Making cake pops or even just going to a store, or Starbucks is always a good choice. You can make a valuable amount of them. Also you don’t just have to have them for home, You can have them for a birthday party, sleepover, anything it can even be for a business too or even for holidays.

There are many choices of different treats to bring to special occasions but cake pops are always going to be better. Cake pops are just easier to handle like a lollipop, something not so messy because it’s on a stick and you don’t need to waste plates for cake or a cupcake that can fall and smear into something. Cake pops are very easy to make, they are just a piece of cake and frosting rolled into a ball and covered with melted chocolate with a little topping like sprinkles, even with just that simple there just so mouth watering. This recipe is very easy, if you’re making them for a special occasion and your rushing Cake pops would be the best option. 

When I first tried a Cake pop I wanted another one and now every time I go to Starbucks I get a Cake pop. Personally, This is one of my favorite snacks, It is easy to make but cake is always good to have/snack on. I hope you try it one day.


  • Crumble. Allow the cake to cool and then crumble in a large bowl.
  • Mix. Add a few spoonful’s of frosting and use your hands to combine. The dough should hold together if squeezed. If it’s still crumbly, stir in a little more frosting.
  • Scoop. Then scoop out the mixture with a medium cookie scoop (about 1 1/2 Tablespoons) and roll into a ball. Repeat until you’ve used all of the mixture.
  • Add cake pop stick. Melt a few of the dark and white chocolate wafers in two separate bowls. Then dip the end of the cake pop stick into the melted chocolate and push that same end into the cake ball. The melted chocolate helps “glue” the stick to the cake ball. Once each ball has a stick, place them in the freezer to harden for about 20 minutes.
  • Coat in chocolate. Melt the remaining dark and white chocolate in separate bowls. Dip the cake balls into the melted chocolate, making sure it’s fully coated. Gently tap the stick on the side of the dish to remove any excess chocolate.



Cake Pop Tips

  1. Frosting is the best part of cake, right? Well that doesn’t apply to cake pops. Too much frosting produces a super wet and greasy cake pop– not the deliciously moist pop you were expecting. This frosting recipe yields *just enough* to barely moisten those cake crumbs. Proper ratio is imperative here!
  2. The cake balls need to be extremely cold before dipping. Make sure you have enough room in your refrigerator or freezer for them. I always chill them on a large lined baking sheet.
  3. A 2-cup glass liquid measuring cup is the perfect depth for dipping the cake pops.
  4. Tinting the coating brings a fun POP of color! I usually stick to just white + one other color. Or two colors maximum. The teal color I use here is Americolor gel food coloring in teal.
  5. Sprinkles are necessary, of course. But you already knew that.
