July 4th Treats

Happy July 4th Everyone! I hope you spent the day eating way too much BBQ and treats (like I did!). Then spending the night watching fireworks to celebrate! As always, my parents made a huge BBQ and it was delicious. I volunteered to make some desserts for the party and brought patriotic cake pops, Rice Krispy treats, and Oreos with candy coating stripes. This was my first attempt ever at making cake pops and I was pleasantly surprised with how well I did. Wishing you all a safe and happy July 4th celebration!

Cake Pop Tips:

I made my cake from scratch but you can use a box mix if wanted. The key is to add enough frosting to the crumbled cake so that when formed into a ball it holds its shape. Refrigeration is also KEY. After they are rolled, make sure to freeze for one hour or refrigerate for two hours. Also, when you are dipping the balls into the candy coating or chocolate, only take out two or three at a time. This ensures that they stay firm enough when dipping.
