These little treats are not only eye-catching but also irresistibly tasty, perfect for adding a festive touch to your party. Here’s how to make your own batch of green-themed treats that will make your guests feel lucky.


  • Green velvet cake (baked and cooled) — use your favorite recipe or a box mix
  • 1 cup cream cheese frosting (store-bought for shelf stability)
  • 1 lb white chocolate or candy melts
  • A few drops of green food coloring (for the cake batter)
  • Sprinkles for decoration (optional)


  1. Prepare the Cake Base:
    • Crumble the cooled green velvet cake into fine crumbs. You can use a food processor or do it by hand to achieve the desired texture.
  2. Mix and Mold:
    • Stir in the cream cheese frosting into the cake crumbs until the mixture is well combined and moist enough to hold together.
    • Roll the mixture into small, even balls. If the mixture is too soft, chill it in the refrigerator for a few minutes to firm up.
  3. Prepare for Dipping:
    • Melt the white chocolate or candy melts in a microwave or over a double boiler until smooth.
    • Dip the tip of a cake pop stick into the melted chocolate, then insert it about halfway into a cake ball. This helps the cake pop stay secure on the stick.
    • Allow the chocolate on the stick to set, which helps secure the stick to the cake ball.
  4. Dip and Decorate:
    • Once the sticks are secured, dip each cake pop into the melted chocolate, ensuring they are completely coated.
    • If using sprinkles, add them before the chocolate sets for a festive look.
  5. Set and Serve:
    • Place the cake pops in a styrofoam block or a custom stand to let them set completely, usually about 1 hour.
    • Keep them at room temperature until ready to serve.

Total Time:

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Setting Time: 1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes


  • Makes approximately 20 cake pops


  • Stability: Use a styrofoam block or a custom cake pop stand to hold the cake pops upright while they set.
  • Alternative Idea: If you prefer not to use sticks, simply leave them as cake balls and dip them using a fork or a dipping tool.

These vibrant Green Velvet Cake Pops are sure to be a hit at your St. Patrick’s Day event, bringing a touch of whimsy and a pop of festive color to your celebration!
