Cake Pops

This year for each of the kids' birthdays, I made cake pops. They are actually really easy to make, they just take a bit of time.

Rolled into balls, ready to dip...









Cake Pops

1 cake mix (your choice)
Icing (homemade butter-cream or bought)
Dipping Chocolate
Cake Pop Sticks
Decorations, sprinkles

Bake the cake (as per instructions) and let it cool completely on a rack.  Once it is cooled, break the cake into a large bowl. Crumble it with forks or your fingers until it is in fine crumbs.  Add icing, just enough to get the cake to stick together.  Roll into balls and place onto cookie sheet, covered with wax paper.  Refrigerate.  You can also freeze this, if you have extra.  Once cooled, melt your dipping chocolate.  Dip a cake pop stick into the dipping chocolate and stick into a cake pop.  Refrigerate until chocolate is cooled.  Then dip the entire cake pop into the dipping chocolate and decorate as you wish.  Enjoy!

Strawberry/Pineapple Smoothie

This is what I'm drinking right now, as I get this post ready! :)



Strawberry/Pineapple Smoothie

Fresh Pineapple chunks
Strawberries
Cinnamon
Vanilla
Almond Milk
Stevia, just a sprinkle (you can also use sugar)

Sorry, I don't have any amounts, but you really can't go wrong!!  Just dump together and blend.  It's SOO tasty!  Enjoy!
