Coconut & Mango Sticky Rice Cake Pops

  • Makes 46 cake pops
  • PREP: 45 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 hour 15 minutes

The classic sweet-and-salty Thai dessert in poppable, unstoppable form.

Creamy, dreamy coconut rice with tender, ultra-ripe mango is already a great dessert, but we took it to the next level with portable, party-ready cake pops. There’s white cake and sweet-and-salty coconut rice inside the pops, then a hint of tart mango from our new Coconut & Mango Sticky Rice seasoning! This recipe makes a lot, but the pops freeze easily—just make sure you freeze them before coating in chocolate—so you can make any day a cake pop kind of day.
