Step 10

Melt the rest of the candy coating and dip the spoon into the coating until the cake is completely coated.

#SpoonTip: Pick a candy coating that goes with the occasion. I chose red because UNM’s colors are cherry and silver.

Step 11

Decorate spoon pops however you would like.

#SpoonTip: If using sprinkles, make sure to place them on the candy coating while it’s still wet so that the sprinkles will stick.
