Halloween Cake Pops

Donna Pilato

I made these Halloween cake pops for our Halloween party. They were more time consuming than other treats are to make, but were worth the trouble. You bake a 9 x 13 inch cake from a box mix, any flavor. After it has fully cooled down you break the cake into fine crumbs using your hands. Mix in 3/4 of a can of prepare frosting, any flavor of your choice, Next, form small, golf ball size balls using your hands and packing them as tightly as possible. Chill for several hours in your refrigerator. Next, melt two pounds of candy melt in any color you choose (these pops can be made for any occasion, so you could choose a normal color for the chocolate). Working quickly, dip the tip of a lollipop stick into the chocolate and then into one of the cake balls, up to the center of the ball. Quickly twist the cake ball in the chocolate covering it completely, but avoiding the stick. Let the excess drip off into the chocolate bowl. Push the prepared cake pop into a Styrofoam block. After the chocolate has firmed back up, decorate as you please using frosting, candies, or cupcake decorations.

Note: Do not overload the pops with chocolate when dipping, otherwise the weight will break the cake off the stick.
