Halloween Cake Pops


There aren’t any tricks to this tasty treat: We’ll show you how to make this easy cake pop recipe by mixing cake crumbs with buttercream frosting, dunking them in melted chocolate, and giving them ghoulish and gory decorations. It’s is a foolproof Halloween dessert that’s easy to make!


In large bowl, combine cake crumbs and frosting.

To decorate: Working in batches, in medium bowl, melt 8 oz candy melts with 1 Tbsp coconut oil in microwave at 50% power in 30-sec. increments until melted and smooth. Place two-thirds of chocolate in second bowl and microwave at 50% power in 30-sec. increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth. Add remaining chocolate, stirring until melted. Working 1 at a time, spoon 1 Tbsp melted chocolate or candy melts into each pop mold and use back of spoon to evenly coat sides, allowing excess to pool evenly in center. Refrigerate until firm, about 5 min. Push wooden craft sticks partially into molds and coat sides with chocolate or melts again. Let set.

Remove sticks. Fill each pop with 1 Tbsp cake mix, leaving gap between top of mold, then gently push sticks back in. Spoon over an additional 1 Tbsp melted chocolate or candy melts, and use small offset spatula to smooth and scrape away any excess. Refrigerate until firmly set, about 5 min. Gently remove each pop, pushing stick through mold and further into pop once it is fully removed. Repeat steps to make 16 pops.
