Living in Utah, which HAS to be the craftiest place put upon the earth, I've seen these done a million and two ways. People are so creative it's borderline nauseous. Or maybe I'm jealous. Who can tell?
Anyway, for those of you who don't have a lot of time to check around, I'll show you the basic recipe. These make nice individually wrapped snacks, neighbor gifts, or if you're the husband, dessert. Remember, if you are looking for gorgeous, amazing cakes on a stick, type "cake pops" into Google Images. Then, try to refrain from laughing at my orphan treats. While giggling though, remember that they all taste fantastic once they're stuffed in your face. One at a time, friends. That is advice from experience :)
-Cake Mix, any flavor.
-1 can of pre-made frosting
-Oil and water (as directed on cake box)
-Sucker sticks (baking section of any craft store. I found mine at Michaels.)
-Meltable candy discs or chocolate bark.
-sprinkles, anything you'd decorate cookies or cupcakes with :)
-Styrofoam block/ box with pre-stabbed holes (to stick cake pops in when drying)
-cake pan, mixing bowl, cookie sheet, wax paper
1. Bake cake according to directions on box. Let cool completely.
5. Melt chocolate bark or candy discs according to package in the microwave.
6. Dip one end of sucker stick into the bark and then into a cake ball. You may want to only take out a few from the fridge at a time. Trust me, the cake works so much better cold...
Happy Tuesday, friends :)
