Homemade Cake Pops!! Mmmmm!! October 3, 2012

I Found this recipe on cake pops and had to share!! I know its not organic like the other recipes, but i know you will enjoy!!

 

Cake Ball Mix

 

What you need
1 batch red velvet cake                                                                                        8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups confectioner’s sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon milk (or more, as necessary)

Bake the cake and let it cool completely on a rack. The cake should be moist for it to stick together. It’s best to let it cool overnight at least. When it is completely cool, break the cake into a large bowl. Crumble it with forks or your fingers until it is in fine crumbs.

In a separate bowl, whip the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and milk together until smooth. Pour into the cake crumbs and mix with a spoon. Then continue mixing with your fingers, kneading and mixing until fully incorporated into the cake. Check to see if it will roll into a ball.

When the mix is completely done, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm. You can leave the mix refrigerated for several days at this point. I left mine in the fridge for about three days before making the balls. You could probably also freeze this.

Making Cake Pops

What you need
Lollipop sticks (found at Michael’s, JoAnn’s, or other craft stores)
12 ounces chocolate chips
12 ounces white chocolate bark
Edible wax, optional
Colored sugars, candies, and other decorative sprinkles

How to make the balls
Prepare two large baking sheets by covering with wax paper or parchment. Take a bit of the cake mixture and roll it into a smooth ball. If you want to use the lollipop sticks, stick one into the end of each ball, pointing upward, as you put the ball back down on the sheet. [Note: I cut the long lollipop sticks in half; they seemed a little long for the size of the balls.] Repeat until you’ve used up all the mixture. As each sheet fills up, put it in the freezer so that the balls harden.

How to decorate the cake pops
Melt chocolate or white chocolate in a double boiler on the stove. If you want to make the coating a little more resistant to melting, add a small square of wax to the pot and let it melt too. Stir well. Dip each ball into the chocolate until covered.

Dip in sugar, coconut, sprinkles, or anything else you’d like to decorate with. Put it back on the sheet to harden.

Don’t refrigerate these; it will cause the coating to weep or melt. They can be frozen, however.

 

Mean Green Machine! Green Juice that keeps you healthy! August 8, 2012

This juice is amazing!! At first, I thought it looked green and that it might taste bad, but was I wrong!! It is so yummy and healthy! It has a blend of kiwi, apples, pineapple, many green and delicious fruits!! It also has a kick of other ingredients that aren’t in our daily diet, but are necessary for healthy functioning of our bodies.

 Spirulina, chollera, broccoli, garlic, blue green algae, barley grass the list goes on.

I would love to post the importance of each of these items, because we americans seriously lack vitamins and minerals in our diets. One cup is a serving, so this big bottle comes with a couple days worth of yumminess. It is made by Boathouse farms, which is just as good as the same type of thing made by Naked Juices. There is also a million other flavors, with different types of fruit and combos. This green one is definetly the most power packed with minerals. I bought it at my local Stater Bros Grocery Store, and should be available any where near you. =]
