recipe type: desserts
what you'll need
- 1 baked, unfrosted chocolate sheet cake (bake cake from a mix or ask grocery store bakery to give you a plain one)

let's do it
- Crumble baked sheet cake into large mixing bowl and add chocolate frosting to cake, knead until frosting and cake form dough-like consistency.
- Form dough into 1" balls and place on wax paper lined tray, freeze 30 minutes to an hour.
- Melt candy coating per package directions and insert candy stick into each cake ball.
- Dip cake ball into candy coating until completely covered and place on tray with the sticks facing sideways, allow coating to cool and harden.
- Use candy coating to apply candy eyes, beaks and seed feathers. Allow candy coating to cool and harden completely

To really make my Owl Cake Pops fly off the tray, I like to surround them with fall accents like decorative branches.
