Cake Pop Recipe
Perfect for any party or get together, these super easy cake pops are sure to rock your world!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 35-40 cake pops
  • Devils Food cake mix {and ingredients listed on box}
  • ½ package of chocolate frosting
  • White Chocolate Candy Melts {2 bags from Michael’s}
  • Candy sticks {from Michael’s}
  • Styrofoam
  • Gel Food Coloring {NOT liquid}
  • Foil
  • Vegetable Oil Spray
  • Shortening {large spoon full}
  1. Line a large cake pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray.
  2. Follow the recipe on your cake mix and bake your cake as directed. Allow the cake to cool.
  3. Put your baked cake in a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to crumble the entire cake. Add about ½ of the package of chocolate frosting to the crumbled cake. Use your hands to mix the frosting evenly throughout the crumbled cake mix until the cake mix is well moistened. Your cake mix should be moist enough to shape into a large mound and keep its shape.
  4. Roll your cake mix into 1 inch balls using the palms of your hands. You should be able to get 35-40 cake balls from a single batch of cake mix.
  5. Pour one entire package of white chocolate candy melts into a microwave safe bowl. Follow the melting instructions on the package. *Be sure not to burn the candy melts or they will taste super yucky* Pull out your melted white chocolate and stir thoroughly with a spoon until COMPLETELY smooth. Once smooth, add a large spoon full of shortening {Crisco} to the white chocolate to thin out the consistency a bit. Stir thoroughly again.
  6. Take a cake pop stick and dip into the white chocolate about 1 inch. And then place it into the center of your cake ball. Then place your cake pop in the Styrofoam to harden.
  7. Continue with the remaining cake pops.
  8. Now coat the balls with the candy coating. The key is to place the pop in the chocolate at a sideways angle with one hand. Using the other hand, spoon the chocolate mixture all around the pop. Try to do this as quickly as possible before the chocolate begins to harden and get lumpy. Once you have evenly coated the pop, gently tap the stick on the side of the bowl to get off any excess chocolate that would drip.
  9. Use the remainder of your white chocolate for the drizzle. If you run out, make more following the steps above. Add the GEL food coloring of your choice until you receive your desired color. The liquid food coloring will immediately harden and ruin your chocolate. Fill a Ziploc bag with your colored white chocolate. Cut a small hole in one corner of the Ziploc back so that you can drizzle the colored chocolate over your pops.
  10. Now let your cake pops dry and then you are done!
UPDATE: I have just learned how to keep your cake pops from falling off the stick when you try to cover them in chocolate! After you shape the cake into little balls, put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes so they are super chilled. Then continue with the recipe. They will be “more solid” and therefor hold onto the stick better.
