Google+ That Flour Child: Caramel Apple Cake Pops

Caramel Apple Cake Pops

I made these cake pops for a pot luck at work.  The good thing about these is that they are easier to transport in my opinion than cupcakes or cookies with icing, because once they harden they can all put thrown into one tupperware.

Sure they're a little bit labour intensive, I would be lying if I told you they're easy.  I haven't perfected the absolutely smooth coating and not sure I ever will, but I kind of like how these ones have a rough exterior, makes them look a little bit spooky and Halloween appropriate.

To make it as easy and cheap as possible, I bought cake mix and icing pre made.  I also got the caramel icing favouring from Duncan Hanes in order to give the white cake a caramel flavour so it kind of went with the caramel apple candy melts.  Bake the cake according to directions on the box.

Break it up into little crumbs once it has cooled down.

Mix in icing and caramel flavouring.

Roll into ball shapes, throw them in the freezer or fridge to harden up.

Melt a few of the candy melts, dip the sticks into the candy melts and push them into the cake balls.  Return them to the freezer.

Melt the remaining candy melts (I actually ended up using two bags of the candy melts) in a tall cup, and dip the cake balls on sticks into the melted melts.

Place on parchment or tin foil and return to the fridge/freezer until coating hardens.

I don't know why but I've been dreaming up cake pop recipes in my head.  And Wilton has so many cool candy melt flavours!  My goal is to perfect the smooth coat.  Let me know in the comments below if you have any tips for me!

  1. I find sometimes the candy melts are a bit thick even when melted, which makes it difficult to get a smooth coat. If this is the case I add a drop or two of canola oil to the candy melts to help thin it out and get a smoother coat.
