Valentine’s Day 7UP® Cake Pops are made with 7UP cake, vanilla frosting and coated in white chocolate with fun holiday sprinkles.
7UP is for more than great punches and mixed drinks! You can use your favorite lemon-lime soda for cake too! 7UP gives your cake a really fluffy texture making it the perfect ingredient for baking.
Typically Valentine’s Day in my household is spent with my husband and children. We have a nice dinner and eat treats while watching movies. With the versatility of 7UP I am going to set up a whole Valentine’s Day spread for our movie marathon this year. I have our yummy dessert handled with these 7UP Cake Pops, will set up some pink decorations and make a kid-approved punch with 7UP and pink lemonade.
Let the family Valentine’s Day festivities begin!
First, a stop to Walmart is in order to pick up decorations and goodies.
Your Walmart shopping list:
- Basic cake ingredients : eggs, butter, white cake mix and vanilla frosting. Pink food coloring is optional.

- Cake pop sticks and drying stand.
- Movies and pink lemonade to make our movie night complete.

Valentine’s Day 7UP® Cake Pops
Cake Pops are a fun dessert to make and the kids can even help out a bit. If this is your first time making cake pops, don’t be intimidated! These are easy to make and don’t fret over perfection (mine certainly aren’t perfect) because they will be delicious regardless!
Start by baking your cake according to the instructions on the box swapping water for 7UP and swapping oil for butter. Feel free to add in a pinch of pink food coloring for extra wow. Once the cake has cooled, remove any browned edges and crumble the cake in a bowl. This is where the kids can have fun helping you out in the kitchen!
Add the frosting into bowl and thoroughly mix.
Form your balls of cake. I like to use a cookie scoop for consistent sizing and then roll with my hands until a ball is formed. Place the balls onto a parchment covered baking sheet and chill in fridge.
Remove the cake balls from fridge and microwave the white chocolate. To heat up your chocolate, place into a tall glass or mug and heat for 90 seconds, stirring in 30 second intervals. Adding a tablespoon of coconut oil into the chocolate before melting can help thin out the chocolate and make it easier to work with while dipping your cake pops.
Dip each cake pop stick end into the melted chocolate and push into the cake balls.
Time to dip each cake pop. Gently dip each cake pop into the chocolate until fully submerged. Raise the cake pop up while slightly twisting the stick. Place onto the cake pop drying stand. Decorate with sprinkles immediately or wait until the white chocolate is completely dry to add some pink chocolate designs.
Once your Valentine’s Day 7UP Cake Pops completely dry, you can place into a jar or small decorative glass on a table with the great Valentine’s Day décor you found at Walmart. Having a family movie night like us? Mix up with pink lemonade with 7UP in a pitcher and start the movies!
Have extra cake pops? Place your cake pops into a mini box with a bow to gift neighbors, co-workers and friends.
