Candy Melt Instructions:

  1. Place the candy melts in a bowl or mug.
  2. Microwave for 30 seconds.
  3. Stir the candy melts.
  4. Repeat steps two and three until completely melted.

Note: There should be instructions on the bag of candy melts as well.


  • If you use a super moist cake mix, add less water. For example, I used a super moist chocolate cake mix, which called for 1 ¼ cups of water, but I only used 1 cup. This helps keep the cake pop from crumbling.
  • After you flour the pan, shake off excess into the garbage.
  • Use a knife to loosen the sides of the cupcakes when you take them out.
  • When you insert a cake pop stick, push the melted candy from the side into the hole you previously made.
  • Add vegetable shortening to the candy melts and microwave them again. The candy melts should have a very thin consistency.
  • Use a knife to trim off the excess candy melt around the covered cake pops once they dry.
