  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup frosting

  2. Mix in just enough frosting, using your hands, so the cake holds together when you roll it into a ball.

  3. Take a heaping tablespoon of cake and form it into a ball. Gently roll the ball into an oval, then shape it so the top (the head) is narrower than the bottom, and the bottom is flat.

  4. Smooth any cracks, then place the cake ball, bottom side down, on a lined baking sheet. Repeat the process with the remaining cake.

  5. Refrigerate the cake balls for 2 hours or freeze for 1 hour. (Do not skip this step or your cake pops will fall apart when you try to coat them.)
  6. Melt a few of the candy melts in a small bowl.

  7. Dip a lollipop stick into the melted candy, then press it into the bottom of a cake ball. Wipe away excess candy, then return cake pop to the baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining cake balls, then refrigerate until candy is hard (about 5 to 10 minutes).
