Christmas Cake Pops

As I’m writing this, I’m suffering from a pretty intense sugar rush. I’m feeling loopy and slightly tipsy, which is is odd because these effects happened rather suddenly. You see, I made cake pops similar to the ones I made for Halloween last year. I used moist white cake mix and a can of buttercream frosting for the filling. Then, I melted white chocolate chips for the coating. However, there were two cake pops that didn’t coat as smoothly as I would’ve liked, so I ate both of them pretty quickly, i.e. within 10 seconds of each other. After eating these two coated cake pops, I started to feel woozy and light-headed! The funniest part is that I wasn’t drinking at all! I was surprised by this feeling, especially since it happened approximately 1 minute after I had eaten the two messed up cake pops, so I immediately stopped the coating process and just left the rest of the cake pops uncoated, which I kind of like. Instead, I rolled them in some red and green sugar crystals. They’re sort of like cake bonbons.

Anyway, as for the lucky few cake pops that ended up with decent coating, I managed to decorate them as well with red and green sugar crystals. I was planning on making some with blue sprinkles in honor of my Jewish readers, but the sugar rush occurred before I could do so.

Feel free to make these cake pops! They’re all the rage, and I highly recommend eating the cake crumb and frosting balls without the coating. It’s like eating soft and moist mini cake bites.

*Disclaimer: Yummy Chunklet does not condone the effects of a sugar rush while cooking and baking. However, if it occurs unexpectedly, there’s absolute nothing wrong with that! Also, if you mean to do so, that’s fine too!

    I have never tried a cake pop ! Ridiculous right? But that does not stop me from making my own and trying these cuties out.

    Sugar rush– I am immune to it. My body can consume colossal amount of sugar without any rush but all that shows on my waistline.

    So festive! Like the idea of leaving them uncoated, too.

    I love a sugar rush…it’s way better than a caffeine rush in my opinion. I suddenly have loads of energy! As I did last night after consuming a large number of dark chocolates and raisins.

    Love the cake pops…they are too cute.

    These sound very crazy – the word pops suggests alcohol, such as in alcopops. Am I right, or were you KO’d by the sugar alone?

    So festive, I love these! I can understand why you’re on a sugar high. I’m pretty sure I would be too. 😉

    I actually tried the Halloween cake pops last year and they indeed induced a very lovely sugar rush! These looks just as “yummy” and I love the idea of a cake bon-bon…too bad there was no ice cream to round out the sugar rush experience..LOL!

    Love this post and love that the cake pops look really yummy without the coatings. I guess I’ve become immune to eating too much sugar. I ate almost 2 dozen cookies yesterday before I worked very hard and forced myself to stop. I never thought about all the sugar I ate, but I did think about all that butter. Your post made me smile…thanks!

    I’m very sensitive to sugar too so I know exactly how you were feeling!! They look adorable! I’d probably make them in both versions, coated and uncoated..but thanks to your tip, I’ll just eat the uncoated!!!
