One Eyed Monster Cake Pops

It has been said: when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  Well, we say when you overheat your modeling chocolate, make One Eyed Monsters. Baking often involves adapting and coming up with new and creative ways to salvage your food even if you make a mistake.  Luckily for us this time, we had some store bought eye balls and some helpers who weren't afraid to get their hands dirty.

If you haven't made cake pops before check out Cake Pops 101 to get the step by step.

To make the wild and nonuniform chocolate covering,  just dip the cake pops and mess up the surface with a spoon or your fingers.

Then we stuck on the eyes which we purchased from Target. I'm sure you could make your own eyes but we thought these were pretty good looking plus for 75+ eyes we paid $3.

There's really no rhyme or reason to the way we made these.  Just stick on a couple eyes and it should do the trick.

 Desperate times call for desperate measures, and over heated modeling chocolate is a pretty rough place.  However when in doubt, don't be afraid to take a breathe, let your chocolate cool, and find another creative solution to your cake pop struggles.
