mini hostess sno ball cake pops.....!


....so as soon as i heard that hostess was filing for bankruptcy for the 2nd time....i kinda panicked......because one of my guilty pleasures is their hostess sno balls.....

....you know these things....


....i was thinking of stocking up on some sno balls....but figured i'd do some mini ones which have been on the "to do" list for awhile now.....

.....does anyone else besides me and my sister really love these things?....something about chocolate cake with creme filling covered in marshmallow and coconut...!....even made big "balls" here (haha)....so of course had to try them mini as well....

....do the cake pop thing.....start with chocolate cake....crumble and mix with some chocolate frosting....then shape into half circles like the sno balls.....


...using "the cone" method described in this post.....cut out some of the cake mixture to add some creme filling....


....i had some leftover coconut buttercream that i mixed with a little marshmallow fluff for this.....then close the hole with the cake mix you removed....


....add a stick if you like and freeze....then dip just the top in some vanilla candy melt/wafter/almond bark....whatever you use....


....and immediately cover in the tinted flaked coconut....(sweetened coconut tinted by adding a little food gel to a zip lock baggie with the coconut).....


....and you get some.....

.....the traditional pink sno balls are my favs.....but i really like the pastel colors too....and they would work for a spring party or even easter too....!...plus did i mention they are mini sno ball cake pops....??
