Servings 84 pops


  • 1 box cake mix yellow
  • 1 tub frosting (as desired)
  • 1 chocolate
  • 1 icing black, orange, green, red (for decorating)
  • 1 box Nerds green



  • Bake yellow cake following instructions on box.
  • Once cool, crumb yellow cake into mixing bowl.
  • Mix together frosting and cake crumbs until uniform.
  • Roll into balls of roughly equal size and place on wax paper. (They don't need to be perfect here.)
  • Place cake balls in freezer for about 40 minutes to set.


  • Melt chocolate over double boiler or carefully in microwave.
  • Take lollipop sticks and dip them into chocolate. Then, stick them ¾ of the way into cake balls.
  • Once finished, place cake pops in the freezer for another five minutes to solidify chocolate.
  • Dip cake pops on stick back into melted chocolate. Place them on wax paper upside down to set. (This will create a flat top on each cauldron.) Let pops set.


  • Paint flames onto bottom of cauldron with red and orange frosting all the way around stick.
  • Use black icing to add handles to each cake pop.
  • Use green frosting to "glue" green Nerds on top of each cauldron.
