Chocolate Cake Pops Recipe by of 05-01-2016 [Updated on 27-08-2018]

After the cake pops covered in sugar paste, prepared on the occasion of Elisa's birthday and even the fresh and summer caprese pops, the greedy ones could not miss chocolate cake pops! The nice thing about these sweets is the fact that they can be prepared with countless bases, from the sponge cake prepared ad hoc, to the pandoro left over from the Christmas holidays, to a few slices of donut that has become a little dry: P Then just add some jam , nutella, mascarpone and form balls that you will then put on the sticks and cover as you like. For my chocolate cake pops I used pandoro, juice and sour cherries in syrup, dark chocolate and sugar sprinkles for decoration, Elisa appreciated a lot and not only her;) So I leave you to the recipe and if you want to prepare a delicious dessert without too many claims, this could be for you;) basins to those who pass by here.


How to make chocolate cake pops

In a bowl, combine the pandoro with the cherries in syrup (please: use the syrup from the black cherries!).

Knead until the mixture is moist and homogeneous.

Divide the mixture into balls, shaping them in your hands.

Insert a stick into each ball.

Melt the chocolate (in a bain-marie or in the microwave) and dip each ball gradually, covering them entirely with chocolate.

As the cake pops are ready, skewer the sticks into a Styrofoam form, a piece of bread, or something that can keep them straight, still and apart.

Immediately decorate your cake pops with colored sprinkles, chopped hazelnuts or other.

Let the chocolate dry well (it is better to keep them for an hour in the fridge, especially in summer) before serving.

Chocolate Cake Pops - Recipes

To prepare cake pops you need: a small sponge cake or a donut or the leftovers of a pandoro
nutella or mascarpone jam to mix
for dark chocolate decoration
and colored balls or almond powder the most talented can be dedicated with the decorations of colored icing
being careful to use nice colored supports.
Crumble the sponge cake and add the jam in our case we used Nutella, until we obtained a soft dough that allowed us to form the balls then I used the toothpicks to hold them but there are colored supports, we melted the chocolate to bain marie and we only partially dipped the head of the candy for decoration and we put them to dry using apples.

You know that there are many critics in my house, especially when it comes to food and meeting everyone's needs is not easy.

A large and important space is dedicated to children, both on common days and on special occasions. By now, in our group of friends, we have all become parents and when we have parties or dinners I try to adapt the menu precisely to the needs of the little ones and if I really can't do it I cook separately something that comes as close as possible to their tastes.

When there are many, (sometimes they almost equal the number of adults) we make them have dinner at a separate table all for them and it is truly a sight to see them all together, imagine 10 children aged between two and seven years eating compound in the their chair. an infinite tenderness.
and then. everyone to play and revolutionize the house. but these are details.

Anyway, we said menu suited their needs. yes I think last time they liked it a lot especially as regards the dessert, do you want to know how I did it?

Thanks to a quick and easy mold signed by Lékué, I made delicious chocolate Cake Pops that really made everyone agree.

Using this silicone mold and making these sweets is not difficult, inside the package you will find a booklet with instructions and some recipes and lollipop sticks, but I advise you not to take the company lightly, sometimes things do not turn out as they are. we imagine them, but dont't worry, here I arrive with some small but essential secrets for a success on the first try.

You can easily follow the recipes in the manual, I did it for the first time, but then I also wanted to experiment with new ones, even if in truth almost all of them look alike, remember that, even if the mold is made of silicone, it is advisable brush it lightly with oil or melted butter and even if the dough usually cooks quickly, about 10 minutes, you overdo it and keep it in the oven almost twice as much, the balls will come off even better.

Quick, easy, no-bake chocolate cake pops

Have you ever had a cake or sponge cake left over and you don't know how to dispose of it, well to me yes even if I prepare small cakes sometimes it has happened to me, a good way to get rid of them is to prepare quick chocolate cake pops , easy and without cooking. Let me state immediately that it is an excellent recipe for recycling cakes, donuts, heaven cake, pandoro, panettone, colombe, snacks or in any case all soft desserts that can be crumbled not biscuits of course. Chocolate cake pops are sweets that in recent years are prepared at any event: from birthdays to weddings. Mine are cheerful and colorful and you can prepare them both for birthdays and for your children's carnival or school parties.

Cake pops are very versatile sweets, yes because you can replace the sponge cake with a soft cake of your choice, as already mentioned, but you can also replace Nutella with jam as you like. For the covering you can use white and milk chocolate apart from the dark and also you can decorate with chopped almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, but also coconut, white chocolate etc. etc. But let's see in detail how they are prepared in the following recipe.

Recipe (for 30 cake pops)

  • 400 g cocoa sponge cake
  • 4 tablespoons of nutella
  • 400 g dark chocolate
  • colored sprinkles (I Decora)
  • 30 lollipop sticks (I Decorate)

Preparation of chocolate cake pops

Start preparing your chocolate cake pops by crumbling your cocoa sponge cake. Then add the Nutella and knead with your hands until you get a compact dough. Depending on the humidity of the base you use, be it a sponge cake or a donut, you may need more or less nutella so I recommend you pour it a little at a time. At this point, form balls about the size of a walnut, arrange them on a tray and place in the freezer for at least an hour. At this point melt the chocolate in a bain-marie, prepare all the sugars with which you have decided to decorate your cake pops and stick a stick in each ball. Dip each cake pop in the chocolate so that it is completely covered and decorate it with the sprinkles. Then stick it in the styrofoam to dry it.

When all the cake pops are ready, place them in the fridge until ready to serve. They are fantastic sweets you can have fun preparing them even with your children because they are very simple and nothing is cooked. So the next time you have a cake left over, prepare cake pops will be a guaranteed success for adults and children.

To prepare the cake pops I used colored sprinkles and sticks from DECORA on the site you will find a wide assortment of pastry items for any occasion.

Cake Pops

THE Cake Pops they are mini delights, of balls from cake decorated in a refined and sophisticated way. Cake pops are born from the intention to use leftover dessert, which are made even sweeter thanks to chocolate and pralines of all kinds. In this recipe we propose a simple but visually striking version.

  • 400 g of sponge cake
  • 3-4 tablespoons of apricot jam
  • 200 g of 75% dark chocolate
  • 200 g of white chocolate
  • sprinkles

Cake pops are born as sweets designed to reuse leftover cakes, especially sponge cakes or layers of wonderful birthday cakes, the day after the party. Reuse of quality, where the result is often more beautiful than the original cake, decorated, colored, frosted and above all sophisticated. So i Cake Pops they stop being the "meatballs of sweets" and become sweets in their own right, loved by cake designer and not only.

Molds, sticks, decorations and books that explain how to make them begin to spread, it seems, thanks to the queen of cake pops and even cupcakes pops, the American Bakerella.

In this recipe we made them with sponge cake and apricot jam, but you can try it with the yogurt cake dough or with other simple and soft doughs. If you prefer, to mix, you can use mascarpone. For decorate the cake pops have fun with chopped hazelnuts, sprinkles of sugar, grated coconut and, if you like, add a few drops of chocolate food coloring.

Cake pops seem to be made especially for children's parties. Try also the fake banana and chocolate ice creams, the mio miao chocolate puddings or the strawberry meringue ice cream cake.

Finally an Italian recipe of cake pops!
Not that, OV CORZ, I don't know English but Americans use ingredients that look like they came down from Mars! Now that I think about it, my birthday is approaching. an excuse to try them! :)

Scacciapensieri kitchen

Cake Pops are all those sweet-based preparations, which involve the use of a lollipop stick. They can be sweet and colored balls, made of raw or cooked dough, like the ones you already saw on these screens last year, click here, or they can be simple homemade biscuits, shortcrust pastry, shortcrust pastry, pasta browse.
But the fashion of cake pops does not stop there and is also taking place in savory preparations, delicious finger food, tasty and appetizing to be enjoyed in an aperitif with friends.
But now Christmas is approaching and when there are children in the house, this holiday feels even more. My thoughts can only go to them, to the gluttony of their tummies, to their sly eyes in immediately spotting something attractive as soon as they enter a kitchen.
So here they are, the cake pops that I prepared yesterday and that you can make for Christmas Eve, for some birthdays, for themed parties, in short, on any occasion in which your home will be invaded by a fleet of noisy children and irrepressible.

These biscuits are not difficult to prepare, the basic dough is a simple but very good shortcrust pastry that my mother has always used, it is a recipe by Pellegrino Artusi, suitable for cakes and pies and it is demonstrated by the fact that her grandmother's cake is sublime.
The processing of these cake pops is very simple, indeed, I inform you that for me the most difficult part was resisting the temptation to dip a finger in the chocolate ganache during the decoration.
I have also included a couple of step-by-step photos and you can prepare them well in advance, freeze them and cook them on the spot.

Tea and chocolate

Even in the world of pastry you have to adapt and follow trends. especially when you have to organize a small party for a 14 year old girl!
These fun single-portion sweets immediately came to mind. Small to be eaten in a bite, chocolaty and colored to attract attention and perhaps the right excuse to steal a long-awaited first kiss.

But now let's focus on the recipe and avoid thinking about our first loves.

These treats, even if at first it might not seem like it, are ideal for recycling a leftover cake or one that has come off ugly, crooked or broken. the base from which to suffer is in fact a sponge cake or a soft cake like margherita or paradiso.
I did like this:

I started from a base of the classic chocolate cakes:

dark chocolate 150g
butter 100g
egg 2
yolks 2
sugar 55g
sifted flour 2 tbsp

preheat the oven to 180 & # 176C. Melt the butter with the chocolate in a double boiler, stirring occasionally. Put the eggs, egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and whisk vigorously for a few minutes until a light foam appears. Add the flour and chocolate to the egg mixture. mix well and pour the mixture into a lightly greased mold. Bake and cook for about 20-25 minutes until the inside is cooked (you can check this with the toothpick test).
obviously to make cake pops you cannot use them when they are lukewarm. so I would let them rest for at least a day, even better if a few days later. while waiting, wrap them in cling film.

and now we come to the fun part. let's make cake pops!


I can never get the decorations to stick well. or smeared with couverture chocolate. what's the secret to sticking them well..without creating a mess of cream and color? -)

mmm I don't know I can tell you how I did. I melted the chocolate in a bain-marie, then I removed the saucepan from the water and waited a few minutes for the temperature to drop a little. Then I dipped the ball on the toothpick and shook the excess chocolate well. you have to have a little patience and try to shake it gently. then I avoided swirling the ball in the sugars but I sprinkled them on top of the chocolate. to make the coverage more uniform and light. then I immediately put it in the freezer with the help of a support. as I made them I took them to the freezer. so the chocolate congeals immediately and does not have time to pour! I hope I have been of help! let me know how it goes next time!
a big kiss

Chocolate Cake Pops - Recipes

Good afternoon.
Today I want to show you the first Cake pops made :)

For those who do not know them yet, Cake Pops are very fashionable today and are made to accompany birthday cakes or to create wonderful Sweet tables all themed for every occasion.
They are balls of cake that are prepared by crumbling a basic cake and mixing it with a ganache cream, with this dough then the balls are modeled and placed on top of the sticks creating a sort of lollipop.

I made them for a little girl's birthday so I chose light and delicate colors to decorate them but they can be done in many ways really, and if you are better also in other forms.

To make them you can use any type of dry, white, cocoa, chocolate cake. in short, the one you like best.
I am writing here the cake I chose and the procedure I followed)


  • 250 ml of seed oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 85 g of bitter cocoa
  • 350 g of sugar
  • 250 ml of boiling water
  • 250 g of flour + 8 g of baking powder + 1 teaspoon of baking soda

Once the cake is taken out of the oven, let it cool well and in the meantime prepare the ganache.

When everything is cold, crumble the cake into a bowl and add the ganache a little at a time, you will have to obtain a very moldable dough similar to the consistency of shortcrust pastry.
With this dough you make many balls, mine weighed 30 g each. :)
Place them on a tray covered with baking paper and let them rest in the fridge overnight or for a day. (I made them in the morning and kept them until the evening).
After this time you will have to melt some dark chocolate in a bain-marie, then dip the tip of the toothpick in the chocolate and then pierce your cake balls.
When you have joined each ball to its toothpick, put them back in the fridge for another half hour. I left them all night and covered them the next day.

For the coating you will have to melt more chocolate, then keeping the cake pops by the stick, dip the ball in the chocolate and then let the excess pour out. You can also lightly tap the hand holding the toothpick. I recommend that everything must be done very gently so that the ball does not come off the stick.
To let the chocolate dry completely you will need to get a polystyrene base in which to insert the toothpicks to ensure that the cake pops remain standing.
When the chocolate is dry you can move on to the decoration.

If you intend to decorate the Cake pops with some sugar paste flowers like I did, you can also add them when the chocolate has solidified. Just stick them with a little water or even a drop of chocolate.
If, however, you want to decorate the cake pops with colored sprinkles then you will have to dip the balls directly into the sprinkles when the chocolate is not yet dry otherwise you risk that they won't stick anymore)

You can finish your cake pops with a satin ribbon bow on the toothpick :)

The process is long but very simple indeed! you just need to arm yourself with a little patience)
