Pine Cone Cake Bites
Cake pop filling is transformed into realistic glittery pine cones in this 3 ingredient, no bake project. A chocolate mold makes these treats fool proof and edible copper dust dresses them up for a bit of elegance. Use Cakegirls Cake Pop Recipe or your own favorite cake pop recipe to fill these yummy treats.
STEP 1: COAT THE MOLD
Prepare the cake pop filling or use your favorite recipe.
Next, melt some of the chocolate candy coating in the microwave on half power, in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each interval. Remove before completely melted and continue to stir until melted (Do not overheat).
Use a paint brush to dab a layer of coating inside of each cavity of the mold about 1/4" thick. Place in the fridge for 5 minutes to harden. Remove the mold from the fridge and dab a little extra coating to fill in any thin areas or areas that you missed.
STEP 2: FILL AND SEAL
Next, press a scoop of cake pop filling inside each cavity, leaving a gap at the top for sealing the mold. Remelt the coating if necessary and spread some on the back of each cavity in order to seal in the filling. Gently tap the mold on the counter to release any air bubbles and place the in the freezer for 15 minutes. Flip and pop out pine cones. If you have any pieces of overhanging coating, just use your fingers to break off the little pieces and to clean up the edges.
STEP 3: FINISH WITH LUSTER DUST
Let pine cones come to room temperature and place them on a piece of wax paper. Use a paintbrush to dab some dry copper luster dust on the outside tips of the pincone to give them shimmer and to hightlight the texture.
