Serves: 45-50
Cake pops are easy to make and can be flavored and decorated to match any party theme or special occasion.
  • Cake, crumbled
  • Frosting, to taste
  • Chocolate bark and/or Wilton's colored chocolate candy melts
  • Sprinkles and other decorations
  • Lollipop sticks
  1. Once your cake has cooled, crumble it into pea-sized or smaller pieces.
  2. Mix in the frosting a spoonful or two at a time, adding just enough so that when rolled the cake mixture stays in balls without crumbling apart.
  3. Roll the dough into balls and place them on a wax paper-lined cookie sheet.
  4. Refrigerate them for 15-30 minutes.
  5. Melt a small portion of chocolate and dip the ends of each lollipop stick into the chocolate.
  6. Immediately insert a chocolate-dipped lollipop stick into each cake ball so that it is inserted about half way through the cake ball.
  7. Place the cake pops back onto the waxed paper and freeze them for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  8. Melt the remaining chocolate and candy melts in deep glasses or bowls.
  9. Working with one cake pop at a time, dunk it in the chocolate and swirl it around until the chocolate covers the cake pop up past the point where the chocolate-dipped stick is inserted into the cake.
  10. Swirl it and tap off any excess chocolate.
  11. Decorate them with sprinkles and other decorations if desired.
  12. Place them in a short glass or in styrofoam with holes poked in it to allow them to dry completely.
