"Birthdays, Easter, baby showers, or just because they are cute and taste good! Got this recipe from a friend and I must share... enjoy! There are many ways to be creative when making these... there are dozens of different types of sprinkles, or you can use different colors of candy melts and no sprinkles if you wish. Almost everything can be bought at a crafts store." — faydra999

1 (12 ounce) package

multicolored candy sprinkles (jimmies), as desired
Anxious to try this clever cake pop. I re-read this and finally think I figured out the following.
Poke the lollipop stick into the donut,
(then take it out and dip the stick into the melted chocolate, then back into the donut.)
Then store in styrofoam until the stick is set, then dip the donut in the chocolate and decorate.
These were certainly easier than making a cake. However, they were not nearly as tasty as a real cake.
It's so much eaiser than the cake baking process and you don't have to worry about the cake being too sweet! Can't believe I did not think of that one.
This is so much better than making the cake and mixing the icing etc. It was so hard to make the cake balls perfectly round before dipping - what a great idea this is!! THANK-YOU!!
I have made hundreds of these for my kids and their activities. My top tricks are to put the balls into the freezer for about 10 minutes. Then, I pull them out and dip my stick into melted chocolate which acts like a glue..put them back into the freezer to set. I then put my styrofoam block into the fridge. After, I dip I stick the pop directly into the fridge to set. The trick to not having the balls slide down the stick is to not poke your stick in too far and keep them chilled all times while working with them. All this works for me and I hope that I have helped others to make cake pops. Because, they are alot of fun to make once you get a system going.
I'm such an idiot...I've already had 2 layers of cake baking when I found this! THANK YOU! It's going to be a breeze using plain donut holes. Thanks for the great idea and time-saver!
My husband (who will eat just about anything that resembles cake) was really excited to make these to take to work as a Holiday treat. He made four ahead of time as an after dinner treat for our daughter, and decided not to make the rest - his exact words were "The doughnut holes make them gross, they don't taste anything like cake pops."
These Mocha Cake pops were made into a bouquet. The cake is mocha with coffee melts, vanilla topped with chocolate jimmies. I tried donut holes, but the light holes tore through the stick when I put on the candy melts. HA HA HA! Maybe I should have used the cake donuts. :)
