Vanessa Cantu, Writer

You Will Need:


  • Duncan Hines Devil’s Food Cake Mix

  • 1 cup water

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

  • 3 large eggs

  • Foil

  • Large mixing bowl

  • Duncan Hines Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Candy Melts

  • 6 inch lollipop sticks

  • Sprinkles (optional)

  • Styrofoam


    Step 1 Prep

    Preheat oven to 350°F for metal and glass pan(s), 325°F for dark or coated pan(s)

    Line cake pan in foil, so you can pop it out and not worry about a mess!

    Step 2 Mix

    Blend cake mix, water, oil and eggs in a large bowl at low speed until moistened (about 30 seconds).

    Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.

    Pour batter in pan(s) and bake immediately.

    Step 3 Bake

    Bake 26–31 min.

    Cool cake(s) in pan on wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove cake(s) from pan and cool completely before frosting.

    Step 4 Making Cake Pop Dough

    Crumble the cake into fine crumbs with your hands in a large bowl. Mix in about 1/3 cup of frosting with your hands. The mixture should be dense but not gooey.

    Step 5 Shaping

    Smush the mixture in your hand to pack it tightly into a ball.  Roll it into a nicely shaped ball. Roll the remaining mixture into balls.

    Step 6 Coating

    Grab your Candy Melts and a small microwaveable dish.  Put about 5 morsels into the bowl and melt them in the microwave. Grab your cake pop sticks.  Dip your stick into the melted Candy Melt and quickly stick it into a cake pop at least half way down.  Repeat with remaining cake pops. Set pops on a cookie tray. Freeze for about 15 minutes so they can firm .  Put your Candy Melts into a microwaveable mug. Dip the cake pop into the mug, evenly coating it. Let the coating drip off.  Place cake pop on cookie sheet or on styrofoam to stand it up .

    Step 7 Finishing Touches

    If using sprinkles, add immediately before coating sets.  Repeat for remaining pops.
