Chocolate Grad Cap Pops

17 May

It’s graduation season again. Another year, another flock of bright-eyed dreamers released into the world. In this year’s cast is my sister, Camie, graduating from San Jose State University this Friday. Yay, Camie! Celebrating is snacking, naturally, so in a hunt for the perfect treat for this occasion, I came across these great recipes for Grad Cap Pops.

Here’s a recipe from scratch for graduation cake pops. I love the pretty arrangement too!

Looking for a quicker recipe? Check out this recipe from Bakerella using Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Godiva Chocolate squares, and sour belts.

On Flickr, nomnomcupcakes shares a delicious recipe variation. Instead of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, it’s double chocolate cake whipped with chocolate buttercream, molded by colored chocolate, and topped with a marshmallow tassel! I especially love the gold glints along the caps.

Happy graduation, Class of 2011!!

Angry Birds Cake Pops!

11 Apr

These days, it’s unthinkable to wait idly, even for two minutes. So you have to be prepared with a few good time-wasting apps on your phone like Angry Birds. It’s on my phone, of course. I love the bright and bold design of all the characters. And now, someone’s had the clever idea to translate their colorful, round, poofy bodies into…cake pops! Genius.

Lucky for us, The Girl Who Ate Everything apparently shares everything too! Read the Angry Birds Cake Pops recipe.
