If you’re looking for something fun to bring to a Super Bowl party, or an end-of-the-season kids football party, here’s something easy and fun; Football Cake Pops!
I made these for a Super Bowl party – and they were a hit. Overall, it’s pretty easy.
Step 1: You will need cake mix and ingredients. Frosting. Lollipop sticks. Some white decorating frosting/pen.
Step 2: Follow the directions on the cake box and bake the cake. Once it cools, cut it up and mix it in a bowl with 3/4 of a frosting container. I made chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. But you can do any combination you wish. You’re going to want to mix it good with your hands until it forms a dough consistency.
Step 3: Take out a spoonful of dough and roll it into a ball. Once I had a good ball, I rolled it front to back of my hand and made it a little longer than rounder. Then, I pinched out the ends to make it look more like a football.
Step 4: Freeze the footballs for at least 45 minutes in the freezer. This will keep from falling apart when you dip.
Step 5: Melt your chocolate. As I’ve previously mentioned, I prefer to use Almond Bark because it melts better.
Step 6: Dip the tip of a lollipop stick into the chocolate and stick it into the ball. Dip the rest of the football and shake off the extra chocolate. Then stand the stick up to dry. I have a piece of styrofoam I use for all of my dipping.
Step 7: Let all the chocolate set by putting all the pops in the fridge. Once they are set, draw the football laces on top with your white decorating pen.
Step 8: Bring them to your party where everyone will ask you, “how did you make these?”
