This Nutella cake pops recipe is a delicious twist on regular cake pops. These candies are made with moist chocolate cake and Nutella and topped with chopped hazelnuts.
If you prefer, you can skip the lollipop sticks and turn them into Nutella cake balls!
Gather the ingredients.
Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil or waxed paper.
Place the cake in a large bowl and crumble it with your hands.
Once the cake in fine crumbs, add about one cup of the Nutella and begin to mix it with your hands into the cake crumbs, working until the mixture is evenly moistened. You want the cake mixture to hold together easily when you roll it into small balls.
If the cake mixture is too dry, add more Nutella until you're happy with the taste and texture.
Using a cookie scoop, form the mixture into small balls and roll them between your hands to make them round. Place them on the prepared baking sheet and refrigerate until firm, at least two hours.
After the pops are chilled, remove them from the refrigerator.
Melt the chocolate candy coating in the microwave in short intervals, stirring after every 30 seconds to prevent overheating. Heat and stir until completely melted and smooth.
Dip the end of a lollipop stick into the melted coating and then push this end into the cake pop, pressing firmly to stick it into the cake.
After all of the cake balls have been skewered, refrigerate the tray again briefly to set the coating.
Re-warm the chocolate coating if necessary. Dip a cake pop into the coating to cover it completely.
Remove it from the bowl and let the excess coating drip back into the bowl.
Set it upright into a cake pop stand or a piece of Styrofoam and, while the coating is still wet, sprinkle the top with a generous pinch of chopped hazelnuts.
Repeat until all of the pops have been dipped and coated with nuts. After the candy coating hardens, your pops are ready to serve. You can enjoy them immediately or store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
