For more information on these Holiday Treats, see below:
Christmas Cake Pops - First, bake one box of cake mix and let it cool. Next, combine cooled cake with one tub of frosting in a bowl. Mix the cake and frosting together, and roll into golf ball sized balls. Place cake balls on wax paper and put them in the freezer to harden. Once slightly hardened, insert a wooden or plastic craft stick into each ball. Next, dip each cake pop into melted chocolate & decorate with sprinkles, edible glitter, or even crushed candy canes. Lastly, stand each cake pop on wax paper to harden. A simple way to make delicious Christmas Cake Pops both kids and adults will love!
Kellogg's Rice Krispies Snowmen - First, make Rice Krispies Treats following the recipe on the Kellogg's Rice Krispies box. Break off pieces of the Rice Krispies Treats and roll into two golf ball sized balls. Next, use a small amount of melted chocolate to secure the snowman's head and body together. To decorate, use melted chocolate to attach a marshmallow top hat to the snowman and then decorate his face and body with candy pieces, sprinkles, and frosting. Your snowman will now look as good as he will taste!
Dipped Holiday Cookies - First, take one package of chocolate or vanilla sandwich cookies. Insert a toothpick into the cream-filled center of each cookie. Next, dip each cookie into melted chocolate and decorate with crushed candy canes, sprinkles, or colored icing. Lastly, place decorated cookies on wax paper, remove the toothpick and allow to harden for 5 minutes. What a fancy twist to a fun-filled holiday cookie!
