Cake Pops Without The Sticks? Incredible!!!

I thought these little treats would be fun to take to my party on the 4th of July. They may not look real pretty, but BOY ARE THEY DELICIOUS! And easy to make, too. Chocolate cake with a hard chocolate mint shell....mmmmm.

Start by making your favorite kind of cake (in this case, I just used a boxed chocolate cake mix). Just follow the directions on the box and bake it. After it cools, crumble it up into a bowl. Stir in some frosting so that the cake crumbs will form into balls. One cake made about 55 (quarter-sized) balls.

Now here's the fun part. After I had all the balls rolled and onto a cookie sheet, I started to melt my candy melts. I bought my chocolate mint candy melts at Hobby Lobby. You can also buy them at Michael's or Gygi's or anywhere else that sells candy making supplies.

To melt the candy melts, just put them in a dish in the microwave. Stir them every 30 seconds until they are melted and smooth. Then send the little cake balls for a swim. I dipped them and put them on waxed paper until they hardened. Oh, and I added a few stars for fun.

For detailed instructions on how to make Cake Pops with the sucker sticks, check out www.bakerella.com . She has some really cute 4th of July cake pops on there.

Have a great 4th of July everyone!!!
