  • 1 white cake mix (plus, ingredients to prepare it)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup white frosting
  • 2 (10 to 12-ounce) packages white candy melts
  • 1 (3-ounce) container rainbow sprinkles (nonpareils)
  • lollipop sticks


  • Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Cool cake on a wire rack.
  • Crumbled cake with a fork or your hands.
  • Mix in frosting. Add just enough so that cake holds together when formed into a ball. (It's easiest to do this with your hands.)
  • Roll a heaping tablespoon of cake mixture into a ball.
  • Place ball on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat process with remaining cake.
  • Refrigerate cake pops for 2 hours or freeze for 1 hour.
  • Melt a few candy melts in a small bowl.
  • Dip the end of the lollipop stick into the melted candy, then press into a chilled cake pop. Repeat with remaining cake pops, then return pops to refrigerator until candy hardens.
  • Melt one package of candy melts in a small bowl according to package directions. Place sprinkles in a separate bowl
  • Dip a cake pop into the candy melts, coating entire pop. Rotate pop and gently tap on edge of bowl to remove excess candy.
  • Immediately cover cake pop with sprinkles. (Do this over a bowl, so you can catch the excess sprinkles and reuse them.)
  • Return cake pop to tray, then repeat process with remaining cake pops. Reheat candy melts (and add more to bowl), as needed.
  • Refrigerate cake pops until ready to serve. Enjoy!
