Monster Mash Cake Pops
Cake pops are all the rage and for good reason! They are the perfect grab-and-go dessert at a party, and the opportunities are endless: you can match to any party theme each and every time you make them.
Make This Recipe
2/3 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
Blue Sanding Sugar
White Fondant or Candy Eyes
Black food coloring gel (for decorating)
White food coloring gel (for decorating)
Blue Candy Melts
- Preheat over to 350°F
- Mix everything together & bake for 35 min
- Wait until the brownie cools down a bit to mold into the shape you like.
- Heat a few candy melts in the microwave, stirring at 30-second intervals.
- Dip the tip of each stick into the melted candy and push into cake pop until it reaches about halfway through.
- Place on a plate/pie tin and freeze for 20 minutes.
- Remove cake pops from freezer (work in batches of 12 so they stay cold while coating) and heat the rest of the candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl, stirring at 30-second intervals. Dip cake pop into melted candy to cover the top half; then use a spoon to cover the rest of the cake pop. This is easier than twirling the stick around in the coating because you don’t want the cake to fall off the stick! Immediately sprinkle with blue sanding sugar over the entire cake pop.
- Let the cake pops rest for about 10 minutes in a styrofoam block or cake dummy (If you don’t have either, fill a cup with rice, beans, or sprinkles and place the cake pops in the cup) Let the candy melts set within the cake pop.
- *NOTE: if using candy eyes skip to step 10* While they are drying, make the eyes. Using the white fondant, create small balls. Draw on the pupils with black food coloring gel & allow to dry.
- Once dry, attach the eyes to the cake pop with leftover candy melts. (candy melts work like glue)
