I have this horrible habit of visiting our local Michael’s craft store on the weekends when we don’t have much to do. It’s a gold mine for obsessive bakers like myself where you can find all the latest products for the holidays. I wasn’t disappointed when I went in there last week and found these new treat pops (which you may see me call Push Pops out of habit). They’re a brand new product from Wilton and so gosh darn fun to use!
For Valentine’s Day you can fill them up with a pink cake mix like strawberry or cherry chip and add layers of pink frosting. Of course you’ll need some candy sprinkles too! It’s one of those products that is just so cute and doesn’t require you to be a pastry chef to use.
Each treat pop container comes with a snap on lid that also doubles as a pop stand. So if you’re having a holiday or birthday party and want to set these up on a table it’s super easy.
Or if you’re taking these treat pops to go, just snap the lid on top and the goodies inside will make it through a car ride. You can buy a 6 pack of treat pops for $6.99 or get the larger kit that includes 12 treat pops and a fill-n-serve stand for $15.99. You can also wash and reuse these containers over and over again.
What You’ll Need
- mini cupcake pan
- cake mix & frosting
- Wilton treat pops
- pastry bag (or sandwich baggy)
- candy decorations
These are so easy. Just prepare your favorite cake mix and bake it in a mini cupcake pan. It’s the perfect size for these treat pop containers. Once the cupcakes have cooled, push one into the bottom. Fill your pastry bag or even a plastic sandwich bag with your frosting, cut off the tip and pipe a layer of frosting on top of the first cupcake. Top with sprinkles and repeat the process. You can snap the lid on to transport or save for later.
