These Reindeer Cake Pops Would Make Santa Proud


Rudolph's rosy red nose shines even brighter when he's all done up in cake-pop form. These crafty cuties are great for a Christmas party dessert table, wrapped up as favors, or even used as place card holders (just nestle a name card in the antlers).

How To Make Reindeer Cake Pops

What you'll Need:

  • Your go-to cake pop recipe , coated in brown or chocolate candy melts (Check out our class Party-Perfect Cake Pops for a recipe and dipping how-to!)
  • Red chocolate candies or red jelly beans
  • Cocktail stick
  • Edible glue
  • Food safe paintbrush
  • Ivory or tan pipe cleaners for the antlers
  • White fondant
  • Black sugar pearls

1. Get nosy

Attach the red nose with a small dab of melted chocolate, holding it in place for about a minute to make sure it stays put!

2. Make and add the eyes

Flatten two small balls of fondant into discs, then attach black pearls with edible glue. Stick them above the nose with some melted chocolate! (You can also use pre-made eye decorations here, if you want to save a couple steps.)

3. Add the antlers

Twist pipe cleaners around the cake pop stick, then bend each end into the shape of an antler. Done and done!

One of our favorite things about winter is that it’s more than OK to eat extra cookies and drink hot cocoa with loads of whipped cream. These mug-hugging cookies sit perfectly on the edge of your hot drink, just waiting to be dunked. Cute enough to cheer up the grouchiest Grinch!
