Easter Chicks (Part 1)

Happy Easter!
As part of our Easter dinner today, my sister and I made these adorable Easter chick cake pops to share.  I don't want to brag, but they really are super cute. And I can't take all the credit, because our idea came from Bakerella's cake pop recipe book. But still, just look at how sweet they are...

 Aren't they just the sweetest little things?!

I know after seeing how great they are, you'll all be wanting to make them for next year, so here's a quick little lesson on how to make your own...

You will need:

Cookie Dough Balls or Cake Balls
Yellow Candy Melts, Rainbow Chip Sprinkles, Any Size Lollipop Sticks 

 {For a lesson in cake ball making, check here. For cookie dough without eggs, just substitute milk.}

Six Easy Steps:
  1. Melt the yellow candy chips, and dip your cake balls.
  2. Let them harden all the way.
  3. Using a toothpick and a little bit of the melted candy, attach 2 yellow rainbow chips on the sides for the wings.
  4. Add an orange rainbow chip for the beak.
  5. Choose 2 orange sprinkles (flowers, leaves, stars) and stick them on for the feet.
  6. Use an edible marker pen to make the eyes, or put on 2 black rainbow chips.
To make a cute centerpiece, arrange them in a couple of jars and attach some cute Easter signs with ribbon. They will be festive decorations for your Easter table, a tasty dessert, and a good reminder of why we celebrate Easter!
