Learn how to make these adorable conversation heart cake pops for Valentine’s Day!! A cake pop version of Sweethearts! Personalize them however you. Even make them anti Valentine’s Day pops! 😉
What you’ll need:
1/2 boxed cake mix, baked according to package instructions
1/2 cup (or less) prepared frosting
Wilton Candy Melts or candy coating
Americolor Super Red food coloring
Take the baked and cooled cake and crumble it into small crumbs. Add in frosting and stir to mix well. Pack into heart shaped molds and then refrigerate or freeze until firm. Remove from molds and insert the lollipop sticks. Carefully and slowly twist the sticks as you insert them. Set onto a silicone mat lined cookie sheet or parchment paper and refrigerate again.
Meanwhile, prepare the candy coating by choosing several different colors of candy melts. Put 2oz (about 1/4 cup) of each color into separate bowls. Add in 1 tsp vegetable oil to each bowl and microwave for 30 seconds, stir and again for another 30 seconds. Stir until candy is melted and oil is incorporated. Dip the cake pops into the candy coating until evenly covered. Tap off excess and set onto a silicone baking mat or parchment to dry thoroughly.
Combine 2-3 drops of the tri-coat with 1 drop of red food coloring and mix well. Using a fine tip paint brush, paint on the sayings. Let dry for an hour and then arrange the pops as you so choose. Makes about (24) 1-1/4″ heart pops. Enjoy!!
