I don't want what I'm about to say to come between us, but I mean it when I say that most "cheat" food isn't worth it. Like, I'm a really good cook. Seriously, have you seen this? Or what about this? And I can't forget this. I mean, the things I can do with paleo ingredients is just...beyond. Consequently, it takes something non-paleo that's really REALLY good to make deviating from the dietary lifestyle I've chosen worth it. These lemon cake pops are worth it.
So if that first thing I said didn't come between us, this next thing probably will: I used a boxed cake mix to make these. Go ahead--SHUN MEEEEEEEE!!!!! I have it coming!! Despite my firm belief that homemade is ALWAYS better than boxed cake mix, which I've vehemently verbalized, I just couldn't bring myself to make it from scratch because I was knee-deep in a variety of other goodies for book club.In my defense, which believe me, I know I have none, I did make the icing from scratch. You see, to make cake pops, all you do is bake a cake, crumble it up with a fork, and then combine it with icing until it just barely starts to come together. Homemade frosting flavors > boxed cake mix and thus, it all turned out okay.
In case you're living somewhere Starbucks doesn't exist (and by God, I hope that's none of you), and you've never had a cake pop, they basically taste like the moistest cake you've ever had in your life coated in chocolate.
Who else has made cake pops? Do you find them a pain in the ass to make? Do you also like to eat half a dozen in one setting??
