Halloween Cake Pops
Decorative and cute, our Halloween Cake Pops are very simple to make, only requiring a little legwork for the decorating. The pops are made out of one prepared box of cake mix combined with some store-bought frosting. This mixture is then rolled into balls and set in the refrigerator before being submerged in different colored candy melts.You can use any flavored cake and frosting that sounds appealing, just be sure to use the right amounts called for in the recipe. The candy melts that coat the cake pops are a better alternative to chocolate because they are more stable and less likely to seize up. They also add a smooth coating of color which is an important base for any delicate decorating. White chocolate, a simple royal icing, and black nonpareil sprinkles are all that’s needed to decorate the smooth surfaces of these three different Halloween cake pops—but whether you pick up the mummy, the pumpkin, or the spider web cake pop, you can count on them being equally delicious and adorable.
Candy melts can be found at any crafts store in the decorative baking section. Also, it’s important that the melted candy melts be only slightly warmer than the cake balls when they are submerged, so make sure the cake pops are at room temperature and that the melted candy melts are not hot at this point in the process.
