Love is in the air! I’m back at it again with the Cakesicles! Similar to the Christmas Cakesicles, I made, these are just as delicious! The cake inside is leftover Chocolate Mousse and they are coated in either white or milk chocolate.

Box Cake Directions Here
- If using left over cake, add cake in bowl big enough to fit the cake. Add whatever toping your desire as I did with the almonds and dried cranberries.
- Using a wooden spoon, mix all ingredients together until it forms a big dough.
- Wrap in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
- Pour the candy melts into a microwave safe bowls and melt at 100% power for 1 minute. Stir the candy melts and then heat again at 70% power for 45 seconds. Stir the candy. It should be completely melted.
- Make sure that the popsicle mold is clean and dry. Add a tablespoon of melted candy into the cavities and spread up the sides to coat the edges. I like using a paint brush for this.
- Pop the try into the fridge for 5 minutes to harden. If you see any holes or missed spots, add more candy melts and wait for it to harden.
- Measure out a tablespoon of the cake pop dough and press it into the hard candy. Insert the wooden popsicle sticks and press the dough down so that it is below the lip of the mold.
- Spoon over some melted candy to coat the back of the pop. Scrape off any excess candy and place in the fridge for 5 minutes to harden.
- Carefully remove the cake popsicles from the molds. Repeat this process until all the cake pop dough is used up. You should get about 12 cakesicles from half a cake. Obviously less if you don’t have much of as much leftover cake.
- Give the cakesicles some time to come to room temperature before decorating them.
- This is where you get create and add any decorations on top. If you want to add sprinkles, drizzle any leftover chocolate top of each pop then add the sprinkle while they are still wet.
1) I added the melted chocolate to Ziploc bags, cut the tips and drizzled the each cake pops.
2) I added used leftover white chocolate and dyed them red and pink to make hearts and X designs using a mold.
