      8. In a double boiler/mini crock pot/ fondue pot begin melting candy melts. See instructions on candy melts for additional melting hints

      9. To insure cake pops remain firm during dipping, remove only 6 to 8 at a time.

      10. Dip cake pop stick into melted candy 1/2 inches and insert into the center of cake ball about half way. Return to refrigerator while inserting sticks in the rest of the cookie sheet.

      11. Again removing a few at a time, dip cake pop into melted candy covering entire surface. If melted candy seems thick, add approx. 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of oil.

      12. If sticks begin turning in cake ball, place back in refrigerator to re-cool and try again.

      13. Let coated cake pops cool standing up. A piece of styrofoam works well.
