    Cake Pops are so easy and kids love them! Basic versatile recipe that can be just rolled into balls, dipped and drizzled. I have used for bake sales and kid friendly events.

    The best dessert recipe in the Taste of Home catalogue in decades. A little timely though, but my grandchildren already love this timely classic :)
