Cake pops

This idea is from the bakerella blog. It is a little messy but easy and cute. So, the basic idea is this:

*Make a packaged cake mix (red velvet is fun for Valentine's Day) according to the box instructions.
*Let it cool completely.
*Crumble the entire cake into a large bowl and mix with a whole canister of frosting (Cream Cheese is best, but anything works).
*Shape mixture into balls (or hearts) and freeze for an hour or so. You can add candy sticks to make them into pops or just leave them like this for a more truffle like treat.
*Right before you take the cake shapes out of the freezer, melt some candy melts. (You can get these at craft stores. i even saw them at WalMart.)
*Cover each cake ball in melted candy coating and pop in the fridge to harden the candy.

So, there are a million ways to make these about the cutest thing you have ever seen. Check out the Halloween ones for proof of this. Over and out!
