Cake Pops

Surely this is more of just an idea than an actual recipe, but the possibilities are endless....and I warn you they are VERY addictive. This army of snowmen look a little angry here, but they pleased Austin's entire class and tonight I find myself making more. I also bought an edible marker to put smiles on they're not so scary. Pretzel arms or some kind of a hat might be a nice touch too. These were the only three left standing....until Phil got home.
Soni didn't want snowmen for her class party, she is all about the cupcake. I'm not so sure if they look like cupcakes, but they were the first treat gone from the table....yes, my competitive little self was watching to see.

What's in these things anyway?

Cake mix and frosting of your choice.
Candy melts or chocolate.
Whatever decorations you need to finish the effect.

Bake the cake according to directions. Let it cool enough that your not burning your hands when you crumble it all to tiny pieces in a large bowel. Mix in about 2/3 of your container of frosting so that it is a nice gooey consistency.

Roll into balls. Put a dab of melted candy on the end of your stick and insert into your ball. If your making the snowmen repeat the process for the second ball stopping just short of going all the way through.

Freeze for an hour or two, then dip in candy melts or chocolate.
Add extras immediately as it hardens pretty fast.

Google cake balls for more ideas. They range from silly to very fancy, and made from just about any combination of cake and frosting. Limited only by your imagination.

This has to be some kind of sin right?
