The upcoming sequel to one of our favorite foodie flicks, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, hits theaters this fall and these these sweet spaghetti and meatball cake pops are sure to be a hit at the table!
I'm a big fan of desserts that pose as dinner, and these unique treats are sure to impress. They look real enough you might even fool your friends! With the vanilla frosting, strawberry jam, chocolate and nuts, they taste like an ice cream sundae! Yum!
Yields about 12-24 cake pops (depending on the size of your cake balls)
Once it's time to decorate your cake pops, it is going to go pretty fast so it is best to have all of your ingredients ready to go beforehand. Pour your nuts and jam into small bowls and, if you want ribbons on your forks, tie those on beforehand as well (trust me, way less messy). A good time to do this is while your cake is baking. Also be sure to clear out space in the fridge or freezer if needed, as your cake pops are going to need to be chilled temporarily.
After the cake pops are dry, gently spoon on small amounts of jam letting it run down the sides of the meatball until it is covered in "sauce."
If you do not have a piping bag or frosting tip, you can use a plastic freezer bag and just snip a small hole in one corner of the bag to use to pipe your frosting.
Serve your "meatballs" and enjoy! One last note, if you aren't serving your cake pops right away, it is recommended to keep them refrigerated so that the frosting doesn't melt and run together.
