Snowman Cake Pops Recipe
Additional ingredients to prepare cake mix per box instructions
2 cups white chocolate chips or candy melts (if using candy melts, omit shortening)
1/4 cup All-Vegetable Shortening
Red food coloring
Black food coloring
Orange food coloring
Small round piping tip
PREPARE cake mix according to box instructions using water, oil and eggs. Bake in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan according to package instructions. Cool completely.
CRUMBLE cooled cake into extra-large bowl. Beat with mixer on medium speed until fine crumbs, about 2 minutes. Spoon ¾ of the tub of frosting over cake crumbs and reserve the remaining frosting. Beat until evenly blended. Cover and freeze 30 minutes.
LINE a baking pan with wax paper. Roll cake mixture into balls, creating a smaller ball for the snowman head and a larger one for the body. Freeze for 30 minutes.
COMBINE chocolate chips and shortening (or candy melts) in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute; stir. Microwave in additional 30 second intervals until completely melted and smooth when stirred. If desired, tint a small amount of candy melts red to make a snowman’s hat. Dip each treat stick into the candy melt to cause adhesion between the cake pops. Place the “head” of the snowman on first and then add the “body” for each snowman, pushing the entire snowman onto the treat stick.
PLACE snowmen into the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Taking a few snowmen out at a time, dip the snowmen cake pops into a small bowl or cup of white candy melt. Let the cake pops dry for 5 minutes on a baking pan lined with wax paper.
TINT part of the remaining frosting orange for the snowman noses and the rest black for the snowman bodies. Place into two piping bags with a piping tip if desired. Pipe eyes and snowman buttons with the black frosting onto each cake pop. Pipe a nose onto each snowman with the orange frosting. Top with sprinkles from frosting lid.
