OK, so I resisted the cake pop craze long enough. I saw this idea on the web, and it was just too cute to pass up. Truth be told, I didn't make true "cake" pops. These are what I call my "truffle pops", because I prefer these homemade truffles to the cake pops. (Why would I make a cake and then smash it up into a big mess? Besides, I can't control the ratio of frosting to cake in a cake pop; I prefer 10 to 90, myself. But I digress...)
So my truffle pops come in several different flavors: double chocolate, chocolate mint, chocolate peanut butter, and chocolate chip cookie dough. I made these double chocolate pops by rolling the truffle filling, freezing, then dipping in white and dark chocolate. Then I piped on lacy collars on the white pops and a bow tie on the dark pops. Then I packaged them in pairs with a personalized tag. They made adorable wedding favors and the guests loved them. They'd also be cute without the sticks packaged in little boxes. When it comes to chocolate, I do!
