 Air Fryer Cake Pops

My kids love the Cake Pops at Starbucks, but truthfully they are not budget-friendly, although they are delicious. So, today, after whipping up an air fryer cake, I decided to make a batch of Homemade Air Fryer Cake Pops.

While I used a simple Dunkin Hines Red Velvet Box Mix, you can use any cake mix that you want for this recipe. The coating is excellent and accessible, Baker’s White Chocolate Coating, and then I added many sprinkles, which my kids love!

Everyone loves an individual dessert, and of course, everyone loves cake, so when you put them together, they are an excellent treat for the entire family! If you have never made cake pops before, they are really simple to prepare.

What Are Cake Pops?

What are Cake Pops? Well, they’re an excellent dessert/snack hybrid. A cake pop is made with cake batter and frosting. They are dipped in chocolate or white chocolate and either decorated with sprinkles, nuts, or other toppings or left unadorned for a simple but very delicious treat. These little snacks can be enjoyed on their own or as part of a dessert party platter.

Let’s get started! I’ve got all the recipes you need to make these yummy desserts yourself at home.

  • Make sure to add enough frosting. You really want the cake pops to stick together without being wet. So, add tablespoons by tablespoon until you have a perfect consistency.
  • Make sure they are frozen solid after placing them into the freezer so they don’t fall apart.
  • If you have trouble melting the white chocolate, use the microwave and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between every 30 seconds, until the desired consistency is achieved.
