If you’ve been around here for a while, you know I’m a big fan of chocolate. It’s my favorite thing to eat. So any time someone invites me to dinner, or when we have our twice annual potluck at our clubhouse, I bring something with chocolate.

Chocolate just makes me happy.

You need chocolate chips and candy melts to make these No Bake Watermelon Cake Pops. My friend Lizzie made them and posted them on Facebook, so of course, my sweet tooth asked her for a dozen. She said they would melt traveling from Washington to Wilmington, NC, so she gave me the recipe instead.

How To Make No Bake Watermelon Cake Pops:

Mix together the cake mix and flour.

Chop the butter (which should be at room temperature) and add it to the dry ingredients. Mix until combined completely.

Add in the food coloring. Stir until the color is throughout. If the color is too light for you, you can always add more. But remember, a little goes a long way.

From now on, be very careful. Food coloring is no joke.

Gently stir in the chocolate chips.

Use a melon baller to scoop balls of the batter and scoop them onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.

Put them in the fridge for an hour or so until they harden.

In a microwavable safe bowl, microwave the green candy melts according to the package.

Stab the pink batter ball with a toothpick. Use it to gently dip it into the green candy melts, coating all sides.
