American-Style Cake Pops

These are sweets made in the American image. They're easy to eat and look cute, so everyone from kids to adults will love them!

Ingredients: makes 20 to 30

Store-bought chocolate or plain cake (you can also make yourself)
200 - 300 g
Cream cheese
200 g
Powdered sugar
as desired
Chocolate bar
4 bars (I used milk, strawberry, banana, and pistachio)
Toppings:
sprinkles as desired

Steps

1. Put the cream cheese in a bowl and use a hand mixer to mix into a soft creamy state.
2. Add the powdered sugar. Be sure to take into account the sweetness of the cake that you'll add in the next step.
3. Crumble the cake. Use a food processor or mixer to make the cake crumbly.
4. Add the crumbled cake to the cream cheese mixture and use a rubber spatula to mix well.
5. Once you have a unified shape make into bite-sized balls and line up on a baking sheet. Refrigerate.
6. Once cooled, melt the chocolate by immersing in hot water. Skewer the cake balls through the middle and dip in the chocolate to coat.
7. Use styrofoam to hold the cake pops while the chocolate coating cools.
8. Add the toppings while the chocolate is still soft. Once the chocolate has completely hardened they're finished.
