Valentine's Day Cake Pop Ideas

Updated on January 12, 2012


Valentine’s Day is a time for love and joy. Why not share your feelings with Valentine’s Day cake pops? These little desserts are the perfect one or two bite piece and the treats appeal to people of all ages. The hard chocolate shell gives way to a rich and smooth inside filled with cake and frosting. With the right decorations, you create a cake pop treat that is perfect for a school party, adult party, or just to pass out at work. These little treats are the perfect end to a Valentine’s Day event.

Conversation Heart Cake Pops


After making your basic cake pop recipe/filling, shape the cake pop mixture into heart shapes and insert a straw or wooden skewer in the bottom. Place chunks of white chocolate into a double boiler and melt over medium or low heat until smooth. Divide the white chocolate into microwave safe bowls. Add a dollop of gel food coloring to each bowl and mix with a toothpick. Make four separate colors: yellow, green, purple, and pink.

Dip your Valentine’s Day cake pops into the bowls, one at a time. Use only one color for each heart and place the dipped cake pops to the side. The chocolate should drip off the hearts. After you finish dipping the cake pops, fill a pastry bag with red or pink frosting. Write small words and phrases on each cake pop, such as Be Mine, Kiss Me, Hug Me, and I love You. This makes each cake pop look like the conversation heart candies popular around the holiday.

Chocolate Heart Cake Pops


Form your cake pops into hearts, just as you did with the conversation hearts. Instead of dipping the cake pops into white chocolate, dip the cake pops into dark, semi-sweet, or milk chocolate. While the chocolate is still wet and glossy, sprinkle cinnamon heart candies over the top. Another idea is to sprinkle edible red glitter or red sugar sprinkles over the top. After the chocolate dries, tie a red ribbon around each stick. Make the Valentine’s Day cake pops even cuter by using red velvet cake in the center.

Pink and White Cake Pops


Make your cake pops into ordinary balls. Melt white chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave, reserving a small amount. Add a few drops of red food coloring and stir until the chocolate develops a slightly rosy tone. Dip the Valentine’s Day cake pops into the white chocolate and let cool until the chocolate hardens. Melt the remaining white chocolate. Dip a fork into the chocolate and drizzle over the top of each cake pop. For a more striking color contrast, make the white chocolate a deep shade of red and drizzle with plain white chocolate. Top with pink sugar or your favorite crushed candies.

Basic Valentine's Day Cake Pops


For a plain and basic Valentine ’s Day cake pop, that doesn’t take a lot of time or effort, make plain cake balls and set on a wood skewer. Melt white chocolate and leave plain. Dip each cake pop into the white chocolate. Before the chocolate cools, place a small conversation heart on top and press into the chocolate. Use just one conversation heart for each cake pop, or use several. You can even roll the cake pops in crushed or whole conversation hearts for an extra touch of sweetness.
