4th of july cake pops

With the 4th of July tomorrow I thought it would be fun to do a treat to go along with such a fun day!  Cake Pops are so fun and easy to make and you dont feel as guilty eating one because its not a whole piece of cake!  If you eat 10 then you may have eaten a whole piece of cake!  But I say go for it!  Calories dont count on holidays!  The Cake Pops I made in the pictures below were done with homemade cake and homemade frosting.  A little more work, so I am going to give you a easier recipe so you can make these for tomorrow.

4th of July Cake Pops

1 box cake mix (any flavor)
1 can frosting (any flavor)
2 bags white chocolate chips
sucker sticks

1. Make cake according to box. Let cool.

2. Once cake is cool, brake it up into pieces and put it in your mixer.

3. Add frosting to cake 1 Tbsp at a time.  You only need enough to bind the cake together to form into balls.  Once all is mixed start rolling into 1 inch sized balls.  Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Once done, stick sucker sticks into balls about 3/4 way down.  Place in fridge for about 1 hour.

4. Melt chocolate chips in microwave stirring every 30 seconds. You can add 1 tbsp vegetable oil to help prevent chocolate from burning.  Once all melted take cake pops out of fridge and being to dip cake pops into chocolate, place back onto parchment paper.  If you notice cake pops sliding as you dip, just put them back in the fridge for a longer time to set up.  Once all dipped place back in fridge for about 1 hour.

5. Take out of fridge and do a second coat of chocolate.

6. Add some sprinkles after each time you dip a cake pop for the second time.  If you wait till the end the chocolate will have hardened.  In the pictures I did add a little chocolate on top but just for decoration.  Leaving them white with sprinkles will be just as cute.  Hope everyone has a safe, fun 4th of July!!!
