Easily make this recipe into Grinch cake pops by adding a dab of melted chocolate to the end of a lollipop stick, placing the stick into the ball and then dipping into the melted chocolate chips.

TIPS FOR MAKING THESE SWEET TREATS:

  • Use Wilton candy melts for best results, the wafer chocolate melts the best. Add one teaspoon of coconut oil to other melted chocolate chips to help them melt and pour better.
  • Lay the chocolate covered treat on a parchment lined baking sheet for easy moving and transporting before the chocolate has hardened.
  • Place the chocolate balls in the fridge or freezer to completely cool before serving.
