Are You A Business?
It's the warmer months and everyone's looking for easy summer dessert recipes to make on any given day.
I'm sure you've had a cake pop before, but probably not a cakesicle. You're probably wondering, what the heck the difference is? They're basically sisters, except cakesicles are way easier to make that cake pops, in my experience.
Unlike a cake pop, which is made by rolling a cake and frosting combo into a ball (or another shape) then dipping it in chocolate or candy melts, a cakesicle is created by painting melted chocolate into a "cakesicle" mold, letting it harden, then filling the hardened candy shell with the cake/frosting mixture.
Here's everything you need to make some really fun cakesicles this summer!
Simple Cakesicle Filling
The possibilities are virtually endless, you can make them for any holiday or theme you want. You can also fill them with brownie instead of cake if that's what you prefer, just mix in frosting like you would with the cake recipe.
One filling I absolutely love is edible cookie dough filled cakesicles!
Cookie Dough Filling
Combine brown sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Mix in vanilla extract and salt. Add flour; mix until a crumbly dough forms. Mix in milk. Fold in milk chocolate chips and mini chocolate chips. Scoop out 1 tablespoonful of the cake ball filling and press it into the candy shell, leaving at least 1/16 of an inch of space at the top for the additional layer of chocolate.

Here is an easy cupcake recipe to make with your kiddos!
Preheat oven to 375 F or 190 C; line muffin cups with papers. Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy (make sure the butter is room temp so the mixture doesn't clump). Beat in eggs one at a time. Add flour (mixed with baking powder and salt) alternating with milk beat well; stir in vanilla. Divide evenly among lined pans and bake for 18 minutes. Let cool in pans and then decorate with your favorite frosting.
