Danielle and I tried making cake pops today and they did not turn out all that pretty, but they sure were delicious! We originally saw the idea here and they were supposed to look something like this:
I figured I would still share the tutorial just in case anyone wanted to try making these on their own.
What You Need:
- Box of Cake Mix (we used vanilla cake)
- Vanilla Frosting
- Mini Chocolate Chips
- White Chocolate for melting
- Green food coloring
- Cake Pop Sticks
How to Make the Pops
Bake the cake according to the box instructions. Let the cake cool completely. Once the cake has cooled, take a fork and crumble the cake.
Add the entire tub of frosting and 1 cup of mini chocolate chips to the cake and mix in well (It is best to use your hands). Once the frosting has been completely mix in with the cake, roll your dough into 1" balls (they can be bigger if you'd like). Begin melting your chocolate by your preferred method. Once the chocolate is melted, mix in green food coloring until it is your desired shade of green.
Once the chocolate is melted, dip a cake pop stick into the chocolate and insert the stick into the rolled cake ball. Once all of the sticks have been put into the cake balls, put in the freezer to let the chocolate and cake harden.
After about 30 minutes, remove the cake pops from the freezer. If necessary, remelt your chocolate. Dip each pop into the melted chocolate until each pop is thoroughly covered. Let the chocolate harden and enjoy!
As you can tell, ours did not turn out as pretty as the original option. If you are looking for a more perfect looking cake pop, you will need to spend a great deal of time molding the chocolate as it hardens. Either way, the cake pops were pretty darn delicious!
