Candy Cane Cake Pops

The funny thing about sharing a blog with your sister is that I am usually just as surprised as you are to see what Rona posts. I mean it happens more often than you'd believe. We don't live together and don't coordinate recipes, so it's pretty exciting for me to see what she has made. This happened a few weeks ago when I saw that she made cake pops. First, after getting sad that I am not close enough to go to her place to eat them, I decided the only solution would be to try a variation of cake pops myself.

Fun side note--these cake pops were also featured on the Chloe and Isabel blog here!


1 box white cake mix
3/4 cup milk
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup vanilla frosting (store bought or homemade)
1/2 cup crushed candy canes
Crushed candy canes, red sprinkles, and red frosting for decoration
Lollypop sticks


1. Mix the cake mix, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Pour into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes until the cake is cooked throughout.

2. Let the cake cool completely. Crumble the cake into small, even pieces and place in a large bowl.

3. Add the vanilla frosting and the crushed candy canes to the cake and mix until a thick dough consistency forms.

4. Shape the dough into evenly sized cake bites and cool in a refrigerator for 1-2 hours, or in the freezer for 20 minutes.

5. At a low heat, melt white melting chocolate. Insert a lollypop stick into each cake bite and dip into the chocolate. Decorate the pops and leave them in the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens.

6. Share the cake pops with family and friends!
