Chocolate Cupcake Pops

My talented friend, Jenny, made the most delicious and adorable treats for our Circle's bake sale, and I couldn't wait to make them for the teachers at my daughter's school. They're called Cupcake Pops and they are super easy to make. Here are the directions:
Bake a cake of any flavor (I used Devil's Food) according to package directions in a 9x13 pan and cool - break up cake into small pieces and put into a large mixing bowl - add a can of frosting (I used Milk Chocolate) to the cake pieces and mix thoroughly - scoop out using a small ice cream scoop and paper on wax paper-lined baking sheet - insert sticks into balls and freeze till firm - melt Wilton candy melts in the microwave and carefully dip frozen balls until completely covered - place back on wax paper-lined tray and allow to harden.

The colorful sticks I used are from Wilton and so are the tiny plastic bags I wrapped the pops in. The Wilton candy melts come in a variety of colors, so you could make these for any occasion or holiday. Jenny has made them using smaller wooden sticks and they look like rattles for a baby shower!! How cute is that?!?!? Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!
