Witch’s Cauldron Halloween Cake Pops Recipe

I wanted to make some super fun treats for Halloween and decided to make some Witch’s Cauldrons.

Witch's Cauldron Halloween Cake Pops¬†Aren’t these cake pops cute!! I loved making them. They do take a little bit more work than the single colored cake pops but they are worth it! You would be the talk of the party if you made these.

Witch's Cauldron Halloween Cake Pops Recipe
  • 1 box cake
  • 1 container of icing
  • candy melts (I used black, yellow, and vibrant green)
  • sugar pearls - green
  • edible markers (red)
  • cake pop sticks
  • Styrofoam (to place your cake pops in to dry)
  1. Make your box cake according to the instructions using a 9x13 pan.
  2. Once your cake is cool, crumble the cake in a large bowl.
  3. Add icing a little bit at a time until you easily form a ball and it sticks together well.
  4. Make into balls and place on a wax paper covered cookie sheet.
  5. Freeze the balls for at least 2 hours.
  6. After the 2 hours is up, melt the black candy melts.
  7. Dip a cake pop stick into the candy melt and place it in a ball. Repeat.
  8. Then dip the cake pops into the black candy melt to fully cover the cake pops and place them on a wax paper covered cookie sheet. This will create a flat bottom for the cauldron.
  9. Once the black candy has hardened, melt a bit of the yellow candy melt.
  10. Place the melted yellow candy melts in zip-lock bag. Cut a small hole in a corner that will allow you to pipe the yellow onto the base of the cauldrons to create the fire.
  11. Once the Yellow is dry, take your red edible marker to add to the fire.
  12. Place the sticks into the Styrofoam so you can work on the top of the cauldrons.
  13. Melt some of the vibrant green candy melts. Place it in a zip-lock back like the yellow.
  14. Pipe the green onto the top of the cauldron and even drop some down the side to make the brew.
  15. Take a toothpick and make swirls in the brew. Place some of the green sugar pearls on the brew before the candy melt dries.

These cake pops turned out O-So-Good! They were a big hit around this house.
