Cake pops are girly, right? Wrong. These Maple Bacon Cake Pops are for everyone! Who wouldn't love a Chocolate Covered Maple Bacon Cake Pop with more bacon on top?
This was my first try making cake pops and I'm in love. You can expect to see many more cake pop recipes and ideas from us! They were so easy to make and they look awesome!
I used this new box set that's available for a limited time from MARTIN'S. The box includes yellow cake mix and maple and bacon frosting. Perfect for cake balls, right?

Making the cake pops is a breeze! Just whip up the cake and frosting according to the box's directions. Then you're going to crumbled your cooled cake and add in the frosting. Use your hands and get it all combined.
- Prepare cake and frosting according to package.
- Allow cake to cool, then crumble.
- Add ¾ cup maple and bacon frosting to crumbled cake.
- Use your hands to really mix it all in.
- Using a mini scoop, make your cake balls evenly sized and place on a plate.
- Melt a few chocolate wafers for 1 min at 50% power and stir.
- Dip cake pop sticks into melted chocolate and stick them half way into cake balls.
- Place balls with sticks in them into the freezer for about 20 minutes.
- Melt chocolate in a tall slim container (this makes it easier to dip the whole cake pop in without all the twirling and swirling) for 1 min at 50% power. Stir and microwave in 30 sec intervals as needed.
- Dip cake pops into melted chocolate and add a few pieces of crumbled bacon immediately (chocolate will harden quickly).
Dipping anything in chocolate is always fun!
While I was dipping, Charlie was helping put the bacon on the cake pops before the chocolate cooled!
