Disclaimer: These are not as easy to make as some might portray them to be.
In order for us to attempt to make these cake pops, we both researched various recipes and blogs that tried them before. One thing to know, they are time consuming and delicate. By delicate, we mean, they can fall apart and be difficult to coat in melted candy. In saying that, we don't want to discourage you from trying cake pops. They are not only pleasing to look at, but they are the perfect dessert for parties. In honor of the Super Bowl, you could even make them look like football helmets or decorate them using your favorite team's colors.
