Here is a quick post for today. I’ve had this in my archives for a couple of weeks now and need to just finally post it already. Not that I didn’t think this recipe was yummy. Your standard cake pops, but with cute decorations. I love cake pops though. I think they are genius with the hard chocolate on the outside with the soft moist cake inside. Like a truffle, except with cake, right!? Yum! But I’ve just come to the conclusion that I hate to make them. I am not a craft person at all!! Any time I try to craft, whatever I make turns out looking like something a 3rd grader would make, if that :/ and I have come to the conclusion that this fits more under the craft category then the cooking/baking category. That’s just my theory, but if you don’t mind the tedious work that goes into these they do turn out so fun and cute for Halloween. My kids love them! Hence my daughters pier pressure that drove me to make these. But I have to say, never again. Just not my thing, but very good. My favorite is chocolate on chocolate {chocolate cake with chocolate frosting}. So scrumptious!! Enjoy!

*Prepare a cake from a mix according to package directions or use your favorite recipe. Cake must be cooled completely.

Line baking sheet with waxed paper. Crumble cake into fine crumbs in large bowl.

Add frosting to cake crumbs; mix until well blended. Roll into 1 1/2-inch balls (about 2 tablespoons cake mixture per ball); shape into squares or triangles. Place on prepared baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour or freeze 10 minutes to firm.

When cake balls are firm, place candy coating in deep microwavable bowl. Melt according to package directions, making sure not to overheat coatings. Dip one lollipop stick about 1/2 inch into melted coating; insert stick into cake ball (no more than halfway through). Return to baking sheet in refrigerator to set. Repeat with remaining cake balls and sticks.

Working with one cake pop at a time, hold stick and dip cake ball into melted coating to cover completely, letting excess coating drip off. Place in foam block to set. With candy corn cake pops, repeat dipping into orange and white candy coating after each layer has set completely. Return to refrigerator after each dip. If you are applying sprinkles, do so immediately after dipping into melted candy coating.
