Cookie Wednesday: Valentines Cakepops

Valentines Cakepops

I posted on facebook some pictures of the cakepops I made and had a few friends send me messages and texts asking how to make them, so I thought I would give the instructions today for Cookie Wednesday.

Instructions
Prepare one boxed cake mix as directed.  Allow to cool completely.
In large bowl, use hands to crumble cake until no large chunks remain. Add icing; mix with fingers (I just put it in my mixer and let it do the work mixing the cake and adding the frosting) until well combined.

Form mixture into cake balls. Chill in refrigerator at least 2 hours. Melt Candy Melts according to package directions. Dip sticks into melted Candy Melts and insert into cake balls; let set. Wait until candy is completely firm before dipping the pops completely in melted Candy Melts.

Makes 48 – 1 tablespoon sized cake ball pops (each about 1-1/4 in. diameter)
Makes 24 – 2 tablespoon sized cake ball pops (each about 1-1/2 in. diameter)
Makes 16 – 3 tablespoon sized cake ball pops (each about 1-3/4 in. diameter)

Tips
*  Make smaller cakeballs than you think you would like.  They get bigger as you go, especially if you dip them more than once.  
*  Only take a few out of the freezer at a time.  That way they stay hard and frozen and are much easier to work with.  


Here are some photos of a few valentines day cakepops I found online.  
What a fun gift to give for Valentines.
