Valentine Cake Pop Tutorial



Have you tried making cake pops?  I'm not a baker....at ALL and I was
able to successfully make these!



All you need is a cake mix, frosting, chocolate melting wafers and sprinkles!



1.  Make the chocolate cake according to the package directions.
(I added 1 tsp of mint flavoring for a special twist!)

2.  After allowing the cake to cool completely, break into pieces and add enough
frosting to make a gooey mess that sticks together!  Roll into balls.

3.  To attach the stick, dip it in melted chocolate and then push it into the
cake ball....allow chocolate to harden.

4.  Dip the cake ball in the melted chocolate and spoon the chocolate over it
to get any missed spots!


I don't have a double boiler, so I just put water in a pan and place a metal bowl in
the pan....the key is to keep the temperature LOW!




Once the cake pop is dripping in chocolate, add some cute sprinkles.....


And you get these......





Happy Valentine Baking!

Well when you said your not a baker and you could make these, that was all the encouragement I needed. Think I'll make some for Valentines Day, your tutorial is excellent.

They look delicious. I know my boys would love these. I have yet to make cake pops, but may have to try them sooner rather than later.
