Note: Adjust thickness by adding additional caramel pieces or additional milk.


  • I used a Caramel Apple Cupcake cake mix, but you can use any cake mix you like.
  • When you flour the cake pop pan, smear the flour with your fingers. This will help ensure that the flour coats the entire pan.
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop batter into the pan.
  • Gently wiggle the cake pop pan while prying the two sides apart. This will help prevent the cake pops from tearing in half.
  • Use a knife to help get each cake pop out.
  • When you insert a cake pop stick, push the melted candy from the side into the hole you previously made.
  • The caramel sauce should be a medium consistency. It shouldn’t be thin enough that it pools of the cake pop, but it needs to be thin enough that the caramel will not pull the cake pop off the stick.
  • Let the caramel sauce cool before you use it, otherwise it will melt the candy coating on the cake pops.
