Pirate Cake Pops

If you’ve walked into a Starbucks in the past year, you’ve probably noticed these tiny treats lining the display window.  Cake and frosting is mixed together and covered with a chocolate candy coating and of course, presented on a long lollypop stick. These fancy little treats look labor intensive, and while there are a few steps, they’re not much harder to make then a cupcake. Don’t be discouraged if you can’t get the hang of dipping the first time around, just look at my lumpy but totally still cute (and delicious!) pirates.
