Halloween themed cake pops

By Bret Walts

The tastiest treat in town, cake pops! You can do all kind of things with cake pops. In this case my mother made them to look like pumpkins, witches, ghosts and black cats.

Ingredients needed for Halloween Cake Pops:

1 box of cake mix (prepared according to package directions)

1/2 can of frosting

3 bags of candy melts

Bag of 8 inch lollipop sticks

Chocolate twizzlers

Chocholate chips

Sprinkles

Candy Writer (to draw faces)

Oreos

Dark chocolate kisses

Directions:

Bake a cake (can be any flavor your heart desires)

After the cake is baked, crumble the cake as much as possible.

After crumbling the cake, add a half a can of icing to the crumbled cake

After that roll the cake mixture into small balls

After rolling about 35 cake balls put them in the freezer for 20 minutes (or refrigerator for 2 hours)

Melt 1 bag of candy melts

Dip end of lollipop stick into melts and stick 1/2 way into a cake ball

Let harden in freezer for 5 minutes

Dip entire cake ball into melts to cover the cake mixture
