You can thank me later, but below is a quick and easy way to make cake pops. You will ask yourself, "Why didn't I ever think of that!?"
- Donut holes
- Candy melts
- Lollipop sticks
Step 1: Melt the candy melts according to the directions on the package. Optional - you can add 1 teaspoon of shortening (such as Crisco) to keep the candy melts from hardening too quickly.
Step 2: Dip the end of the lollipop sticks into the candy melts (about 1"). Then insert the candy coated lollipop stick into the donut holes. This acts as a glue to adhere the donut hole to the stick.
Step 3: Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to harden the candy melt.
Step 4: Dip the donut hole into the candy melts until the outside is fully coated.
Step 5: Top with sprinkles while the candy melts are still wet.
Step 6: Place the opposite end of the lollipop stick into a piece of cardboard or styrofoam in order for the cake pops to dry. This also allows the any excess candy melts to drip off the cake pop.
Not only is this easy but you can do about 50 cake pops in under and hour! Enjoy!
