Before I show you the following photos, I feel the need for a disclaimer. I am not a super star in the kitchen, but I'm not hopeless. I cook nearly all our meals at home, have mastered yeast and can even make my mom's English toffee. Family Circle just totally schooled me on this one.
In a fit of overachieving, I got inspired to try to make these cake pops for my MOMS Club meeting this morning-
I thought I could handled this one.
The melted candy coating was like a ray gun that disintegrated the cake balls on contact.
It ended with me angrily dumping candy coating on my surviving cake balls, resulting in some fairly disturbing demonic cookies.
So instead of being the mom who bought the super cute cake pops, I'm the mom who bought hot mess cookies with eyes.
Cake Pops 1, Me 0.
Darn you Family Circle and your promises of easy Halloween treats.
(I doubled checked and I correctly followed the instructions in the freaking article.)
I can't let these things defeat me! There will be another round and next time I'm determined that my cake pops will actually be on sticks and will not look like evil mutants.
So...do any of you domestic divas has any suggestions? Am I missing some super secret tricks on this one? Please help me conquer the cake pops!
