Key Lime Shamrock Cake Pops


Key Lime Shamrock Cake Pops

Items needed:

1 box Key Lime Cake Mix

2/3 cup Cream Cheese Frosting


1 bag Vanilla Candy Wafers
2 (14-ounce) bags Green Candy Wafers
Vegetable Oil
Green Sprinkles
Shamrock Cookie Cutter
Lollipop Sticks
Double Boiler
Treat bags
Ribbon
Large piece of Styrofoam
Foil

DIRECTIONS:

Lay out a couple of ungreased pans, set aside. Cover a large piece of Styrofoam with foil, set 


aside. Prepare and bake cake according to package directions. Remove from oven and let cool 

completely. Break apart cake and place in a large bowl, then crumble completely. Stir in frosting, 

then blend together with hands until you have the texture of play-doh. Melt a small amount of 

vanilla candy wafers in a small bowl, set aside. Place some of the dough on a work surface, then 

flatten to 1 inch thick. Using your cookie cutter, carefully cut out a shamrock. Lay flat on pan, 

then dip tip of lollipop stick into melted candy and insert a little ways into bottom of the 

shamrock. Repeat until all dough is used. *You will need to melt your vanilla candy wafers every 

so often to continue use. Place in the freezer for several hours. Just before removing from 

freezer, melt 1 bag of the green candy color wafers and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in a double 

boiler until completely melted. Remove 1 cake pop at a time from the freezer. Dip the front and 

back of the cake pop in the melted candy. Use a spoon to drizzle the candy coating near the 

stick, making sure to coat completely with the melted candy. Top with sprinkles and place in 

styrofoam. Continue to dip 1 at a time. Save leftover hardened candy in bowl, set aside. Let 

cake pops sit for several hours to set. Reheat leftover hardened candy in bowl and use to seal 

any cracks in coating. Place back in styrofoam to harden. Place a treat bag over each cake pop 

and tie with ribbon.

*You will need to use 3 tablespoons vegetable oil for each bag of candy wafers.
