Cake Pops

The other day I made some cake pops for the sweet girls at my MOPS table. I've been blessed to spend a couple mornings a month with these ladies and the least I could do was make them something yummy for our last MOPS of the year. Now here's the bad news, I got too busy at the end of my project and I forgot to take pictures of them when they were done so, now I'm apologizing.

Here's what you need:
1 cake mix
1 container of frosting
A package of sticks for making candy from Michael's
Candy Melts
Treat bags to put them in when they're done
Some cute ribbon to tie the treat bags

 Make the cake according to the directions on the box. Let it cool and then crumble it into a bowl.
 Mix in a container of frosting into the crumbled cake.
 Make the cake/frosting mixture into balls and then chill them in the freezer for a half hour or so.
 Melt a few of the candy melts, dip the tip of the stick into the candy melt and then stick it into the ball. Stick them back in the freezer until the candy melt is nice and hard. I usually put mine back in the freezer for at least another half hour.


Melt the rest of the candy melts according to the directions on the bag and then dip the cake balls in. Twirl them around and tap them lightly on the side of the bowl until the candy coating is smooth and not dripping. Stick the Cake Pop in a styrofoam block to dry and then keep the Cake Pops in the refrigerator or freezer until you are ready to eat them or package them up.
Here are a couple pictures of the cake pops that I made for Judah's 1st Birthday. I like the orange and blue ones that I made for MOPS better but, like I said, I neglected to take pictures. Oh well, next time!
