Ice Cream Cone Cake Pops

Recently my friend and fellow blogger, Julie  at Sugar & Bows, needed an extra hand with a baby shower she was putting together. One of the items on the menu was the adorable ice cream cone cake pops. An easy, yet time intensive treat, the cake pops are always a hit. I was more than happy to lend a hand!

Since we are going to be moving soon and having a baby even sooner, I decided to do some baking to make some "thank you" treats for some of the individuals who have helped us along the way. So this week, I made ice cream cone cake pop treats for the babysitters at the YMCA where I drop my son while I get in the occasional workout, in order to say thank you for watching him.

In order to make these adorable treats you will need:

1 box of cake mix (chocolate, yellow, it's up to you)
1 container of frosting (again, any flavor will do)
2-3 bags of melting chocolates
1 box of mini ice cream cones

1. Make 13x9 inch cake according to box directions. Cool completely. Crumble cake into a large bowl.

2. Add the frosting to the crumbled cake and blend with a  hand mixer.

3. Use a small cookie scoop to make small balls of cake and push down gently into the ice cream cones.   Put them on a tray and cool in the freezer for about 15 minutes.

4. Melt the chocolates according to the instructions on the package. Then dip the "ice cream" into the chocolate. You can add sprinkles, mini m&m's, or other fun toppings. Just be sure to do it right away before the chocolate sets.  Before you add toppings you can also drizzle another color melting chocolate on top to look like to hot fudge. I had some peanut butter flavored ones which were delicious on top of the chocolate cake balls! Enjoy!

They don't look perfect, but that's ok because it looks more like melting ice cream with ooey, gooey topping!
