  • 1
    1 recipe White Cake (your favorite recipe)
    For the Base: Make the cake, allow to cool, and then crumble. The cake should be crumbs. Split into two batches of 5 cups of crumbs.
  • 2
    4 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar
    1 /12 cups Butter (room temperature)
    1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
    2 tablespoons Milk
    Next make the buttercream frosting. Whip butter and powdered sugar in an electric mixer on low. Once incorporated, add vanilla and increase speed to high, mixing until fluffy. Add one tablespoon of milk at a time until you've reached your desired consistency. Should yield about 3 cups of buttercream. Split the buttercream into two batches. 
  • 3
    1/4 cup Peanut Butter
    2 heaping teaspoons Grape Jelly
    For the Peanut Butter Cake Pops: Fold the peanut butter into one of the batches of buttercream and set aside.
  • 4
    2 cups Dark Chocolate (melted)
    1 cup Peanuts (chopped)
    Scoop out 2 tablespoons of the frosting and jelly and mix into cake crumbs in a stand mixer. Roll the mixture into golf ball sized balls. Insert a popsicle stick into the ball, and place on a parchment lined sheet pan. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used up, and then place into freezer to set for 30 minutes.
  • 5
    1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut
    1/2 teaspoon Coconut Extract
    1 tablespoon Coconut Milk
    Once they have chilled, dip the pops into the hot chocolate, and then roll the chocolate dipped pop through peanuts. Return to the parchment lined sheet pan and return to freezer until all pops are set.
  • 6
    Remaining chocolate (melted)
    Desiccated Coconut
    For the Coconut Cake Pops: In a stand mixer, beat the frosting, desiccated coconut, coconut extract, and coconut milk into the cake crumbs until it forms a uniform consistency, and form into golf ball sized balls. Insert a popsicle stick into each of them, and then arrange onto a parchment lined sheet pan. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used up, and then place into freezer to set for 30 minutes.
