I love getting together with family! there is always lots of food to eat at these gatherings and I pig-out like crazy (more then I should).
For Saturday I made Christmas cake pops, they were delicious and a great treat for the kids, they loved them!
These are simple to make but I had some help making them from Nikki (my sister), I also got the recipe from her (she made them a few weeks ago at my house with the little guy).
I got the idea to stick a candy cane in them (as the stick) from seeing it done on pinterest.
Christmas Cake Pops Recipe
1 pkg- Presidents Choice Red Velvet cake (follow instructions on pkg)
11/2 cups- Butter cream icing or cream cheese icing
Compound Chocolate for dipping (any colours you would like, I used white, red and green)
Approximately 40 Small candy canes (be careful not to break them)
Follow directions on package of ready-made cake mix....
Bake according to package.
When it is done baking crumble the cake and let cool for about 15 min.
Put cake in a large bowl and add butter cream icing, mix well. Roll cake into 1 inch balls.
Melt chocolate on low heat, stir constantly so it doesn't burn. Once all the chunks are melted let it sit for 2-3 minutes so you can get a thick coating of chocolate. Dip cake balls into melted chocolate.
To add sprinkled chocolate to the top just melt a second and third colour and splatter it on with a spatula or spoon.
Place in freezer for 15 min or until chocolate has hardened.
To insert candy canes use a toothpick to make a hole (try not to crack the chocolate) once the hole is big enough insert the candy cane.
