Halloween Cake Pops
- Take the chocolate cake and break it into pieces in the mixing bowl. Now, for the interesting part, wear the plastic gloves and mush the cake with your hands. Your kids will love doing this!
- Whizz the Oreos into a blender and mix with the cake. Now take whatever frosting you’ve chosen and start mixing it into the cake, a little at a time until the cake starts to resemble a dough. Don’t put it all in at once, your cake pops won’t freeze if the mixture is too soft and mushy.
- Test the dough by squeezing a little bit of the mixture in your palms, it should be crumbly and pliable and not soggy at all!
- Roll the cake mixture into walnut size balls. You can make any shape you want, if you want to make Frankenstein cake pops, roll them into a cylindrical shape.
- Dip the lollipop sticks or wooden skewers into the melted chocolate and insert them into the cake pops. If it breaks a little, just smoothen it again. Let them chill for 2 hours in the fridge or freeze for about 15-20 minutes. Let them warm up for about a minute or two after taking them out.
- Now for the best part: decorating! Dip the pops in melted chocolate and let it set before you start decorating. You can add little chocolate strands and make spider cake pops. Dip them in white chocolate and use red and black edible pens to draw veins and a pupil to make eyeball cake pops. Similarly, you can use the black pens to make skeleton cake pops or color the chocolate orange using edible colors and make pumpkin cake pops. The possibilities are endless and so is the fun. So, only one thing is left now; to have fun!
