There's always so many desserts at thanksgiving dinner. I really only want a bite of each one, rather than a whole piece. That's one of the reasons I like cake pops. I know there's super creative people out there that make amazingly decorated cake pops. And, I'm just not one of them. But, these are festive and easy to do.
There's 2 ways to make cake pops. The first way I learned, is here. The other way is to use the "Babycakes Cake Pop Maker". I decided to invest. We've had fun making cake pops and donut holes with this!
So, for these pops I used a pumpkin cake recipe. Honestly, I have no idea which one. I found it off the internet, so I'm not listing it because I don't even have it. Any cake recipe or cake mix will do. You squirt the batter in the little holes of the pop maker, close the lid, and 3 minutes later, they're done! And perfectly round. :-)
Then I dipped them in chocolate that I melted slowly on my stove top with about a tsp of vegetable oil. Once dipped I placed them in my handy dandy holder, that my husband made me (there is a holder that comes with the pop maker too), placed a candy corn on top, and put them in the fridge for setting.
Fun and Festive. Oh, and they taste good too!
