DIY Pot of Gold Rainbow Donut Pops

DIY Rainbow Pot of Gold DONUT cake pops


  • 1 15 oz box Donut Holes munchkins, etc..
  • 1 lb Merckens Chocolate or similar
  • 24 lollipop sticks
  • 2 Packs Air head extremes
  • Gold crystallized sugar Like Wilton


  • Melt chocolate in microwave safe bowl (gradually). OR use chocolate warmer like I do.
  • Line a tray with parchment paper. Evenly line up 24 donut holes, flat side up on tray.
  • Dip ends of lollipop sticks into chocolate and gently insert into center of donut pop. *Careful not to go out the other side. Let set to to harden. When all popsRendine refrigerate 10 mins just to be sure Ari is and chocolate are set.
  • In the meantime, open package of candy and cut the air head extremes into about 1” strips. Set aside.
  • While chocolate is still warm and fluid, dip each donut pop into the chocolate and swirl around until fully covered. Gently shake off excess and place flat side down onto tray. Press down slightly as you set the pop down to create a flat bottom. Repeat with remaining pops. Refrigerate 5-10 mins to harden.
  • Take each donut pop and hold upright with one hand, dip the times of a fork into the melted chocolate with the other and quickly drizzle across the top of the pop. Sprinkle with gold sugar. *the amount of chocolate used is up to you*
  • While chocolate is still wet, stick the cut air head extreme into the pop so it looks like a rainbow is shooting over the top. Place in a glass jar to dry.
