What I used:
I used chocolate cake and chocolate frosting but will definitely try a different flavor next time. I used mini and regular size chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth. I'm going to buy edible markers in the future.
I used Bakerella's recipe from Martha Stewart and watched her video to pick up any other tips she had. I will definitely spend more time mixing next time. I now understand the consistency she goes for. I'll also buy two bags of the melting chips (craft store baking section) and a deep bowl for dipping. We ran out thus the partially dipped pops with sprinkles. You can see I used a box to stand my finished pops but will be buying Styrofoam for next time.
This next week, I'll be making the eyeballs featured on Bakerella's site. Photos to come.
Do you have any holiday treats up your sleeve?
