  • Pound cake
  • Semisweet chocolate chips
  • Sprinkles or small candies, for decorating


  1. Cut pound cake into 1-inch slices and cut into rounds with a 2 1/2-inch cookie cutter. Microwave semisweet chocolate chips until melted.

  2. Place one round at a time on tines of a fork and submerge in chocolate. Transfer to a wire rack set in a rimmed baking sheet and let excess drip off, 5 minutes.

  3. While chocolate is still wet, transfer rounds to a parchment-lined baking sheet with an offset spatula. Carefully insert lollipop sticks. Decorate with sprinkles or small candies. Refrigerate until set, 10 minutes.
