  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Peel the apple and finely grate it. Be careful not to grate the core. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add in the cake mix, apple juice, oil, eggs, and grated apple. Mix until combined.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 29 - 31 minutes or until done. Insert a toothpick into the center of the cake and if it comes out clean or with moist crumbs, it's done.
  • Let the cake cool completely.
  • Crumble the cake into a large bowl. Add in the vanilla frosting and apple butter. Stir with a spatula or with a hand mixer until a big cake pop ball forms.
  • Scoop the cake pops out with a 1 1/2 or 2 tablespoon cookie scoop and place on a piece of wax paper. I used a 2 tablespoon scoop.
  • Roll the cake pops into balls. Shape them into apples by applying pressure towards the bottom of the ball so it's smaller.
  • Flatten the bottom by pressing it onto the wax paper.
  • Melt the vibrant green and green candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments and stir after each increment. Repeat until the candy melts are completely melted.
  • Add in 4 1/2 teaspoons of coconut oil and stir until combined.
  • Dip the cake pop sticks into the candy melts and insert into the center of the cake pops. Let the candy melt harden completely.
  • Dip the cake pops into the candy melts and place onto wax paper.
  • Let the candy melts harden.
  • Add the black candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments and stir after each increment until it's completely melted.
  • Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons of coconut oil.
  • Pour the black candy melts into a sandwich bag. Cut a small hole in one of the corners.
  • Cover the top of the cake pop with the black candy melts and make some drizzles.
  • Put the black sanding sugar in a shallow bowl.
  • Sprinkle the sanding sugar on the black candy melts. Work quickly so the candy melts don't harden before the sugar is added.
