These pops can be a great idea for a bridal shower favor for your guests.

1. Prepare the cake mix as per instructions on the box.
2. Bake cake at 350 degrees. Once cake is baked, set to cool.
3. Once cake is cool, crumble it in a large mixing bowl.
4. Mix the crumble cake together with the vanilla frosting.
5. Once mixed, place it in the refrigerator for about half an hour.
6. Roll the cake into balls. Once rolled, place them in the freezer for about an hour.
7. Once you have your cake balls rolled in the freezer, start melting the chocolate.
8. Remove the cake balls from the freezer.
9. One at a time get a lollipop stick and dip the stick about 1/2 inch of the tip into the melted candy coating and
then insert the lollipop stick straight into a cake ball, pushing it no more than halfway through. Hold the cake ball
and turn it back and forth or softly tap it, so the excess chocolate falls off. Place cake pops in the refrigerator to dry out completely.
Once dry you can wrap it individually.

    What is an easy way of making the decoration when doing lines?

  • Annette

    These are so cute and yummy! My niece made some for my daughter’s baby shower. Since we were doing it with a Michigan theme, they made some yellow and some blue. They put them on long sticks and stuck them in blue oblong buckets with Easter grass in them. Too cute!

    you need to rewrite the last part of this recipe. you miss the entire “dip cake pop in chocolate part” just needs one more sentece.

  • Rachel Ramos

    Just getting started in making cake pops went to my nieces birthday party and seen these little cake pops and thought that was the most interesting dessert and so excited can’t wait to start making my own and having lots of fun with them and sharing it with everyone.

    Has anyone ever used icing instead of chocolate for the outer coating. I am making them for my son’s 4th birthday and he doesnt like chocolate.

  • Shannon Tual

    Hi Sara,

    These are candy melts, not chocolate. I’ve never used icing, but you can use Almond Bark, comes in white.

    Hello ladies, if you need to get more info abou these cakepops you can follow my site.

    Sara – first thing that comes to mind is using melted fondant… I’ve dipped cupcakes in this before, comes out like a smooth glaze almost. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work for cake pops? You could always give it a couple coats. Just a thought!

    PS love these little cake pops! Have to do super mario themed cupcakes for a bridal shower (don’t ask…) but considering throwing some of these in as a (more traditional!) bonus.

  • jen trivelli

    What did you use to make the bow ties for the tux?

  • http://n/a Debi

    my question is about the cake pops that look like cupcakes. What is the mold you used and where can I find one. Love you pops!!!

    Thanks in advance for your response.

  • Ana

    1# cake pop makrer in America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lisa

    Great Idea!! About how many does one box of cake mix make? I am planning to make these for my wedding favors.

  • Debbie

    For those of you still having trouble with the melts being too thick, The candy supply stores that sell the melts usually have glycerine chips to stir in and melt. Add a little at a time to get the right thickness. I have not used the liquid glycerin, but it should work, too. Walmart sells this with the icing colors as it is used to thin those, too. Hope this helps.

    • Abuttray

      Regular cooking oil works as well.

    • Funnyfarmerswife

      You can add shortening to the candy melt, or chocolate to thin it to a good dipping consistency

  • Meaghan

    I have been wanting to make these. I make rum balls and they sound very simillar. The only difference I notice is you dont have to dry out the cake and no rum. I wonder if I can make a combination of these for my birthday???

  • kristin

    For chocolate/melts that are too thick, you can also use corn syrup just a touch to thin it out

  • Cindy

    How long on average do the cake pops last if giving them as a gift?

  • Cabroyles

    Would like to make these for a wedding how far in advance can you make these and/or freeze and they still taste fresh?

  • Ola Tate

    can you make this for any party

  • QC Supermom

    It’s great you are able to do these also. By any chance, did you write this blog or do you work w/ the lady that did?

  • Lori Wright Houldsworth

    can’t see a reply to question..can they be frozen

    • Christy Leigh Cudmore

      You can freeze them without the chocolate coating.
