Trick-or-treaters, faux cobwebs and ransacked Party City shelves: it’s Halloween once again. Whether you’re attending a costume party or staying in and marathoning classic horror films, this cake pop recipe is sure to get you into the ~spooky spirit~.

The Cake Pop Base
What You’ll Need
  • 1 box of yellow Betty Crocker Super Moist Cake Mix
  • A 13″ by 9” baking pan
  • ½ cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of water
  • A 13″ by 9” baking pan
  • 1 container of vanilla icing
What You’ll Do
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together the cake mix, vegetable oil and water, and beat in the three eggs.
  3. Pour the mixture into the baking pan and bake for 30 minutes.
  4. Take the cake out of the oven and wait until it is completely cool before proceeding
  5. Take a knife and cut off the edges and sides of the cake. The consistency around the edges is harder and not ideal for cake pops.
  6. Crumble the remaining cake with your hands, then add in ½ cup of vanilla icing and knead together.
  7. Start rolling the mixture into small balls and place them on a serving platter.

What You’ll Need
What You’ll Do
  1. Take your white chocolate morsels and pour them into a microwavable dish. Microwave for about one minute and a half.
  2. Take the bowl out of the microwave and mix the softened chocolate until smooth.
  3. Dip the end of the lollipop sticks into the chocolate, then insert them into the top of the cake balls.
  4. Once finished, place the cake balls into the freezer for about 20 minutes.
  5. After 20 minutes, take the platter out of the freezer, re-heat the chocolate morsels and dip each cake pop completely into the chocolate, covering the entire surface.
  6. Add the eyeball candy to the center of the cake pop, and draw in veins with the red gel icing.
  7. Stick each completed cake pop into the styrofoam block so their round shape stays intact.
  8. Place cake pops into the fridge until ready to serve.

And there you have it: the perfect Halloween treat! Enjoy the holiday, witches.
