Key Ingredients You’ll Need
- Brown Sugar: This is great for making adding more moisture to the cake. This will take your cake pops to the next level. .
- Milk: Use whole or 2% milk to add moisture to the recipe and add additional flavor.
- Cocoa: This will be used to add a chocolatey flavor to the cake. This also fits so well with the chocolate outer layer.
- Cream Cheese: Cream cheese is replacing the traditional frosting that most people use in cake pops. Believe me, this is way better. The cream cheese doesn’t add all the sweetness that frosting does so these cake pops are not overwhelmingly sweet.
- Candy Melts: These will be melted and used to dip the cake pops in. I like to use a few different colors of candy melts to make a few different colored cake pops. It not only makes the recipe more eye-popping, but it will also just look a lot cuter in my opinion.
