Bakers - Check Out This Blog!!

This is the neatest site. I found it while visiting MckMama and she made these cake balls on lollipop sticks for her children. She used white chocolate dyed various colors with food coloring. A little sprinkles for decorations and you have a really tastey snack. What I love about these is how versatile you can make these with food coloring, different sprinkles, a variety of cake mixes, etc. I am going to make some and I will post about the adventure, err I mean fun experience as I let my kids help! Check out this site. Let me know what you think about Cake Pops and Bakerella.
Cake Pops
1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
1 can cream cheese frosting (16 oz.)
1 package chocolate bark (regular or white chocolate)
wax paper

1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can cream cheese frosting. (It may be easier to use fingers to mix together, but be warned it will get messy.)
3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and lay on cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50. You can get even more if you use a mini ice cream scooper, but I like to hand roll them.)
4. Chill for several hours. (You can speed this up by putting in the freezer.)
5. Melt chocolate in microwave per directions on package.
6. Roll balls in chocolate and lay on wax paper until firm. (Use a spoon to dip and roll in chocolate and then tap off extra.)
7. Decorate with sprinkles if desired.

She recommends only melting a few pieces of chocolate bark at a time because it starts to cool and thicken. It’s easier to work with when it’s hot.
