Cake Pops

This is another recipe I found on a friend's blog that I want to try! I love the Cake Pops from Starbucks, so maybe Evy and I can make these for all of us to enjoy!

This is the recipe came from Bakerella.

1 box cake mix (I used white but you can use any flavor) 
1 can frosting (I used cream cheese)
Wax paper
1 package of colored candy melts 
1 package of Lollipop sticks 
  1. Cook cake as directed on box for 13x9 cake. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
  2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can frosting.
  3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (I was out of wax paper but it still worked with out it)
  4. Melt chocolate in the microwave per directions on package.
  5. Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in a little of the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls. (Insert a little less than halfway.)
  6. Place them in the freezer for a little while to firm up.
  7. Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don’t tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off, too.
  8. Place in a styrofoam block to dry. (Since we didn’t have one we used coffee mugs)
  9. Cover in sprinkles.
