Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cakepops!

Cakepops are literally popping up all over the place. Four years ago, no one even knew what they were...and now...they are EVERYWHERE.

Out of the thousands of cakepops I've made, I think that these are my favorite. Strawberry cake, molded into the shape of a strawberry.  Which is not as easy as you may think. Hm.

            I refrigerated them until they were firm enough to handle, then dipped them in red candy melts.

Then I dunked the tops in dark chocolate.

I tinted some white fondant green and punched out some leaves......

Then I attached the leaves to the bottom of the pops with a little candy melt "glue".

Dots of dark chocolate "seeds"....

.....and Poof!  

You're a Chocolate Covered Strawberry!

Happy Valentine's Day!
