How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Pops

I can’t believe it’s already September. Like, what? How did that happen? I feel like this year has just flown by – and at the rate things are going, I really need to start thinking about my dog’s Halloween costume. Obviously that is not something that you can leave until the last minute.

Best Chocolate Cake Pops

But before we start talking Halloween, let’s talk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Pops. In my opinion, most Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Pops are just not peanut buttery enough. The chocolate/peanut butter ratio always seems to be a little off.

Homemade Cake on a Stick

But, I came up with a way to fix that. Instead of just using peanut butter to bind the cake crumbs together, I decided to take it a step further and just dunk the whole pop in both peanut butter and chocolate (as seen above).

Not only does this improve the chocolate to PB ratio – but it greatly enhances your Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake Pop eating experience. You can trust me…I tested it many, many times.

Ingredients
  

CHOCOLATE CAKE

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup strong black coffee
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

COATING

  • 1 lb. dark melting chocolate
  • 1 1/4 cups peanut butter (I recommend using Skippy)
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Styrofoam Cake Block
  • Pipping Bag
  • Small round pipping tip

Instructions
 

FOR THE CAKE

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9 x 13" pan and line with parchment.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix on low until dry ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • Add eggs, buttermilk, coffee, oil and vanilla.
  • Beat on medium speed for about two minutes; the batter will be thin. Pour batter evenly into prepared pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes for round pans, or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Let cake cool completely on a wire cooling rack.

FOR THE COATING

  • Once the cake is cooled, use your hands or two forks and to crumble the cake into fine crumbs.
  • In a large bowl, combine crumbs with 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon peanut butter and 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips.
  • Mix with hands or a fork until peanut butter is fully incorporated. You want the mixture to be just moist enough to roll into balls.
  • Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop out a small amount of cake mixture and roll between cupped hands to form a round ball.
  • Put balls on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • Place remaining amount of peanut butter (about 1 cup) in a microwave safe bowl. (Make sure it is deep enough to submerge the entire ball in the chocolate). Microwave the peanut butter in 15 second increments, stirring after each heating, until it is melted.
  • Dip lollipop stick into peanut butter and then into the middle of a cake ball.
  • Dip cake ball into the peanut butter until it is completely covered. Hold it sideways over the bowl and rotate it and tap it so any excess comes off.
  • Push lollipop stick into styrofoam block. Once all pops are completed, set the peanut butter aside (you will need it for decorating), and place block into the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or until the peanut butter has completely hardened.
  • Melt dark chocolate melting chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring after each heating, until it is melted.
  • Dip the peanut butter covered pop into the chocolate until it is completely covered. Hold it sideways over the bowl and rotate it and tap it so the excess chocolate comes off.
  • Put lollipop stick back into the styrofoam block to dry.
  • Once chocolate is dry, put the leftover peanut butter back in the microwave for 15 - 30 seconds.
  • Place melted peanut butter in pipping bag, with a small round tip.
  • Drizzle lines covering all sides of the ball. Place back in the styrofoam block to dry.

It doesn’t matter if you are a baker, chef, content creator, or any other kind of artist.

If you are undercharging for your work, you are only hurting yourself.

Your time & money = wasted. And that sucks.

Becuase you are TALENTED. You should not just be....

-Bringing in a few bucks here and there.
-Breaking even.
-Or worse, losing money.

You deserve to be paid good $$ for your work!

But in order to actually grow your business, you have to have accurate prices.

And that’s exactly what The Ultimate Pricing Calculator helps you do. It is 100% customizable and tells you exactly what you should be charging for all your goods and services.

Time is one of our most valuable resources - especially if you run a business. Yet, so many people don’t charge for it when it comes to setting their prices.

I get it. Trying to figure out how much your time is worth is complicated.

There are a variety of factors that go into it - location, skill, demand, and more.

But we need to learn how to charge for it.

That’s why I dedicated an entire section to labor in The Ultimate Pricing Calculator. I make sure you add in your time so it is factored into the final price.

Then the calculator does all the magic math for you!

And becuase I know setting your hourly rate can be a little intimidating, I made a bonus video that helps you figure out exactly what it should be.

So tell me...how are you charging for your time right now? Do you think you should be charging more?

Requiring a deposit is a simple way to protect yourself from all the 👻 out there.

They have already agreed to pay you. So in order to start the work, you should ask for some of the money up front.

How much?

It depends on if your prices are set up correctly.

When you have accurate prices, anything from 25-50% should work just fine.

But if your prices are too low (which is the case for MOST new bakers and content creators I work with), you are still not getting enough to make this worth your time (in case they still do 👻).

If you want to see if you are undercharging, my Pricing Calculator can help you check. It’s 100% customizable and will tell you exactly what you need to be charging for each item you sell.
