Here is a fun Halloween treat to make for your family, school class parties, or your neighborhood trick-or-treaters. Cake Pops decorated as Candy Corn!
Halloween Candy Corn Cake Pops
What you will need:
white cake – Save yourself some time and just use a box cake mix.
icing – Also store bought.
cake pop sticks
chocolate melts – in colors of orange, extra white, and yellow
This is when most people mess up cake pops. You want to only put a few tablespoons of icing. The cake is already moist and you are only adding the icing to make it a little sticky. Also, get your hands in there! Using a spoon to mix is just not going to get the job done right.
One you have the cake and icing mixed well. Shape the cake into the same shape as candy corn. Insert the sticks into each cake. Lay them on a cookie sheet and place in the frig for about an hour or two.
Now, you can us a double boiler or microwave the melts. My trick is to use a coffee cup in boiling water. Please note this is not recommended and I am not liable if you burn yourself doing this or injure yourself in any way. It is just my little trick. 🙂 I don’t keep it on the stove. Once the melts are melted I remove the pot from the stove but, the water keeps the melts workable.
Hehe, I am not showing you the mess I made doing this!! It was a trial and error putting the white on the sticks. First, I thought I would dip it all the way down. Uhmmm, NO! One worked the second on I tried broke off into my cup. lol So, I would recommend painting the chocolate on. Stick then into the foam board with foil wrapped around to allow to dry.
Once the white has dried you can move forward using orange.
Really don’t worry about make it look smooth.
Once the orange has dried you can easily dip the yellow tips.
There you have them! Halloween Candy Corn Cake Pops!
If you would like to pass them out or need them for a school event. Use treat bags to cover and wrap a bow on.
