So, cake pops started gaining popularity from this blog, Bakerella. I definitely did not make this recipe up, and to be honest, I more call it "directions" not a "recipe" since it involves store bought mixes.
- Make a cake mix according to the directions. (I used rainbow chip--classic!)
- Bake cake and let completely cool.
- Break up cake into your mixer. Mix in on low speed a can of frosting. (I used rainbow chip again).
- When everything is incorporated, you have a pasty mix. Scoop the mix up into little balls (I used by small cookie scoop and then hand rolled them after they were chilled) and put on a cookie sheet. Put in freezer until chilled, or until ready to dip.
- Dip balls (by using spoon or lollipop sticks) into melted chocolate or candy melts.
- Let harden up in freezer or fridge.
