Cake Pops

After a recent trip to Starbucks, I was reacquainted with the beloved cake pop! Oh how I missed your tasty goodness! And with our princess tea party around the corner, now was the perfect time to make a test batch!

Supplies:
  • Cake Mix
  • Frosting
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Candy melts
  • Sprinkles
Make the cake per the box instructions. We selected strawberry since pink pops were requested.

Once the cake is cooled (I chilled mine overnight) crumble it up in a bowl. Add the frosting. I used 3/4 of the jar so they wouldn't be super creamy. Mix with your hands until throughly combined.

Roll mixture into balls and place on a cookie sheet.

Melt some of the chocolate per the directions on the package. Dip the lollipop sticks into the chocolate and insert into the cake ball. Stick in freezer for 30 minutes.

Next insert the cake ball into the melted chocolate by holding the lollipop stick and rotate until covered. Once covered, remove and tap until the excess chocolate drips off.

Immediately cover with sprinkles, sugar, coconut, m&m's or anything else you'd like to decorate with!

Enjoy!

  9. I've always wanted to try making these but have been too scared b/c my desserts always look like garbage. They taste fine, but they NEVER come out cute . . . but yours look beautiful! Maybe I'll get up the guts to give it a go sometime :-)

  21. Did you have any problems with them cracking? I made some over the weekend and 5 or 6 of my two dozen cracked. I chilled them in the fridge for 2 hours before dipping them in chocolate candy melts.
