Taste Buds: Cake Popem’s


These are decedent, they are sweet, and they are oh so amazingly awesome; doughy cake on the inside and crunchy chocolate on the outside with so many different ways to mix and match. Seriously pick any combination of cake, frosting and chocolate that sound good to you and go to town.

This batch of Cake Popem’s are Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting dipped in Milk Chocolate and drizzled with White Chocolate. Others you could try would be Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Frosting dipped in white chocolate with rainbow sprinkles. Or maybe you are Chocolate Cake with Triple Chocolate Fudge Frosting dipped in Dark Chocolate scattered with almond slivers kind of girl. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!

Seriously we are fighting over them here at the house, and yes don’t worry I hid some too… for the baby of course.

1 box cake mix
1 can of frosting
2 bars of melting chocolate (not semi sweet)
sprinkles, nuts or other melting chocolate optional for decorating

1. Make cake per instructions on the cake box in a 13x9 or similarly sized cake pan.
2. Remove the cake from oven and while it is still warm break it up and put it in a large mixing bowl. Add the can of frosting and blend well into a gooey mush.
3. Cover bowl in saran wrap and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
4. Roll dough in similarly sized balls. I like to use a spoon to make sure I am scooping out a consistent amount of batter each time.
5. Place balls on wax covered baking sheet and freeze for 2 hours.
6. Remove balls from the freezer, melt chocolate and dip balls until fully covered using a fork. Set covered balls about an inch apart on a wax covered baking sheet. Refrigerate for one hour before serving.
OPTIONAL – Before the last refrigerator while the chocolate is still wet either sprinkle with sprinkles or crushed nuts.
OPTIONAL – Before serving drizzle with another color of chocolate.

Can make 48-60ish popems based on how large you roll your balls
