Bite size lovin'


This past weekend I made cake pops. Holy yum. I've tried them at a few different places and when I found out I could make them myself I was all over it.  I never knew what made these little gems so great, but I'll give you a hint: FROSTING (ok, I can 't keep a secret).

Surprisingly, these little balls of fun are SUPER easy to make.

Ingredients needed: 
Cake mix (and the things that go along with making a cake)
Frosting
Decorations, if you like

Extras:
Sticks for the 'pops'
Something to stick the 'pops' in so they stand up-right (if you'd like)

So how do you do it you ask? Well, your wish is my command:

Now listen closely...

1. Bake cake and let cool
2. Break cake up into crumbles with your hands (WOOOO HOO)
3. Add half a can of frosting to the crumbles and mix
4. Take mixture and roll into balls
5. Put mixture in the freezer for 30 minutes
6. Take the cake balls out of the freezer and insert sticks
7. Frost and decorate

Yup, that is it. For you visual people:

Pick decorations

 Take the cake and insert it onto the stick

 Frost and decorate

Everyone I gave these to really loved them.  They are so moist (for good reason) and are not only the right portion if you eat 3 of them, but they are super fun.  Have you ever tried them before?  If not I suggest trying them out! I'm sure you will love them :) 

Happy Hump Day :-D
