Equipment

  • Colored Treat Sticks
  • Sprinkles
  • Microwave-safe bowl
  • mixing spoon

Ingredients

  • 12 plain donut holes
  • 2 cups white chocolate melting wafers
  • 1 oz Sprinkles

Instructions

PREP DONUT HOLES:

  • Prepare donut holes for dipping by giving a quick roll between your palms and determining where you will place your stick. I like to make sure the smoothest rounded side is at the top of the cake pop.

MELT CHOCOLATE:

  • Melt the wafers according to package directions.

DIP DONUTS:

  • Carefully dip each cake pop stick into the melted chocolate and stick into the cake pop. Allow to cool upside down.
  • When the chocolate has cooled, carefully dip each cake pop in the chocolate rotating until fully coated.

DECORATE CAKE POPS:

  • For plain cake pops, drizzle on extra chocolate once the first layer is set.
  • For drizzled/sprinkled cake pops, drizzle on extra chocolate once the first layer is set and immediately add sprinkles.
  • For sprinkle coated cake pops, allow the coating to set for 10 seconds then dip into sprinkles and rotate until fully coated.

SERVE OR STORE:

  • Serve right away or store.
  • Do not store the cake pops in the fridge or freezer. The chocolate will sweat when brought to room temperature. This causes the sprinkles to bleed. If storing overnight, store at room temperature in either an airtight container or cover with plastic wrap.

Notes

  • Melt the chocolate according to the package directions. We prefer to use a double broiler. Or, use a small saucepan with a glass bowl over the top.
  • If your chocolate is too thick, you can add coconut or vegetable oil ½ teaspoon at a time to thin the chocolate if needed.
  • When adding the second layer of chocolate drizzle, make sure the chocolate is close to room temperature to ensure the layers don’t crack or separate.
  • Give the donut hole a quick shaping between your palms before placing it on the stick.
  • If you have lumpy donut holes, use those ones to fully coat in sprinkles. It helps hide the flaws!
