Santa Cake Pops - Step 4
To make the hat on your Santa cake pops, be ready with marshmallow bits, red disco dust, and white sparkling sugar. Melt the red candy melts. Turn each cake pop upside down and dip it into the coating to cover half the distance between the top of the pop and Santa’s eyes. If you would like your Santa cake pops to have sparkly hats (more sparkle = more cuteness!), gently sprinkle red disco dust on the wet coating. Place one marshmallow bit on top of the cake pop to make the ball on Santa’s hat. Let the red coating harden then wipe off any excess disco dust with a clean, dry paint brush. Melt the white candy melts. Use a toothpick to spread the coating around the rim of Santa’s hat. Sprinkle white sparkling sugar onto the coating while it is still wet. Then, set the cake pops aside until all the coating has hardened.
