No need to pop any questions to your swolemate this Valentine’s day, just make them cake pops and they will be sure to notice your gains! The newest flavor of Core ISO, Chocolate Peppermint Bark, is the perfect base for these cake pops with a lightly minty flavor and sweet chocolate.  Each cake pop packs 7g of protein and it’s sure to be love at first bite.


  • 1 scoop (28g) Chocolate Peppermint Bark Core ISO
  • 1 cup (106g) Kodiak Cakes chocolate flapjack mix
  • 2 T. (14) coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. (5g) cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp. no calorie sweetener
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. peppermint extract
  • 1 whole egg
  • ½ cup Fairlife chocolate milk


  • 1 scoop (28g) Chocolate Peppermint Bark Core ISO
  • 3 T. (56g) light cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup (56g) Fage 0% greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp. zero calorie sweetener
  • 1 T. skim milk

Chocolate Coating

  • 6oz. (12T, 168g) semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 16 lollipop sticks


Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl until combined then add egg, milk and peppermint extract. Batter will be sticky. Use non-stick cooking spray to coat a medium loaf pan and spread batter in pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Don’t overcook as cake will become dry and center may be slightly doughy. Let cool slightly while you prepare the frosting. Combine cream cheese, yogurt and sweetener then add protein powder and milk. In a medium size bowl, crumble the entire cake and add frosting then mix well. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Roll dough into 16 equal size balls. Double boiler is recommended for melting chocolate, but microwave can be used. Melt chocolate stirring frequently over medium heat. Dip end of lollipop stick into chocolate then insert into balls. Place cake pops into freezer for 10 minutes. Remove from freezer and using your hands re-roll cake pop to smooth any edges. Carefully roll cake pop into melted chocolate and allow excess chocolate to drip off. Garnish with desired topping before cake pop hardens. You can place them upright or down and store cake pops in the fridge.
