Cake Pops

Here's a fun one for you, and quite impressive too!  It beats paying for these at Starbucks, although their's are pretty yummy too!  Perfect for parties, kids treat day at school, sports activity treats or gifts for a special friend. 
Here’s what you’ll need:
Who wouldn't love cake on a stick... did I mention, this is a great weight loss tool too... right?  Eat less cake, and more cake pops! lol 

Here's what you'll need:
1 box of your favorite cake mix
1 tub of icing
1 bag of candy melts
1 bag of lollipop sticks
1 styrofoam ball or cube to hold the pops in place

Sprinkles for decorating

Follow the directions on the cake box and make as stated.   Let cake cool completely.  In a large bowl, begin to crumble the cake while adding ¾ tub of the icing.  Trust me, it’ll be plenty sweet! Get your hands in on the action and mix the cake crumbs completely with the icing.  Roll crumbs into balls (the size of walnuts), you can use a cookie spoon to measure each ball exactly.  Make sure that you rinse your hands after every so many balls to maintain the shape of each ball (the mixture is sticky).   Once you have rolled all your cake, stick the cake balls in the freezer for 1 hour.   Melt the candy melts on low heat and stir constantly…you want to keep this thin and runny.  Take a lollipop stick and dip the stick into the candy melts then insert into the center of each ball.  Hold ball over candy melt and spoon over each ball.  Decorate with sprinkles, stick into styrofoam ball to dry.   Enjoy!
