  • Notes:

    • For evenly-sized cake balls: Use a cookie scooper to scoop the cake mixture, then roll the mixture with your hands to form balls.
    • Cracked cake pops troubleshooting: To keep the candy coating of your cake pops from cracking, let your red velvet cake balls warm up to room temperature before dipping them into the warm Candy Melts. Let the dipped pops sit at room temperature for 5 to 7 minutes before placing them in the fridge so the candy can have time to cool.
    • To freeze dipped cake pops:Place the cake pops in a large reusable freezer bag. Cake pops will last in the freezer for up to 6 weeks.
    • To freeze undipped cake pops: If you want to prep your cake balls and freeze them, store them in a large freezer bag and keep in the freezer for up to 6 weeks. Let your red velvet cake balls come to room temperature before dipping.
