Ice Cream Cakesicles

I am OBSESSED with cake pops especially Starbucks cake pops and now I have my kids hooked on them too.

I love the ooey, gooey cake middle with the crunch of the chocolate shell on the outside.

That is why I love these Ice Cream Cakesicles so much.

They are tasty and totally adorable. Oh, and did I mention they are easier to make than you’d think?

These Cakesicles would be perfect for birthday parties and other celebrations.

How to Make Ice Cream Cakesicles

This is more of a How to Make Ice Cream Cakesicles rather than a traditional recipe post.

If you’ve never made cake pops before, my favorite way to make them is take your favorite cake mix and bake it as usual.

Once the cake has cooled, crumble it up in a large bowl and mix in your favorite frosting so that you can mold the cake together.

Refrigerate it until it’s chilled and it will be easier to work with. Once you have that made, you are ready to make your own Ice Cream Cakesicles.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Melt the almond bark or melting wafers in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until it’s fully melted.

If using candy melts add 1 tsp of vegetable oil if the chocolate is not smooth (for use with candy melts, almond bark melts without it)

If this is the first time using your molds, press a stick through the holes and remove them before continuing.

Spoon a spoonful of melted chocolate into the first mold cavity. Coat it fully taking special care to coat all the way to the rim.

Note: we are not filling the cavity with chocolate. We simply want to create a chocolate shell. We will fill it with cake pop dough.

Use the back of the spoon to spread the chocolate up the sides of the mold. Slide stick into the mold. They should NOT lean into the chocolate.

Wipe off any excess on the mold. Freeze for 15 mins. Remove from freezer.

Press cake pop dough into the cavities careful not to break the chocolate and slide the sticks if you need too to fill the cavity with cake pop dough.

Make sure the sticks inserted through the dough are all the same length.

Cover the top with melted chocolate and return to freezer freezing for another 10 mins.

To remove from the mold:

Very carefully loosen one of the end pieces.

Start peeling the mold from the top, very carefully peel the entire pop free.

Carefully push the sticks up through the mold.

Rest on parchment lined baking sheet.

Decorating the top:

Melt colored candy melts in bowls or directly inside of a piping bag. Melt on 30 second increments.

Cut a small opening at the bottom and create designs, immediately add sprinkles.

Let dry 15 minutes if placing on platters (at least 30-45 min) before bagging.

While it may seem like there are a ton of steps to these, you are really just melting chocolate, coating the silicone popsicle mold with a thin layer, allowing it to dry then stuffing with cake pop dough. You then cover that with chocolate, allow it to set and then remove from the molds to decorate.

Easy peasy.

Enjoy!

Things to Note:

  • If the stick won’t stay inside the dough, remove it from the mold, dip in melted chocolate and insert into pop. Let set for 10-15 mins.
  • If the chocolate cracks when removing, peel the chocolate off, if no cake is in the chocolate remelt it and start over.
  • If the sides are not fully covered, dab a bit of the melted chocolate into the exposed areas and let dry.
  • If extra chocolate is on the outer rim use a pair of clean scissors to carefully trim it off.
