1/3 cup frosting
Candy coating in various colors
Optional: EZ Thin candy thinner (can be bought at Michael’s) or shortening or canola oil
1. Bake cake as recipe directs. Let cool.
2. Crumble cake into fine crumbs. Add frosting and stir until well combined.
3. Scoop out cake balls, you can use a ice cream scoop, roll into a ball. You can make different shapes by manipulating the “dough”.
4. Melt your candy coating in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds. Dip the lollipop stick half in an inch into the candy coating and then insert the stick into the cake ball.
5. Mix in whatever “thinner” you are using (1 tablespoon of it) into the candy coating. Dip cake pops into the coating and immediately decorate if desired.
