You'll woo your sweetheart with these delightful cake pops! You'll woo your sweetheart with these delightful cake pops!
Number of Servings: 32


    1/2 chocolate cake, made from a mix
    1/2 tub of chocolate frosting
    about 4 tbsp chocolate sprinkles
    3/4 bag Wilton chocolate candy melts

    You will also need lollipop sticks, a sheet of 1 inch styrofoam, and/or other decorations.


After baking the cake, let cool. (I use half of a sheet cake for this recipe.)
Crumble the cake in a large bowl and add room temperature frosting. Mix well.

Line a cookie tray with wax paper or parchement paper. Roll the mixture into quarter sized balls and space evenly on tray. Put them in the freezer for one hour, or fridge for a few hours.

When they are solid, melt the candy in a deep narrow container, like a mug. Dip the tip of a lollipop stick in the melted candy and poke into the cake ball. Let harden while you do the others.

Dip the entire cake pop in the candy melts to coat and roll in sprinkles (or sprinkle a few on top). Stick into styrofoam to dry/harden.

Store in the freezer.

I like to put mine in small plastic bags with a bit of ribbon tied around for bake sales, or for the kids at school. If you do these for a party, no need to cover them.

There is a multitude of ways to decorate these, but when you first try to make them, covering in sprinkles is a good idea to cover any drips in the chocolate.

Serving Size: Makes 32 cake pops

    I made cake balls from a similar recipe for a party - never again. Too much work & they are overly sweet - nobody liked them. They're not candy/not cake. For a few more calories, I could eat 3 Dove Dark Promises & be a lot more satisfied. - 8/17/15

    I'm not much of a chocolate fan, but I like desserts so I made these. Everyone at work enjoyed them, but to me, they were a bit too sweet. Think I'll stick with mini-cupcakes. - 2/7/15

    This sounds yummy! I'm going to try it with peanutbutter icing instead of chocolate to please my family. Thanks for the treat! - 4/21/11
