What you need to make cake balls:

cake mix: You can use any flavor cake mix: chocolate, Vanilla, red velvet, yellow, etc. Be sure to check your cake mix to make sure you have any other cake ingredients the mix recommends for baking (eggs, oil, etc.).

frosting tray: You will also need 1 container of store-bought frosting. I like to use anything with a simple texture like Vanilla, chocolateor the strawberry.

Candy melts: these Chocolate tablets It’s the easiest way to get the chocolate coating because it melts easily and comes in a lot of color options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you use chocolate chips instead of candy melts in your cake pops?

Although candy melts work best for cake lollipops, you can also use chocolate chips instead. The batter will be a little thicker and a little harder to work with (but still good). The crust around the cake pops will be thicker once the chocolate has set.

How to make Halloween cake balls:

1. Bake the Cake: Bake the cake according to package instructions and leave to cool completely.

2. Add the cream and mix: Pour the baked cake into a large mixing bowl. Add two-thirds of the frosting bowl. Using the full container makes the cake pops a bit soft and hard to handle once dipped in the chocolate. But this is how you can make cake balls stick together using frosting. Use clean hands to mix the cream and cake together. Cake batter will be very smooth, but moldable.

3. Roll the cake balls: Form the cake batter into small balls (about 3-4 tablespoons each). You don’t want it to be too big, just so that it fits easily in the palm of your hand.

Once you have formed all the lollipops (a standard size cake will make about 35-40 cake pops), place them in the fridge for 1-2 hours or in the freezer for 30 minutes.

4. Your Candy Melt: Melt candy in the microwave in 30-second increments at half power. You can also use Double boiler To do this on the stove top or Chocolate melting like this. If you need to soften the melting of the candy, you can add a teaspoon of canola or vegetable oil once it has melted and you can reheat the chocolate for 15 seconds at a time to re-melt it if it starts to harden at any point.

5. Attach the cake stick: First, dip your stick into the melted chocolate and push the stick 2/3 through the cooled cake pan.

6. Dipping Cake: Dip the cake pan provided into the melted chocolate and let any excess chocolate drip off the pop. Gently tap the cake pop stick against the side of the bowl to get rid of the extra chocolate. Next, add any additional decorations and store the cake pan upright while it sets (unless you don’t mind a flat bottom cake pan).

You can keep it upright in a variety of ways like sticking it into a bowl filled with granulated white sugar or rice or you can stick it into a block of styrofoam.

How to Make Mummy Cake for Halloween:

  • Follow the instructions above to make a generic cake and then dip the piece of cake into the white chocolate.
  • Add two eyes of candy and let the chocolate set.
  • With more of the melted white chocolate, use either a piping bag (or a ziplock bag with a corner cut off) or a spoon to sprinkle streaks of chocolate over the mummy’s face to give it a wrapping effect.
  • Allow the chocolate covered frosting to solidify and your mummies are ready!

advice: When adding the bat wings, have the cake pop stand in a stand or bowl of rice/sugar to hold it upright and insert the wings on both sides at the same time. Just go far enough to stick but not so far that it splits the brownie cake in half.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make cake balls without baking with a ready-made cake?

Yes! You can use an already made angel food cake from the store, just add the icing little by little until the cake sticks together to form the balls.

How do I store my cake pops?

If you make them in advance, you can store the completed cake pops at room temperature for 1 to 2 weeks. You can store them for up to four weeks in the fridge, but the cold can create some condensation on your decorations and cause them to bleed or warp slightly.
