Poptastic Cake Pops!

Finally... having had the cake pop mold in my cupboard for a few months, I finally got started...  WOW!! Very very Exciting!! I just used the recipe which came with the mold and they turned out amazing and were a definite showstopper! This glitter just makes everything look amazing anyway, but really, they tasted as good as they looked! I can't wait to get started on more... plus, the recipe makes around 24 so you can experiment in one batch with the different toppings.

Fudgy Cake Pops
¾ semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup butter
¾ cup sugar
3 Tbsp cocoa
2 eggs
¾ cup flour
¼ tsp salt
24 lollipop sticks
12 oz. chocolate bark coating
Heat oven to 325F. Grease and flour pan. In medium saucepan, over low heat, melt chocolate chips and butter together. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat and pour into medium bowl. Add sugar and cocoa. Mix until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add flour and salt. Stir until blended. Spoon batter into bottom half of pan (without holes) filling each well so it mounds over the top of the pan. (I used my Norpro 1tbsp scoop for this step. Worked perfect.) Place top half of pan on top and secure with keys. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out almost clean. Cool 5 minutes in pan, then remove cake pops from pan to cool completely. Melt chocolate bark according to package directions. Dip lollipop stick into melted chocolate and insert into cake. Repeat with all cakes. Allow chocolate to cool to secure stick in place. Dip cake pop in melted chocolate, spinning to let excess chocolate drip off. Decorate with sprinkles as desired. Place on parchment paper to set. Makes about 24 cake pops.
