Cake Pops, Yummy and Beautiful.

Esther Gyan


I made these for my son. We called it " A bugs life" The recipe for the cake pop is below. I covered it with modeling chocolate and the recipe is also added. The design itself was time consuming and I couldn't photograph it step by step. I plan on doing that soon and will re-post the pictures here. There were yummy. My son came up with the idea of staging it for the photograph so we printed grass and the sun and taped it to the background. Are they not cute?

45 Min


4 c
chocolate cake leftovers or cupcakes
1/2 c
chocolate candy melts


candy melts
2 Tbsp
light corn syrup

Directions Step-By-Step

Melt 1/2 cup Chocolate Candy melts in a microwave for 3 minutes at minute intervals, stir in between every minute to make sure heat is distributed evenly until it melts completely. Be careful not to overheat, candy melts will turn lumpy if you over heat and it will be ruined.
Crumble chocolate cake well and stir in melted chocolate candy until its sticky.
Now the fun part: The children will enjoy doing this.
With your hand, roll around 2 tablespoonful of the mixture to form a ball. Put them on trays and refrigerate.
For the Modeling Chocolate, Melt the chocolate candy as I indicated in the first step, stir in the corn syrup. It will become very thick, almost like dough. Pour it into a bowl with a tight lid and put in the fridge for about an hour. It may look a little gritty or lumpy, don't worry. After one hour take it out and knead it for a few minutes and you have a roll-able chocolate dough.
Take out your cake pops. Lightly brush some syrup on them and then roll out your chocolate though and get creative covering your pops
