Candy Cane Cake Pops

Candy Cane Cake Pops
These are awesome for holiday dessert tables or party favors… and if you’re short on time, you can skip the sticks altogether and just make candy cane cake balls. They’ll still look pretty darn cute – just like little cake truffles!

  1. 1 box white cake mix (baked as directed on box)
  2. 1 can vanilla frosting
  3. 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  4. White Candy Melts – 2 bags
  5. Candy Canes, crushed
  6. Red Candy Melts – 1 bag (optional, used only for design #2)
  7. Styrofoam – sheet or blocks
  8. 6″ white Lollipop Sticks
  9. Red Ribbon
  10. Hot Glue (or clear-drying tacky glue)
  1. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
  2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can frosting. (I use the back of a large spoon, but it may be easier to use fingers to mix together. But, be warned, it will get messy. Also, you may not need the entire can of frosting, so start out by using almost the entire can and add more if you need to.)
  3. Roll mixture into quarter size balls and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (Should make 5-50)
  4. 4. Melt chocolate in the microwave per directions on package. (30 sec intervals, stirring in between.)
  5. 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.)
  6. Place them in the freezer for a little while to firm up.
  7. 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.
  8. While still wet, roll cake pops in crushed candy canes (for design #1)*
  9. Place in a styrofoam block to dry.
