This is How I Cook: Cake Pops!

Oh lordy lordy lordy! This was an experience. I'm not gonna lie....I got very frustrated. LOL But this is all due to cooking/baking experience and knowledge...not the recipe, I don't think.

I followed this easy version on pinterest but I kinda bought the wrong chocolate and the dipping didn't work so well...

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

- cake mix
- 1 can of icing
- sticks
- mini bags
- melting chocolate


Make your cake according to the instructions on the box. ( I used Spice cake and Buttercream icing). 


Once finished and fully cooled, crumble it into a bowl and mix in your can of icing (I used about 3/4th and it was perfect).


Roll your balls and place on a cookie sheet in the fridge over night.


Once balls are cold, melt your chocolate. Dip your stick in the chocolate and insert half way through your balls on the flat side.


You should use thin chocolate that you can dip your pop in, but I screwed up and thought chocolate chips would work. Not the case. I had to drip my chocolate on to coat and placed them on a sheet to harden. I also sprinkled crushed candy canes on top to add some pizzaz.


 Then I put them in mini bags and tied with a little ribbon! :) So cute!

Cheers,
Messy
