Perfect for any holiday, just switch up the decorative colors. A few other Valentine’s Day dessert recipes I love making for the occasion are Homemade Chocolate Cake, Mixed Berry Pie, Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta and Chocolate Crepes with Strawberries. You can also check out this full list of Valentine’s Day recipes.

I love how you can come up with hundreds of different ideas with this Nordic Ware Cake Pop Pan I purchased at Target. I highly recommend buying 2 pans if you plan on making these to speed this up.

I simply took my recipe and used colored candy melts in place of the white, with heart sprinkles. So cute!

Happy Valentine's Day! My daughter is having a Valentine's Day party in school today, so I just wanted to share these cake pops adapted from my skinny cake pop recipe I did a few months back to bring to her class.

Ingredients

  • 16.5 oz package yellow cake mix, or flavor of your choice
  • 6 oz plain fat-free Greek yogurt, Chobani
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • baking spray
  • 48 oz Wilton colored candy melts, 20 oz used total, calculated in n.i*
  • sprinkles
  • mini cupcake liners

Instructions

  • 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 white chocolate melts in the microwave according to package directions, careful not to burn the chocolate. Insert the tip of a bamboo stick into the melted chocolate, then into the cake ball (this helps hold the stick in place) and dip each ball into the chocolate, then onto a sheet of wax paper.
  • Repeat with remaining balls and chocolate. When the chocolate hardens, place into mini cupcake liners and top with sprinkles and drizzle with chocolate if desired.
  • Makes 48-50 balls.

Notes

*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.

  2. Would this recipe work the same if I used a red velvet or chocolate cake mix instead of the yellow cake mix? Or would anything change? They look delicious!

  3. i love kane and enjoy valentine day with him

  4. Gina, I am definitely making these for a St. Patrick's Party! Also making your guacamole deviled eggs! Thank you for all your recipe inspirations!

  5. Can you use a mini muffin tin instead?

  6. OK these looked so easy and fun I started looking for cake pop pans since someone commented they found them on clearance! So I found some too at BBB. Bake Pop Pans. Unfortunately not the same ones Gina used, but was rated great and makes 18 at a time! So I ran out this morning and bought 2 @ $9.99 each plus the coupons they give. I am excited to try these with my girls and thanks for lightening these up!!

  7. I can't wait to try this recipe!! Do you think I could use gluten free flour and they would come out the same? I'd love to make them for a birthday or something.. Thank you for the recipe!!

  9. Love this recipe. I am going to make them for mu daughters 3rd birthday party next month. I am going to use pinks and purples. Also, I was able to buy the cake pop pans on Friday at Target in the Valentine Clearance section for 50% off. I also bought the Valentine sugars and sprinkles to decorate them with. Thank you again for all your posts.

  10. These are so cute! What a perfect treat.

  11. I love your web site. It is absolutely beautiful! I recommend it to everyone that I work with and I always check your site when I'm looking for a new recipe. Just want you to know how much I appreciate the creativity that you put into the work you do. Amazing!

  12. Oh Gina, this has to be one of the cutest recipes I've found for cake pop Ideas, they're like little cake truffles. Thank you for the tips and directions. I am a big proponent to portion sizes (mostly because it's hard to moderate my eyes to stomach ratio). Cake pops are a perfect little treat. I've had my eye on the pan at Target for sometime and put off getting. I think I will now. Any tips for melting white chocolate?

  13. So adorable! What cake pop pan do you use? I haven't found a good one yet.

  14. These are just lovely, Gina! I bet the kiddos LOVED them.
