There’s Always Room for Cake and Ice Cream – Ice Cream Cake Pops!

Ice Cream Cake Pops! by Miss CandiQuik | Recipe at http://blog.candiquik.com

These are my favorite cake bites (balls, pops, whatever) for a couple reasons:

1 Just look at them! A-dorable!

2 I LOVE Ice Cream

I could eat a BOWL every night  before bed, & actually… I used to.

Seriously, every night. Ask my mom.

Had to knock that off though, you know how it is.

How cool are these though – cake! Posing as ice cream (and doing a dang good job at it)! Bakerella is a genius, she’s the one who originally dreamed these up. Then I just took it a step further and added a cake bite ice cream bowl!

Best part EVER - no melting ice cream.

Just CANDIQUIK, taking cake balls for a quick dip, drip, and dry!

Warning you: this post is going to have a lot of pictures!

I took a lot. I am also indecisive.

Author:
Serves: 40
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:

 
Ingredients
  • 1 box cake mix (plus ingredients for cake mix)
  • ½ cup cake frosting (canned or homemade)
  • 40 waffle ice cream cones
  • 2 packages (16 oz) Vanilla CANDIQUIK® Coating
  • 8 oz. Chocolate CANDIQUIK® Coating
  • 1 bag M&M’s® (or red candies)
  • Assorted sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on box; cool completely.
  2. Crumble cake into a large bowl. Add frosting and mix thoroughly.
  3. Roll mixture into 1″ sized balls. Chill for approximately 1-2 hours in the refrigerator.
  4. Carefully cut the top of the waffle cones off, so the cones measure approximately 2 ½ inches tall.
  5. Melt Vanilla CANDIQUIK in tray according to directions on package.
  6. Press a cake ball on top of the mini waffle cone. Dip the top of the cake ball into the CANDIQUIK by holding the end of the cone. Slowly allow most of the excess vanilla coating to drip off, letting a little melt down over the cone (gives it the melted look
  7. when dry)! Sprinkle if desired.
  8. Stick cones into a Styrofoam block or ice cream cone holder to dry. Once dry, melt Chocolate CANDIQUIK and spoon a small amount on top of each cone allowing it to drip over the sides. Top with a red M&M candy before chocolate has set.
Notes/Tips
If cake balls start to fall off your cones or get gooey when dipping, return the remaining cake balls to the freezer or refrigerator until firm.

OOPS!

Ok - not really, duh. But I looove this one - dip a cake ball (the messier the better), plop ‘em on wax paper, sprinkle, and press the cone on top!

I really want to keep going and showing you the 150+ different pictures of these ice cream cones, but I’ll save that time for you to get started on these :)

Thanks for reading as always!

Tip: you can always use sugar cones and saw the tops off using a knife. Or you can make it easier and buy the mini kid cones (I’ve only seen these in select stores and they are the ‘Joy’ brand).
