Picture of Cake Pop Mice
Adorable little cakepop mice for any occasion!  My kids think that mice are absolutely adorable so I thought why not have some fun.  My son is an avid "Instructables" follower (WhiteTech) , and he talked me into trying a challenge.

Step 1: What you need

You just need the basic normal kitchen tools

Cake pop maker
Mixer
Bowels
Microwave safe container (for melting the chocolate)
Measuring spoons ect.....


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 egg
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:

Melting chocolate
Icing
Hersey Kisses or similar candy
Cake pop sticks
Black licorice
Almond slices.


Step 2: Making the Cake Balls

Let's start off with making the cake balls,

Directions:
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.
