Peppermint Fudge Cake Pops Make GREAT Christmas Gifts And Are Fun To Make!

Christmas is the time of year to spend time with family, and that is exactly what we did. I spend the day with my grandchildren, Brianna, Carissa, and Aiden making Peppermint Fudge Cake Pops and we had so much fun and made some great little gifts for their teachers and school bus drivers. So join us today and learn how you can make this great recipe.

Now wasn't that easy? And so much fun.... oh before I forget you can get the little lollie pop die cut set at My Creative Time. The children were so enthusiastic and this really was fun. Now mind you if I had done this on my own it would take a lot less time but I guarantee you it would not even been half as much fun as spending the time with them.

Here is our little Carissa better known as our Sassy Chef!!! She is showing us how the little balls look before we placed them in the freezer to set up. Note you can also place them in the refrigerator but that would take about 1 hour and we went for the shorter time in the freezer.
The all wanted to show you the cake balls so here is a photo left to right; Aiden, Brianna and our little Sassy Chef Carissa!

As you can see we used our time wisely. While the pops were setting up we got the sticks ready and the sugar for dipping.
Our big boy Aiden did a great job of making the white sticks look like candy canes.
This is my daughter Heather and even she shelped us in this project.
Carissa wasn't trilled with the stick decorating but she hung in there with us.

Well as you can see there are many steps along the way, but we had some great times getting them done and that is what I like about Christmas.... just slowing down enough to spend time with those you love! If you would like the recipe for just click on the word RECIPE and you can have a copy.... mind you when I typed it up I didn't have a photo so I got one off the internet. There are many recipes out there for the same thing and all are similar but I can tell you from first hand experience this one is YUMMY!
Here is what the pops look like after you take them out of the frig or freezer and are ready to dip in candy and decorate....
And here is the tray of finished Peppermint Fudge Cake Pops! It was so much fun and these taste so yummy. The children were thrilled to be able to take them to school for their teachers and actully tell them they made their this little gift! They even gave to the school bus driver and Sunday School teacher is getting one too.
Thank you for joining us today, I hope you enjoyed spending a little time with Brianna, Carissa, Aiden, Heather and I and we would like to wish you all a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!
