Cake Pops!

This was my first attempt at making Cake Pops!

They were a big hit, even with the adults in the crowd!

These are so easy to make.

First bake a cake according to the directions. After the cake has cooled, simple crumble it in a large bowl. (Note: I used a cake that I had in the freezer for a birthday that didn't get used. I let it thaw, then crumbled it.)

Next, add about a cup to a cup and a half of frosting. I used a homemade recipe, but you can use store bought it you want.

Mix it all together forming a big ball. Break off small pieces and roll into small balls.

Place the small balls on a cookie sheet and freeze.

Next, melt some chocolate and dip the stick into the chocolate before inserting into the cake ball. This will help keep the ball on the stick while dipping it. Stick the cookie sheet in the freezer for a few minutes to let the stick set good.

Dip the cake pop in melted chocolate, almond bark, etc. Swirl a little to get the excess off. Sprinkle with colored sugar, candies, etc.

Stick the cake pops in a piece of Styrofoam as you finish dipping them. Put them back in the freezer for a couple of hours.

That's it!!
