Bakerella is the queen of cake pops. Get her book on how to make every cake pop under the sun here.
1 box of cake orange mini chocolate chips black food coloring gel
1 tub of frosting orange flower sprinkles lolly pop sticks
yellow melting chocolate yellow mini m&ms
Bake your cake as directed on box and let it cool. Once it is cool get a large mixing bowl and crumble the whole thing up into tiny crumbs. Add 3/4 a tub of frosting and mix until frosting is incorporated.
Roll into 1.5"-2" balls and put in the fridge to set overnight.
Melt chocolate into a deep tupperware container so it is easy to submerge the cake balls into the chocolate.
Dip the lolly pop stick 1/2" into the chocolate and insert into the cake ball.
Submerge the entire cake ball into the chocolate and remove.
Next add the wings (yellow mini m&ms) and beak (orange mini choc. chip) and feet (orange flower sprinkles)
Next, stick your chicks in a Styrofoam block to cool.
You are almost finished. Take a toothpick and dab it into your black gel food coloring and add the little eyes.
And...... There you have it, the cutest, yummiest little chickys you ever did see!
I like to display mine in a square glass jar filled with white sugar!
