Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup strawberries cleaned and chopped
  • 1/2 cup champagne
  • 1 box vanilla cake mix (15.2 oz/432 g)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup strawberries cleaned and diced
  • 24 oz (675 g) white chocolate To coat
  • A few drops of pink food coloring optional

Instructions

  • Pulse the 1/2 cup chopped strawberries with the champagne a couple times in the blender, until just combined. If needed, top it up with some more champagne to equal 1 cup liquid. The idea is to replace the liquids that your cake mix requires (usually 1 cup water or milk) for the champagne and strawberry mixture.
  • Prepare the cake batter by combining the cake mix, oil, eggs, strawberry champagne mixture and diced strawberries. Plug in the cake pop maker to preheat it. There should be an indicator light to tell you when it's ready - mine takes only a few minutes.
  • Fill the cake pop maker cavities with the batter (fill them just below the top). Do this step quickly because the batter will start baking and puffing up. Close the lid and bake them in the cake pop maker for 3-4 minutes, or until golden and a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
  • Prepare a double boiler by placing a metal bowl over a pot with simmering water. Melt the white chocolate in the metal bowl. Mix in a few drops of the pink or red food coloring (optional). Coat the cake balls with the melted white chocolate and let them set at room temperature until hardened.
  • Serve with champagne if desired.

Notes

If the melted chocolate is too thick to coat the cake balls properly: you can thin it out by mixing in some canola oil or coconut oil, 1 teaspoon at a time, until it reaches the right consistency.

Making cake pops can sometimes be quite challenging. However, once you are introduced to the cake pop maker, you will see what a breeze it can be compared to making them by hand; and that uniform shape of each cake ball is a bonus.

When it comes to dipping the pops into melted chocolate or other coatings, be quick. Roll them around until they are completely covered. Once the pop is dipped, place the cake balls on a platter or plate lined with wax paper. Allow the candy or chocolate to set. Serve and enjoy!
