Cake Pops


Got this recipe for donut pops from a friend and I must share. Birthdays, Easter, baby showers, or just because they are cute and taste good! There are many ways to be creative when making these. There are dozens of different types of sprinkles or you can use different colors of candy melts and no sprinkles if you wish. Almost everything can be bought at a craft store.

  • 1 (12 ounce) package colored candy coating melts, divided

  • 24 plain doughnut holes

  • 24 lollipop sticks

  • 1 tablespoon multicolored candy sprinkles (jimmies), as desired


  1. Place about 1/4 cup candy melts into a small microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave at 40 percent power for 30 seconds. Stir the candy coating and continue to heat in 30 second-intervals until the coating is just warm and completely melted.

  2. Poke a hole halfway through doughnut holes with lollipop sticks then remove the sticks. Dip the end of the sticks into the melted coating and reinsert into doughnut holes (this holds the doughnut holes firmly on the sticks). Stick doughnut pops upright into a block of plastic foam and place into the refrigerator for 1 hour to firm up.

  3. When pops are firmly attached to their sticks, melt the remaining candy coating dots in a microwave-safe bowl on 40 percent power for 1 minute; stir, and melt in 30-second intervals until the coating is warm and smoothly melted.

  4. Dip doughnut holes into the coating, covering it completely. Hold dipped pops over a bowl and sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Return decorated pops to the plastic foam block to set.
