Snow Pops

     One of the first things that popped into my mind when coming up with a dessert menu for the Frozen party was some sparkly sprinkly yummy white cake pops!  So that's what I made for all the little princesses.  They were a BIG hit!
Recipe adapted from Divas Can Cook

What you need:

Any flavor cake, prepared according to box (I used a White Cake mix)
Vanilla Frosting 
2 packages melting chocolates (I used the Wilton Bright White Candy Melts)
Cake pop sticks (I found these at Hobby Lobby)
White sugar sprinkles

How to make them:

Make the cake according to the box instructions and let cool completely.
Then add the cake to a large bowl.
Crumble the cakes until it resembles fine crumbs.
Add in the frosting a little bit at a time until the cake is moist and can hold a ball shape, yet still slightly crumbly.
Use your hands to incorporate the frosting into the cake crumbs.
Use a mini ice cream scoop or melon baller, scoop out some cake, roll and shape into tight balls.
Roll the rest of the mixture into tight balls and place on a plate or a mini muffin pan.
Melt 2-4 oz of the melting chocolate in a microwavable safe bowl.
Dip the tip of a cake pop stick into the melted chocolate then insert it into the cake ball about half way, repeat with the remaining balls.
Freeze for about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the decorating supplies.
Melt the remaining chocolate in a large microwavable bowl or cup (30 seconds at a time on 50% power, stirring each time after you take it out ), make sure you have enough chocolate to complete submerge the cake ball.
Remove the cake balls from the freezer.
Dip the cake balls carefully into the melted chocolate until covered.
Let the excess chocolate drip off, swirl and tap gently if needed.
Add the sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet (if hardens quickly).
Stick the decorated cake pop into a styrofoam block to finish setting.
Place into the refrigerator to speed up setting time, if needed.
When completely harden, set out to enjoy.
Can cover with a clear treat bag and ribbon to hand out as gifts or store them in a single layer in an air tight container or freeze them.
