Budget Halloween Cake Pops

October 9, 2012

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 Cake Pops

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.

Easy Halloween Cake Pops

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!

Questions for you: Do you have any fun Halloween recipes or DIY craft ideas?

    Looks so yummy! And easy! I have a ton of stuff pinned to do, but we’ll see how the month actually pans out spare time wise. :p

    For someone like me, who wants to be a crafter but isn’t that talented …I could SO make these type of cake pops. Plus these cake pops would be something to do with my 5 yr old…and not be to stressful…thanks for sharing!
