  • Form 24 balls with this cake mixture and allow them to chill until firm to touch. Take them out of refrigerator and roll them again quickly one more time to smoothen them out.

  • Melt white chocolate using double boiler or in microwave (in small increments). Add a tsp of oil to thin it out if necessary! Dip the tip of lollipop sticks in melted chocolate and press it in the center of cake ball.

  • Repeat the step above until all the cake pops are formed. Enjoy!


Storing Information:
  • Store cake pops in refrigerator at all times until ready to be served. Cake pops can stand room temperature for a few hours if it is not hot outside.
  • To freeze cake pops for later use I suggest freeze them uncoated. Thaw cake balls completely for a few hours/overnight in refrigerator and them coat them in melted chocolate.
Tips for perfect Cake Pops:
  1. Never dip super chilled cake balls into hot chocolate or else your cake pops can crack.
  2. Always allow cake balls to firm up in the fridge to help them stick to lollipop sticks and coat easily.
  3. After chilling, roll the balls quickly once again. This little step will make super smooth and pretty cake pops!
  4. If you notice the chocolate is getting too thick to work with, reheat it using ½ tsp of oil to thin it out.
