Ingredients:

Yield: 28 pops

1 box chocolate cake mix
12 oz. stout
1 can frosting or one package cream cheese
1 bag green candy melts (color change is optional)
3 dozen lollipop sticks
gold sprinkles

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix cake mix with stout until batter is smooth. This will make less batter than the regular cake mix instructions.
2. Pour batter into a greased baking pan. Bake according to cake mix instructions or until fully baked. Let cool completely.
3. Finely crumb cake into a large mixing bowl. Mix in 2 tablespoons frosting until mixture forms a slight dough texture. Add more frosting if necessary.
4. Form mixture into ball shapes, about one inch in diameter each. Refrigerate cake balls for about 15-20 minutes.
5. Heat candy melts according to package. Do not overheat. Dip each lollipop stick into melted chocolate about 1/2 inch, insert into cake ball, and then dip entire ball into melted chocolate until completely covered. Tap stick on the edge of a dish to remove excess chocolate. Place cake pop into parchment paper. Repeat for all cake pops.

5. Add sprinkles or extra frosting swirls if desired.
