Ornament Cake Pops

I have been avoiding cake pops for some time now. Don’t get me wrong, they taste AMAZING! But they look sooo intimidating to make. However, my creative side couldn’t resist jumping in and creating a new Christmas treat. Check out my instructions below to make your very own ornament cake pops!

Making your own ornament cake pops:

To make these cake pops, I followed the Wilton recipe. These are seriously the most delicious cake pops out there! And, BONUS, they are very soft.

Customizing the ornaments so that they look like ornaments was my own neat idea :)

Materials needed for your ornament cake pops:

Red, green, and white candy melts

Assorted sprinkles

Mini marshmallows

Licorice twists (side note: don’t use the licorice laces… when they bend, they break!)

Cake pops instructions:

You have to plan ahead a little bit so that you dip the cake pop sticks into the same colour of chocolate that you dip the entire Christmas cake pop into.

You also want to plan ahead by preparing the ornament tops and hooks ahead of time. Do this by poking a hole through the marshmallows. I used a cake pop stick to poke the hole. Then, carefully slide both sides of short (approx.  2″) licorice pieces into the marshmallows. Set these aside until they are needed.

Next, split the pops up into red, green and white ones and dip one at a time.
Let the icing drip off. Before the icing settles, sprinkle the sprinkles all over the cake pops, and then set one of your ornament tops on the top of the cake pop settled into the icing :)


Keep the Christmas cake pops cold throughout the process as much as possible. Always take one pop out of the fridge at a time, and put it back in as soon as possible. This will give you the best results :)

I wrapped some of these ornament cake pops in clear bags, and tied a little red and white twine around them to present them as nice Christmas favours :)

And just to prove that I ate one… lol.

I hope you enjoy making these delicious treats!
