I have always thought cake pops were super cute and fun, but have always been kind of grossed out by the thought of smashing cake into little balls. I know most cakes now are made in cake pop pans, but for some reason can't get over the thought.
I wanted to make easy cake pops for my daughter's birthday, but didn't want to buy a pan, roll the cake into balls (YUCK!) or spend a ton of time making them. Here is a quick idea to create fun cake pops in 2 simple steps using simple "Ding Dong" like cakes.
1. After placing your cakes on your choice of wax paper or a cooling rack, drizzle them with your choice of colored chocolate. I melted the chocolate in plastic bags and simply cut a corner off. It was so easy with very little mess.
2. Next give your cake a stick and you are ready to serve them however you choose.
I wrapped them individually for my daughter to pass out for her birthday treat at school. They were a huge hit!
