Amish Friendship Bread Cake Pops or Cake Balls

Prep Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 1 hour
Servings: 40-50
Yield: 40-50 pieces

Ingredients

1 baked Amish Friendship Bread
1 package cream cheese, room temperature
1 package vanilla or chocolate almond bark or colored  candy melts
Lollipop sticks, cut in half
1/3 cup crushed cookies, optional
Decorative sprinkles, colored sugar, mini-chocolate chips or crushed nuts

Directions
  1. Completely cool (4 hours or overnight) any Amish Friendship Bread.
  2. Put cake in a large bowl and break it up with your hands into small pieces.
  3. Add in cream cheese and mix into cake until well incorporated.
  4. Cover baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  5. Roll into bite-sized balls and place on baking sheet. Stick in lollipop sticks and put in freezer until firm. This sets in 30-40 minutes.
  6. When firm, melt chocolate in melting pot, double boiler or microwave bowl.
  7. Dip each ball into the chocolate until covered, tap off excess chocolate, gently. Stick into a styrofoam to keep lollipops upright.
  8. Add decorative topping right after you dip into chocolate. Top with extra chocolate for decoration once all the pops are dry.
  9. ENJOY!
Kitchen Notes

Variations:

1) Upside down cake pop: Once ball dipped into chocolate, place on baking sheet with the stick up in the air. Decorate "upside down."

2) Cake ball:  "Quickest method" Don't stick lollipop sticks into cake. Once firm, use two forks or a toothpick to dip into melted chocolate and another toothpick to push ball off onto aluminum foil. Use extra chocolate to cover the top where toothpick was inserted. Decorate.
