Skinny Cake Pops



Cake pops made lighter by using a box cake mix, egg whites and fat free Greek yogurt – no oil, no butter required!


Today is my daughter Madison's 3rd birthday!


She is having a little birthday party in school and I was asked to bring something that wasn't too messy, so I thought cake pops would be perfect! But then I remembered lollipop sticks and 3 yr olds aren't such a great idea, so after thumbing though the Bakerella Cake Pops book for ideas we decided on cake balls that look like little cupcakes.


Cake pops are all the rave thanks to the very talented Bakerella, but using the traditional method of crumbling the cake with frosting adds a lot of calories to each pop. The only way to make them lighter is by using a cake pop pan, rather than the original method; it's quicker and easier too! I tested out my lighter cake box recipe to see how they would turn out, and it worked like a charm!

I played around with a few cake pop pans and machines out there and realized they are not all created equal. After testing out a bunch of them, I had huge success with the Nordicware cake pop pan, which is only about $16 at Target.


So today, in honor of my daughter's birthday I am giving away the Nordicware Cake Pop Pan, and Bakerella's Cake Pop Book on Skinny Bits (courtesy of Target). Giveaway ends Wednesday evening, so hurry!

Now be warned, these are FAR lighter than traditional cake pops, but they are dipped in chocolate, which will add up if you eat a lot, so you'll still need some self control! Dark chocolate, of course is the healthiest option, but for color purposes today I went with white chocolate. Candy melts (available at Michael's) were used for my daughter's cake balls.

Servings:
48 • Size: 1 cake pop • Old Points: 2 pts • Points+: 3 pt
Calories:
102.5 • Fat: 4 g • Carb: 15 g • Fiber: 0 g • Protein: 1.4 g • Sugar: 7 g
Sodium:
68 mg


Ingredients:
  • 16.5 oz package yellow cake mix
  • 6 oz plain fat-free Greek yogurt (Chobani)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • baking spray
  • 48 oz Baker's white chocolate (20 oz calculated in n.i)*
  • sprinkles (optional)
  • 48-50 lollipop sticks
  • styrofoam block

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a the cake pop pan with baking spray.


Combine all the cake ingredients in a large mixing bowl and beat until combined. Place the batter into a pastry bag or large ziplock bag with the tip cut off.



Pipe the batter into the prepared cake pop pan and bake about 18 minutes (I rotated the pan after 10 minutes to be sure they baked evenly). Let it rest 5 minutes before opening the pan.


Place cake balls on a wire rack and repeat with remaining batter. Using a scissor, cut the seam off the balls.

Refrigerate the cake balls for about 45 minutes, this helps the chocolate stick to the cake.


Melt some of the chocolate in the microwave according to package directions, careful not to burn the chocolate. Insert the tip of the stick into the melted chocolate, then into the cake ball (this helps hold the stick in place).




In batches, melt remaining chocolate. Dip the cake pops into the chocolate, let the excess drip off then place stick on a styrofoam block about a minute, then add sprinkles on top if using.



Makes 48-50 balls.

*I weighed the chocolate on each ball to calculate the nutritional info. Although the recipe calls for 48 oz of chocolate, not all of it will be used, but you will still need to buy extra so you have enough to coat the cake balls. I calculated 0.4 oz of chocolate on each cake ball.

  3. These are beautiful! Way to lighten up such a sweet dessert. The pan seems much easier than forming and freezing the balls.

  4. What a great idea. I always wondered about the molds. My sister-in-law has started up a business selling cake pops and she's doing really great so far.

  5. OH MY! I'd like the cake pops with or without the frosting! I never thought of using greek yogurt in a cake mix. Great idea! And a cake pop pan would be a great way to portion control!

  13. I would love to try making these, they look like so much fun!

  14. Those look wonderful and so much healthier than any of the other cake pops I've seen.

  15. I wonder if this would work in a mini muffin pan??? Since I have one of those and not a cake pop pan.

  16. Such a cool recipe. whenever I bake cakes or cupcakes (which really only happens a couple of times a year) I do like to use the Greek yogurt substitution. Why didn't I think to do the same with cake pops?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks for this, I know what is going on my Christmas list. I do not like the mess and calories of the other method.

  18. I love cakepops and I know a certain almost 3 year old that needs this for her birthday soon!

  22. Hmm...I was with you up until the cutting off the seam part :P Seems like a lot of work - esp for 48! No matter...I'll keep it in the back of my mind. I've made some the original way, but that was before I was a WW - don't want to think about how many calories they were! :)

  23. Happy birthday! What a beautiful little girl!

    How do we enter the giveaway?

  24. what a fun idea...I may do this for my son's birthday in January!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I too have found that the inexpensive NordicWare cake pop pan from Target works best. I haven't needed to "cut off" any seams though. Maybe I'm just lucky. Thank you, I've been wanting a "skinny" cake pop recipe.

  26. I love this idea! Hopefully mine will turn out as cute as yours!

  30. This looks way healthier than mixing a prepared cake with frosting and then shaping into balls and then dipping in chocolate on top of that!

    ReplyDelete
  31. What a great idea! I would love to give this a try.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh goodness. Those look delish. What a lucky 3 year old ;-) They sure would make my 8 and 6 yr olds happy .... And maybe this 40 yr old too ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I make cake balls by making a cake, crumbling and then mixing with frosting, then shaping into balls. Those are cake balls. There is a difference between cake balls and cake pops. These are just cake on a stick basically. Not the same (although I'm sure they taste great).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Cake in the shape of balls... cake balls! Yes, the original method is with frosting as I mentioned above, but they certainly aren't skinny.

      Delete
    2. Clearly stated these were different. So why the need to point that out? This a a SKINNY recipe.

  36. what a pretty girl, happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I did this a couple years ago as an experiment and i liked them more than the full fat ones. I didn't use a cake ball pan (because they didn't exist) so I used either liquor or preserves as the binder for the cake to make them into balls. The lemon cake/raspberry preserve ones were tasty, but looked like meatballs when they were undipped. The dark choc cake/peppermint schnapps ones were amazing.

  49. I've made a lot of cake pops but I've never used a cake pop pan. I'd love to try it someday and to be able to make healthier versions of cake pops with less difficulty. I'll have to try and pick up a pan the next time that I go to target.

  53. I've been loving Starbucks peppermint chocolate cake pops for the holidays. I'm guessing you could revise this and use chocolate cake with a drop of peppermint oil or some extract and then also dip in white chocolate?

  54. Oh, that's good to know about the pan. I tried cake pops once, and they were too heavy and moist for my taste. That could make these a much better treat for my family!

    Cute little girl you have there!

  56. Wow! I never would have thought of this!!! But with a toddler and lots of toddler friends, we're always being invited to something that involves cake and ice cream. I wonder if I could offer to bring some of these lighter calorie ones to the party for those of us wanting to eat healthier ;) The cake pop pan idea is genius!!!!

  66. I really want one of these :-) More so for making doughnut holes, than cake pops. Cake pops are fun to make too. I made caramel apple ones with my daughter over her Thanksgiving break. We did it the old fashioned way though. Crumbling the cake & adding the frosting.

  154. I found that this made far fewer than 48-50. Perhaps you are an excellent bowl scraper, but I made about 40 from the recipe. I'm also finding that I will definitely use less chocolate than listed, as well. So I'm thinking the points will just about even out. Great job Gina! Without you I would either have more jiggly parts round my middle or be miserable eating real diet food!

    1. Also for people who are worried that the trimming of the seam takes a lot of time, it is super quick and definitely worth the extra step!

  157. Okay, so I've searched through all the comments, and apparently I am the only one having this issue. I am not a baker... AT ALL, but this seemed like something even I can handle. The problem I'm having is with the chocolate. I used 11oz bags of Ghirardelli white chocolate morsels. I melted one bag at a time. The chocolate did not melt down thin enough for me to coat the pops. They would get stuck in the chocolate. What am I doing wrong??

  159. This looks really nice and I have always been searching for a free butter cake. But can I change the white chocolate with dark one instead or not?
