I think everybody is crazy about cake pops right now so of course I have to try them, right? Cake pops are sooo cute!! They're also very easy to make. Another thing is, supposedly this is the Starbucks cake pop recipe. Who knows...
So, go ahead and try your hand at making these adorable sweets.
9-by-13-inch Vanilla Cake for Cupcake Pops
2 cups Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting
1 package chocolate coating bark
1 package white coating bark or pink candy melts
Sprinkles, for garnish
1. Crumble cake in a bowl with your hands (or with a food processor). Crumble until really fine. Now add your frosting and blend together, using a spoon, until the batter comes together in a big ball.
2.Roll mixture into 1 1/4- to 1 1/2-inch balls; transfer to prepared baking sheet. Cover with parchment-paper-lined aluminum foil. Transfer to refrigerator until chilled, about 2 hours or to a freezer for about 10 minutes.
3.Meanwhile, melt chocolate in a bowl. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Remove cake balls from freezer and dip the bottom of each cupcake into the chocolate; transfer, bottom-side up, to prepared baking sheet. To make cake pops, insert a lollipop stick into the bottom of each cake ball. Let chocolate set, 15 to 20 minutes.
4.Melt white chocolate or pink candy melts in a bowl set over (but not touching) simmering water. Dip the tops of the cupcakes into the chocolate and place right-side up on prepared baking sheet or stick lollipop sticks into a Styrofoam square. Place a candy-coated chocolate in the center of each and top with sprinkles. Let dry completely.
I thought I'd include some ideas on how to decorate your pops. Have fun!
Enjoy your cake pops!!
