Irresistible Mardis Gras Hurricane Pops Recipe 

Nothing speaks ‘Mardis Gras’ quite like cake, or at least it’s the first thing I think of! Pancake, King Cake, cupcakes and the list goes on.. 

We’ve got a real treat for Mardis Gras lovers out there, these chocolate ‘hurricane’ cake pops are the dessert treat that’s going to bring your celebrations to the next level. 

These are seriously perfect for entertaining with their yellow, green and purple sprinkles and sweet icing drizzle to add an irresistible texture and coating to the chocolate cake pop that just explodes with each bite. And if that wasn’t enough, they’re served individually on a popsicle stick! 

Mardis Gras on a Stick! 

If melted white chocolate over some cakesicles doesn’t get your mouth water, I honestly don’t know what will. Cakesicle? Those are the molds you’ll be baking these things in, creating the perfect shape for a delicious dessert on a stick coated with chocolate, icing and sprinkles that you won’t be able to put down! 

Customize These Hurricane Pops Yourself 

Food coloring, colored icing and a chocolate swirl can take these pops in a whole different direction if you so desired. 

Add a little more personality by mixing some food coloring into the melted white chocolate, or even by swirling in some dark and/or milk chocolate into the bowl before coating the molds. Not to mention you can bring in some different colored icing or even meringue flowers to make these things seriously pop!
