  • Prepare cake mix as directed on package, adding food color. Bake as directed on package for 13x9-inch baking pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

  • Crumble cake into large bowl. Add marshmallow creme; mix until well blended. Shape into 1-inch balls. Refrigerate 2 hours.

  • Melt coating wafers as directed on package. For each Cake Pop, dip 1/2 inch of lollipop stick into melted coating. Insert dipped end of lollipop stick halfway into cake ball. Let stand until coating is set. Dip each cake pop into melted coating. Shake gently to remove excess coating. Sprinkle or roll cake pops in green sprinkles, if desired. Place cake pops in styrofoam blocks. Let stand until coating is set.

Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tips:

  • Confectionary coating, also known as almond bark, is used for candy making and coating. It is packaged in wafer form and is available in a variety of colors and flavors, including milk and dark chocolate. It is found in the cake decorating aisle of craft and party stores.

 

  • Substitute 1/2 cup canned vanilla frosting for the marshmallow creme.

 

  • If styrofoam blocks are not available, use upside-down foam egg cartons or a cardboard box to hold the cake pops.

    There were a nightmare to prepare and totally not worth the cost of the ingredients. The mixture did not stick together resulting in not adhering to the sticks.. crumbling into he too sweet candy coating.. half way through, I tossed what was left in the trash. Too messy, too sweet and just not worth it.
