Cupcakes are so 2015...cake pops are the future! These bite-size cake balls dipped in Salazon Chocolate will have you asking "Where have you been all my life!?"

What You'll Need

  • Cake mix (eggs, water, oil dependent on cake used)
  • 2-3 tablespoons of cream cheese icing
  • 2 Salazon Chocolate bars
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Choice of toppings (in this demo we used sea salt and sprinkles)
  • A pinch of coconut oil (or desired oil) 
  • Styrofoam block

 

 

Steps

1.  Bake a plain sheet cake following the directions on the box and allow 1 hour to cool.

     

     

    2.  When the cake has reached room temperature, crumble the cake entirely into a bowl. 

     

     

    3.  Start by adding 2 table spoons of cream cheese icing to the crumbs. Mix until crumbly texture is nearly gone. Add more icing as needed. (It's important to add as you go. Too much icing will make the cake balls too heavy for the sticks)

    4.  Once the desired texture is achieved, roll the dough into balls. 


       

      5.  Place the balls into the freezer for 1 to 2 hours.
      6.  While the balls are in the freezer, take the time to melt your Salazon Chocolate in the microwave. Break up the bar and place Salazon Chocolate pieces in a mug. Microwave for 30 second intervals, stirring in between. The Salazon Chocolate is ready to use once it is completely melted and slightly warm to the touch. Add a pinch of melted coconut oil to thin the Salazon Chocolate for easier dipping.
      7.  Dip your lollipop sticks a quarter inch into the melted Salazon Chocolate or about half of your cake pop's width. This will allow for the cake ball to stay on the stick better. Place cake balls on shortly after dipping your sticks.

         

        8.  Dip each cake pop into the melted Salazon Chocolate. Twirl the cake pop slowly to achieve a smooth texture and complete coverage. Once the pops are fully covered and no longer dripping, add toppings and place in the Styrofoam block. 

           

          9.  Allow cake pops to harden in the refrigerator.
          10.  Use a knife to clean up the sticks by scrapping off the hardened Salazon Chocolate.
          11.  Enjoy!

             

            Tips: 

            • Customize everything from your cake flavor to your toppings to your flavor of Salazon chocolate for unique results each time. 
            • Use a vegan cake and icing to create a vegan alternative! 
            • Use your hands when mixing the cake crumbs and icing.
            • Put the melted chocolate in a mug or glass. This makes dipping much easier. 
            • Store your cake pops in in the fridge.
