Gather your Ingredients

  • cake pop sticks

Mixin’ up the Cake

  • Add cake to a large bowl.
  • Crumble until it resembles fine crumbs
  • Add in frosting a little bit at a time until cake is moist and can hold a ball shape, yet still slightly crumbly.
  • Use your hands to incorporate the frosting into the cake crumbs.

  • Repeat until all the cake mixture has been rolled into balls.

Dippin’ the Cake

  • Melt 2-4 ounces of chocolate in the microwave.
  • Dip the tip of the cake pop sticks into the chocolate and insert into the cake balls about half-way.
  • Freeze for about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile prepare all of your decorating supplies.
  • Melt the remaining chocolate in a large cup. Make sure you have enough chocolate to completely submerge the cake ball.
  • Remove cake balls from freezer.
  • Dip cake balls carefully into the chocolate until covered.
  • Let the excess chocolate drip off. Swirl and tap gently if needed.

Finishing Touches

  • Add the sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet. It will harden quickly.
  • Put pops in the freezer to speed up setting time.
  • Once set, wrap and decorate as you wish then ENJOY!
