Star Cake Pops Recipe
These adorable Star Cake Pops are the perfect treat for your Fourth of July celebration.
- ¾ cup butter
- 1 cup water
- Red and blue food coloring
- 12-14 lollipop sticks
- 1 lb. 4 oz. pkg. white almond bark
- Red, white and blue sprinkles
- Star cookie cutter (approximately 3 inches wide)
Preheat oven to 325°. Combine first three ingredients in a large bowl; blend well. Do not over mix; batter will be lumpy. Reserve 2/3 cup batter. Pour remaining into a greased 13 x 9 pan. To 1/3 cup of the reserved batter, add red food coloring; mix well. To the other 1/3 cup reserved batter, add blue food coloring; mix well. Dollop spoonfuls of the red and blue batter evenly over the white batter. Use a knife to gently swirl colors together. Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool. Invert cake onto a flat surface. Using cookie cutter, cut out stars. Insert a lollipop stick into each star; place on a tray lined with wax paper. Continue with remaining cake. Place tray in freezer for at least 1 hour. Just before removing cake from freezer, melt almond bark as directed on package. Pour melted bark into a small, deep bowl. Dip each star into the warm almond bark, using a spoon to cover completely. Set stars on wax-paper lined baking sheet to cool. Top with sprinkles while the almond bark is still soft. Makes 12-14 cake pops.
