When you’re hosting a movie night this March Break, chances are you’ll be serving popcorn. Continue the theme with this fun centerpiece, suggest authors of The Big Book of Babycakes Cake Pops Recipes, Kathy Moore & Roxanne Wyss.

 

Tip

When cutting the marshmallows into two pieces, cut pieces of various sizes. The cake pops will look more like popcorn if the marshmallows are not in perfect halves.

 

Ingredients

             White candy coating wafers

8            White Cake Pops             8

40 to 45 mini marshmallows, each cut into two pieces (see tip)      40 to 45

1            bag unpopped yellow popcorn            1

Materials

8            cake pop sticks            8

8 feet     red metallic curling ribbon, cut into 12-inch (30 cm) lengths            240 cm

1            popcorn container (about 8 inches/20 cm tall)         1

1            Styrofoam block  (about 8 by 2 by 2 inches/20 by 5 by 5 cm)          1

 

1.            Melt 1⁄4 cup (60 mL) white candy coating wafers and use to attach sticks to cake pops. Freeze cake pops for at least 15 minutes to set. Reserve the remaining candy coating.

2.            Add 1 cup (250 mL) white candy coating wafers to the reserved white coating and melt until smooth. Coat cake pops. Immediately arrange marshmallow halves, cut side down, over cake pops, making them look like popcorn. Set in a cake pop stand to dry.

3.            Tie a length of ribbon in a knot around each cake pop stick. Slide the knots up to just below the cake pops. Use a scissors blade to curl the ribbons.

4.            Measure the dimensions of the popcorn container and trim the Styrofoam to fit snugly and be about 1 inch (2.5 cm) shorter than the container. Place Styrofoam in the container and cover it with unpopped popcorn. Push the cake pop sticks into the Styrofoam, arranging the cake pops decoratively.
