Most importantly it is loved by everyone and it is very much in fashion nowadays.

● one basic sponge cake
● 4 to 5 tablespoons of Nutella
● 200 grams of dark chocolate grated
and for the coating you’ll be needing
● some colored sprinkles
● some chocolate sprinkles
● some edible hearts
You can also use any of the sprinkles of your choice, some lollipop sticks.
Here I have got a basic chocolate sponge cake you can use any basic vanilla sponge cake also. You can also use any other cake available of the choice. Now in a large bowl take the cake and break it and crash it with the help of your hands to make crumbs out of it.
I am doing it over here with the help of my hands because it’s very easy. But if you are making this in large quantity, you can also use a food processor to crush it evenly.
Now to this I am going to add the nutella. This is added basically to give moisture and flavor to the cake pops, so that it can be rolled easy. So if you want you can also use chocolate ganache or any other frosting or if you want you can also use chocolate sauce over here.
Now mix this into the cake crumbs and mix thoroughly with the help of your hands until it all comes together to form a dough like consistency.
Now you can see this basic dough for the cake pops is ready, now we roll them. Take a scooper or a spoon which will give a standard size measurement or if you want you can also roll them directly with the help of your hands. Taking a three tablespoon portion of mixture in your hands and roll it evenly between your pants to make small small roundels out of it. Keep doing is for all the mixture.
If you want you can take a small portion in your hand and you can also give it a heart shape with the help of your hand.
Making narrow at the lower bottom and with the help of a toothpick or a knife you can give a slit on top of it.
With the help of your hands you can slightly shape it to give it a heart shape.
Now you can see the cake pops are ready.
You have rolled into round and few of them into heart shape.
Now I am going to put these into the fridge to set enough for 20 to 30 minutes so that it forms up a bit to dip them into melted chocolate.
Now I am going to melt the grated chocolate in the microwave for 30 to 40 seconds until it is smooth and glossy.
Now I take a small portion of the lollipop stick or the wooden stick into the melted chocolate and then Pierce this into the cake wall inside up to the 3-foot portion of the ball.
It will stick onto it and keep it aside.
Now take the cake pop with the stick and dip it into the melted chocolate to put it on all the sides evenly.
If you want you can also use a spoon for this and tap it out all the excess chocolate coming out of it. Be very careful while tapping so that the stick doesn’t come out once all the excess drippings are out.
Now I am going to sprinkle the cake pops with some chocolate sprinkles onto it while it is still moist. You can also sprinkle a few of them with colored sprinkles.
I’m going to sprinkle few with the edible colored hearts.
You can be really creative over here and use any kind of decorative of your choice.
Once all of them are ready and nicely coated.
Now I am going to put them in the fridge to set enough.
So you can see now my beautiful and lovely looking cake box are ready and they look quite presentable.
If you want you can just wrap them nicely and just put them in a beautiful basket and you can keep them for gifting option also.
Here I’ve used the basic sponge cake for making the cake part but if you want you can also use any other leftover brownies or any other muffins you have available at your home.
If you want to make them more richer you can just stuff them some roasted almonds or with some choco chips.
If you want and you can also be creative by decorating it with any other sprinkles of your choice.
