These pops couldn't be easier to make and they require no baking! I think they turned out super cute.
Bubba and the boys did a quality control check for me and said they tasted great. They really liked the chocolate on the outside. They reminded them of a ding dong cake. These would be perfect for a birthday party, football team party and, most of all, tailgating!
