My oldest stepdaughter is graduating from high school and like most step mom's, finding where you fit is a difficult place to be. So, there were a few things I was asked to do for this party...rent the room, decide the tables and do some decorating and most def do the CAKE POPS! So, I have avoided this for as long as possible but knew if I didn't do a trial run I would regret it!
So here is the recipe that I used:
1 3/4 cup flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup boiling water
After you throw all those ingredients in your trusty KitchenAid then its time to put them into your good ol Cake pop maker! Don't have one you say???? It's worth the 19.99 for the huge amount of time it will SAVE you...especially if you are like me and have 200 cake pops to do!
The directions said to NOT fill all the way.....I did NOT obey because when I did they were mini....so I filled er up BABY!
I then put in the fridge for 25 minutes...then I iced them...and I think for a trial run they came out just gorgeous!
I did go and buy the holder at HObby Lobby and I found that making a bunch and just letting them cool without the hassle of the fridge worked perfectly fine as well! If I were to do that many again I would buy two of the holders...that would have been WELL WORTH IT!
1. I ate two without blinking...pretty sure that 1 a piece isn't going to do it....prob should make 300
2. I need WAY more chocolate than I bought.
3. I am going to go buy the cardboard item that holds a hundred cake pops while you ice them....that would be GREAT!
Have a GREAT day!
