Raise your hand if you've never had a cake pop. C'mon, don't be ashamed. Put your hands down. You should be VERY ashamed, because cake pops are delicious and yummy and you. are. missing. out!

Please note: I am using the terms 'cake pop' and 'truffles' interchangeably.  I am referring to the same thing :)

You know that feeling of baking addiction? Like, you feel like you just *hafta* bake something?

That was me today. So I decided to try out Strawberry Cake Pops.

It's not often (cough, cough) that I post a recipe on here, but today I decided it would be neat. This recipe is very delicious, very sweet, and very beautiful.

The first part of this post is just gonna be me talking about these lovely little balls. I know no one likes to be told what to do and what not to do, but if you want these cake pops to be successful and not a disaster, you need to seriously listen up, because there are some crucial things you must keep in mind:

We start with cake already pre-made. By this, I’m talking about strawberry cake. You can use a mix {like Duncan-Hines or Betty Crocker}, or simply make your own.

Also, regarding the part about the frosting/icing: I said "about 3/4 cup" as this part takes some eyeballing. If it's too crumby, add more. If it's too moist, add less. (How can you add less once you've already put it in? :P Lol!)

Let’s say you don’t like “pops” but you want “truffles”. Easy! Simply neglect to put the stick in them, and you’ve got little truffles. I love it.

The cake pops are stealing the spotlight and now it’s time for you to make them. Enough of my chatter, now it’s time to get baking! (What more is there to say?)


Sweet Strawberry Cake Truffles


Time: 45 minutes | Ingredients Necessary: 3 | Skill Level: Easy-Medium

Ingredients.

Frosting, about 3/4 cup

Half of a strawberry cake (use cake mix if you need to :P)

White chocolate wafers, about 3/4 cup

Directions.

{1} First, crumble your cake into millions of pieces using your [clean] hands or a [clean] fork.

{2} Add in your frosting, a tablespoon at a time, and stir until it's moist and can form a nice ball without crumbling or melting.

{3} Roll the batter into smooth and small balls, like you would roll cookies. Don't flatten them.

{4} Put them on a baking sheet and freeze for 30 minutes. Yes, I said freeze.

Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate safely in the microwave (in 30 second increments so as not to burn) or on stovetop.

{5} Take out the cake pops and insert a stick into them. You can use a popsicle or candy stick. Then dip them into the chocolate.

{6} Let them freeze a bit longer, if you can wait, or let them dry for just a few minutes. Once the chocolate’s hardened, they are all yours! (But please share some too!!)

And that’s all there is to it. Could this be any easier? Enjoy.
