Recipes for Kids

Recipes for kids can be a tool to help children believe anyone can make a difference in the world. Elisa is a great example - she creates desserts to sell to raise for funds for children living in poverty who need medical help. Try to make these cake pops with your kids and let them know they can change the world too.

Elise’s Cake Pops

  • 1 box of cake mix (eggs, oil and water as called for in box recipe)
  • 1 container of ready-to-use cream cheese frosting
  • Wax paper
  • Chocolate for melting (1 bag of white, milk, dark or colored chocolate melts from craft stores works well)
  • Sprinkles or decorations
  • Lollipop sticks (optional)


  1. Bake cake according to directions on box of cake mix. Let cool, then crumble it up.
  2. Mix together cream cheese frosting and cake crumbles. Form into balls (about the size of a pingpong ball) and set on wax paper on a cookie sheet. Refrigerate or freeze until firm (overnight is OK).
  3. Melt chocolate in double boiler. Roll cold cake balls into melted chocolate in the pan until coated.
  4. Remove and set on wax paper, and immediately sprinkle or decorate. Insert a lollipop stick if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
