Ted Allen's Cake Pops

Aired December 26, 2011

1 package cake mix or store-bought prepared cake
1 16-ounce container prepared chocolate frosting
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
Sucker sticks and small skewers
White chocolate chips, melted, optional
Pink salt, Colored sugar, sprinkles, candy balls, or any of your favorite decorating candy, optional


Prepare cake according to package directions. Crumble into a bowl while still warm. If using day-old cake or cupcakes, pulse cake in food processor until it crumbles. Stir in frosting until well-mixed. Chill mixture for a couple of hours in the refrigerator.


Remove from refrigerator and, using a small scoop, form into balls. Push a skewer into each ball. Place on parchment paper and refrigerate for about an hour, or until firm.


Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave. Working in small batches, dip the cake pops in the melted chocolate and sprinkle with a little pink salt and decorating candy. Or, drizzle the cake ball with the white chocolate for decoration.
