Cake Pops have without a doubt become one of those most popular sweet treat trends in years.
It is a form of cake styled as a lollipop. From the day first time I
heard about them, I wanted to make them, but was looking for a simple
and reliable recipe.
The other day my classmate brought some Cake Pops for her birthday made
by her. The recipe sounded so easy that I tried to make them just the
next day. And here is my first attempt of making Cake Pops. Hope you
like it :)
1. Add cake to a large bowl. Crumble until it resembles fine crumbs
Add in the cheese cream a little bit at a time until cake is moist and can hold a ball shape, yet still slightly crumbly.
Use your hands to incorporate the cheese cream into the cake crumbs.
Roll the mixture into a tight ball and place on a plate. Repeat until all the cake mixture has been rolled into balls.
Melt 2-4 ounces of white or black chocolate in the microwave.
Dip the tip of the cake pop sticks into the white chocolate and insert into the cake balls about half-way.
Freeze for about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare all of your decorating supplies. Melt the remaining
chocolate in a large cup. Make sure you have enough chocolate to
completely submerge the cake ball.
Remove cake balls from freezer. Dip cake balls carefully into the chocolate until covered.
Let the excess chocolate drip off. Swirl and tap gently if needed.
Add the sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet. It will harden quickly.
Stick the decorated cake pop into a styrofoam block to finish setting.
Place into the freezer to speed up setting time.
