Birthdays, Easter, baby showers, or just because they are cute and taste good! Got this recipe from a friend and I must share... enjoy! There are many ways to be creative when making these... there are dozens of different types of sprinkles, or you can use different colors of candy melts and no sprinkles if you wish. Almost everything can be bought at a crafts store.

Based on a 2,000 calorie diet

Directions

  1. Place about 1/4 cup of candy melts into a small microwave-safe bowl, and melt in the microwave at 40 percent power for 30 seconds; stir the candy coating, and continue to heat for 30 second-intervals until the coating is just warm and completely melted.
  2. Poke a hole halfway through a doughnut hole with a lollipop stick, then dip the end of the stick into the melted coating and reinsert into the hole. This holds the doughnut hole firmly on the stick. Stick the doughnut pop upright into a block of plastic foam, and set into refrigerator for 1 hour to firm up.
  3. When pops are firmly attached to their sticks, melt the remaining candy coating dots in a microwave-safe bowl on 40 percent power for 1 minute; stir, and melt for 30-second intervals until the coating is warm and smoothly melted. Dip the doughnut hole into the coating, covering it completely. Hold the dipped pop over a bowl, and sprinkle with colored candy sprinkles. Return the decorated pops to the plastic foam block to set.

Anxious to try this clever cake pop. I re-read this and finally think I figured out the following. Poke the lollipop stick into the donut, (then take it out and dip the stick into the melted chocolate, then back into the donut.) Then store in styrofoam until the stick is set, then dip the donut in the chocolate and decorate.

It's so much eaiser than the cake baking process and you don't have to worry about the cake being too sweet! Can't believe I did not think of that one.

This is so much better than making the cake and mixing the icing etc. It was so hard to make the cake balls perfectly round before dipping - what a great idea this is!! THANK-YOU!!
