Ingredients

  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix
  • 1 cup of water
  • ½ cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of cream cheese frosting
  • 24 green candy melts
  • 24 red candy hearts
  • 24 cake pop sticks
  • Green food coloring

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the chocolate cake mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs. Mix until well combined.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Allow the cake to cool completely, then crumble it into a large bowl using your hands or a fork.
  5. Add 1 cup of cream cheese frosting to the crumbled cake and mix until well combined. The mixture should be sticky and hold its shape when rolled into a ball.
  6. Using your hands, shape the cake mixture into small balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Place the cake balls on a lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  7. In the meantime, melt the green candy melts according to the package instructions. Add a few drops of green food coloring to achieve the desired shade of green.
  8. Remove the cake balls from the refrigerator. Dip the tip of each cake pop stick into the melted candy melts, then insert it halfway into a cake ball. Repeat with all the cake balls.
  9. Dip each cake pop into the melted green candy melts, making sure to coat it completely. Tap off any excess coating, then place the cake pop back on the lined baking sheet.
  10. While the coating is still wet, gently press a red candy heart onto the top of each cake pop to create the Grinch’s heart-shaped Santa hat.
  11. Repeat with the remaining cake balls. Once all the cake pops are coated and decorated, refrigerate them for another 30 minutes to allow the coating to set.
  12. Serve and enjoy these delightful and festive Grinch Cake Pops!
