Key Lime Pops with Milk Chocolate Coating

I know that cake balls are "so  yesterday" but I recently made a different cake pop for a friend who was getting married in Apalachicola, which is where my husband proposed to me. I wanted to make a more summer version of this favorite treat and with it being summer, how perfect is key lime!

Speaking of perfect, I adore cake mixes. There is no shame in letting Betty do all the work for you:
Cake Recipe:


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
  • 1 1/3 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (3 ounce) package lime Jello mix
  • 3/4 cup key lime juice 
  • 2-4 drops of green food coloring
  • 1 container of store bought cream cheese icing


1. Combine cake mix, Jello, oil, eggs and key lime juice. Drop in your green food coloring until you reach the green you like. Pour into a cake pan and bake according to instructions on box. Allow to cool. 

2. After cake has completely cooled, crumble into a large mixing bowl and add in 1 container of cream cheese icing.

3. Put the cake/icing mixture in the fridge for about an hour and then you are ready to roll into balls and place on a wax paper lined cooking sheet.

4. Once the cake pops have cooled, they are ready to be dipped in the chocolate of your choice. I used milk chocolate.

Now eat them. All of them.
