Doughnut-Hole Pops

On a recent trip to visit family, I wanted to make cake pops with my nieces and nephew along with the Munchkin. But since we were short on time and space, I decided to use doughnut holes rather than making cake balls from scratch. Genius! We got right to the dipping, decorating, and taste testing... the kids had a blast and the whole process took less than 30 minutes!

Doughnut-Hole Pops
Makes about 4 dozen

2 boxes doughnut holes (I used glazed)
2 bags melting chocolate (I used Wilton candy melts that I found at Michael's Craft store in the candy-making aisle)
1 package of paper covered lollipop sticks (also got at Michael's)

1. melt some of the chocolate as directed on package; dip one end of a lollipop stick in the chocolate and then insert into halfway into the doughnut hole. Set aside and allow to harden.
2. melt the rest of the bag of chocolate in a glass measuring cup, dip each pop in to cover completely with chocolate and then tap the stick gently on the edge of glass to get rid of excess chocolate
3. if you want sprinkles on your doughnut pops, add them now while the chocolate is still wet, they dry very quickly
4. allow the pops to dry by placing them in a foam block, or in the holes of an upside down colander (like I did). Once dry they are ready to be eaten or assembled into a little pop arrangement; store in refrigerator up to 10 days, serve cold or at room temperature
