  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Beat cake mix, water, eggs, and vegetable oil together in a bowl using an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds; increase speed to medium and beat until batter is smooth, about 2 minutes more. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 28 to 33 minutes. Cool cake completely, at least 1 hour.
  4. Crumble cake into a large bowl and mix in cream cheese. Roll cake mixture into about 40 to 50 quarter-size balls. Insert a lollipop stick into each cake ball and arrange on a baking sheet; refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.
  5. Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 15-second intervals, stirring after each melting, 1 to 3 minutes.
  6. Dip each cake ball into melted chocolate until coated. Arrange cake pops on a baking sheet to dry.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Any flavor cake mix can be used in place of the yellow cake mix.
  • You can use different food colorings for the chocolate. White chocolate bark can be used in place of the chocolate bark, if desired. Add a drop of red food coloring for a pink coating.
  • Editor's Note:
  • The cooking instructions for the cake are based specifically for Betty Crocker® cake mix. Follow instructions on box if using a different brand.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I loved it

It was a little crumbly but it turned out OK.

Fun and different for your get together. This is a good way to use up any leftover cake. I like that it’s not too sweet. I used unsweetened dark chocolate for the coating. These were fun to make...
