How to Make Mint Chocolate Chip Cake Pops | Sprinkles For Breakfast

Happy Belated Mother’s Day. I hope all the moms out there had a great day, because they deserve to be celebrated. Being a mom is hard. I know I get anxious thinking about whether or not I am a good enough mom to my dog – so I can only imagine how much pressure it is being a mom to an actual human being. It’s definitely not easy. I was lucky enough to spend the day with my own mom. Even though she had just had her fourth round of chemo a few days before, she was a champion – like she always is. She was a little tired, but managed to hang out with us all day, watch the Clippers slaughter the Rockets in game 4, have dinner with us, and open presents. I also made her wear a “Mom in a Million” crown for a solid two hours. She was a trooper. And I love her for that.

Anyway, back to today’s recipe – Mint Chocolate Chip Cake Pops. I have always loved Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, so I thought it would be kind of cool to make it into a cake pop. I tried to make the pops with a green inside (to mimic the traditional mint chocolate chip look), but it ended up looking pretty gross. So I went with a more chocolate approach, and they turned out much better. The inside is a minty chocolate cake with lots of mini chocolate chips mixed in, and the outside is a dark chocolate coating with some green white chocolate for a minty fresh look.

  • 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

BUTTERCREAM

  • 1/2 stick butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 lb. Dark Coating Chocolate
  • 1/4 lb. White Chocolate Coating (Light Green)
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon mint extract

MATERIALS NEEDED

  • 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. 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 buttercream:

  • In a mixer fitted with a wire attachment, beat butter on high speed until light and creamy.
  • Put mixer on low speed and slowly add powdered sugar. Mix until combined.
  • Add vanilla and milk and put the mixer back on high speed. Beat until light and fluffy.

Assembly

  • In a large bowl, mix crumbs with 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon buttercream, 1/4 teaspoon of mint extract and 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips.
  • Mix with hands or a fork until buttercream 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 until you reach the desired round shape.
  • Put balls on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • Place dark chocolate melting chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. (Make sure it is deep enough to submerge the entire ball in the chocolate). Microwave the chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring after each heating, until it is melted.
  • Dip lollipop stick into chocolate and then into the middle of a cake ball.
  • Dip cake ball 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.
  • When the excess chocolate has dripped off, push the lollipop stick into styrofoam block to dry.
  • Once chocolate is dry, melt green chocolate in microwave safe bowl.
  • Place melted chocolate in pipping bag, with a small round tip.
  • Over the bowl of green chocolate, 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.

And if you are not sure how to do that, I highly recommend using The Pricing Calculator. It makes pricing easy.

It tells you exactly what you need to charge for all your goods and services.

No more uncertainty.

Things change. So should your prices! You should be reevaluating your prices 1-2 times a year just to make sure you are still on the right track. And if you have not raised your prices in a while...it’s time.

🤷‍♀️ But how much should you raise them?

Here are some options:
1. Pick a random number and just got with it.
2. Do a tiny bump up and hope that inflation is not killing your business.
3. Use my Pricing Calculator - it will tell you exactly how much you should be charing for all your goods and services (while making sure you are still making money).

If the Pricing Calculator sounds like something that would be helpful for you and your business, join the waitlist in my bio.

That way I can notify you as soon as it is released next week (and you can get access to a sweet discount)!

I can’t wait for you guys to use this magic calculator!

Pie Season is here! If you are looking to upgrade your pie game, the crust is a great way to start! You can find the recipe in my blog here: sprinklesforbreakfast.com/decorative-pie-crust-tutorial

Also, these photos are from one of my earliest blog posts (before my mom lost her battle to cancer). The photos definitely could use an upgrade, as I was just learning how to take food photos. But my mom is the hand model - and I just can’t bring myself to redo them.

It’s so crazy how a photo of some fingers pinching a pie crust can make me so happy and ugly cry at the same time.

Grief is such a strange thing. It comes in so many different shapes and sizes and colors. It shows up for big life events, and it shows up on a random Tuesday when you are diving home from the market and you go to call them and realize they are not there.

Or when you are sitting on your couch posting about pie on Instagram...although that one feels pretty specific.

I know there is no right or wrong way to deal with grief. And everyone has to find their own way to heal.

But I just wanted to say this:

To anyone who has ever experienced loss in any way - I am so so sorry. And while I know words can’t fix it, I just wanted you to know you are not alone❤️
