Check out these cute little canine cake pops that are sure to make your kids beg for more.
Here’s what you’ll need to decorate:
Chocolate candy melts
White candy melts
Peanut butter candy melts
Candy writers (dark brown, white)
Edible ink pen
Life Savers candies
Cake Pops (process described here)
- They can be dipped in chocolate, white or peanut butter candy coating for variations.
- These were made with chocolate cake and cream cheese frosting.
Make the ears
- Draw an elongated tear drop shape on the back of a plastic spoon with a Sharpie.
- Turn the spoon over.
- Trace the shape with a candy writer or either use a squeeze bottle filled with melted candy coating.
- Fill the inside of the ear shape with candy coating.
- Place in the freezer for a few minutes to set.
- Remove and pop the ears off the spoon and store in a safe place until ready to use. These can even be made the night before.
Now for the noses
- Cut mini size m&m’s in half or
- Use a candy writer to draw your nose on wax paper and allow to dry until ready to use. These can also be made the night before.
- Use squeeze bottle or candy writer to “glue” the pieces on the pop.
- Place a drop of melted candy coating on the back of pre-made nose and place on pop.
- Draw the eyes and mouth using the edible ink pen.
- Use glue method to attach the ears and candies for the collars. Hold each for a few seconds until set.
- Allow the Puppy Pops to dry and serve. Be careful with them, though. Their ears will be fragile.
i love it YASSSSS
Hah!Really cool but i hate PeanutButter but I would love love love love the color on mine help?
you should make penis pops
I love this pop dogs idea, I will definetly try them for my girl Star Week at the prek, I know the kids will love them.
tks for sharing.
How do you attach the collar? I made pops once and had trouble keeping them from sliding down the stick. Any suggestions?
what the hell those are hidious i hate you
you are so talented my mom could never make anything that good
those are soooooooo cute i might have to try those out sometime. :)
C-U-T-E!!!!!! I am addicted to your cake pops and dogs, so this is a perfect combination!
These are AWESOME!! We made them for my daughter’s 11th birthday, & she absolutely loved them!!! Thank you!!
So cute. I think I’ll make these for my dogs birthday. Yes I said my dogs birthday. I won’t them to him of course but I always find any occasion to bake and I will decorate them to look like my dog!
I am making these for my little boys 2nd birthday party. I am wondering how far in advance can you make them??? I need them next Sat. but have time to work on them now…..hmmmm……….wondering………
I might try and make these for Dr Seuss Read Across America…
Go, Dog Go Book?
any other suggestions for 22 kids (1st Graders) for Dr Seuss?
OMG!!! Those are soooo cute! You HAVE to make cat ones too! ( :
Love them! I’ve been a cake decorator for 10 years now, and I never even thought of putting cake on a stick. Love it! I’ve got a tip though that would make these dogs easier to make. Tootsie rolls softened in the micro work great for puppy ears. I’ve done it on cupcakes before. You could probably get two ears out of one tootsie roll.
Thanks for all the wonderful ideas. You seem like you would be fun to hang out with too :) I agree that you should get a show on the Food Network :)
I made these puppy pops for my son’s puppy themed birthday party – they are So cute and were a big hit! I smashed tootsie rolls and shaped them in to ears – They looked cute, and I think they were a little more durable than the chocolate ones. (Only draw-back was that they could be only one color – worked fine for 3 year olds though!:))
thanks a bunch!
wow !! wat a cute thing ^^ it;s a art !! i love ur blog very much !
Amy – I’m so glad you were able to get things to work out. And I’m sure they are just as cute. Kudos for trying them.
To clarify–by “the ears weren’t hard,” I’m referring to difficulty, not to actual hardness. The freezer made them plenty hard so they easily popped off the spoon. I didn’t even need to use a sharpie to make an outline.
I did make the puppy pops, and I like to use Ghirardelli white chocolate for the coating because I am unable to get your brand of candy melts here. The food writers definitely did not work. I didn't think to order the brand that you had. After making many pathetic-looking dogs, I stopped using the pens altogether and made puppies with only eyes and noses made out of the mini m&m halves. No mouth. They were still plenty cute. I was surprised that the ears weren't near as hard as I'd expected.
Try holding the pop in your left hand and tapping your left wrist with your right hand. The gentle tapping will cause the excess to fall off and help create a smooth finish.
Also, twirl it as you go, so one side doesn’t get heavier than the other.
I love your blog.I Must confess I’m hooked. I would love to know how to get the bottoms round. To made the puppy pops I had to shave off the excess from the bottoms, but it still wasn’t rounded. Any advice? You are truly inspiring! Keep up the ideas….
pea & pear – I'm glad you stumbled in, too!
Queen B. – I don't. I only eat sweets. JJ.
I love your blog ! How on earth do you find time to cook dinner ?
If you need easy, gourmet recipes, I started a blog because I was tired of emailing the recipes to family and friends !!!!!
Try the BBQ Pork Sandwiches (crock pot!) You can bake all day…and have your dinner cooking at the same time !!
I’m going to make your cupcake pops this week ! I’ll post them soon !
oh!!!! I just think you are absolutely brilliant!!!!! I am having so much fun searching around your blog.. so glad to have stumbled in your direction :)
You are amazing! I am really new to the whole world of blogging. You have inspired me to bake again and to start a blog!! I made your cupcake pops for work and my babyshower themed pops are on my blog.
Keep the great ideas coming.
Yeah, I think you’ll like the americolor ones. At least the black ones anyway. Those are the ones I know work for sure.
Once again…so CUTE!!! I also wanted to say that I bought some different food markers from a nationwide craft store and returned them after they didn’t work on the chocolate…I have ordered the brand you recommended and look forward to making jack-o-lantern pops…what can I say, you got the idea rolling of what else to do with your pops!
gis – glad you like everything. Thanks for taking time to say so.
sweetie, this is so great, i love it :D :D i am not a cooker but i enjoy so muc looking at the creative sweets you come up with in your blog :D thanks for sharing your creativity :D
charlavail – that’s funny.
morgana – welcome back, I missed ya.
Stacy – you can stick them into a styrofoam block. And you can use any flavor cake and frosting combo you like.
These are so great. I am new to the blog (and love it) but wonder how you serve these or keep them upright?? And does it have to be cream cheese frosting or will other frosting work??
cute cute cute cute & cute… Lovely cake pops. I was on holydays last week and this has been a beautiful wellcome surprise for me. ;-) You're awesome.
Thank you! I also made a wall-e cake and it was kind of funny because they all reached for the eve-pops and ignored the cake haha. Yes, it took quite a bit of rearranging to make them fit.
Thanks for the inspiration!
Charlavail – Awesome job. I’m sure they were thrilled!!!
And I’m jealous of that fridge. I don’t have any extra space in mine.
Those are too cute. I was really inspired by your recipe for these “pops” so I made these for a four year olds birthday party:
Durrant – My pleasure.
Lauriebelle- glad you like ’em
til mitt drømmehjørne – thanks Henriette from Norway!
Lisa – they’ll definitely keep you preoccupied.
Edra “Jayne” – thanks!
jenny – star wars – how about yoda cakes or storm troopers. You could have a lot of fun with those.
Shari@Whisk: a food blog – you’re welcome.
aterwilliger – defintiely. It’s on my list.
Have you ever made brownie pops? Sounds like a rich and delicious twist! I love all your stuff! Keep it up.
Those are just too dog-gone cute! Thanks fro the step-by-step!
aaaahhhhhhh! i just had to scream because these were so cute!!!! i love dogs so i am loving these!
any ideas for cake pops, cakes or cupcakes with a star wars theme? my son’s bday is coming up in early november and i need ideas.
These are just adorable. I just made my first cupcake bites. Not as pretty as yours but fun to make to pass the hurricane away.
Looking at you on Marthas show. I hope you have started to sell your coockies as Martha told you to do, thay are amazing!
Best wishes to you from Henriette form Norway!
Awwwww…These are so darn cute!
Okay I have to say I have been somewhat obsessed with your blog since I first saw it! I have made the cupcake pops a few times and they have been a huge hit! You are so talented and creative. Thank you for sharing your creativity!
Sue Sparks – no problem. Godd luck with the pops.
Blogger Adrienne – they’d be impressive for sure.
lizzy-loo – you’re welcome
Amanda – thanks!
Amy – I’ll take a guess and say great!
My order of preference is
1 Red Velvet
How perfect! My daughter wants to have a doggie birthday party next month (she will be 4). These will be perfect! Any idea how Funfetti cake tastes with the cream cheese frosting?
OMG! You are really amazing, I am always in awe when I come here, adorable!!!!
oh my goodness! so cute, thanks for sharing
I just made some “dino eggs” cake pops, but am now second guessing that puppies might be killer for the 4 year olds birthday on Saturday! Love it.
P.S. I may have to make black puppy pops since I have a black lab:)
These are the cutest ever! SO creative! Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing! Also, I may have to go camera shopping:)
Anonymous – thanks for the vote of confidence.
Anonymous – okay, I’ll try!
Erin – you’ll love the pens. I’ve only used the black ones, but they work great.
Michelle Baker – Basically, I just tap the excess off. Tapping it also helps it smooth out.
Natalie – thanks
Anonymous – maybe if you cut them in half lengthwise.
Nancy – will do.
Bassie – A few days is fine.
Skeeto – Thanks!
thrilled by the thought – thanks!
Jaime – glad you like them
You are amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’d love to see your house!!!
Continued inspired ideas!!
How long in advance can you make cake pops?
Okay so the dogs are just too darn cute!! Love them! A friend and I attempted just the regular ones for the first time the other day! You can check them out here:
Thanks for the inspiration!
I wonder, would tootsie rolls be too heavy for the ears? I wonder if that would be easier no?
You are amazing!! I wish I could pull things off half as good as this!! The dogs are so cute and I must agree they are perfectly round!
You have outdone yourself this time! How DO you get the chocolate to look so smooth? I used the kroger bark when I did mine and had a horrible time getting it to look so good!
…and are cats next? :)
I just want you to know that not only did I order gourmet writting pens, I have been searching far and wide for the old Mr. Sprinkles!!I’ve just started blogging and you are so inspirational! Thanks for all the cute ideas!
Oh my goodness…you are my hero!
Can you please please pretty please do us all a big favor and post your Halloween ideas early on, so us losers have time to ape your greatness by the time Halloween rolls around? Pleeeeeeeeease!
Bakerella..you’ve done it yet again. My little guys are obsessed with puppies lately..I so cant wait to make these for them. You need your own show on the FOOD NETWORK!!!! Some of us should ban together and write the execs..you serioulsy should have your own show. I would even love a youtube webcast once a week*fingers crossed*
Jenn – just wait… I have more in store.
kira – thanks
Tara – glad you like!
Patty – Ruff! Ruff!
morethanamom2four – thanks
Sarah S. – they would have been perfect!
Jess – fun, huh!
Dawn – Photoshop… you guessed it.
Ana and Savannah (Warrior Princess!) – thanks my friend!
You are genius! I am always amazed by the beautiful creations that you come up with!
I don’t know what else to say about these that hasn’t already been said! They are AMAZING, right down to the photo. I love how the lollipop stick wraps around the “O” in the graphic. Is that done in Photoshop?
I love it! Great techniques…like others, I started thinking of all the other animals you could make using this as the model.
Very very cute! Unfortunately I just threw a puppy birthday party on the 5th for my step daughter. These would have been perfect for it. :D I may still have to try it ‘just because’ sometime.
Those are the cutest!
Bow-WOW! Not only for kids, I know many adults who will bark with excitement for these!
soooooo, so cute!! :)
these are 2 cute! love the flappy ears!
Just when I thought your cake pops couldn’t get any cuter…
These are sooo cute!!

springhill chef – it’s a hobby right now.
lise – cats will be cute, too!
Marsha – patience.
Angela – just wait… they’ll be cute!
ThatGirl – you’ll love that lens.

mommy2twindaughters – don’t do that – you’ll miss out on the Halloween ones.
M Crew – wait and see.
And maybe I should start working on a book. I just need another me.
Super, super cute!
You are so good! You may just knock Martha off her throne one day…
Shut UP! I love these!!!!!!!!! OMG, I can’t wait to make them!!! You are WAY too creative!
Oh my gosh!! You are brilliant! You are truly one of the most creative people I’ve ever “met” (even though we’ve not actually met, I feel like I know you!)!!! These puppies are so darn cute! You absolutely must write a book … I know so many people (including me!) who would buy it! Fantastic!! :)
STOP IT! Don’t you know you’re killing us with the cute! Seriously, when are you going to do a book?
You’re got my creative juices flowing – thanks! I’ve got a ton of ideas for making cake pops now – like baby pops for baby showers (Wilton makes little mini candy pacifiers you could stick in them), bride and groom ones, cat, pig, sheep, cow…you name it, I’ve started to think about it!
Those are almost too cute to eat!!! I will have to make these the next time me and my dog-loving friends get together for an outing to a dog park :)
Those are darling! I love them!
Girl you really got it going on with these Pups! LOL
I love them. another great creation.
What are you going to come up with next!?! You are a genius and I only wish I was as talented. ;)
I could die from the cuteness! I love when you post the cake pops in different themes. For Halloween I was thinking of trying them for the first time and try and shape them like pumpkins…I will see how they turn out. You are so creative and love checking out your new projects!
i am at a loss for words… i just wanna hug all your puppy pops when i saw them. great job!
Too Cute! You are always coming up with new creations…love them!
You amaze me with this “cake pop” talent of yours! What will you come up with next? CUTE little doggies!
Oh, my goodness – my sister is gonna love these! She has two dogs… :)
SOOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE! Do you ever sleep?
My kids would be in heaven if I made these. Thanks for sharing; you are truly an artist!
I love how you lay out the instructions as if we’re all capable of recreating them. So cute!
I bought one of the camera lenses you recommended, it should be here on the 10th!
That is great – I guess technically you could use the same technique with cats, just make the ears different!
I can’t wait to see what you have in store for Halloween!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I too want to know how you get them so round – I’ve made the cake pops, with much success, but the bottoms are a little flat – still pretty though!
these are the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! Great job!
You are amazing! I look forward to your blog posts! You do such fun stuff!
These are so cute!! and Congratulations on the Cupcake Challange win.
Those ARE cute.. but geeze, after all that work I wouldn’t let anyone even TOUCH one, let alone eat it *grin*
Those are the cutest things I have ever seen! If I can find a day or 2 that I have ABSOLUTELY nothing to do, I will surely try them!!!
These are by far my favorite pops! It’s already been said, but you are so talented and creative, and thank you for sharing all of your creations with us!
