A box arrived yesterday from Auntie Lori with homemade and freshly made cake pops.
Cake pops are trendy.
Cake pops are divine.
Cake pops are on the prairie now.
Anika calls them “guckers” like suckers. But they are so much more than a lollipop sucker. They are moist, rich vanilla cake with white chocolate coating.
I have never tasted anything so good in such a bit sized pop. That is a huge statement. I can’t stop eating them. Today started off with me eating two of them and I didn’t have my first cup of coffee gone yet.
To curb my eating I am encouraging the kids to eat more of them, less for me then. As you can see they aren’t putting up much of a fight that their mother is insisting they eat more cake pops.
Now if you need a Valentine’s treat to make this weekend there are great “how to make cake pops” tutorials on blogs.
Start with the original “founder” of cake balls and cake pops, Bakerella and then venture over to my kindred spirit whose new novel I am reading this weekend Pioneer Woman for another excellent photo rich tutorial on how to make cake pops. In case you still need more help and inspiration, find a cake pops recipe resource in a Home Hack tutorial on TheKitchn.
Now get to it and let me know if do venture into making Valentine’s cake pops. I’ll be indulging in ours while you bake and dip away.
If you aren’t going to make cake pops for Valentine’s for your sweetheart, do you have another sweet treat you have made? I received a recipe yesterday via a daily Food Network email for Almost Famous Chocolate Molten Cake. It would be a hit at our house and I’m planning on making it tomorrow once we have finished off all the cake pops!
