Dear Cake Pops, Let's Make New Friends!

   Tonight I got to meet some great ladies at the HT-28 spouses squadron party!  

   For all you non-military people out there, there are three different helicopter training squadrons down here at NAS Whiting... and just like Beau was in VT-2 while he flew fixed wing earlier this year (the super cool T-34 that I got to drive!  Check out my post on it here!), he's now in HT-28.  

   So anyways, long story short, I decided it was time to meet some military spouses!  I am desperate need of friends down here in good old Milton... don't get me wrong - the hubs is awesome and the doggies are super cool - but some other human interaction would be nice too haha!

  Whenever someone hosts a get-together, I always feel the need to bring a treat... a sweet one of course!  So I decided to make cake pops!

   Our lovely host Julie hosted a Margarita party so I thought I'd try my hand at making "Margarita Pops" complete with a melted candy lime and salt (aka sugar) around the top.
I didn't use sparkling sugar so it was too fine and  blended in with the light
green colored melting chocolate.  With the correct sugar (it's coarser than
granulated sugar) it will make a nice statement on this pop! 
   I covered the rest of the pops in melted bittersweet chocolate.  The perfect pair with the gluten free vanilla cake mix inside  :-)
  The hubs suggested I place them in martini glasses to make them look extra cute.  Excellent idea!

   I left the party with empty martini glasses.  Success!  

Cheers to new friends!
