  • 1 Red Velvet cake boxed mix baked and cooled.
  • 1 cup buttercream frosting can use store bought
  • 36 ounce Red Candy Coating melts
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • Heart Sprinkles


  • Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on the box or use a homemade cake mix.
  • Allow the baked red velvet cake to cool for about 30 minutes. If you need it to cool faster then you can remove it from the baking dish and put it into a large bowl.
  • Crumble cake into a large bowl.
  • Add the frosting and mix thoroughly with hands.
  • Measure cake mixture and roll into 1″ sized balls.
  • Place on a wax paper lined baking sheet.
  • Place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to firm up.
  • While the cake balls are in the fridge melt the candy melts and the shortening together. I find the best way to do so is using a double boiler, but you can use the directions on the package to melt them, and melt them In a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments.
  • Dip the lollipop stick in a small amount of coating before inserting into the cake ball.
  • Dip cake pops in melted candy and allow excess coating to drip off by tapping your wrist and place in a cake pop stand, Styrofoam block or a box with holes to set.
  • Before the coating is dry add a Valentine’s Day Sprinkles on top.
