Snowmen Cake Pops Recipe

Snowmen cake pops

Snowmen cake pops would be a great item to sell at a Christmas fair or for children who don’t like to eat Christmas cake but still want something a bit special. Here’s our Snowmen Cake Pops Recipe.

These little fellas have been sitting appropriately in the fridge, looking far too cute – so I just had to share them. I like making cake pops because they are so tasty, and making different shapes is so much fun. These are really lovely because the desiccated coconut looks just like snow and makes them taste really Christmassy.

I also like the taste of coconut and white chocolate. I hadn’t tried making cake pops with more than one ball on them, and this was easier than I thought – for some reason, it helped the cake pops stay on the stick much better.

Ingredients

(makes about 8-10 cake pops)

  • Ready-mixed buttercream icing
  • Madeira cake
  • Bar of milk chocolate/ white candy melts
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Candy eyeballs
  • Rainbow sweets/ laces
  • Lollypop sticks
  • Chocolate drops
  • Rolos or other chocolate or candy to make hats
  • Large chocolate buttons
  • Orange candied slices.

Method1

  1. Cut off the sides of the cake and crumble it into a bowl.
  2. Mix the icing with the cake crumbs and roll it into a ball. It should be quite firm. Wrap it in cling film and put it in the fridge for at least half an hour.
  3. Roll the mixture into balls.
  4. Add two cake balls to a lolly stick so it looks like a body.
  5. Melt the chocolate over a bowl of boiling water.
  6. Dip the cake pops in the melted chocolate or candy melts. These cake pops are quite big, so you will need a really deep container. I also used a knife to spread it over the bottom; it doesn’t matter if it looks messy, as it will be covered in coconut.
  7. Sprinkle the cake pops with desiccated coconut.
  8. To decorate, add candy eyes and an orange triangle for the nose. I used candy oranges and cut them into smaller triangles.
  9. Add chocolate buttons for the buttons on the tummy.
  10. To make the hat, you need two sweets: a fat cylinder (I used a Rolo) and a flat circle (I used a large chocolate button).
  11. Finally, wrap a long, thin sweet around the neck; laces are good.
  12. Put in the fridge to set.

Tips

Put the cakes and sticks back in the fridge for another half an hour as they seem to stay on the stick better. It also helps if you put a bit of melted chocolate onto the ends to make sure it sticks.

To display I use florists foam and stick them at different heights. I wrapped this with ribbon and scattered lots of glitter and Christmas sequins around.
