My sister and I (more her) made cake pops recently for a cookie swap we were invited to. She was telling me about these cake pop machines you can buy, but you really don't have to
My sister made the mix, I rolled the balls and stuck the sticks into them, sis dipped and dunked.
Et Voila! They were a huge hit at the cookie swap! (My sis also made Snowball cookies, recipe to come, soon!)
You can coat them however you like, which would make them wonderful little Holiday presents.
