What You Need:
- Chocolate cake mix
- 8 oz. softened cream cheese
- 1 tablespoons milk
- 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
- 4 tablespoons softened butter
- Plastic wrap
- White chocolate chips
- Blue, red and black gel icing
- Baking tray
- Wax paper
- Double boiler
What You Do:
- Follow the baking directions to make your cake. Allow it to cool or refrigerate overnight.
- In a bowl, crumble the cake using a fork or your fingers.
- Whip together cream cheese, butter, sugar and milk and pour it into the cake crumbs.
- Mix well. If the cake is still too crumbly to form into balls, add one tablespoon of milk until it's a soft clay-like consistency. Cover with plastic and refrigerate overnight.
- Cover a baking tray with wax paper and roll the cold cake mixture into balls the size of golf balls and set them onto the paper.
- In a double boiler, melt the white chocolate chips. (If you don’t have a double boiler, use two pots on top of one another; the bottom pot should have two cups of water in it. Set it on medium heat.)
- As soon as the white chocolate looks shiny, remove it from the heat and mix immediately.
- Dip the cake balls in the white chocolate and coat them by using a toothpick to move them around. Set them on the wax paper to dry.
- Place the tray of dipped eyeballs in the fridge for an hour to set them.
- Squeeze a small circle of blue gel on the top of the chilled cake pop. Fill in the center of the circle with a dot of black gel. Use the red gel to create squiggly red veins.
- Carefully, poke a straw into the bottom of the eyeball and place it in a clear glass to serve.
