While at the store (Target) last week, I came across this cute little heart shaped baking tray and I just had to pick it up. Mostly because my 3 year old was yelling about “eat-a-pops”, which is what she calls anything you can eat that’s on a stick. A few minutes later and we were on our way home to make some Chocolate Covered Heart Shaped Cake Pops.
There really are not a lot of things you need for this tutorial, just a great cake recipe, some chocolate candy melts, and an oven!
Chocolate Covered Heart Shaped Cake Pops
Step 1: Grab your favorite cake recipe and get everything mixed and ready.
Step 2: Once your mix is ready, place small scoops into the heart shaped baking dish that has been sprayed with a non stick spray and sprinkled with a little flour.
Step 3: Cover your tray with the top and bake for 10 minutes. I found this was the perfect amount of time for these little hearts!
Step 4: Once finished, open up the tray and pop them out on a sheet of wax paper or a cooling rack. Take the popsicle (eat-a-pop) sticks, dip them in chocolate, and allow to cool.
Step 5: Once cooled, cover in chocolate and decorate as desired.
Such a cute and fun project, and now little Addy can have her cake and “eat a pops”, too! Ok, that was cheesy… I did find that one cake mix would make about 60 heart shaped cake pops, so you will have plenty to share!
We had so much fun making these. I love making fun desserts with the kiddos, and they love to help “taste test” to make sure they are perfect. We coated our “eat-a-pops” in chocolate and sprinkles, (and we coated half of the kitchen in the same).
I hope you have fun like we did making cute Valentine’s desserts, and make sure to give these Chocolate Covered Heart Shaped Cake Pops a try.
