When I think of New Years Eve parties the first thing that comes to mind is sparkle! Sequins is must in my outfit, but why just wear something glitzy when you can wow party-goers with a confection that is just as festive. Cake pops are pretty much the cutest way possible to eat desert, so I came up with a few delicious recipes with COFFEE-MATE  for anyone with the baking bug this holiday. And the best way to top off your Ball Drop Cake Pops? Edible glitter! After you frost your cake, brush on a little sugar water and cover each pop with edible glitter. Sparkle never looked so good! Step and ingredients after the break…ispydiy_cakepop1

Chocolate Peppermint Mocha Cake Pops *Makes about 40 pops*

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup hot brewed coffee
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon  baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup softened, unsalted butter
3/4 sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1/3 cup COFFEE-MATE Peppermint Mocha Flavored Creamer
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup frosting

If you have a cake pop maker, spray it with nonstick baking spray. If not, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk together cocoa and coffee.
In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
In a medium bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add sugar, mix well. Add an egg, then an egg yolk, mixing well after each addition.
Whisk creamer and vanilla into cocoa mixture.
Alternatively, add flour mixture and cocoa mixture to butter mixture, making three additions of flour and two of cocoa. Mixed until combined.

If you have a cake pop maker, fill the wells with batter and bake for 4 minutes. If not, pour batter into cake pan and bake for 40 minutes. Let cake cool and then crumble it into small pieces. Take a dollop of frosting and mold crumbs into a round cake pop.

  2. So cute! I love the purple color!

  3. Amazing! When I first saw those I thought they were ornaments. Still can’t believe they are edible – too pretty to eat. These would be really cute in silver for New Years.
