Easter Basket Cake Pops

Who's ready for Easter?
The Bunny came by our house early this year!

I really liked making these because they are fairly straight forward using the basic cupcake shape to create the shape of a basket.

Here's a quick explanation of how to create these cute little treats.

First, gather your supplies.
 

Shape your pops in two parts using your favorite cake pop recipe.
After the pops are formed, insert the lollipop stick into the flat base and
dip into the melted chocolate.
As the candy coating hardens, sprinkle the jimmies on top.
Place the jelly beans by using melted chocolate as the glue.

Finally, create the basket handle with a
Attach on the edges, using the melted chocolate as the glue.

All done!
Easter basket cake pops are ready to be enjoyed by everyone.
I hope you have as much fun making these as I did.
Who's ready for an egg hunt?!?

  1. Wow, these are fantastic! I've just started making cake pops and I must tell you, it's still not easy for me. The candy doesn't always look pretty, I haven't gotten the knack of it yet. I don't think I'm fast enough and my candy gets yukky. Oh well, I'll keep trying.

    1. I struggled at the beginning too. I found that using paramount crystals are a huge help when used with the candy melts. Keep at it!

    3. Paramount crystals are an ingredient you can use to help thin chocolate and candy melts.
      Here's a link to where I buy mine:

  6. I think you could use the mini cupcake maker to make these, couldn't you.Just don't make the top to big when baking. Would save alot of time. I have one and maybe I might be able to make some.

    1. You could definitely do that and save some time. I just don't have one, so I haven't tried it. Have fun!

  7. Love your stuff - so creative! I did baskets last year, but I used the mold on the bottom...so much easier! The first time I did the ones with the cookie cutter, I told everyone to enjoy them because I was never going to do them again. Then I saw the ones using the mold, and they were so much easier. I use a Dremel drill to drill the hole at the bottom. My pics are on FB Lollicake Bakeshop page.
