Festive Halloween Cake Pops Recipe
All images and recipe via
- 1 box cake mix (cook as directed on box for 13 X 9 cake)
- 1 can frosting (16 oz.)
- Wax paper
- Yellow candy melts(1 lb. pkg.)
- Lollipop sticks
- Edible ink pens
- After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
- Mix thoroughly with 1 can frosting. You may use the back of a large spoon, but it may be easier to use fingers to mix together. Just make sure your hands are clean.
- Roll mixture into quarter size balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50)
- Melt chocolate in the microwave per directions on package. (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)
- Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in a little of the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls. (Insert a little less than halfway.)
- Place them in the freezer for a little while to firm up.
- Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the candy coating by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don’t tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off, too.
- Place in a styrofoam block to dry.
- Once dry, draw faces with an edible ink pen and allow ink to dry! In this case, you have to be creative to form it like a friendly ghost.
- Note: I think cake pops are a little more difficult to make than the cupcake pops because of trying to get the candy coating smooth. So, If you haven’t made them before, check out this post for red velvet cake balls and this one for cupcake pops.
Also, you may not need the entire can of frosting, so you might have to prepare extra can frosting to achieve the desired output. The preparations will be surely get your countertops a bit messy but it will all be worth it.!
