Turkey Cake Pops

You'll need:

  • Chocolate Cake, prepared (I used ½ of a 9×13 devils food box cake)Chocolate
  • Frosting (amount depends on moistness of cake. I used two big spoonfuls.
  • 2 boxes Bakers's premium Milk Chocolate
  • Sugar Babies candy
  • Candy Corn
  • Red and orange flat candy (sprinkles) 
  • Styrofoam base to serve
  • Airtight tupperware to store/freeze

    1. Add cake to a large bowl.
    2. Crumble until it resembles fine crumbs
    3. Add in frosting a little bit at a time until cake is moist and can hold a ball shape, yet still slightly crumbly.
    4. Use your hands to incorporate the frosting into the cake crumbs.
    5. Use a mini ice cream scoop and scoop out two balls of cake mixture.
    6. Roll the mixture into a tight ball and place on a plate.
    7. Repeat until all the cake mixture has been rolled into balls.
    8. Melt 2-4 ounces of white chocolate in the microwave.
    9. Dip the tip of the cake pop sticks into the white chocolate and insert into the cake balls about half-way.
    10. Freeze for about 20 minutes.
    11. Meanwhile prepare all of your decorating supplies.
    12. Melt the remaining chocolate in a large cup. Make sure you have enough chocolate to completely submerge the cake ball.
    13. Remove cake balls from freezer.
    14. Dip cake balls carefully into the chocolate until covered.
    15. Let the excess chocolate drip off. Swirl and tap gently if needed.
    16. Add the 4 candy corn feathers to back, and the sugar baby nose. Lastly, add red heart sprinkles, and orange part, while the chocolate is still wet. It will harden quickly.
    17. Stick the decorated cake pop into a styrofoam block to finish setting.
    18. Place into the freezer to speed up setting time.
    19. Store in a single layer, in an airtight container.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
