As the cake pops cook, steam will be discharged from the Cake Pop Maker and this is normal. The cake pops will take approximately 4 minutes to cook and should be well risen and springy to touch. When the cakes are ready, switch the Cake Pop Maker off at the mains then leave. Take each of the chilled cake pops and dip into the white chocolate, allowing it to drip off a little over the bowl. Dip into the sprinkles, then stand upright in a mug to dry at room temperature for an hour, or in the fridge for 30 mins.Learn how to make cake pops the easy way with cake mix with these easy step by step instructions with photos!
Today I am showing you how to make Cake Pops using cake mix. These little nuggets of cake dipped in chocolate have become a huge trend.
Charles says that he likes them because you can have just a taste of dessert without committing to eat an entire piece of cake or a cupcake. (My opinion? Life is short, eat a whole piece of cake!)
Cake pops are prepared by baking a cake, mashing it up, mixing in frosting, rolling it into a balls, putting it on a stick, and dipping it in chocolate. The flavor combinations are endless, and you can decorate them with colored sprinkles or dunk them in colored white chocolate to match any party theme or color scheme.
It’s easier to just make a cake, but I do appreciate how adorable these are.
I can understand why cake pop have become a huge trend – they are really pretty!
Learn how to make Cake Pops the easy way with these simple instructions:
You can use any boxed cake mix to perpare this recipe. If you really want to keep things simple, you could buy a couple cupcakes at the grocery store and then mash them up frosting and all to make cake pops.
First, you need to bake a cake. Then you take that cake and break it up and add some frosting. I used a store-bought chocolate cake mix. If you want to bake a cake from scratch, you might want to try my friend Jocelyn’s chocolate cake recipe.
Mix the frosting into the cake, mashing the cake up at the same time. You will end up with soft cake that can be easily formed into balls.
Roll the cake into balls, you want them to be about the size of a ping pong ball. Then dip the sticks in melted chocolate and place them in the cake balls.
Then the cake balls go into the freezer until they become solid. This is very important. You need to put the cake pops in the freezer before you dip them in the melted chocolate, otherwise, they will fall apart and make a mess. Trust me on this one.
Then it is time to dunk the cake balls in melted chocolate and sprinkles. Voilà! You have Cake Pops!
I might have made that seem a little too easy, the process is a little tedious.
I loved how these cake pops turned out. You can really taste the caramel frosting, and I liked the way the nonpareils gave added crunch.
I used the cake mix to bake two 8-inch round cakes. Then I used about 1/4 of that cake to make Cake Pops (I didn’t want to make too many because I knew I would end up eating all of them).
The instructions below are for a full batch, which would yield about 60 cake pops.
Pro Tip: Save the cake mix box and use it to stick the cake pops into while the chocolate dies. Or if you want to be fancy, cake pop stands exist.

Stir until small crumbs form.
- Then form the crumbs into small balls.
- Next, melt about 1/4 cup of the almond bark. Dip the sticks in the melted chocolate and then stick them in the cake balls, being careful not to go through the balls.
- This is the most important step: freeze the cake balls. You need to freeze the cake balls, otherwise, they will break up when you dip them in the melted chocolate. Freeze the cake balls for at least 2 hours. I left them in the freezer for two days because I got busy with other things.
- Before you melt the chocolate, take the box from the cake mix and use a knife to gently poke small holes in the box. You will be placing the cake pops in the holes while the chocolate dries.
- Melt about 2 cups of melting chocolate or almond bark. It works well to melt it in a mug placed in the microwave.
One by one, dunk the cake pops in the melted chocolate, shake off the excess, and sprinkle with nonpareils.
Carefully place the cake pops in the box to dry. Once the chocolate sets it is time to eat!
