1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons buttercream

1 cup white chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Grease a square pan and keep it aside.
  2. To a bowl combine cake mix, eggs, milk, oil, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla extract. Mix it well for 2 minutes until the cake batter is well combined.
  3. Transfer the batter to the prepared cake pan and bake for 25 minutes until the toothpick inserted comes clean.
  4. Allow the cake to cool down and  break the cake into 4-5 pieces and crumble it.
  5. Add buttercream, to the cake crumble and mix it well.
  6. Take a golf ball sized portion and shape them to round using your hands. Refrigerate the ball shaped cake pops for 10 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, in a microwave safe bowl melt the white chocolate along with the coconut oil. Dip the tip of the cake pop stick and insert into the round shaped pops halfway and place it in a plate and freeze again for 10 minutes.
  8. Powder a teaspoon of black tea using a mortar pestle and add them to the white chocolate and mix well.
  9. Dip the cake pops into the white chocolate and coat them completely and tap to avoid the dripping of the chocolate.
