While I was on my trip to the Duncan Hines test kitchens I made an awesome new friend named Natalie who gave me a gift, cosmos creations! I had never heard of this snack until then. Cosmos is baked corn (I love corn!) that comes in different flavors like caramel, cinnamon, sea salt w/ butter, and my favorite salted caramel! It also happens to be gluten free & made where I live, OREGON! I wanted to create a recipe using this new (to me) snack so I came up with these cake pops, Enjoy!

To make these pops you will need the following things

– Chocolate cake mix
– Salted caramel Cosmos Creations
– Chocolate almond bark
-Duncan Hines Frosting creations base & caramel packet
– Caramel drizzle, I melted left over Duncan Hines frosting creations caramel for my drizzle
– Cake pops sticks, I used popsicle sticks
– Foam block for drying

Bake your cake & allow to cool
Once the cake has cooled crumble it into a large mixing bowl
Add small amounts of caramel frosting to the crumbled cake until it forms a dough like texture
Using a scoop or spoon remove some of the mixture and roll into balls
chill balls in the freezer for 5-10 minutes
While the balls are chilling take this time to chop up your cosmos
Remove balls from freezer
Melt chocolate almond bark according to package directions
Dip the tip of a stick into the melted almond bark, insert about halfway into your ball & allow to dry
Once the sticks have dried submerge the entire cake pop into the chocolate almond bark
Tap off the excess chocolate
Before the chocolate starts to dry sprinkle your chopped cosmos on your pop
Place your pops on a foam block to dry and allow the pops to harden completely
Drizzle caramel & chocolate on your cake pops, allow to harden

That’s it! Now you have a delicious salted caramel cake pop that was incredibly easy to create! You can take this recipe and alter it to fit any of the other cosmos flavors as well 🙂

    I think you’re brilliant! You have so many great ideas! Usually, if I open a bag of Cosmos, I eat it all; but, I think this is a real clever idea and my kids would probably really enjoy making these. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
