Valentine’s Day: Red Velvet Cake Pops

Red velvet is a popular flavor with cakes and cookies. Now that cake pops are a popular and common baked good, I had to make a red velvet version. I wanted to make sure that I kept the integrity of the typical flavors of the red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. I also knew I wanted to make the pops look festive for Valentine’s Day.

I decided to find some Valentine’s sprinkles for the top of the pops. The colors of the sprinkles in contrast to the white chocolate shell is particularly pretty.

  • tablespoon sized cookie scoop
  • cake pop sticks
  • cake pop stand or block of styrofoam
  • parchment paper or silicone baking mat


  • 15.25 oz red velvet cake mix
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • cup cold milk
  • 3.5 oz white chocolate pudding mix
  • cup cream cheese frosting
  • 10 oz white chocolate melting chips
  • festive sprinkles


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, milk, and pudding mix. Whisk on medium low to combine. Bake in a 13×9 inch baking sheet according to the directions on the cake mix box. Let cool complete before forming into cake pops.
  • In a large mixng bowl, crumble the entire cake, breaking it up so there are no chunks. Add in the frosting. Using your hands, mix together until completely combined.
  • On a baking sheet lined with either a silicone pad or parchment paper, scoop the dough onto the baking sheet until all of the dough has been used. Then roll each scoop into a smooth ball.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, pour in the milk chocolate baking chips and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between each 30 seconds until the white baking chips are completely melted. This usually takes me 1:30-2 minutes.Take the lollipop sticks and dip one end into the melted chips and stick into the rolled balls of dough. Repeat this step until every ball of dough has a lollipop stick. Place in freezer for 20 minutes
  • When the cake pops have been in the freezer long enough, take out and dip each pop in the melted milk chocolate chips. You may find you need to do another 30 second increment or 2 in the microwave. Use a spoon to help the melted chips coat the pops completely. Place the stick in a piece of styrofoam so the cake pop will stand while the melted chips harden. Stick a mini marshmallow on the top, and sprinkle with festive sprinkles before the melted chips harden. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container for up to a week.
