With the recent announcement of the Wilton Pops! publication, I couldn’t help but be inspired to try some sweets on a stick myself, all focused on Christmas. For the next few days, I hope you’ll be inspired to try some pops yourself. In most cases, these are really simple to make, make cute stocking stuffers or even gift tags.

My first idea was to make some festive Santa Hat Cake Pops. To get started, you’ll just need to start with the basic recipe of how to make a cake pop. Instead of the typical round shape, I molded this one into the shape of a crayon tip.

I found it easiest to gently roll the rim of the hat in white candy melts before attempting the red portion.

Now you can simply dip the top of the hat straight into the red candy melts, after the white has dried.

For the top you can use a white Spree style candy, a rolled up ball of white fondant or any white candy that you may have on hand.

    • Hey Laura, those are first dipped in red candy melts, let them dry, then using white candy melt, pipe thin cross sections and quickly sprinkle them with white decorating sugar. :)
