( Hint: Stay tuned through the end of the post)I did it. I made me some Cake Pops. And I loved them. So while I am certain Bakerella will never see my little blog I want to tell her Thank You for introducing me to such deliciousness and helping me gain 5 pounds. So here are my Cake Pops (yes I do believe Cake Pops ought to be capitalized.)
Mmmmm. So I did 2 different types as you can see. The first one is a rocky road flavor. And the second is lemon flavored. And they were both fabulous.
For the Rocky Road one I baked a dark chocolate cake mix because I believe dark chocolate and rocky road were made for each other. Then to the crumbled cake mix I added marshmallows with chocolate frosting. I threw the marshmallows my little food processor along with some cake crumbs so they didn't get to sticky.
lemon sprinkle I have from the Pampered Chef.
I also have a bunch of other ideas to try but I couldn't make them all for one night. So as a memory for me and a spring board for you here are some of my ideas for yummy Cake Pops.
1- Red Velvet cake with mini chocolate chips mixed in and cream cheese frosting dipped in chocolate.
2- German Chocolate cake mix, mixed with 1/4 can coconut pecan frosting and 3/4 can chocolate frosting dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with coconuts and chopped pecans.
3- Chocolate cake mix and chocolate frosting dipped in these white mint flavored candy melts from Bake it Pretty then sprinkled with either crushed grasshopper cookies or crushed andes mints.
4- Spice cake mix with cream cheese frosting. Dipped in red or green candy melts and sprinkled with this apple sprinkle.
Well the possibilities are endless. So go be creative and make your mouth water.
