MyLittleCupcake made these cupcake pops with a chocolate cake out of a box and mixed with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. I am personally a huge lover of Cream Cheese Frosting so I always suggest this frosting as your topper.
MyLittleCupcake always use my hands to mix ~it goes much faster and I like to feel the texture of the dough and make sure I am getting the consistency I like. The amount of frosting is really a personal choice. More frosting makes the dough moister and sweeter but also makes it harder to work with.
She suggests freezing the dough for a little while because it makes much easier to work with. Even after the shapes are made I put them back into the freezer and keep them chilled until I actually dip them. It seems to set the candy melts faster with less drips.
Once you have mixed your dough and made your shapes you are ready to dip. Melt green chocolate candy melts and dip the bottom of the cupcake into the melted candy covering your bottom completely. Now place your stick inside the pop.
Now melt the white candy melts. Get your sprinkles and M&M's ready. Dip the top of the cupcake into the melted white candy, sprinkle on the shamrock mix and top with a green M&M with the writing facing down. Use your styrofoam board for placing your cupcake pop to dry.
