Budget Halloween Cake Pops
I’ve been wanting to make some holiday sweets, so I adapted the following recipe from Everyday Food Magazine. I love that I was able to modify the recipe to fit my budget.
Budget Halloween Cake Pops:
1 loaf pound cake
Semi-sweet chocolate chips
Lollipop/cake pop sticks
Fun toppings (sprinkles and or candy)
Cut round pieces from pound cake with a round cookie cutter
Melt a deep bowl of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Dip pieces of pound cake into chocolate using tines of fork.
Place on top of a cookie rack to drip off excess chocolate. Add toppings while chocolate is still wet.
Remove cake pops from cookie rack and place on top of wax paper.
Place sticks in center of cake pop.
How I made my version budget friendly:
- I used wooden skewers I already had at home instead of purchasing lollipop sticks (where would you buy those anyway?)
- I got lucky and found a small loaf of poundcake from the dollar store.
- Found a package of 4 different types of fall sprinkles for $1 at Target 😉
- I used an old protein scooper instead of cookie cutters since I don’t have any ;(
Thank you for reading! Have a great day!
