  • 1-2 packages strawberries, depending on how many you would like to make
  • 2-3 packages candy melts in assorted Valentine’s colors (can find these in craft stores)
  • 1 package cake pop sticks ( found on the same aisle as the candy melts in craft stores)
  • Optional hunk of shaped Styrofoam to hold the pops upright (also found in craft stores)

Strawberry “Cake” Pops

A much less sugary alternative to an actual cake pop, these guys are a fun way for kids to get involved in the decorating process.

How to Make

1. Pinch the stem and leaves off the top of each strawberry and insert cake pop sticks into the centers.

2. Using a double boiler, slowly melt the chocolate over low heat, or use the microwave to melt according to package directions (although a double-boiler is best, as the candy will stay continuously melty).

3. Dip the strawberries into the desired color and top with sprinkles before the candy coat sets.

4. Poke each pop into the Styrofoam to let it fully set.
