Confetti Cake Pops are a fun treat and so easy to make using a cake mix and store-bought icing. These colorful cake pops make a great party treat.
It was back to school for most children today, so why not surprise them when they come home with a special treat - Confetti Cake Pops. The first day of school is always exciting whether kids are just starting grade 1 or their first year University. It is also a very anxious day for parents. For some, it is a relief to send them off to school and quit wondering how to keep them entertained. For others, it is a sad time, as the time you spend with them is now lessened. I have to admit when I brought my son to school that first day I managed to say "bye, have a great day", and then cried all the way back to my car. I did this for 6 years. My husband always found this quite amusing. After several years of no tears on the first day of school, last year I dropped my son off at the University of Calgary, it back to the tears. Children really do grow up too quickly!
I usually make my cake pops from scratch baking my own cake and using homemade icing. This recipe offers a simpler and quicker method to make delicious cake pops.
Confetti Cake Pops
Confetti Cake pops are great treats for parties.
- 1 white cake mix I used the one with the sprinkles in it
- 1 can of prepared icing
- 2 cups white chocolate
- 1 cup sprinkles
- Prepare cake mix as per box instructions.
- After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into large bowl.
- Add frosting a couple of heaping tablespoons at a time, mix thoroughly. You may not need all the icing, consistency should be that of play dough.
- Use a small cookie scoop (this ensures all balls are same size) to make round balls of the cake mix. You'll need to roll the mix between the palm of your hands to make a nice round shape. Place on wax paper covered cookie sheet. (Should make 45-50)
- Melt about 2 cups White chocolate in double boiler.
- Dip the tip of a lollipop stick in a little of the melted chocolate and insert into the cake balls. (Insert a little less than halfway.)
- Refrigerator for 30-60 minutes so the pops can firm up and the chocolate on the stick hardens.
- Once firm, carefully insert the cake ball into the chocolate by holding the lollipop stick and rotating until covered. Once covered remove and softly tap and rotate until the excess chocolate falls off. Don’t tap too hard or the cake ball will fall off, too.
- Before chocolate hardens you can add sprinkles to add some colour.
- Place in a styrofoam block to dry or on wax paper if putting into mini cupcake papers.
