Cake Pop's

I hope everyone is enjoying some of my recipes and tips!!! It makes me smile when I get an alert letting me know that someone has "pinned" my Silky Legs post! I know I do not keep up with this like I should. Things have been so crazy recently and they are only about to get crazier!

I have been battling a heart abnormality for four years and on Monday (July 2nd) I am finally having surgery to fix my "broken heart". It is a very simple procedure and I can not wait to feel normal again!! Well, as normal as I can be anyway!

I have an easy fun recipe for you to take into the holiday. It's a recipe for the easiest cake pops EVER! Some people think that you make cake pops from a round mold and bake it. Hate to burst your bubble, but there's no need to go buy a special pan, it's easier than that!!! All you need is a GF Chocolate Cake Mix, a regular size tub of frosting, and white chocolate almond bark.

 For this recipe, I use the Betty Crocker GF Devil's Food cake mix. Make the cake according to the directions on the box, except do not use water, use milk! (Always use milk over water!!!)

After the cake is baked, let it cool. Once it has cooled, break it up and run it through your food processor until it is a fine crumb. In a bowl or the baking pan (what I normally do) combine the tub of Chocolate Frosting (my choice) and the crumbed cake mix and then roll the messy mixture into small balls. If you have small dowel rods or popcicle sticks, put one in each cake ball and make it a cake "pop". I for one, never have either on hand, so I just make "Cake Balls".

Place in the refrigerator for about an hour and then dip into melted white chocolate almond bark, or just drizzle over the cake ball/pops.

We like to keep our "Cake Balls" in the refrigerator for the few hours that they last. My husband says that this specific combination almost tastes like an Oreo!!!! Which is actually perfect since my Twitter screen name is "i_miss_oreos".

I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

HAPPY 4th of JULY just incase I do not get to post again!!!
Thank a military member today!!!
