From what I understand, they do take some practice. And they can get dry pretty quickly, so you can’t make them way ahead. But they are cute, and they’re always a hit.

I’ve made them several times. They are VERY time consuming, but so delicious! Here’s my tips.

 – I turn mine into a 2 day process 😛

– Day One: Make your cake, let it cool, mix it with the frosting, put mixture in freezer for about 30 minutes.

– After mixture is cold, roll into balls. I use a small melon baller for consistent sizes.

– melt some of your chocolate and take lollypop sticks. Dip tip into chocolate and put stick into cake pop.

– Put cake pops in fridge overnight.


Those steps right there are a few hours of work!!

– Day Two: take only a few balls out at a time.  Melt your chocolate and dip the ball in carefully. You will have some casualties, but those are the taste testers 🙂

– Swirl cake pop around to get rid of some of the excess chocolate.

– I usually have a piece of styrofoam or a cardboard box handy. I poke holes and use it as a holder while the cake pops dry.

– Continue with remaining pops, but only taking a few out at a time. The colder they are, the less they fall off the sticks.


Those are my tips. Good luck!

I have a friend recently make a batch and they weren’t too hard for her. to make ones that are even easier than that she added a few that were just marshmallows on sticks with frosting and sprinkles.
