Supernatural Cake Pops
Cake Pops made with Red Velvet Cake (recipe here)
White Candy Melts OR White Chocolate
Black Candy Melts
Course Sea Salt
Cake Pop/Lollipop Sticks (wooden ones if you can find them)
2 Candy Decorating Bags or Candy Squeeze Bottles (optional)
Parchment or Wax Paper
Styrofoam block or something else to hold the cake pops upright while they dry.
1. Make your red velvet cake pops using whichever method you'd like (cake cop maker, crumbled cake + cream cheese or frosting, etc.) & chill in the freezer for a few mins. to solidify. Remember when inserting the sticks to do so with a little dab of melted chocolate at the ends so the sticks stay stuck in the pops. Heat the white chocolate in a microwaveable bowl at 30 second intervals, stirring after each time, until completely melted. Add in a small amount of oil & stir to make the chocolate thinner & more dip-able. Dip half of the pops in white, tapping your wrist gently while holding the pop over the bowl so the excess chocolate falls off. Stick the coated pops upright in the styrofoam. Now repeat the melting & dipping process with the black melts for the other half of the cake pops.
2. Put the rest of the melted white chocolate into a candy piping bag or squeeze bottle, or simply use a spoon for this step, & zig-zag drizzle white chocolate over the black pops. Do the same thing for the melted black & drizzle it over the white pops. Sprinkle course ground sea salt onto all of the pops & let the pops harden.
4. Once the stars & feathers have hardened, carefully release them from the paper by reaching your hand underneath & pushing up on the shapes while pulling away the paper. Affix the stars to the black pops & the feathers to the white pops using tiny dabs of melted chocolate (reheat the chocolate if needed, 30 secs. in the microwave). You'll need to hold the stars & feathers in place while the chocolate hardens, but be careful not to melt the shapes with the heat from your hands! You can do this step while the pops are upright, but laying them down is easier as it requires less holding in place against gravity.
