These cake pops have all the warm, spiced flavor from a slice of gingerbread in a (practically) guilt-free bite. Crumbled cake is mixed with a spoon of frosting, rolled into balls and decorated in a festive Christmas berry design. These are the perfect sweet treat for your holiday party!
Don't add too much frosting to the mix. The crumbled cake and frosting should mix together to form a play-doh-like consistency, not too wet or too dryAfter forming the balls and chilling, let them warm up just a bit before dipping. They have a tendency to crack if the balls are too cold and the coating too warm.Don't overheat the candy melts. My rule of thumb is to heat it in 30 second increments in the microwave and stir well each time. I also heat mine at 50-60% power....trust me...low and slow prevents a gloppy mess!If your melted coating is too thick, add a drop or two of canola oil and mix well.The biggest tip...don't sweat it if they're not perfect the first time you make them! It takes a little practice but soon you'll find a rhythm.
