This recipe for cake pops takes around 15 minutes to prepare. However, it requires several hours of refrigeration to set the cake and to hold it firmly on the stick. Nevertheless, you will find this recipe very simple to make. The ingredients for this recipe are the following:
- A pan of baked brownies
- Half a cup of chocolate frosting (from a mix)
- One pound of chocolate-flavored candy coating
- About 50 pieces of lollipop sticks
- A bag of candy sprinkles
Prepare a large baking sheet by putting wax paper of aluminum foil on it. Set aside, and make the batter. Use a large bowl and place the brownies inside it. With your hands, crumble the brownie. Make sure that you will come up with a smooth batter of brownies. Then, pour the chocolate frosting. Blend with the crumbled brownies, mixing well with your hands. The frosting will make the mixture quite moist, which would help in forming balls easily.
Then, place the ball-shaped tiny cakes in the baking sheet. Put in the freezer for about two hours. Meanwhile, place the candy coating in a microwave-safe container. Pop it inside the microwave and allow it to melt completely.
Stir the melted coating and dip the prepared balls of cake. Cover each piece completely. Next, roll the pops in a bowl with candy sprinkles. Be sure the coating is still wet so that the candy will stick well. You may also try putting coconut flakes or chopped nuts all over the pops. Insert lollipop stick on each of the cake balls. Refrigerate them once again and serve cold.
