Heart Cake Pops
Learn how to make adoraable Heart Shaped Cake Pops with this easy to follow recipe and tutorial!
to 30 cake pops
(8- or 9-inch)
baked cake layers,
any flavor (I used chocolate)
¼ to ½
pink candy melts
white candy melts
Place cake layers in a large bowl. Crumble using your hands or a fork.
Mix in just enough frosting so the cake holds together when formed in to a ball.
Place a heaping tablespoon of cake mixture into your palm and form into a heart.
Transfer hearts to a parchment-lined baking sheet; refrigerate for 2 hours or freeze for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Melt a few of the candy melts in the microwave (either color). Dip a lollipop stick into the candy, then insert it into the side of a heart.
Wipe off any excess candy around the stick, then repeat process with remaining hearts. Freeze hearts for 15 minutes.
Pour pink candy melts into a small bowl (reserve ⅓ cup for decorating the pops), and then melt according to package directions. When melted, stir in 2 teaspoons vegetable shortening.
Dip each heart into the melted candy, then gently tap the lollipop stick against the side of the bowl to remove excess candy. Transfer dipped hearts back to the parchment-lined baking sheet.
Repeat process with half of the hearts. Then, melt white candy melts according to method above, and dip remaining hearts in white candy.
To decorate the hearts, melt remaining pink candy according to directions. Transfer to a small zip top bag and snip off the corner.
Drizzle pink candy bag and forth over white cake pops. When finished, melt remaining white candy and drizzle over pink cake pops.
Decorate cake pop sticks, if desired, then refrigerate cake pops until ready to eat. Enjoy!
