Cakesicles (Easy Cake Popsicles!)

These easy cakesicles are a fun spin on the traditional cake pop. While they look professionally made, they're surprisingly easy to make. With only three ingredients these are going to be your new go-to sweet treats.
Cake popsicles are great for birthday parties, a special occasion, or to have around the house. They're just a tad bigger than cake pops which makes them a great single serving dessert.

Ingredients

Cake Filling

  • 2 8 inch round baked cakes in your favorite flavor
  • 1/2 cup prepared frosting

Chocolate Shell

  • 32 ounces melted milk chocolate OR melted almond bark/candy coating

Instructions

Cake Filling

  • Crumble your prepared cake mix
  • Thoroughly mix it with the frosting until a smooth texture is reached and everything is incorporated

Chocolate Coating

  • Using a spoon, put 1 tablespoonful of chocolate into one 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch popsicle mold at a time (if you are using the 2x3 inch larger molds, use 1 1/2-2 tablespoons instead)
  • Smooth the chocolate into a thin layer all around the mold making sure to coat the bottom and go up the sides, repeat with all of your popsicle cavities
  • Slide a popsicle stick in to place in all the molds and add a bit extra chocolate around each to secure them
  • Place the mold into the refrigerator to chill for 5 minutes until the chocolate shell hardens
  • Gently press 1 tablespoonful of the cake filling in the hard chocolate coated molds (smaller) leaving a small space at the top for the additional chocolate layer, repeat with all of your popsicle cavities (for 2x3 larger molds, use 1 1/2-2 tablespoons of cake filling)
  • Spoon a teaspoon of chocolate for 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 molds and 1 1/2 teaspoon for the 2x3 larger molds over top and spread it to cover all cake, repeat with all of your popsicle cavities
  • Use an offset spatula or scraper, remove any extra chocolate making it a flat line level with the mold
  • Chill for 5 minutes in the refrigerator until the chocolate layer hardens then unmold the cakesicles by gently pulling back the mold from the chocolate and sliding out the popsicle stick from the mold
  • Decorate the molds with more melted chocolate in different colors and top with sprinkles right after, or use frosting to stick edible gems on them

Notes

How long to cakesicles stay fresh?You can keep cakesicles for 1-2 days at room temperature, 1 week in the fridge, or up to 1 month in the freezer. Storing them in plastic wrap or an airtight container will preserve freshness.
What do you dip Cakesicles in?You can dip cakesicles in a melted chocolate bar, colored candy melts, white chocolate chips, regular chocolates, or any kind of chocolate. It's up to personal preference and what you have on hand.
Do cakesicles need to be refrigerated?No you don't need to refrigerate cakesicles unless the cake filling requires refrigeration. Most cake does not need to be refrigerated therefor you're fine keeping the cake pops at room temperature.
Pro tip: Melt chocolate chips with coconut oil or cocoa butter in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second intervals to avoid burning. Coconut oil will also help the chocolate harden.
