Cake Pops...Yum!

Since cake pops are all the rage I thought I'd give them a try. I found them quite easy to make, just give yourself some time...not a quick baking project. Boy were they delicious though!
You'll need...
1 boxed cake mix (or you can make it from scratch!
1 can of frosting
melting chocolate (I used Wilton chocolate and vanilla)
wax paper
lollipop sticks

How to...
1.Bake the cake according to directions on box (or recipe)
2.Once the cake is cooled completely crumble in a large bowl
3. Mix in the can of frosting really good...I didn't quite use the whole can
4. Roll the cake into balls
5. Place the balls onto a cookie sheet or plate covered with wax paper. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes or until firm (you don't want them to freeze) then keep them in the fridge until you are ready to work with them.
6. Melt the chocolate according to directions
7. Dip one end of a lollipop stick in the melted chocolate and insert it into the cake ball, let dry for a couple minutes
8. Roll the cake ball into the melted chocolate and decorate with sprinkles
9. Let harden for a bit
10. Enjoy!!!
