Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup Cake crumbs (I used coconut cake)
  • 1 cup Dark chocolate chopped
  • as required Sugar Sprinkles/ Sugar confetti

Instructions
 

  • Place the cake crumbs in a bowl .
  • Make sure they are fine crumbs with a loose texture.
  • Add the frosting and mix well with your hands or mixer.
  • Make sure you get a doughy consistency that you can roll without being too sticky.
  • Let rest in the refrigerator for sometime.
  • Grease your palms a bit.
  • Roll small even shaped balls and place on a cookie sheet or parchment paper.
  • Refrigerate for 10 minutes or till firm.
  • Melt the chocolates using a double boiler till liquidy.
  • Take out the balls.
  • Dip the tip of each stick in the melted chocolate and insert into the cake ball.
  • Place them on the parchment paper with the stick standing up.
  • Once all the sticks are used up, place them in the refrigerator for another 10 minutes or till hardened.
  • Take them out
  • Keep the bowl of melted chocolates, sprinkles, styrofoam and pops close to each other in such a way that you don't have to run around much.
  • This helps in creating less mess as well.
  • Take each pop and carefully dip into the melted chocolate, swirling along the way to ensure even chocolate coating.
  • Tap on the edge on the bowl slowly and carefully to shake off the excess chocolate.
  • Immediately roll them in a bowl of sprinkles and coat evenly.
  • Plant the sticks in an upright position on a styrofoam or any material that helps them hold up straight.
  • Let cool. It's ready to be popped into your mouth :-).
