Chocolate, cake, strawberries, and champagne. All the best treats of Valentine's Day!
  • 1 box cake mix, strawberry or white
  • 12 oz. champagne
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ⅛ cup champagne
  • 1 package CANDIQUIK, Vanilla or Chocolate
  • Optional: lollipop sticks, styrofoam block (to hold pops upright), sprinkles, and silicone heart molds.
  1. Combine cake mix and 12 oz. champagne (no eggs, oils, or water) and mix well. Bake according to directions.
  2. Cream butter with mixer and gradually add powdered sugar until mixed well. Stir in ⅛ cup champagne.
  3. Crumble cooled cake into a large bowl. Add frosting and mix thoroughly with hands.
To make Cake Pops/Balls
  1. Roll cake and frosting mixture into 1" sized balls. Chill for approximately 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  2. Melt CANDIQUIK in tray according to package directions.
  3. If making pops, insert a lollipop stick into each cake ball. You can dip the lollipop stick in a small amount of coating before inserting into the cake ball if you have issues with it falling off the stick.
  4. Dip cake pops or balls in melted CANDIQUIK; allow excess coating to drip off and place on wax paper or in the Styrofoam block. Decorate with sprinkles if desired and allow to set.
To make Cake Heart Bites
  1. Melt CANDIQUIK in tray according to package directions.
  2. Spoon a small amount of CANDIQUIK into each mold cavity, rotating to coat the bottom and sides and allow to set.
  3. Press cake mixture into chocolate-coated molds until about ¾ full. Top with additional CANDIQUIK.
  4. Once completely set, pop cake-filled chocolates out of heart mold. Repeat until all cake and CANDIQUIK is gone.
