Spider Cake Pops Recipe

Cake pops are super party treats because of how easy they are to make in advance and serve. Check out this spooky recipe! Get started by gathering your supplies: Lollipop Sticks, Black Jimmy Sprinkles, Black Licorice Pinwheels, Black Candy Melts, Wilton Candy Eyes. Also, it's a good idea to always have toothpicks handy. Step 1: Using your recipe of choice, roll cake into a ball. Step 2: Dip a lollipop stick in melted black candy melts about 1/2 inch. Place that end into one side of the ball. Go about half way. Step 3: Dip the cake pop into the black candy melts. After the pop is completely covered, gently tap the stick on the edge of the bowl to drip off the excess. *Note: Since these pops will stand upside down, it's best to place them on wax paper to give stability as they dry. Step 4: As the candy melt hardens, place two Wilton Candy Eyes on one side for the face. Step 5: Immediately after, sprinkle Black Jimmy Sprinkles all over the cake ball. Step 6: Cut black licorice pinwheel to desired length. Applying the legs can be done one of two ways: Option A: After the pop dries completely, poke a hole with a toothpick at each point you want to attach a leg, deep enough so the licorice stays on its own. Insert and curl the legs as shown in the picture. Option B: Immediately after step 4, place licorice pieces on the cake ball. With this method you have to work quickly. As the candy melt hardens, place all legs and allow plenty of time to set up. Recipe from: 365cakepops.com
