Cake pops are cute and delicious; making them the perfect snack to serve at a party! Crumble a prepared chocolate cake in a bowl until it resembles fine crumbs. Add in the chocolate frosting until the cake is moist. Roll the mixture into a tight ball and insert a stick about half way into it. The kids can help you dip the ball into melted chocolate (white or black) and decorate it with sprinkles! Place the cake pops in a glass, and place them in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Enjoy!
