Cake Pops

Loved by kids and adults alike, these fun cake pops are a cinch to make.


  • 1 9x13-inch baked and cooled chocolate cake

  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

  • 3 cups (450g) coloured melting chocolate

  • lollipop sticks

  • styrofoam block


  • toasted coconut

  • crumbled ginger cookies

  • chocolate cookie crumbs

  • mini chocolate candies

  • silver balls

  • toffee bits

  • chopped pistachios

  • colourful sprinkles


  • Crumble cake into a large bowl. You will have about 10 cups.

  • Stir in condensed milk. Scoop a 2 tbsp portion into the palm of your hand and squeeze together to compress. Roll into a ball. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining cake mixture.

  • Transfer to fridge and chill for 2 hours or freeze for 45 minutes.

  • Place a rack on a foil-lined baking sheet. Melt chocolate in a medium bowl, stirring until smooth. Dip the tip of the lollipop stick into the melted chocolate, and then insert into cake ball.

  • Dip cake pop into the melted chocolate and turn to coat. Lift out and dip into toppings immediately, before the coating hardens. Stick each cake pop upright into a Styrofoam block and allow to harden fully, about 20 minutes.


Store your cake pops for up to one week in the fridge.
