How To Make Cake Pops

An assortment of brightly colored cake pops Cake pops are all the rage these days, and for good reason. They are cute and delicious, and they give you something to do with any leftover cake scraps you might have. This means when you’ve finished sculpting that perfect birthday cake, you shouldn’t throw away the scraps. Just mix them up with some frosting and you’ve got yourself cake pops that are ready to frost and decorate. There are other methods of making them, like using a cake pop maker, but this particular recipe is for the original type using scraps and frosting. It’s also the most easy cake pop recipe because it uses cake scraps you already have, or boxed cake mix, and canned pre-made frosting instead of homemade ingredients.

Easy Cake Pop Recipe (Chocolate)

Easy Cake Pop Recipe (Chocolate)

Ingredients and Whatnot

  • Cake scraps and/or cake made to destroy and form into delicious balls (chocolate)
  • 1 can of frosting (chocolate)
  • 1 bag of chocolate
  • sprinkles (chocolate? of course!)
  • As many cake pop sticks as you think you will need (a dozen or so)
  • Styrofoam or a cake pop stand
  • Mixing bowl
  • Pyrex or other microwave safe bowl

Instructions

  1. Bake the cake if you aren't using scraps. The instructions are on the box, since this is the easy recipe
  2. In the mixing bowl, mangle that cake. You can use a food processor, a fork, your hands, whatever.
  3. Dump some (not all!) of the frosting in with the cake and mix it up. Continue adding frosting until you get a semi-solid sticky lump of chocolatey goodness. If you can't form the whole thing into a ball that holds its shape you may have gone a bit too far with the frosting. That's okay! Make more cake! And then keep working it until you get a good consistency.
  4. Form the sticky chocolatey lump into balls that are an inch or two in diameter and set them on a cookie sheet.
  5. Jam a cake pop stick in them and set them in the freeze to chill for 15 to 20 minutes
  6. When the cake pops are just about ready to pull out of the freezer, dump your bag of chocolate into the microwave safe bowl and nuke it until melted. You're not cooking it here, just melting it so go easy on the timing.
  7. Pull out your cake pops, dip them in the chocolate so they're completely covered. Hold them for a moment until the excess has dripped off, and then dip them or cover them in sprinkles.
  8. Poke them into your styrofoam or set them in your cake pop holder, and put them back in the fridge to freeze overnight. You can also set them back on the cookie sheet, but you will get weird flat-topped cake pops. Boo!

As mentioned above, you can make cake pops with something like the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker, but then you miss out on the flavor of the frosting/cake combination. The babycakes machine is pretty handy though, and it makes quick and great little snacks. It’s been featured at Must Have Kitchen Gadgets as a “must have,” but I dunno if I’d go that far. It’s more like “kinda handy to have.”

Speaking of handy to have, if you have to make a ton of these things, you could always check out the Easy Roller, but at $269 a pop, I think that’s something best left to caterers that are making tons of these things, or maybe very busy and rich moms.

Without all the gadgets, the above recipe is probably the easiest way to make cake pops. I’ve always enjoyed the results and I hope you do too.

Additional Tips

Make sure that you use fresh carrots because they taste better. Don’t shred the carrots the night before baking because it will become too juicy and carrot bits won’t appear on the cupcakes anymore. It is much more pleasing to the taste if there are carrot bits. If you don’t have coconuts, you can substitute it with raisins or add in more nuts.

If you don’t like cream cheese as your frosting, you can use regular butter icing or better yet, you can use white chocolate frosting. Dark chocolate is encouraged but you can use it as a topping to your icing. The recipe for this cupcake is also the recipe for the carrot bread. Simply use the batter and place it on a bread pan and bake it there. Last but not the least, you can choose a variety of nuts to mix on your recipe. Walnuts and almonds are not the only choices! Some even find pistachios as a nice choice.

Do the toothpick test to check if the cupcake is ready for cooling. Simply poke a toothpick in the middle of the cupcake, if you are able to pull out the toothpick without batter sticking into it then the cupcake is fully cooked. If not, you need to put it back and bake it for a few more minutes.

You can make different kinds of frosting for your peanut butter cupcake recipe.

Use a piping bag and piping tip to place it on the cupcake.

Take your favorite flavoured jelly and use a spoon to place it in the cupcake pans. One spoon of batter in the pan first and then the jelly and then batter again. This makes a great snack for children and since the taste is already great, you won’t need to add frosting and sprinkles anymore. You can already eat it as is.
