For this challenge we used a recipe for Chocolate Cake Pops, but any recipe will work, or even brownie mix would work just fine!
Ingredients for the Chocolate Cake Pops:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cut buttermilk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup freshly brewed hot coffee (or espresso for stronger flavor)
For making the actual Mice part of the Cakepops:
Hersey Kisses or similar candy
Cake pop sticks
Step 2: Making the Cake Balls
1. Combine flour, sugar, coca, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Add buttermilk, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla. Using a mixer, blend until smooth.
2. Add coffee and continue mixing until coffee is evenly incorporated into mixture.
3. Fill each cooking reservoir with about 1 tablespoon of batter.
4. Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a cake pop comes out clean.
5. Take out carefully
6. Allow to cool.
Tip: If you don't have buttermilk on hand, pour 3/4 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar into a glass measuring cup. Add milk to equal 1/4 cup. Allow to stand 5 to 10 minutes, then use in place of buttermilk in this recipe.
