Sprinkle Cake Pops

I’ve never met a single bored sole that didn’t enjoy a festive cake pop during the second hour of watching an expectant mother open baby gifts at her shower.

Sprinkle Cake Pops
makes 12

What you need:
1 single layer of a 9″ prepared cake (I used this recipe)
Homemade vanilla buttercream frosting (I used this recipe)
1 large bag white candy melts
12 cake pop sticks/sucker sticks

What to do:
1. Line a small baking sheet (one that will fit in your freezer) with wax paper and set aside.
2. In a large bowl add the cooled cake and break apart until it resembles fine crumbs
3. Using your hands (I’ve found it’s the best way), mix in frosting (a LITTLE at a time) until the mixture can JUST hold together.
4. Use a mini scoop to scoop out the cake mixture. Roll into a ball. Place ball on the prepared baking sheet. Continue until all the cake mixture is used.
5. Melt 1/3 cup of the candy melt in the microwave.
6. Working quickly, dip the tip of a cake pop stick into the melted candy and insert into the center of a cake ball (about halfway in). Repeat with remaining cake balls and sticks.
7. Freeze for 30 minutes.
8. Place all your sprinkles in small dishes so you are ready for decorating!
9. Have a piece of styrofoam or a card board box turned upside down at the ready to hold your finished cake pops while they dry.
10. Melt the remaining candy melt in a deep bowl (you’ll want it deep enough to submerge the cake ball).
11. Working one at a time, hold the cake pop stick and dip a chilled cake pop into the candy melt until covered. Let the excess drip off by swirling the pop.
12. Decorate with #libbiesprinkles while the candy is still wet.
13. Poke a hole in the styrofoam or box and place the bottom of the cake pop stick in it to hold the cake pop upright.
14. Allow to dry!
15. Once dry, you can cover with clear plastic bags and tie with a ribbon or display in glasses filled with sprinkles for a fun dessert table!
Pro Tips: 
•YES, you could use a store bought cake mix and store bought frosting. It’s not my thing, but you do you.
•Add food coloring to the candy melt before dipping.
•Mix and match your cake and frosting. There is no wrong combination. If you like it as a cake then you will like it as a cake pop!
