Eyeball cake pops aren't just for Halloween anymore! Think outside the box with these cute Thanksgiving pilgrim cake pops.
Step 1: Make Your Cake Pops
Start by making your cake pops and chilling them in the fridge until you are ready to start dipping.
Step 2: Dip and Decorate Your Thanksgiving Cake Pops
Remove your cake pops from the fridge, melt your dipping chocolate or candy melts according to package directions, and dip your cake pops, gently tapping them to remove excess chocolate. Stand the cake pops upright in your styrofoam block or cake pop stand to dry.
Once the chocolate has hardened, add a drop of melted chocolate to the front of each cake pop and set an M&M in it for the pupil of your eyeballs. Again, stand the cake pops upright in your styrofoam block or cake pop stand to dry.
After the chocolate has dried, the M&Ms will be secured to the front of your cake pops. Next, squirt some blue (or green) decorating gel in a circle around each M&M. Use a small, clean paint brush to spread the gel out in a neat circle to create the iris of each eyeball cake pop. Then, use another clean paint brush and red gel food coloring to paint on the veins of each eyeball (optional). One last time, stand the cake pops upright in your styrofoam block or cake pop stand to dry. I let mine dry overnight before packing them. The decorating gel never dries hard but the M&M will help keep any plastic wrap from smudging it.
