Monster Cake Pops

Monsters have invaded our home! Hiding within the walls and even in our fridge lately. No need to send the Monster hunters because I welcome the monsters with open arms. This past weekend we even threw our little monster a monster themed party and made these Monster Cake Pops that were a huge hit!

I have to say that the first time I tried making these I totally burnt the cupcakes AND put the cake pop containers together wrong. The second time was certainly the charm and I just love the way they turned out!

Aside from a Monster themed birthday party, these would be so cute to serve up at a Halloween party especially if there will be kids around. If you are making them exclusively for adults, you could actually mix some flavored rum or vodka into the frosting and serve it up that way! Sure hope your guests enjoy these as much mine did!

How to Make Monster Cake Pops:

  1. Make your cake batter according to the directions on the box. I will say that they do not provide instructions for mini cupcakes so after burning the 1st batch, I found that filling each cupcake liner about 1/3 full and baking at 325 degrees for exactly 8 minutes was the trick to getting them to bake perfectly. Adjust according to your cake pops1
  2. Remove the cupcakes from their liners. Now you are probably thinking, why not just bake WITHOUT the liners and guess what? Tried it! The blue velvet cake mix just turned an ugly brown without the liners so if you want a pretty end result, USE CUPCAKE LINERS!
  3. Start filling your treat pops. I put 1 mini cupcake then frosting and repeated until I had about an inch left at the top. This ends up taking about 3-4 mini cupcakes in each treat pop. Pro tip: Use an empty box as a holder for the treat pops. You can cut an X shaped hole into the box and slide the cake pop handle into it. It makes for easy filling!monster cake pops2
  4. Ice the “hair” or “fur” on the top of the monster cake pop. I used a large Star decorating tip and pressed firmly them pulled up to make what appeared to be as hair. You can also get the same affect with the grass cake pops3
  5. Apply googly eyes to the outside of each treat pop container. I used anywhere from 1-3 eyes on each to make each monster different.
  6. Place the caps onto the top being careful to not smear the frosting. If serving immediately you can leave the lids off. Storing in the fridge is much easier with the lids on because then you can lay them on their side on a serving tray.
  7. Serve and Enjoy!
