How to Make Crispy Treat "Cake" Pops (Free Recipe)
Elizabeth Barbone

December 4, 2013

About a year ago, I shared this how-to with the fabulous From Scratch Club blog. For the holiday season, I wanted to share it here with you. This recipe is a nice alternative to cake pops (which I don't like). And if you'd like a video, I made this recipe on WNYT. Here it is! 



Crispy Treat Pops 1

Make a batch of gluten-free crispy treats.

Cut the chilled treats into one-inch wide strips. I use a bench scraper to for this step. If you don't have one, use a pizza wheel or knife.

Crispy Pop Turn

Turn pan and repeat.

Round each square into a ball. If your crispy treats are really cold, wait until they warm slightly to do this. It's hard to round cold crispy treats! Alternatively, if the treats become too warm and begin to stick to your hands, pop them back in the refrigerator to chill and firm up for a few minutes.

The crispy treat mixture should not stick to your hands.

So pretty!

Melt chocolate or candy coating.

You want about an inch of chocolate on the stick.

Crispy Treat Pops 8

Dip each stick in about an inch of chocolate. This steps allows the crispy treat to adhere to the stick.

Insert stick about halfway into crispy ball.

Gently squeeze the crispy treat ball around the stick. One quick pinch is usually enough to make sure the stick is snuggly nested inside the crispy treat.

Place the treats on a baking sheet and allow the stick to overhang the edge of the pan.
Chill the pops for about ten minutes.

Rewarm the chocolate.

After pulling the treat out of the chocolate, allow the excess chocolate to drain away.

Tap the stick gently against the side of the measuring cup or bowl.

If you want, coat with sprinkles.

Place each stick into a piece of craft foam to set. If you don't have craft foam, place pops onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Enjoy!
