Valentines Cake Pop Bouquet!

With Valentine’s day being right around the corner, what better way to celebrate than making fun, yummy treats with the family! Kids love helping with cooking and making treats, which is a great way to spend time with your child. This activity will be sure to keep any child engaged and attentive! Use your imagination with this activity and be creative. Let the kids choose how they want to decorate and, most importantly, have FUN!



Valentines Cake Pop Bouquet


Ingredients

  • Any kind of cake mix (I chose to do red velvet for Valentine’s day) 
  • 1 container frosting 
  • Chocolate chips (Any kind based on preference) 
  • Sprinkles 
  • Sticks to hold up your cake pops


Step 1: Bake your cake according to instructions on the package. 
Step 2: After baking your cake, let it completely cool. Around 30 minutes. 


Step 3: The fun part! Get your little one to help with this step! Get a large bowel and completely smash and squish the cake into the bowl, leaving only crumbs in the bowl. 

Step 4: After the cake is smashed, pour the frosting into the bowel and continue squishing with your hands until the mixture comes together.




Step 5: Roll the "dough" into little balls and put on a cookie sheet. Keep in mind that the balls will not be perfect. To help keep the shape of the balls, I just added a little bit of powdered sugar to my hands to help with the stickiness. Put the stick into the cake pop.


Step 6: Put the cookie sheet in the freezer for around 20 minutes to completely cool and form shape. 
Step 7: Melt chocolate chips in the microwave to completely melt the chocolate. 
Step 8: Dip your cake pops in the chocolate to completely coat. If your cake pops are still crumbly, use a spoon to cover it with chocolate. 

Step 9: While the chocolate is still melted put sprinkles or any kind of decoration on.

Step 10: Put them in any kind of jar, to make your cake pop bouquet!



Not only do these cake pops look fun, but they also taste amazing! Kids love this activity and it gives them a chance to be creative and use their imagination. Happy Valentines Day!
