I scream, you scream...

But that's not really ice cream.

It's a cake pop! And it's gloriously delicious and tummy-ache-inducing-ly rich.

And did I mention very easy to make?

Shopping list:
Your favorite cake mix (I know, I used a box! Can you believe it?)
A can of frosting
Melting chocolate
Ice Cream cones

Bake the cake as per directions. Allow it to cool completely, then dump the whole cake out into an over-sized mixing bowl. Empty the contents of the frosting can into the same bowl and mash it all together. It won't look pretty, but that's ok. Once the frosting and cake crumbs are completely mixed together (is it the frosting coating the cake, or the crumbs coating the frosting? I can't tell), pick up small clumps and roll them into balls. Drop the balls onto a cookie sheet. Put the cookie sheet in the freezer for at least an hour, or overnight if you choose. On the stove, slowly melt your chocolate. I usually add some milk or cream to help make it smoother and burn less. When the cake balls are frozen, dip them in the chocolate to coat them. Add sprinkles before the chocolate hardens. Then pop them into ice cream cones and you're done! Store in the fridge.

These particular tasty things are funfetti cake with funfetti ice cream, coated in white chocolate. They were for Liz for watching the pups while we were in Utah and for our church kiddos. I think we just became very popular Sunday school teachers.
