Remove the cake balls from the freezer and stick cake pop sticks into them. Before sticking the sticks into the cake balls, you should dip the sticks about 5 millimeters into the molten chocolate. Put the cake pops back into the freezer, so that they firm up a little. If you can’t find special cake pop sticks, lollipop sticks will do.
