Santa Cake Pops - Step 3
If your peach coating has cooled or thickened, repeat the microwave heating process. Helpful Hint: A tall narrow bowl works best for dipping cake pops. Keeping the coating warm throughout the entire dipping process is key to having a smooth coating on your cake pops. To avoid having to repeatedly reheat your coating, a chocolate melting pot is a great tool. Dip each cake pop straight down into the peach coating until the cake ball is completely covered and sealed. If you need to angle the cake pop, gently tilt it in one direction and then another. Remove the cake pop from the melted coating by pulling it straight up. Then, turn the cake pop at an angle and gently tap off any excess coating. Turn the cake pop upright.

Before the coating hardens, use tweezers to place two black confetti sprinkles about half way down the cake pop for Santa’s eyes. Then, set a pink sugar pearl another quarter of the way down for the nose. Stand your Santa cake pops upright in a cake pop stand to dry. Once the coating has completely hardened, you can give your Santas rosy cheeks at any time by brushing on a small amount of pink luster dust.
