Step 1

Bake cake in 9×13-pan as directed on package and let cool.

Once cake is cooled crumble cake into large bowl.

Soften your frosting and stir. When frosting is soft and smooth, pour into crumbled cake and mix. Form ping-pong sized balls with your clean hands, making sure the cake sticks together well without cracking. If there’s cracking add more frosting.

Place balls on cookie sheet and freeze for 30 minutes.

Melt the candy coating in microwave in 30 second increments. When smooth and melted, dip the ends of a lollipop sticks into the coating and press into cake balls until balls are secure on end of sticks.

Starting with the first pop you completed, dip the pops into the melted coating, making sure to coat the whole pop…letting the excess drip back into the pan.

Roll in sprinkles, etc as desired then put the cake pop into the cake pop stand and let set. Continue with remaining cake pops.Let harden and enjoy!
