cakepopsIt always seems that leftover cake after a party is a common occurrence.  Let's use up that cake by making some cake pops.  But first you're going to need to cake.

Make some chocolate cake from this recipe here: Wagon Wheels.
This recipe has both the chocolate cake recipe in mix form and from scratch form, but also has an icing recipe that you'll need to put everything together.

And best of all.... if the cake is stale... that's ok too.

Along with the cake you'll also need enough icing to make the whole thing together and some decorations like:

melted dark chocolate, sprinkles, crushed nuts, melted or shaved white chocolate... the list goes on and on depending on what you're favourite is.

 

Directions:

Crumble cake into bowl until it looks like fine crumbs.  Use your freshly washed hands to combine icing slowly until the whole thing sticks together. 

Using an ice cream scoop (smaller is better) scoop and tightly pack into balls.  Place on a plate and dip pop sticks into melted chocolate and then insert into each cake pop.  Refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours.

When cool, dip each cake pop into melted chocolate and add your favourite toppings like sprinkles, crushed nuts, shaved chocolate...

Freeze or refrigerate again and when setup serve.  Cake pops will last up to a week in the fridge... but you'll likely sneak one every time you prepare dinner.
