Key Lime Cake Pops

Becky has always been the cake pop master. And I have always been the master of eating said cake pops. Our brains have been focused on St. Patrick’s Day this whole month, so we wanted to try out a green cake pop. These turned out absolutely delicious and so very key limey!

Recipe: Approximately 36 Cake Pops

Ingredients:
1 Box Vanilla Cake Mix ( made with 3 Eggs, 1/2 Cup Key Lime Juice, 1/2 Cup Water + 1/3 Cup Canola Oil)
1/4 to 1/3 Cup Vanilla Icing
1 Tablespoons Key Lime Juice
12 to 16 Ounces-Light Green Candy Melts
Lollipop Sticks
Lime Zest

  1. Prepare vanilla cake recipe per boxes instructions. Our cake recipe called for 3 eggs, 1 cup of water, and 1/3 cup of oil but we traded out half of the water for key lime juice.
  2. Once the cake has baked and cooled, remove from pan and crumble in a medium-large bowl.
  3. Mix cake crumbles with the remainder of key lime juice and enough vanilla icing to easily roll the mixture (we used 1/3 cup). Roll into balls and chill.
  4. Melt candy melts and dip the tip of each of the lollipop sticks. Place the dipped end of the lollipop stick partially into each cake ball and chill.
  5. Once cake balls have been chilled, ensure candy melts are still completely melted and dip entire cake ball into candy.
  6. Sprinkle with lime zest and let the candy melt harden while cake pop is upright.
  7. Eat. Enjoy. Yum.

Kiss Him, He’s Irish Ice Cream Float

Is that not the right saying? Oh, whoops. Becky and I may not be Irish, but I have been lucky enough to nail one down with my mister (Patient Zero). Every year we get to celebrate his red-bearded, sweater wearing, beer drinking heritage and this year we are doing it big with this majestic and delicious beverage. It may look like someone put planet earth in a cup, but it tastes just like a creamsicle and this Welsch/English girl is into it. Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day, folks and be safe!!!

Recipe: Makes one drink.

Ingredients:
1 Cup Orange Juice
1 Shot Gin
1 Shot Blue Curacao

  1. Mix all the ingredients. Stir. Drink. Enjoy!
