These Winter Wonderland Cake Pops are super fun to make and great for making with children. You can even cheat and used box cake mix and frosting too.
These cake pops are not the beautiful round ones, oh no, these are real cake pops. Ones that you can have fun making with kids. In fact, these are perfect for a fun hour or so with the kids in the kitchen.
Winter Wonderland Cake Pops
Cake pops are great for using off cuts of cake. They are also perfect for using a box of cake mix rather than cook from scratch and if you are going to use cake mix, then why not make it super easy and use store bought vanilla frosting too.
1 box of cake mix
1 cup vanilla frosting/icing (you can opt to make your own or, purchase ready-made from the grocery store)
2 cups white candy melts
2 tsp coconut oil

Prepare cake according to box’s directions. Once complete, allow cake to cool completely.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. When the cake has cooled, crumble it into a medium-sized bowl. Add frosting and fold. Ensure that your cake is entirely coated with frosting.
Roll cake into 1 – 1.5 inch balls. Set on lined baking sheet and insert lollipop stick on top. Let chill for about 15-20 minutes.
Remove cake balls from refrigerator. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy in 30-second intervals. After the first interval, stir in coconut oil and microwave until completely melted.
One at a time, dip uncoated cake pop into candy melts. Carefully place on lined baking sheet. Decorate with sprinkles.
Let set in the refrigerator for a minimum of 20 minutes and enjoy!
My boys love making cake pops and we are working on a version for valentines at the moment. They are so forgiving and the perfect size for an afterschool treat.
