Ingredients for Hulk Cake Pops
Cake pop dough
Green candy melts
Straw or paintbrush handle (sturdy cylindrical object)
Styrofoam block or cake pop stand
Starting with a scoop of cake pop dough, pinch off a tiny piece and roll into a tiny log, about a dime’s width. This will be the thumb.
Roll the cake pop dough into a ball, then into an oval.
Use the thin edge of a plate or the thin edge of a flat surface to create the wrist area.
Push and roll the bottom ¼ of the oval onto and along the flat surface.
Use your flat work surface to square up the area above the wrist by gently pushing each side against the surface.
On one side, use a sturdy non-disposable straw or some kind of thin cylindrical object, like a paintbrush handle, and press it horizontally against the middle.
This forms the tip of the fingers and the palm. Use the back end of a butter knife to create three even grooves that run from the top of the fist to the fingertips.
Make sure you make the grooves wider and deeper than what would look like a normal fist.
The candy coating will fill up and sit in much of that groove space.
Refrigerate the fists and thumbs and get prepped to dip! Melt the green candy in a microwave-safe bowl or cup, gather your sticks and grab your Styrofoam block or cake pop stands.
Remove pieces from the refrigerator. They will need to sit in room temperature for a few minutes to take the chill off of them, so this is the perfect time to start assembling the pieces together.
Using the candy coating, dip one tip of the thumb and press it against the fist.
Repeat this until all thumb pieces have been attached. Since it’s cold, it will only take a few seconds to adhere and set.
After all thumbs have been attached, dip about ⅓” of a lollipop stick in candy coating, and then insert it into the bottom of the fist’s wrist area until it’s about halfway in. Do this for the remaining fists.
Time to dip! Hold the cake pop upside down and dunk into the candy coating until you see the coating cover the entire fist and meet the stick.
Then lift up to remove from the coating.
Let the excess coating drip back into the bowl using an up and down motion with your arm.
Turn it right side.
Tap off excess as needed, and then place each cake pop on the Styrofoam block or cake pop stand, allowing it to dry completely.
