They’re melllllting! Cake pops are crazy fun, especially these “melting snowman” cake pops. Make your standard snowman cake pop, or have some silly fun with the melting snowman instead! This is a fun project for the whole family to make together with Duff Goldman by Gartner Studios baking and decorating products.

Melting Snowmen Cake Pops

1 hour and 15 minutes  /  LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE

Bake a Duff cake in a flavor of your choice in a 9″ x 13″ cake pan. Cool the cake complete, then crumble the cake into a bowl. (yes, we said crumble the cake.) Mix in some cake icing and then roll the cake mixture into balls in two sizes, one slightly smaller than the other.

Stack the two cake balls together, with the small one on top. Use your hand to flatten them slightly to create a “melted” look. Insert a cake pop stick into the top of each, then refrigerate. After about 15 minutes, remove the cake pops from the refrigerator and dip in white melting chocolate, letting the excess coating puddle under each snowman on wax paper, giving it a melted effect. When the coating has set, decorate the snowmen using mini chocolate chips for eyes and buttons and a sliver of an orange gumdrop for the nose (attached with more melted coating). The mouth is made by piping dots of melted mini chocolate chips. Make the hat with a small black gumdrop.
