Here is how you make the cupcake pops!  

For the Cupcake bites or Cupcake pops:
  1. You just bake one (1) box of cake box mix of any flavor you like - such as "Duncan Hines Red velvet" as instructed on the box
  2. Let the cake cool, once cooled you can just break the cake into pieces in a mixing bowl and then use a fork or your hands to mush the cake into crumbs... until its all little crumbles.
  3. Then mix it with 1 jar of store bought cupcake frosting ( my fave is Cream cheese)  
  4. You can also use one cake recipe of your choice of flavor mixed with about 16 oz. of frosting recipe and it will create the same texture.  I love red velvet mixed with cream this is the only time I will ever use a box mix and  already pre-made frosting mixes!  It makes a good cupcake pop!  Go Bakerella!  She is the queen who created this cupcake treat phenomena!
  •  Then scoop a spoonful of the mixture into your hands and roll the small amount of cake mixture into about a 1" inch ball.
  • Then repeat for all of the cake mixture and then place in a lined baking pan and refrigerate the balls for about 20 minutes until firm.
  • Then take out the cake balls and then press in into the mold tightly. It will look like a mini cupcake! 
  • Then gently peel out the cupcake mixture from the tip out of the mold.  It will come out easily with this mold!
  • Place the cupcake right side up and then refrigerate for about 30 minutes and then you can begin by dipping the bottom part of the cupcake and then insert a lollipop stick.
  • Then  place them stick up on the lined baking sheet until bottom chocolate is firm.
  • Then once firm you can pick up by the lollipop stick handle and then dipping them into a different color like pink or purple. 
  • While the chocolate is still shiny make sure to gently sprinkle the top and place a Mini M&M or a Yogo as a topper! :)
  • Then get a styrofoam block from Micheals and gently push the end of the lollipop stick into the styrofoam right side up to dry!
Color combinations I love for these cake pops are:
  • Any pastel color like Pink, Baby blue, Mint green, Lavender with brown chocolate bottom
  • White on top with Hot pink bottom
  • Hot pink tops with brown bottom
  • White chocolate top with Teal bottom :)
Here are cupcake bites with dark chocolate bottom and hot pink top with mini polka dot sprinkles and a brown mini M&M!  Hope you enjoy!
