Cakepops for halloween

To watch this Video-Recipe please click HERE!!

Hi everyone, today's video is a super easy and fun idea for Halloween. It does take sometime to prepare so I recommend you make these the day before your Halloween party.

Makes: 24
Ingredients:

  • 1 box Cake Mix (any flavor and brand you like) + Ingredients to prepare the cake
  • ¼-½ cup frosting (any flavor and brand you like)
  • lollipops sticks

For Decorating:
  • 12oz White Chocolate (melted)
  • 4-6oz Dark Chocolate (melted)

Prepare and bake the cake according to the instructions on the package. Let it cool completely and then crumble until you get the texture of very fine crumbs.

Heat up the frosting in the microwave for about 30 seconds or so, just until it softens a little bit. Add about ¼ cup of frosting to the cake crumbs, and mix well, until everything is incorporated.

Grab about 1½ tablespoons of the cake mixture and roll it into a ball with your hands, if the cake-balls has any large cracks or its crumbling, your cake mixture its too dry, so add a little more frosting.  You want the cake mixture to be soft and very moist.  Add as much frosting as you need to.

Once the cake mixture has the consistency that you want (soft and moist), now start making your cake-pop, you can make them any size you want.

Now melt about 2-3 tablespoons of chocolate and dip the lollipops stick in the melted chocolate,  you just want to cover the tip of the stick with the melted chocolate, so just dip about 1½ or 2 inches of the stick and after that, insert the stick right into the center of the cake-pop. The melted chocolate on the stick will act as glue and will keep the cake-pop right in place.  Once your cake-pops have the stick on them, place them in the refrigerator for 1 hour or until they are cold and firm.

After an hour or so, you can decorate your cake-pops. Melt the white chocolate. (follow the instructions on the package.  (I melted mine in the microwave.)

Dip the cake-balls into the melted white chocolate until well covered with it. Let the excess chocolate drip off,  and keep on repeating this step until all your cake pops are covered with the melted chocolate.

Use the melted dark chocolate to draw a spooky face on your cake pops and that's about it.
Decorate them any way you want and have fun!  After you are done, place them back in the refrigerator for 30 minutes then enjoy!
