Reindeer Pops {DIY}

Happy Monday and can you believe Christmas is just a couple of days away!?  Well this week we thought it would be fun to revisit some of our past holiday favorite posts.

Today we wanted to share our Reindeer Pops we made a couple of holidays past.  It comes from the darling Candy Making for Kids cookbook by the super talented Courtney Dial Whitmore, who is also the genius behind thePizzazzerie Blog which is all about entertaining with style! We have followed this blog for years and it has the most darling stuff when it comes to hosting parties and fun eats!

We just fell in love with this Candy Making for Kids cookbook and know you will too! It’s full of fun and creative recipes that are perfect for getting your little peanuts involved and letting them help make the cute creations! There are tons of darling holiday recipes and everyday treats! We chose to create the “Rudolph the Reindeer Pops” that are the cutest things ever for a holiday party, gifts for friends/neighbors, or just for fun at home. The best part is they are super easy to make and our little helper, Irelynn, had a blast making them!

RUDOLPH THE REINDEER POPS
– chocolate bark
– 2-inch/ 2 1/2-inch circle cutters
– lollipop sticks or paper straws
– mini pretzels
– red hots, gum drops and peppermint candies for decorating
– candy eyes
– holiday ribbon for bows

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Melt 4 ounces of chocolate bark at a time in a heatproof bowl in the microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring well between intervals until smooth. Pour chocolate into the circle cutters that are placed on the parchment paper. Fill about 1/2 inch of chocolate into each circle cutter. Allow chocolate to cool for 2 to 3 minutes and then remove cutters. The chocolate will spread just a little. Push the lollipop sticks {or paper straws} into the chocolate and twist to coat with chocolate. Place 2 pretzels at the top for the reindeer’s head and antlers. Add a nose and eyes. Let lollipops harden for about 30 minutes before removing from the cookie sheet.
