Reprinted with written permission from the manufacturers of My little Cupcake pop. The recipe below is moulded using the round cake pop mould I have tried the mould myself. It really does work. So I was thrilled when Jeanette - the creator of the cupcake pop mould granted her permission for me to share some of her recipes. Over the next few days, I will have more great recipes for you.
These Sock monkey cake pops were from Em's daughters 10th birthday party.
These vintage inspired paper straws add a fun festiveness to these pops. (we have straws here)
I just love these! They would also be great for Christmas Pops.
The hats are red Sixlet candies.
The first thing I did was to make my shapes using My Little Cupcake's Ball Shaped Cake Pop Mold. Then I inserted the straws.
After they were all done I chilled the pops before I dipped in the next step.
I used large confetti dots for the ears.
Insert on each side of the head.
I put a small line of candy melts along the ears to give them a raised effect on the outside, so it would look more like a real ear.
Now dip entire head into your brown chocolate melts. I didn't want to make the monkeys too dark so I added some white and yellow melts to the chocolate wafers to lighten up the color.
I used black powder food color to make the eyes, eyebrows, nose and mouth. However, you can use candy melts as well.
Good luck and have fun!
