My daughter is a huge fan of time with mommy in the kitchen. One of her most requested items to make are cake pops. Darn you Starbucks for taking this idea and making it a national phenomenon. With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, we thought we could get a little festive with a white with sprinkles mix. Cute hua? Hope you enjoy!
St. Patrick’s Day Cake Pops
Ingredients and Materials:
- 1 Boxed cake mix in your choice of flavor
- 1 Bag of Wilton white candy melts
- 1 Container of Wilton St. Patrick’s day sprinkles
- Candy Pop sticks
- Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker
- Deep bowl
- Styrofoam block to stick Cake Pops in to dry
Step 1: Prepare your cake mix batter according to the directions on the package and pour into the bottle that is included with the Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker.
Step 2: Plug in your Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker and allow it to preheat for a few minutes.
Step 3: Open the cake pop maker lid and squeeze about 1 tablespoon of batter into each cake pop cups. Do not overfill, but be sure to fill each cup enough, or your cake pops will have holes in the side.
Step 4: Close the cake pop maker lid and rotate it 180 degrees.
Step 5: Let cake pops cook for 3-4 minutes, and then rotate the cake pop maker back 180 degrees to the starting point, and lift the lid.
Step 6: Use the included fork and remove the cake pops from the machine. Set them on the included racks to cool down.
Step 7: Place your bag of white candy melts into a bowl and put it in the microwave for one minute and then stir. Continue microwaving and stirring at 30 second intervals until the candy is completely melted.
Step 8: Place a cake pop stick into each of your cake pops, be sure not to stick it too far in or it will go through the top.
Step 9: Hold a cake pop over the bowl of candy melts and use a spoon to drizzle candy over each part of the cake pop. Gently shake the excess candy melts off the cake pop over the bowl and place it in a Styrofoam block to dry a little.
Step 10: Before the cake pops have dried completely, hold them over a plate and sprinkle on the Wilton St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles. Place back on the Styrofoam block to finish drying.
Step 11: Remove cake pops from Styrofoam block and place in a container for storage, or wrap in small candy bags to give as gifts.
