If you’re attending a New Year’s Eve gathering, or if you’re celebrating any other exciting occasion, these New Year’s Cake Pops is a MUST on your party menu!
Happy New Year!! We are currently 18 days into the year and have you kept your goals?
Tips and Tricks for Making This New Year’s Cake Pops Recipe:
- Make the top of your pie level by using a spoon or a spatula.
- For a more festive look, top with whipped cream before serving.
- In choosing the chocolates to be melted, you can either use the regular dark brown chocolate or the light-colored ones like pink, green and other pretty colors.
- If you only have white chocolate on hand and do not want to buy, you can use that and just add a few drops of your desired food color.
- Make sure to really mix it and don’t melt it more than a minute to avoid burning it.
- When tapping the excess chocolate from the cake pops, tap it on your hand gently and not directly on the brim of the bowl. It would definitely knock off the cake pops from the stick and you wouldn’t want that 😉
How to Make this New Year’s Cake Pops Recipe:
Gather the ingredients for this New Year’s Cake Pops. Once the ingredients are all ready, let’s begin!
Use a day or two-day-old cake and crumble it. Add about two tablespoons of frosting to make the cake crumbs stick together:
Form into balls and lay them on parchment paper and let them sit there while you melt the chocolates:
Push the stick in the center of each cake pop and let it sit for another minute to harden the chocolate:
Sprinkle any candy sprinkles you have on hand:
Aren’t they pretty?!? They make such pretty table centerpieces or dessert buffet highlights. I am sure your New Year’s day guests will love them!
Q: Can the cake balls be frozen?
A: Yes, for sure. You can make these ahead to avoid taking too much time on making your New Year’s day dessert. Just thaw in room temperature at least 30 minutes before serving them.
Q: Can I add in condensed milk into the cake crumbs to make it stick?
A: Yes you can. But obviously, that would make this dessert much sweeter than it already is. Using frostings which are not too sweet might be better.
Q: How many cake balls can you make with this recipe?
A: I made about 15-20 cake pops. It would depend on how big your cake pops would be.
