The holiday season is always a wonderful time of the year full of family, friends, gift giving, and, of course, baking. This year I decided to try out something a little different. While I LOVE to make (and eat!) Christmas cookies, I came across some extremely cute cake pops that I just had to try! For my first “experiment” I used Bakerella‘s cute picture to create my own, almost as cute, reindeer cake pops.
To create these delicious pops I used:
-chocolate cake balls, made from a box mix and store bought frosting
-dark chocolate candy melts
-mini pretzels, broken in half
-brown and red M & M’s
-white round sprinkles
-black food pen
I love dark chocolate, which is why I used the dark chocolate candy melts, however, since the chocolate was so dark, when I tried to draw on the reindeer’s mouth with the black food pen, it wouldn’t show up. I also think the next time I make these I will break out the middle part of the pretzel so the antlers will look less like ears!
I used half of the cake balls to make the reindeers and the other half to make some festive cake pops! Again, I used the dark chocolate candy melts to coat the cake pops, along with some red, green, and white sprinkles.
Happy holiday cake popping!
