Cake Pops...I'm addicted!

Yesterday was our monthly 4H meeting and it was our turn to bring snacks. I just can't take the easy way out and buy a pre-made snack, it just isn't me. So I had the brilliant idea to make Cake Pops, you see, Bakerella has my daughter and I inspired!

I began the process on Sunday evening, baking the cake and forming the balls. I made a strawberry cake and a vanilla cake, thinking the kids would love the strawberry.

Monday, I dipped the balls in white chocolate and good old milk chocolate! This was quite the process, I learned quickly though, you need to keep your balls on the smaller size!

My snacks were a hit, the strawberry cake balls dipped in milk chocolate almost taste like a truffle, and the vanilla cake dipped in white chocolate is much better than dipped in the milk chocolate! My two cakes made a total of 84 balls and I used 3 bags of chocolate wafers! Unbelievably...and I didn't even try...but each cake made the exact same number of balls!

These are so good...I can't keep my hands off of them, and it was so fun to see people's eyes light up when they bit into them last night!  Time consuming but worth it.

Thanks Bakerella for a great idea!
