1poundVanilla Candy Coating
Prepare a cake pan by lining it with saran wrap then set the pan aside.
Before you begin creating your easy cake pop squares you will need a pre-baked cake. I use a box cake mix and follow the instructions on the box; however, a homemade cake or store bought cake will work just as well.
First, use a food processor or blender to crumble the pre-baked cake. Break or cut the cake into pieces before placing it into the food processor or blender. Cover the appliance then turn it on low until the cake is nothing but crumbs.
Next pour the cake crumbs into a medium size mixing bowl then add the can of frosting and 2 tablespoons of sprinkles. Mix the crumbs, frosting and sprinkles together with a spatula until a dough-like consistency is created.
Add the doughy mixture into the prepared pan then top it with saran wrap and flatten the dough with your hands. Press the dough out to form an even layer then continue to press it down until you can no longer flatten it anymore. Remove the top layer of saran wrap then set the pan aside.
Next melt the vanilla candy coating by following the instructions on the package. Pour a layer of the melted vanilla over the top of the entire pan of the now dense cake pop bar. Shake colorful sprinkles over the vanilla layer before the candy coating hardens.
Allow time for the candy to harden on top of your easy cake pop squares then lift the edges of the plastic wrap to remove the block as one piece then cut the whole thing into bar size pieces and enjoy!
