Here come's Peter Cottontail

And his chick friends. And these are the edible variety! Today on Good Things Utah I made cake pops that are perfect for Easter treats. My inspiration - the ever famous Bakerella! Of course, her cake pops look tons better, but you'll see from the segment that they are easy to make.

Bunny and Chick Easter Cake Pops

I took a few pictures during the process because there isn't enough time on the show to do everything. Plus, I'll share a few tips I learned along the way - hopefully you can avoid the pitfalls I ran into.

Tip #1: Don't mix in all the frosting at the beginning. Add about 3/4 of the can to the cake, mix it together, and only add more frosting if it seems dry. Adding too much frosting makes the cake pops really soft and more challenging to work with when dipping in the melted chocolate (although they do taste really, really good with all the frosting).

Tip #2: Make your cake pops small. Especially if you are doing the bunnies otherwise the candy corn ears aren't proportionate to the head (as I quickly discovered). If this happens, no worries, only take pictures of the ones that look okay :)

Tip #3: Make your cake balls assembly line style - make all the cake pop balls, dip them all in melted chocolate, add all the faces, add all the ears, etc.


Tip #4: The chicks are much easier to make. Maybe not a tip, but definitely good to know.

Tip #5: Allow plenty of time so you can enjoy the process. And let the kids join in for the decorating. It's loads of fun. And if you don't want to make animals, roll the pops in sprinkles before the chocolate is totally dry.

Happy Easter!

If you have any left, bring them to Easter dinner! So cute, and of course, we all know they'll taste divine!

Teresa, unfortunately there are none left. I took them to work and they disappeared :)
