Three Ideas for Easter Cake Pops
Whether you have the whole family coming over for Easter or you plan on visiting a friend for the holiday, why not bring along some fun Easter cake pops? These Easter cake pop ideas are so cute that you might find yourself too afraid to eat them. Don’t worry though because everything about these cake pops is edible except for the stick!
Easter Sheep Cake Pops
Form your cake pops into traditional ball shapes for the Easter sheep idea and insert a skewer in the bottom. Place shredded coconut in a blender or food processor and chop until the coconut has a thin and almost powdery texture. Dip the cake pops in melted white chocolate and then into the shredded coconut. The coconut acts as his adorable fur.
While the chocolate is still wet, carefully insert four small black licorice pastels on the bottom of the cake pops, placing two on each side. The licorice buttons should go halfway into the cake and stick out halfway to make his feet. Apply a dab of melted chocolate onto the back of a black licorice candy button and press onto the front of the cake pop. Add a cinnamon candy or a small red candy to the licorice with more melted chocolate to make the sheep’s nose. As an extra touch, add two small black or brown candies to the front of the Easter cake pop to make his eyes.
Easter Bunny Cake Pops
For the Easter bunny cake pops, form your cake pop mixture into small balls or ovals. Insert two oval or cylindrical candies into the top of the cake pop to form the bunny ears. I’ve made these before with candy corn and licorice bits, and both worked great. Make sure that you push the candies down deep enough that they don’t slip or move during dipping.
Carefully dip the Easter cake pops into melted white chocolate, covering the cake pop and ears with the chocolate. If you notice that the original color of the candy sticks out, drizzle extra chocolate over the top. Let the chocolate completely cool and harden on the cake mixture.
After the chocolate dries, add a drop of melted chocolate to the back of a small red candy and set in the center of the cake pop as the nose. Add a drop of melted chocolate to a miniature marshmallow and place on the back as the cotton tail. As an extra touch, draw two tiny eyes and a small mouth on the front of the bunny cake pop with edible markers.
Easter Chick Cake Pops
These tiny little Easter chick candy pops are not only adorable, but easy to make. Melt a bag of yellow colored candy melts or use ordinary white chocolate and add yellow gel food coloring. Dip oblong or rounded cake balls into the yellow candy coating, working on one cake pop at a time. Use candy coated chips as the wings and tiny noses of each chick. Use two yellow chips: one on each side as the wings and an orange chip as the nose.
As long as the chocolate is still warm, the chips should stick to the cake pop. If the chocolate starts hardening, dip the candy chips in freshly melted chocolate before attaching to your chick. Wilton makes orange and yellow sprinkles in the shape of tiny flowers, which are perfect for his feet. Add two to the bottom of the Easter chick when the chocolate is still wet. Once the chocolate dries, add the chick’s tiny eyes with an edible marker or use two small black sprinkles to form the cake pop’s eyes.
