Cake pops

 

 

 

 

Cake pops!  The notorious cake pops…. These babies are so delicious and so easy to make.  Yes they take a little time but there are so many short cuts you can take.  I made these for the CFL Food Blogger bake Sale a few weeks ago and again for my daughter’s 8th birthday party (pics will be coming this week, I promise).  They were a huge hit each time and I just needed to share with you all their sweetness.

Better late than never right…

I know, I know… I am definitely falling behind in my keeping up with whats going on in my life for ThatsSoYummy.  I have been wanting to give you guys a recap of the Central Florida Food Blogger Bake Sale.  You know the amazing bake sale that is put by food bloggers nationwide to raise money for Share our Strength.

Yes, I know this bake sale happened 2 weeks ago, at the Winter Garden Harvest Festival, but I still wanted to share with you all the results of the bake sale and give a shout out to all of the amazing food bloggers that participated in it and the business that came together.  Now although it rained off and on the whole day, and though we did not make half of what we made last year, we were still able to help feed 14 children for an entire year! I think that is pretty amazing!!! We were able to come together and just talk about food, recipes, blogging and friendship, it was so nice see those who your only interaction is through Twitter or Instagram

Cake Pops

Yield: 40 cake pops

Cake Pops

A bite sized treat of cake on a stick!

Ingredients

  • 1 box Yellow Cake Mix, (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
  • 1 can (16 oz.) Buttercream Frosting
  • 1 package Chocolate Bark (regular or white chocolate)
  • Wax paper
  • Lollipop Sticks
  • Sprinkles, (if you choose)

Directions

  1. Bake Cake following directions on back of box. Once cake has cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
  2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can buttercream frosting. I like to use my fingers... 🙂
  3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet. Should give you around 40 cake balls.
  4. Chill for several hours.
  5. Melt some chocolate in a microwavable bowl. This will be the chocolate you will dip your lollipop sticks in before inserting into cake ball. Dip lollipop stick into melted chocolate and then insert into chilled cake ball.
  6. I then like to put my lollipop cake pops in the freezer for a few hours or even overnight.
  7. Now, melt chocolate in microwave bowl per directions on package.
  8. Dip entire cake pop into the coating and then decorate with sprinkles.
  9. You can either place these cake pops standing upright into styrofoam block or face down on waxed paper.
