Candy Apple Cake Pops

Candy Apple Cake Pops

 

When I think of Halloween, I think of candy apples.  I couldn't help thinking what it would be like to have a candy apple cake pop.  I wondered if it would really work?  Dunking soft, moist cake into hot sugary syrup.  I decided to make the cake pops using my Babycakes cake pop maker.  This amazing machine makes soft, cake-like balls.  I thought these would hold up in the candy apple syrup better than the cake balls using cake and icing.  And wow, was I thrilled with the results!  The crunch of the candied apple syrup and then a bite of soft spice cake is such a unique and addicting taste. These Candy Apple Cake Pops will be a perfect addition to any Halloween celebration!

 

 

Candy Apple Cake Pops
1 box Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup oil
4 eggs

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl (batter will be thick).  Using a small cookie scoop, fill each reservoir.  Bake for 4 minutes.  Remove to cooling rack and repeat with remaining batter.  Makes about 4 dozen.

 

Candied Apple Syrup
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring

Line a baking sheet with buttered parchment paper; set aside. Insert sticks into cake balls; set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, water, corn syrup and food coloring. Bring to a boil over high heat.  Once boiling, reduce to medium-high heat. Insert candy thermometer and continue to boil until temperature reaches hard crack stage (between 300-310 degrees), about 20 minutes.  When mixture reaches temperature, immediately remove from the heat. Working quickly dip cake pop in sugar mixture (careful not to twist) until completely coated.  Let excess drip then transfer to prepared baking sheet and allow to cool.
