I made these last weekend with my nieces. We had so much fun. They were fun to make and turned out adorable. I used a yellow cake mix and vanilla frosting, but you could use any combination that sounds appealing.

*Tip: use the smaller sucker sticks, as the longer ones make them top heavy.

Cake pops are fun for kids and adults. We used a white cake and cream cheese frosting, but for spring flavors strawberry or lemon would be a great choice. The inside is tender and moist while the white chocolate forms a nice, hard shell. Easter sprinkles add to the cuteness of the dessert. Place the styrofoam base in an Easter basket, cover with grass and you have an edible centerpiece. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Easter Cake Pops

Test Kitchen Tips
Don't make the cake balls too big or they will be top heavy. A small cookie scoop works perfectly. Make sure to chill well before coating. Only take out a few at a time to ensure they stay cold.

Step-by-Step

  1. Bake a cake mix in a 13 x 9 inch pan, according to package directions.
  2. After cake has cooled, smash the cake with a fork.
  3. Mix in 1 can of frosting.
  4. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from fridge and form into balls.
  6. In a double boiler melt a 1/2 cup of candy melts. Dip the tip of the sucker stick into the white chocolate.
  7. Then insert stick into each ball.
  8. Then refrigerate again for another 15 minutes.
  9. While cake pops are in the fridge melt the remaining candy melts.
  10. Remove cake pops from fridge. Dip the cake part into the melted chocolate.
  11. Sprinkle with Easter sprinkles.
  12. After the cake ball is covered, insert the stick into a styrofoam block to allow the chocolate coating to harden.
