4th of July Cake Pops

This post originally published on a previously-owned blog and was imported here to simplify my life. My family eats much healthier than this nowadays, but I include this post for memories and history. I hope you enjoy the content!

I’ve been wanting to make these for months.  They aren’t that complicated, but let me just say they took a lonnng time to complete.  But “first times” for everything take longer than normal – next time will be so much easier.

Yes, I went through and separated all the Blues and Whites because I could not find single-color stars anywhere.

 

1. Bake a cake (or 2).
2. Cool completely.
3. Dump into bowl.

 

4. Crumble completely.
5. Mix with almost a whole tub of frosting (not quite all).
6. Form into 1-inch balls.
7. Refrigerate for a couple hours (or overnight).
8. Melt your candy melts (or chocolate coating) – whatever you decide on.
9. HERE IS THE TRICK step I added myself – Dip ball into candy coating BEFORE putting ball onto stick. The candy dries almost immediately and will stay on the stick that way.  I lost many cake balls before figuring that one out.
10. Put cake ball on stick – push it through a little less than halfway.
11. Dip completely in candy coating – I actually spooned it on and spread.  Whatever you decide, do it FAST.
12. Dip/Cover in sprinkles….again, FAST.
13. Place in styrofoam board to complete drying process.
14. Optional: put in individual treat bags and tie them up all prettily.  I just did it for some of them.
Aren’t they cute?!
I actually made these sugar cookies before the cake pops as backup in case they flopped.

Turns out, my husband was practically inhaling them, so I think they were pretty successful!
