Christmas Tree Cake Pops

Inspired by the famous Bakerella, I decided to try out some Christmas Tree Cake Pops for a party this afternoon. The kids loved them!

While a tad time consuming, they were relatively simple to make. The hardest part was probably transporting them to the party. I'd like to find a better method than a Styrofoam board the next time I make them.

I used vanilla cake, chocolate frosting, green candy melts and assorted candy for the decorations. While I thought the sprinkles would be more popular with the kids, the red balls seemed to win in terms of popularity.

Bakerella has published a book with all her recipes and methods which are also posted on her blog. My favorite tip is adding Crisco or paramount crystals to the candy melts. This makes the consistency smoother and liquid longer which is important if you are making a lot of them. Let me know if you try making them!

These are so adorable! Cuter than a cupcake and probably not as big of a serving. What a great option. Great job!

Cute idea! I will have to share this with my mom. She has been looking for something fun to do for her work Christmas party. Shoot...I might do this for our work party too!

Come link up!

just darling! lucky people to get such a fun treat. my dad made me a darling Christmas tree that was 1x1's i think and had holes drilled so tiny candy canes could slip through--something like that might work. it all folded up flat when not in use this is sort of the idea he used, only made it a tree shape and made feet on the bottom so it would sit.
