Anyone can make chocolate or vanilla cake pops, but you know the really impressive pop is a Carrot Cake Pop! Grated carrot is mixed with the Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ Carrot Cake Mix and baked. Then it’s time to crumble the baked caked and add the Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting to create these carrot cake balls. All that's left is to dip the cake balls into a melted candy coating and get ready for the perfect bite of carrot cake, all in one. If you're this good with carrot cake, what else can you turn into a cake pop?
