Below is a photo of the cake pops that ALMOST failed!
I have no fancy decorations on these. I was happy just to get them done. My husband was having a Halloween lunch at work, so I took this as a chance to attempt cake pops. I looked online for some recipes, and decided to make pumpkin cake pops!
As the instructions said. I made a spiced cake and mixed the cake with pumpkin puree.
Here are some lovely pictures of my kitchen sink after melting all the chocolate in my house didn’t work!. I used up all the chocolate in my house. I ALMOST gave up on these!!
I hopped online and found a forum on melting chocolate for dipping. The secret is adding Shortening to the chocolate! This thins out the chocolate enough to dip things. AND unlike oil or butter, It dries thick with the chocolate!!
( I really could have used this tip during my chocolate covered pretzel disaster last Christmas)
and THATS the secret of successful cake pop dipping! ( or any kind of chocolate dipping!)
