Instead, try going larger! These happen to look just like an ice cream bar! Sneaky, sneaky! Did we mention they are full of caramel and macadamia nuts? Nom nom nom...
We ran across this lovely little idea over at Sugar Daze and we're sure glad we did. Although we love making cupcake pops and our kitchen has produced thousands to date, sometimes... we just don't have enough time. This idea takes the basic idea of mushing baked cupcakes or cakes with frosting to the next level by adding in tasty ingredients. In this case homemade caramel, chopped Macadamia nuts and vanilla butter cream were all mixed into a vanilla cupcake crumbs.
The "dough" is then formed into an ice cream bar shape and then frozen overnight (after inserting a stick of course). The bars are then dipped and extra toppings are added for a festive look. You could dress these bad boys up or down depending on the occasion and they could stand in a piece of foam, or easily be individually wrapped and tied for easy transport, perfect for those toting desserts via train or bus!
Check out all the details on this fun over at Sugar Daze. It's a fun twist on what is a new classic and we can't wait to try a few in our own kitchen this Halloween. Can't you just see mummies and Frankensteins? (Well, actually, we can; look out for a real mummy cake pop later today!)
