When making chocolate cake pops, are you supposed to use chocolate ganache to cover it? Do people use regular candy melts? I tried making a chocolate cake pop and used bright pink candy melt and maybe it’s just me, the flavor was a little off? Not sure if chocolate and candy melts are a good mix?

Exactly what -K8 said!  I've covered cake pops with real chocolate and I've covered them with candy melts, both work fine.

You could cover your cake pops with ganache, but would be kinda fiddly. And expensive. As K8memphis said, no rules. I use just plain ole chocolate chips. I can buy a brand here in Canada that contains no waxy compounds. Just chocolate and cocoa butter. But I’ve also used Walmart brand chocolate chips, and they worked great too. I personally don’t like candy melts. But I do know that’s all that’s available for some. I have flavourings made just for chocolate I use…caramel, pecan, gingerbread. Soooo good.
