Cake Pops


•1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
•1 can frosting (16 oz.)
•Wax paper
•Candy melts (1 lb. pkg.)
•Candy decorations
•Lollipop sticks

Bake cake according to directions and cool completely

Crumble Up Cake

Using hands, or a fork, crumble cake into a large bowl. I used a butter-rich cake batter. Next time, I'd use another mix, as this one was actually too moist.

Add in Frosting

Add in one container of frosting a little bit at a time and mix thoroughly, using the back of the spoon or your hands

Mix Until Evenly Distributed

Roll Into Balls

Roll mixture into balls of your desired size and place on wax paper

Add Sticks

Insert sticks a little less than halfway into the cake balls. Place in the freezer to firm up.

Melt Candy Coating

Using a microwave or double boiler, melt the candy coating.

Melt Thoroughly

Ensure the candy is thoroughly melted

Coat Cake Balls

Dip cake balls into the candy coating by slowly rotating the lollipop stick until the ball is covered. Remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Coat in sprinkles, sugar, or other toppings. Store pops right-side-up in styrofoam or place head down on wax paper for different result. The results were a bit overwhelmingly sweet for my taste, but the kids loved them!
