Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake Pops

Nothing says “sweet” like a Chocolate Covered Strawberry.

They’re a reminder of early summer and fond memories of U-Pick farms and time with loved ones, for me.

With the temperature cooling off in the East, while shooting up to record highs in the West, I thought the perfect dessert for both occasions would be a play on one of summer’s most popular treats.

These cake pops are light, fruity, and decadent with their dark chocolate coating. Try them out this week for a reminder of the best days of summer.
