I have a problem.

I can’t stop making these pops.
Every time I finish making a batch, I tell myself that’s it. No more. I’m done. And, then the next thing I know, I’m buying more lollipop sticks. You know, just in case. The funny thing is, I have several bags of lollipop sticks. I buy them every time I see them. And in different sizes. I don’t do this with the other supplies, just the sticks. It’s weird. I can’t explain it. I guess I’m afraid there will be a stick shortage or something.
But, don’t worry, these are the last of the Easter Cake Pops. Promise. Thanks for hanging in there with me.
Teeniny tiny. But HUGE cuteness factor.
Sugar pearls for the body and tiny hearts for the noses. The ears are brown rainbow chip sprinkles and the eyes are melted candy coating dotted on with a toothpick.
I also used this candy mix (called Licorice Bridge Mix) that I found at the Fresh Market . The buttons were for the head and the pastels, cut in half, were for the legs.
All in all… super cute. And also, super crunchy. I had never eaten sugar pearls before and thought they were too high on the crunch to cake ratio for me. But, if you like crunchy cake, you’re set.
Now, if you don’t like crunchy cake, then you might want to try these instead.
So, I lied. These are the last of the Easter Cake Pops.
Little bunny bodies. I about ran out of steam on these. I think you can tell by the effort I put into their faces. But, that’s okay, because their bottoms are so cute.
Little bunny bottoms! Can you stand it? You want to bite them, don’t you?
Want to make some? Read the basic cake pop instructions  first and then use the decorating tips below for the bunnies and sheep.
Sheep Cake Pops
White Candy Melts 
Sugar pearls 
Licorice Bridge Mix  (buttons for heads and pastels cut in half for legs)
Tiny Heart Sprinkles  (noses)
Rainbow Chip Sprinkles  (ears)
Paper Lollipop Sticks 
Styrofoam Block 
Note: sprinkle the sugar pearls over a big bowl because these little guys are hard to catch. I’m still finding them in odd places.
Bunny Cake Pops
Note: The tic tacs worked for the size, but feel free to try something else with a less minty surprise.
And now, I’m outta here. I need to go buy more sticks. You know, just in case.
