The perfect recipe for that truly patriotic Independence Day Celebration.
  • 1 box of your favorite cake mix (plus all ingredients needed, as listed on box), or your favorite from scratch cake recipe
  • ¾ can prepared cream cheese frosting
  • White or blue chocolate melts (I prefer to use the Wilton brand)
  • Red chocolate melts (I prefer to use the Wilton brand)
  • White sprinkles (the ones that look like little balls)
  • Supplies:
  • 1 Waxed paper
  • 50 lollipop sticks
  1. Bake cake as directed on package or in recipe.
  2. When completely cool, break the cake into crumbs by hand in a large bowl. Mix in full can of frosting until well blended.
  3. Roll the cake mixture into 1-inch balls and place on waxed paper.
  4. Melt the candy melts as directed or in a melting pot.
  5. Dip a lollipop stick about ½ inch into the melted chocolate and insert the stick into the rounded part of a cake ball. Repeat for remaining cake balls.
  6. Place the cake pops in the freezer for about 10 minutes, or in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes, to firm.
  7. Once the pops are firm, remove from the fridge/freezer and dip each into the melted chocolate, tapping excess chocolate off.
  8. For the “stars” of your flag, blue candy-making melting chocolate. For the “stripes” pops, use the red candy melts.
  9. Prop up pops, cake end down, on waxed paper while the chocolate is still slightly warm, so the candy hardens into a flat surface at the top (this will help your pops stand up when serving).
  10. Finish the blue pops with white sprinkles before chocolate coating hardens.
  11. Drizzle white chocolate over the red pops after chocolate coating hardens.
  12. Line up your pops to create the Stars & Stripes on a tray.
