Nutrition Information

1. Food process your cake. Or crumble by hand if you don’t have a food processor.

2. Mix the cake crumbs with your icing (I used about 1/2 of the jar but you may need to just add it slowly to get the right mix). You want it to be almost like dough but not too much icing. Then roll and form into balls. Place on wax or parchment paper.

Roll Into Balls

3. Melt your candy melts in the microwave according to the package directions. My package called for melting it 30 seconds at a time. This is the step you really want to be careful with.  If you over-heat, then add some shortening to it. Turn your microwave setting down as low as possible and stir often in between heating. Let the heat of the candy melts continue to melt on their own before putting in the microwave again so you prevent overheating them. Then dip a bit of the candy stick into the candy melt and insert into the cake balls. Let them chill in the refrigerator for an hour.

4. Once chilled. Pull out of the refrigerator and dip into your candy melts. You may want to melt just a small portion for dipping the sticks first so you don’t have to reheat the candy melts. Once dipped and almost dry, add the eyes so they stick. Then take your remaining candy melt and put in a Ziploc sandwich bag (cut a small hole in the corner) or an icing bag. Then pipe on the layers on the face to make it look like a mummy.

  2. Your mummy cake pops turned out cute. I usually make mummy cake pops every year but, this year I don’t feel like it. My little boy wants me to make them for his class. I ‘m thinking about sending candy instead…lol! Just so much easier. Thank you for sharing with us at the Click and Chat Link Up Party! And, thank you for co-hosting . Kim @ This Ole Mom

    • Thanks Kim! Cake pops surprisingly are a lot of work so I totally understand where you’re coming from! I probably would opt for the candy too! 😉
