Boo Cake Pops


Items needed:

1 (16.5-ounce) Box Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
2/3 cup Chocolate Frosting
3 (14-ounce) bags Vanilla Candy Melts or Wafers
Vegetable Oil
Black Food Coloring
Paint Brush
Lollipop Sticks
Treat bags
Black Ribbon
Large piece of Styrofoam 
Foil
Double Boiler

Lay out a couple of ungreased pans, set aside. Cover a large piece of Styrofoam with foil, set aside. Prepare and bake cake according to package directions. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Break apart cake and place in a large bowl, then crumble completely. Stir in frosting, then blend together with hands until you have the texture of play-doh. Melt a small amount of vanilla candy wafers in a small bowl, set aside. Mold cake into shape of ghosts. Dip tip of lollipop stick into melted candy, then insert a little ways into the bottom of the ghost. Lay flat on pan. Repeat until all dough is used. *You will need to melt your vanilla candy wafers every so often to continue use. Place in fridge for 1 hour. Just before removing from fridge, melt 1 bag of the desired candy color wafers along with 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in a double boiler. Remove 5 cake pops at a time from the fridge. Carefully, remove from pan and dip top of cake pop in the melted candy. Use a spoon to drizzle the candy coating near the stick. Tap cake pop on the side of the pan so excess will drip off. Dip an additional 2 times for a nice coating, then use your finger to smooth out the back. Place in styrofoam. Melt candy wafers as needed to continue use. Pour leftover melted candy in a bowl and save. Let cake pops sit for several hours to set. Reheat leftover hardened candy in bowl and use to seal any cracks in coating with the tip of your finger. Place back in styrofoam to harden. With a black food coloring, paint eyes and a mouth on each ghost. Let sit to dry. Place a treat bag over each cake pop and tie with ribbon.

*You will need to use 3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil with each bag of wafers.
