Frozen Cake Pops to Celebrate Frozen 2
Frozen II hits theaters next week and I can’t believe it’s finally happening! The girls and I have been counting down the days (ok…years!!) for the Frozen sequel!
Are your kids excited too??
To celebrate, we’ve made these gorgeous blue cake pops in honor of Frozen 2.
If you’ve never made a cake pop from scratch before, you’re in luck! This easy frozen cake pop recipe is the perfect winter treat for any Elsa or Anna fan! Your kids will love creating these fun cake pops, and they’re a great snack to enjoy while watching Frozen.
We photographed them without sticks, because honestly, we just wanted to dig right in and adding sticks seemed like an extra step!
We just couldn’t wait to finish making (and then eat) our Frozen cake pops!! They turned out so cute! Hope you and your little Frozen fans love them as much as we do!

Frozen Cake Pops Ingredients
- 1 box funfetti cake mix + ingredients to make the batter
- 1 container of blue frosting OR vanilla frosting + blue food coloring
- 1 bag of Ghirardelli white chocolate melting wafers
- blue and white jimmies (optional)
How to Make Frozen Cake Balls
Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
TIP: Since you’ll be removing the cake from the liners before serving, we recommend reusable silicone cupcake liners. We love ours!
Prepare cake batter according to box directions and scoop batter into your muffin pan.
Bake at 350°F for 21 minutes, or what the box recommends.
Remove from oven and allow to cool, then pop the cupcakes out of the liners and into a mixing bowl.
Add 1/2 Tablespoon of frosting to the crumbled cake and mix together. Add more frosting as needed until you have a thick dough-like consistency.
Form dough into balls of about 1 Tablespoon each.
IF MAKING CAKE POPS: This is where you add the lollipop sticks!
Place balls onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper and freeze for 30 minutes.
While cake balls chill, prepare your white chocolate coating by melting the white chocolate in a double boiler.
Dip cake pops into the melted chocolate until fully coated, then place back on the cookie sheet. Repeat until all are coated.
While chocolate is still damp, sprinkle blue and white jimmies on top of the cake balls.
Allow chocolate coating to set completely and enjoy!
Why Do Cake Pops Fall Off the Stick?
Our recipe uses frosting to thicken the batter and allow you to roll it into balls. You really just need enough frosting for things to “gel” together.
Using too much frosting can make the batter kind of slippery and the pops may fall off your candy sticks.
The good news is that they’ll still taste fantastic either way! And as you can see, sometimes we make them without the sticks anyways — like bite size cake truffles, if you will!
Why Are My Cake Pops Cracking?
Sometimes when making cake balls, the chocolate coating cracks as it hardens. This is caused when the temperature difference between the chilled cake batter balls and melted chocolate is too great.
One way to prevent this is to allow the chocolate to cool just a bit before dipping the balls of batter into it. You’ll have to work quickly before the chocolate cools too much though!
How to Store Cake Pops
Once set, you can keep your cake balls or pops at room temperature for up to a week. Store in an airtight container with a paper towel or parchment paper lining the bottom.
You can make them last a bit longer by placing the container in the fridge.
Can You Freeze Them?
Sure! I’d recommend wrapping individual cake pops in plastic wrap, then placing them inside a sealed freezer bag. They should last at least a couple months this way.
To defrost, remove individual cake pops from the freezer bag and allow them to come to room temperature on their own.
