Cake pops take cake and makes it even better. By adding a themed twist to its shape, these Easter egg cake pops are perfect for the holiday. 

A great thing about these is how customizable they are. You can pick any kind of cake and frosting, as well as the color of the candy melts and decorations. This is a fun activity to do with friends too.

It doesn't matter what kind of cake pan you have since you're going to crumble it up anyways. I used both jumbo and mini cupcake tins because I did not have a regular cake pan.

Another tip is to make sure the pops are cold when they are dunked into the chocolate, otherwise they will fall off the sticks and get stuck in the candy melts.

    Holding onto the lollipop stick, dip the cake pops into a glass or bowl deep enough that the entire pop can be submerged. Tap off the excess candy melt. Decorate with sprinkles and place to cool either back on the pan or in a stand for cake pops.
