Just like with any other holiday: It’s coming so fast! Before you know it you have so much stuff on your to-do list that you get very stressed-out and this, at least for me, is no fun at all.
So I thought to post my Christmas Snowman Cake Pops now instead of in December.
When I make my baking plans for holidays, I usually look stuff up 1 or 2 months early and start planning what to bake, what to cook, how to decorate my place etc.
And when I recently thought of making Christmas Cake Pops, I knew it had to be Snowmen :-)
I love these little fellas, because these Snowmen aren’t the regular kind. I changed them up a little bit comparing to the usual kind.
They even fit perfectly to Valentines Day (indeed there is snow often in February) because of the little hearts I used as bottons.
Please read on to see more photos and to get the recipe.
- Prep Time 20 minutes
- Baking Time 10 minutes in refrigerator
- Difficulty Easy
For the Christmas Snowman Cake Pops:
- 1 package OREO cookies or for Europeans: 3 and a half packages a 176g
- 1 8oz. package cream cheese (I use 176g packages (6.2 ounces)
- white Candy Melts – I use Merckens and Wilton Candy Melts
- white sanding sugar
- orange sprinkles for the noses
- heart-shaped sprinkles, choose any color you like
- Americolor Edible Food Pen
- Edible glue
- little brush for edible glue
- tweezers (to place hearts and nose precisely)
- Lollipop Sticks
Additional Items you may want to get, makes a nice gift:
- Lollipop plastic covers, to give away
- ribbon for tying, to give away
- Prepare yourself before you actually start. Get everything out on the counter you need, so you do not stress yourself in the middle of the decorating process :-)
- 1. Now, make the NO BAKE Snowman Cake Pops: Grind your Oreo cookies to fine crumbs in a food processor
- 2. Put the crumbmix into a boal and hand mix with cream cheese. I use gloves though, because it gets messy :-) Especially when you have longer nails, it takes a while to be “oreo/creamcheese-free” again. So just use gloves, or when you have kids, I am sure they would love to help you with this step :-)
- 3. Keep in mind that the dough should have the consistency of play-dough.
- 4. Roll the dough into balls and form them into the typical Snowman shape, then refrigerate them for at least 10 minutes to firm up.
- 5. Now melt your candy wafers.
- 6. Dip a little bit of the lollipop stick in the melted candy, then stick the lollipop stick in the Cake Pop (half way) and dip the Cake Pop in the melted candy wafers.
- 7. Now you can add the hearts as buttons, but I actually waited until everything was set and dry.
- 8. Put the cake pops in a styrofoam block to dry completely.
- 9. Get it started. Paint the eyes and mouth as dots on the snowman cake pops.
- 10. Now go get your edible glue to work: Dip your brush in the glue and put it on the cake pop, where you want the nose and hearts to be placed.
- 11. Then carefully (with help of tweezers) add the hearts one by one and nose-sprinkle to make the snowman-face complete :-) And you’re done.
It is really simple and I think it’s a great treat for christmas. People will love them, I bet!
Bakerella inspired me. I am sure she inspires everyone who makes Cake Pops.
I mean: she made them first, and she is absolutely amazing with her creativity. If you have not heard about her, please pay her website a visit!
Have a good week, I’ll grab me a slice of cake for breakfast now…mhmmmm…
