Chocolate-Coffee Cake Pops

Red, White & Blue!!

I couldn’t think of a better way to spend Independence Day than with a little family BBQ, fireworks, & some festive CAKE POPS. For me, it was one last get together before I headed off to Los Angeles to start my big girl job. That’s right, my days of moping on blog posts & being unemployed are soon to be of the past. I’m hoping my new employment status doesn’t equate to a hiatus from the blog world, so I’ll make an effort to continue with the kitchen adventures every now & then. Might be kind of hard without my mom’s nifty Canon on hand to take pictures! Happy Belated 4th of July!! XOXO....little j Y

Chocolate-Coffee Cake Pops
*Makes 50-60+ depending on size

1 box Devil’s Food Cake mix {+ eggs, oil, H20, 2+ Tbsp instant espresso}
¾ tub Whipped Cream Cheese frosting
1 lb. bag dark chocolate candy melts {2 lbs if you plan on making a lot!}
2-3 tsp instant espresso + more to your preference
4-inch lollipop sticks
sprinkles for decorating

Use the Red Velvet Cake Pops' recipe as a guide. Add instant espresso to cake batter before baking. Add more instant espresso to dipping chocolate during the melting process. Make sure cake dough has hardened a bit in the fridge/freezer before attempting to dip in chocolate. You’ll know it’s not cold enough if the cake keeps falling of the stick. Dip, decorate with sprinkles, set aside to harden & enjoy!!

festive Cake Pops!


  1. These are so adorable. I haven't fallen in love with cake pops but yours are so cute, I think I need to give them another try!

  2. My sister's favorite was the Chocolate Coffee Cake Pops that she got from one of her friends. She always talks about it whenever we meet! I’m definitely making this! thanks for sharing!
