My little brother is a senior at NC State in Poultry Science and somehow became the president of the Poultry Science Club. Each meeting they have a meal provided, so this week I decided to make something sweet to go along with their Dominos Pizza. The author of Bakerella came up with the cake pops I've talked about before, but here's a new addition to the cake pop collection.
The inside consists of Funfetti cake and cream cheese icing, covered in melted white chocolate and various candys for the face. The eyes are gel black icing, which I do NOT recommend if you want to individually wrap these bad boys. Of course I had to wrap each chicken with red ribbon, representing The Wolfpack! I started out with 50 pops and when I finally got them finished I only had 34....you can bet I had an upset stomach that night. Sure hope he doesn't mind the girly tray.

Canned Apple Pie Filling
about 12 lbs apples (I'm honestly not sure how many we had)
14 cups water
5 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
**You may have to alter your amount of sugar based on what type of apple you use, as some as sweeter than others. I used red delicious and yellow delicious. Using sweeter apples like Cameo, Jonathan, Fuji, or Gala might not need as much sugar. I don't recommend Granny Smiths for this recipe, you will need a lot of sugar!**
When you are ready to make a pie, just pop open a jar and put in a pastry shell and bake! Bring it on fall, I am ready :)
