Valentine Cake Pops

   These pops are a great baking/craft activity for you and your children. Cake pops have been around for quite awhile now, and were made famous by Bakerella. The basic recipe only requires a box of your favorite cake mix, along with a tub of frosting. Dip them into some melted chocolate, and there you have it! Be sure to check out the Bakerella blog for tons of great cake pop ideas for any occasion! .The molds I used for these pops can be found at .

1 box of cake mix
1 tub of frosting
candy melts
lollipop sticks

Bake the cake according to the directions on the package.I baked mine in a one layer rectangular pan. Once the cake has cooled, crumble it up with your hands.Add the frosting. I would use about 3/4 of the frosting to start, add more if the dough is too stiff. Roll into balls, or use molds to make desired shapes.

   Place the cakes in the freezer for about 15 minutes while you melt the chocolate. Once the chocolate is melted and no longer hot, place one stick into each cake and dip into the chocolate,covering completely, and letting the excess drip off. Decorate with sprinkles or other edible decorations if desired.
