Let me tell you, these are awesome! Took a few tries to figure out just what amount of each ingredient was needed. Betty Crocker I am not, but I was impressed at how these turned out.
2 C Sugar
1 3/4th C All-Purpose Flour
3/4 C Cocoa
1 1/2 t Baking Soda
1 1/2 Baking Powder
1 t Salt
1 C Milk
1/2 C Vegetable Oil
2 t Mint Extract
1 C Boiling Water
1 bag of cake pop sticks (you can get them from Michaels or Walmart)
Heat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a deep cookie sheet
Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl. Add your eggs, milk, oil, and mint. Beat with a mixer for 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water then pour onto the cookie sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Let cake cool in baking sheet.
Once cake is cooled cut into big squares and crumble cake into a big mixing bowl. Set aside.
1/2 C Butter
2/3 C Cocoa
3 C powdered sugar
1/3 C milk
1 t vanilla extract
Directions for frosting:
Melt butter in mixing bowl. Stir in cocoa and then alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency.
Add small amount additional milk, if needed. Stir in vanilla. About 2 cups frosting.
Directions for cake pops:
Once frosting is made, take a spoon full and add into the crumbled cake. Using a spoon to combine. Add more frosting until you can form a small round ball.
Melt Chocolate in a double broiler or you can use a microwave.
Once chocolate is melted dip a cakepop stick into the chocolate and then push it into the rounded cake. Once that chocolate has hardened, dip it into the chocolate until fully coated.
