I’m not sure if it’s the pink button nose or the rosy cheeks, all I know is I can’t help but “aawwww…” out loud when I see these adorable Santa Christmas cake pops. They are sure to be the cutest Christmas treat on the table at any holiday party!

Step 1: Supplies

To make Santa cake pops you will need:
  • White cake balls
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Red, white, and peach candy melts
  • Marshmallow bits
  • Red disco dust (optional)
  • White sparkling sugar
  • White tiny sugar pearls
  • Pink sugar pearls
  • Pink luster dust (optional)
  • Black confetti sprinkles
  • Toothpicks
  • Tweezers (clean and used for food only)
  • Small paint brush (clean and used for food only)
  • Styrofoam block or cake pop stand
<p>Disco dust is not edible. It is plastic craft glitter and should not be applied to food that will be eaten. It doesn't matter that it is non-toxic--so is playdoh, craft glue, and silly putty, but we don't decorate food with those, either.</p><p>You should be using edible cake sparkles [colored gum arabic], unflavored gelatin [colored and ground into flakes], or fine grain sanding sugar [bought colored or colored using a dot of gel paste color rubbed into it.</p>
Adorable! I cant wait to try this.
Those beards are the cutest! What brand of candy melts do you use? I always have the worst luck with them.
Penolopy, for the Santa cake pops I used almond bark and colored it with candy coloring. I find the almond bark has a thinner consistency than the candy melts. I also like the Make n Mold candy melts. I recently learned that you can use paramount crystals to thin the coating so I will be trying that soon. Also, you can add vegetable oil to your coating to thin it.
