Ingredients Needed   

The ingredients needed for this treat are simple and you might already have them in your kitchen. Here is what you need:

• 1 box of white cake mix
• 1/2 cup vegetable oil
• 3 large eggs
• 1 can vanilla frosting
• White candy melts (16oz)
• About 2 cups of sprinkles
• Cake pop sticks


Step 1: Prepare Cake

Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a 9×13 inch cake pan with nonstick cooking spray. To make the cake, mix the cake mix, oil, and eggs in a bowl until all ingredients are combined. Spread the cake into the prepared baking pan and bake for about 30 minutes. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for about 20 minutes before removing it from the pan.

Step 2: Break Up the Cake

Once the cake has cooled, break it into small pieces using a spoon or your hands. You can also use a food processor to break up the cake, but the pieces should be uniform in size.

Step 3: Make Cake Balls

Using a medium-sized cookie scoop, scoop out an ice cream-sized ball of cake, making sure the pieces have been evenly combined. Roll the cake mixture into a ball and place it onto a lined baking sheet. Continue this process until all the cake mix is used up. Place the cake balls into the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours.

Step 4: Prepare the Frosting

Using a mixer on low speed, beat the frosting until it is smooth. Divide the frosting in half and shape each half into a ball. Roll each ball of frosting onto a lined baking sheet and place it in the freezer to chill for at least two hours.

Step 5: Melt the Candy

Melt the candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl, at 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval. Continue until the candy melts have been completely melted.

Step 6: Dip the Cake Pops

Remove the cake balls and frosting balls from the refrigerator and freezer respectively. Using a lollipop stick, dip a cake ball into the melted candy and coat it fully. Immediately tap off any excess candy and dip the cake pop into the sprinkles. Place the cake pop onto the lined baking sheet to cool.

Step 7: Frost the Cake Pops

Remove the frosting balls from the freezer and immediately proceed to apply the frosting to the cooled cake pops. Be sure to start with one side, apply some pressure, and twist the stick slightly to make sure the frosting is evenly distributed.

Step 8: Serve or Store Your Cake Pops

Your Cake Pops are now ready to be served or stored. If you choose to store them, place them in an airtight container and store in a refrigerator. They will last for a few days.
