Ingredients

  • Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix™
  • 3/4 Cup (1 1/2 sticks) melted butter
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 16 Ounce container cream cheese frosting
  • Sprinkles or sanding sugar for decorating
  • 1 Pound 4 oz. package white almond bark
  • 60 Lollipop sticks

Preparation

Step 1:

Preheat oven to 350°. Combine first 3 ingredients; stir to blend. Pour batter into a greased 9x13 baking pan. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and top is nicely browned. Cool completely.

Step 2:

Break pound cake into crumbs with a fork until you have small, uniform crumbs (the smaller the better for smooth lollipops). With a sturdy spoon, stir in 3/4 of the cream cheese frosting; stir until a stiff dough forms.

Step 3:

Roll dough into 1-inch balls; insert a lollipop stick into each ball. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Cover; chill 1 hour.

Step 4:

Melt almond bark as directed on package; pour into a small deep bowl. Dip each lollipop into the warm almond bark. Set on wax paper-lined baking sheet. Continue with the remaining lollipops. Decorate each with sprinkles, sanding sugar or a drizzle of melted brown almond bark. Makes about 5 dozen (60) lollipops.
