Cake pops are surprisingly easy to make. With a tiny bit of practice, you'll be whipping out a batch in no time.
These are made with lollipop sticks. You can also use miniature ice cream cones for a different look.
They make pretty little party favors/snacks too. Poke a bunch into a (covered) styrofoam block and you have a table centerpiece.
When you get really comfortable with the process, it is amazing what you can create! Check out the Bakerella website to see how much fun you can have with decorations. She is incredible!
For now, here are the basics to get you started ...
6. Insert lollipop sticks into each ball and then chill for a few hours. Or put them
in the freezer to chill them more quickly.
7. Melt your chocolate according to the package instructions. I used the
microwave, stopping and stirring at 10-second intervals.
8. Dip each ball into chocolate and place on cookie sheet. This will create a "flat-
topped" cake pop. If you'd like the pops to stay round(ish), poke the sticks into
some styrofoam. I wrapped a block in some pretty wrapping paper and then poked
the sticks in. If you're not using lollipop sticks, try using a fork or spoon.
9. Allow the chocolate to set.
10. Decorate using other colors of melts, edible markers, or sprinkles.
(They do look good left as is also.)
11. When the cake balls are completely dry, cover them with small cellophane
bags closed with pretty ribbons. Perfect for handing out at the end of your
