  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Devil's Food Cake Mix (or any other chocolate flavor)
  • 1-1/2 cups canned pumpkin pie mix (not pumpkin puree)
  • 2 tablespoons from 1 tub (16 oz) Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy Chocolate Frosting
  • 2 cups dark chocolate candy melts
  • 2 tablespoons sprinkles


  • 1
    Begin by gathering your ingredients.
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, mix together chocolate cake mix and pumpkin pie mix. Stir until smooth, spread into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  • 3
    Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the center of the cake springs back when touched lightly.
  • 4
    Remove cake and cool completely. Once cooled, slice the edges of the cake off and discard. Crumble the center of the cake into a large bowl. Mix with chocolate frosting until a dough that resembles the texture of Play-Doh™ forms.
  • 5
    Roll cake dough into 12 balls. If desired, press a paper straw into the center of each ball to make pops.
  • 6
    Melt the candy melts in a large glass bowl. Microwave in 30-second bursts and stir between, cooking just until the candy melts become smooth and melty.
  • 7
    Dip cake balls into the candy melt. Use a spoon to ensure every side of the cake pop is covered.
  • 8
    Place chocolate-covered cake balls on a piece of parchment. Sprinkle, if desired. Allow to set completely before serving.
