One of my favorite holidays of the year is almost here! 4th of July is coming so today I’m sharing a simple dessert recipe that will be the hit of your star spangled celebration: Red White and Blue Ice Cream Cone Cake Pops!
This recipe is simple to make and easy enough to include the kids. You can use any cake recipe though for 4th of July, I like to use red velvet. Boxed mixes work great or a homemade cake, whichever you prefer. You’ll need just a few items from JOANN and you’ll have all the kids screaming for these darling cake pops.
You will need:
Cake, crumbled (recipe of your choice, mine is listed HERE)
Icing (Wilton Decorator Icing or your favorite recipe)
White Candy Melts
Blue Candy Melts
Gold Star Sprinkles
Mini Ice Cream Cones
Disposable Decorating Bag
Microwave Safe Bowl
Directions: Crumble a cooled cake into a bowl or stand mixer and mix with a couple tablespoons of icing. I typically add about a tablespoon amount at a time, but since each cake bakes a little differently, it’s hard to give an exact amount. You’ll want to continue adding icing until your cake mixture is sticky and can be rolled into balls. The goal is a play-doh consistency.
Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop to form evenly sized balls, scoop out cake mixture and roll into balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Dip the outer rim of the ice cream cones down into melting candy and then place them onto the refrigerated cake balls. Once it hardens, dip cake ball (with cone attached) down into the melted candy. Let excess drip off and stand to dry.
Fill disposable decorating bag with blue candy melts. Microwave bag of candy melts on 30% power for 30 seconds. Repeat until candy melts are fully melted.
Snip just the tip of the decorating bag and carefully draw a 5 point star on the tops of each cake pop. While candy melts are still tacky, sprinkle blue candy melts with gold star sprinkles and top each with a red sixlet.
Allow cake pops to dry about 20 minutes.
Enjoy! What’s your favorite recipe to make for the 4th?
