Print Recipe


  • 15.25 ounces strawberry cake mix 432 grams (1 box), such as Pillsbury
  • 1 cup water 227 grams
  • ½ cup vegetable oil 100 grams
  • 3 large eggs 150 grams
  • 2 tablespoons white frosting 33 grams
  • 12 ounces milk chocolate chips 340 grams
  • Sprinkles optional, for garnish


  • Prepare the cake mix with the water, oil, and eggs. Bake in a 9x13-inch baking pan according to the package instructions.
    15.25 ounces strawberry cake mix, 1 cup water, ½ cup vegetable oil, 3 large eggs
  • Allow cake to cool completely. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Crumble the entire cake in a large bowl with a fork.
  • Add the frosting and work it into the cake crumbs with your hands until it forms a ball. Add more frosting, 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed to get the right consistency.
    2 tablespoons white frosting
  • Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place them onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Melt a small amount of chocolate chips. Dip skewers into melted chocolate and then push them into the cake pops.
    12 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Melt remaining chocolate chips. Dip each cake pop in melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off.
  • Add sprinkles quickly before chocolate hardens.
  • Chill until ready for serving.


  • Make sure you’re adding your sprinkles to your chocolate as quickly as possible. Once the chocolate hardens, the sprinkles won’t stick to it!
  • You can use other toppings on your cake pops, including sugar sprinkles or chopped nuts, depending on what you like.
  • Use your hands when mixing the frosting in with the cake to ensure that you’re covering all the cake pieces.
Storage: Store cake pops in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
