Classic Chocolate Cake Pops

Chocolate Cake Pops via elisebakesFor my niece’s birthday last weekend, I made cake pops (and carrot cake – that post should be up soon).  I was very short on time, so I have to admit to using a box mix and store-bought frosting.  The good thing is that with cake pops, they’re still delicious!  The ones I brought to my niece’s birthday had pink and purple sprinkles, these red and white ones (Go Badgers!) I gave to my friends who graduated from UW with me this weekend!

  • 1 9×13 chocolate cake
  • 3/4 containter of frosting
  • 1 package of Wilton candy Melts (I used vanilla)
  1. Crumble cake in a large bowl until no large pieces remain.
  2. Add the frosting and mix with the back of a wooden spoon (or your hands) until combined throughout.   The consistency should be such that you can form balls that hold their shape without cracking or crumbling.
  3. Form balls with your hands from the mixture, or use cake pop molds.  Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes or so to let them firm up.
  4. Melt candy melts in the microwave according to the package directions.
  5. Dip a stick into the candy melts and insert into cake pop. Let that harden for a minute.
  6. Then dip the pop into the candy coating to cover it entirely.   Cake Pops via elisebakes
