Cake Pops Yum!

For several years I've been making a fabulous dessert treat; I make it whenever I host or attend a party. We gave them a rather colorful title due to their amazing deliciousness. When I had a baby we decided, being the responsible parents we are, to clean up the title and call them simply Oreo Balls. I recently came across a recipe that was very similar. The next day I heard mention of them on an episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I think I even saw one of the housewives eat one! I just had to try this recipe to see if their flavor could match or surpass my sweet treat, the Oreo Ball. So, without further ado, let me introduce you to, the Cake Pop!

1 box of white cake mix--plus ingredients to prepare cake according to box instructions
1 container of white frosting
1 bag of melting chocolate discs (you can find these at craft stores)
Lollipop sticks (optional)

1. Prepare the cake according to the box directions. Let cool completely.

2. Use your hands to crumble the cake into a bowl.

3. Mix in almost an entire container of white frosting.

4. Roll the mixture into small balls about 1.5 inches in diameter. Then place the balls on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper.

5. Chill in the refrigerator or freezer for several hours to set the balls.

6. Melt the candy melts according to the instructions on the bag.

7. You can dip the cake into the chocolate using a spoon or fork and then gently shake the excess off if you want to make little cake balls or you can insert sticks if you want to make cake pops. If you are making the pops, dip the stick into the melted candy first and then insert into cake ball. Let that candy harden to set the stick in the ball, then dip  entire ball into candy. Place on waxed paper to let the candy 

8. Yum yum yum!

  1. These things are crazy delicious. And I'm sad that you watched Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
