1 package (18 1/4 ounces) yellow cake mix
2 teaspoons McCormick® Green Food Color
3/4 cup marshmallow crème
1 bag (14 ounces) white confectionary coating wafers

2. Crumble cake into large bowl. Add marshmallow crème; mix until well blended. Shape into 1-inch balls. Refrigerate 2 hours.

3. Melt coating wafers as directed on package. For each Cake Pop, dip 1/2 inch of lollipop stick into melted coating. Insert dipped end of lollipop stick halfway into cake ball.
