Did you know that tomorrow is Harry Potter’s birthday? I have some Harry obsessed members of my family (ehem, husband!) and we celebrated a little early with a fun little treat, these golden snitch cake pops! I thought that you guys might want to create them for yourself so today I’m participating in Marissa’s Harry Potter Series. A bunch of bloggers have all been sharing a bunch of Potter related posts in honor of his birthday. And there’s also a fabulous Harry Potter giveaway at the end of this post, so make sure you enter for all the fabulous items.
Now, onto the cake pops. If you’ve never made any before, you will be super excited to hear how easy they are to make.
Start by baking a cake of your choice. I wanted these to be white with chocolate pops, so I made a white cake from a box mix. Feel free to make whatever one you’d like. Once the cake is cooled, cut it up a bit to make it easier to crumble.
Then I used a pre-made chocolate frosting. and just dumped the whole thing in and mix it up until well blended.
Once it’s all blended together, roll them into balls the size of your choice. Mine were about the size of a golf ball. Pack them tight and place them on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper. You should be able to make about 2 dozen or so (depending on the size). Once they are all rolled, put them in the freezer for about an hour to harden and become firm.
Melt some white candy melts in the microwave at half power for about 30 seconds at a time until it’s all melted. Using your pop sticks, dip it into the candy melts about 1 inch to cover the stick.
Push the stick into the cake balls and hold into place until the candy hardens. This will hold it into place when you dip the whole cake pop into the candy.
Once you’ve got a stick in all of them, you can now dip them all in the candy. Once dipped, let all the excess drip off of the ball and then roll it in gold sprinkles.
I tried to make/put wings on it but they didn’t work very well. But that’s ok, cause I think they look so cute as is.
