Can't figure out what to get the folks on your gift list this year? We've got an idea! Our Christmas Cake Pops are as much fun to make as they are to give. You can give them a festive winter wonderland look, decorate with traditional Christmas colors, or any other which way you like. No matter what look you go with, they're sure to make them feel merry!

What You'll Need

  • 1 package red velvet cake mix, baked according to package directions for a 9- x 13-inch baking dish, and cooled
  • 3/4 cup cream cheese frosting
  • 24 (6-inch) cake pop sticks
  • 2 (10-ounce) bags white candy melting discs
  • Assorted holiday mini M & M's and sprinkles
  • Styrofoam board or cake pop holder (See Note)

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, using your hands, roll cake into fine crumbs. Add frosting and mix with your hands until thoroughly combined. Form cake mixture into 24 cake balls. Place a stick gently through the center of each cake ball and place on a baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt candy discs 1 minute. Stir, then continue to microwave at 15 second intervals until candy is melted and smooth. (Do not overheat.)
  3. Hold each cake pop stick and spoon melted candy over entire cake pop, allowing excess to drip off. Immediately decorate with M & M's or sprinkles and place in styrofoam board to hold upright. Repeat until all cake pops are coated and decorated. Refrigerate until coating has hardened.


  • Look for styrofoam or a cake pop holder in the craft section of a store, or just lay the cake pops down on a wax paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Our truffles are another treat that's sure to please!

These cake pops are darn cute, and they taste good too. My family and friends were so happy to receive them for Christmas. I look forward to making them again next year. I might try do some using milk chocolate and see what happens.
