Snowmen Cake Pops
We have tons of snow here right now (and negative teen temps!) to make a snowman but these snowmen are way more delicious! I made these for Christmas treats, but they could easily be a winter treat too! They are pretty easy to make (at least as far as cake pops go) and I liked the added treat of the reese's cup with the cake pop!
Snowmen Cake Pops
From: Elizabeth's Dutch Oven
Makes 30-40 pops
Cake Mix flavor of your choice (and eggs, and oil according to directions)
One can frosting of your choice
1 lb white candy melting wafers
Orange tic tacs
black food safe marker
Mini Reese's peanut butter cups
1. Bake cake according to directions in 9x13 pan. Let cool completely.
2. Crumble cake very small into a large bow. Add about 2/3 can of frosting and mix together with hands until evenly moist. May need to add a little more frosting if needed, but should not be overly moist.
3. Shape mixture into balls and place on wax paper on a cookie sheet. Freeze for 15-30 minutes.
4. Melt the white wafers. Stick sucker stick through the center of the mini reese's cup and repeat for all the sticks to make hats.
5. Remove balls from freezer and dip end of sucker stick in melted chocolate and then in the ball. Then dip ball into the melted chocolate and completely cover. Lightly tap to remove excess.
5. Place cake ball back onto cookie sheet and push down reese's close to the ball. Lightly push one orange tic tac in the center of one side of the ball that will be the face. Repeat until all the balls are done.
6. When chocolate is dry, take edible food-safe marker and draw on on eyes and mouth.
*** You can also make with out reese's cups if you don't want them to have hats. :) ***
