pops in chocolate and lay on wax paper until firm or insert into a Styrofoam block (make sure you tap the stick on the edge of the bowl gently to remove some of the excess chocolate)
