Ingredients
  

For the Chocolate Cake:

  • 1 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

For the Cake Pops:

  • Candy melt chocolate variety of colors if desired
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Sprinkles optional for decoration
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup frosting just enough to bind the cake crumbs

Instructions
 

Bake the Chocolate Cake:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan.
  • In a large bowl, stir together sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed for about 2 minutes until well combined.
  • Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.

Prepare the Cake Balls:

  • Once the cake is completely cooled, crumble it into a large bowl.
  • Add a small amount of frosting (about 1/4 to 1/2 cup) to the cake crumbs. Mix with your hands or a mixer until the mixture is just moist enough to hold together. Add more frosting if needed, but be careful not to add too much.
  • Roll the mixture into small balls (about 1 inch in diameter) and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Dip the tip of each lollipop stick into the melted candy and then insert it into a cake ball (about halfway through). This helps to secure the stick to the cake ball.
  • Chill the cake balls in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to firm up.

Cover the Cake Pops:

  • Melt the candy melts according to the package instructions. If the candy melt is too thick, you can add a small amount of vegetable oil to thin it out.
  • Dip each cake pop into the melted candy until fully coated. Gently tap off any excess.
  • Place the cake pops upright in a styrofoam block or a cake pop stand to allow the coating to harden. If desired, add sprinkles before the coating hardens completely.

Serve and Enjoy:

  • Once the candy coating has fully set, your cake pops are ready to be served.
  • Enjoy your homemade chocolate cake pops as a delightful treat!

Notes

Be careful not to add too much frosting when mixing the cake crumbs, as this can make the cake pops too dense.
• If the candy melts are too thick, add a small amount of vegetable oil to thin them out.
• For extra decoration, you can use colored candy melts, sprinkles, or edible glitter.
