Sheep Cake Pops

Read the basic cake pop recipe first and then use the decorating tips below for the sheep.

Sheep Cake Pops Ingredients:

White Candy Melts
Sugar pearls
Licorice Bridge Mix(buttons for heads and pastels cut in half for legs)
Tiny Heart Sprinkles (noses)
Rainbow Chip Sprinkles (ears)
Paper Lollipop Sticks
Styrofoam Block

Shape the cake mixture into an oval shape. Chill until firm.
Dip a lollipop stick in a little of the white chocolate and insert into the body almost halfway.
Then dip the sheep body in a bowl of melted white candy coating. Make sure the bowl is deep enough to dip and remove easily.

Tap off any excess coating.
When you make these, it’s best if the candy coating has set out for a few minutes after being heated. Because when you remove the pop from the coating, you will want to go ahead and attach the head, then the feet and then sprinkle on the sugar pearls. It’s really a timing thing. If it’s too hot, the adornments will slide off and if it has cooled too long, the chocolate will set before you can finish attaching everything. But not to worry, if that happens, then reheat the coating and use it as a glue to attach things.
