Once they’ve baked and completely cooled, you can enjoy them just the way they are! However, now that you’ve got the basics covered, you may want to try taking things to the next level.

Try dipping your cake pops in melted chocolate or softened chocolate frosting for even more chocolaty bliss. Mix and match different frosting flavors for more options and add some color with sprinkles and designs made with other colors of frosting!

To store your cake pops, they can be left at room temperature in a sealed container or a plastic bag for up to a week. To keep them longer however, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks. Freeze in plastic freezer bags to keep up to three months.
