Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake Bites

I hate to admit it but, these are the first decorative cake pops or bites I have ever made. There. I said it. I have made many round ones and I have been completely satisfied with them but, felt the need to try to be more creative. I had a lot of  fun making these chocolate covered strawberry cake bites and I plan on making more designs soon.

  1. Bake the cake by following the directions on the back of the box.
  2. When the cake is cool, crumble it into a large bowl.
  3. Then,  add the icing to the cake and gave it a good mix.
  4. Now start forming them into strawberry shapes. You might need to chill them if they get sticky.

Red Candy MeltsMelt the red candy melts in the microwave like the directions tell you to do.

Once they dry a little, use the yellow icing and a toothpick to add little yellow dots to the top.
