Valentine Bliss

February 14, 2010

I work at a gym. A gym where nearly everyone has one heck of a sweettooth. So no one minds one bit when I go into a baking frenzy and bring my treats in to share! For Valentine’s Day, I decided to finally try Bakerella’s famed Cake Pops. They’re fantastic! Absolutely lived up to the hype. They are a bit time consuming, but very fun once you get the hang of it!

I heard lots of “Mmmmmm”s and “Ohmagahhhhh”s when these guys were bitten into πŸ˜‰

Valentine Cake Pops
1 box Red Velvet Cake mix
1 can Cream Cheese frosting (or about 3/4 cup homemade frosting)
1 package chocolate candy melts (I used chocolate and white chocolate)
lollipop sticks
sprinkles and candies for decorating

Cook your cake mix in a 13×9″ pan according to the box directions.

Once the cake has cooked completely, crumble it into a large bowl. Add the frosting and mix it all together with your hands (it’s way easier) until thoroughly combined.

Roll your “cake” into 1″ balls and place them on a cookie sheet. One cake mix should make anywhere between 50-70 balls, depending on how large you make them. Once rolled, place your balls in the fridge for at least two hours to chill.

Melt your candy coating per directions on the packaging, and remove a few of your cake balls from the fridge. Dip the end of a lollipop stick in the chocolate and insert that end into the flat bottom of a cake ball. Gently dip your cake pop in the melted chocolate to coat, tapping off any excess. Immediately decorate with sprinkles or other candies. Use a styrofoam block with holes poked in it to dry your pops.

Repeat until you’re all done! πŸ™‚ I packaged mine in clear candy bags and secured them with twist ties.

A fan! πŸ™‚
