Traditionally, most of us do up a plate of cookies or other goodies to take to neighbors. Why not do something different this year? Your friends, family, and neighbors will be thrilled to get a handful of these delightful (and delicious) cake pops!
If you look in the background, you'll see antlers and ears for the reindeer. I always pipe the chocolate pieces I will be adding on to the cake pop first and allow them to cool before I dip the cake ball in chocolate. That way, I can simply place the cooled chocolate antler, ear, or whatever, onto the dipped and still wet cake ball. Once it cools and dries, those ears and antlers (and sixlets and eyes) won't budge! And, unlike fondant, it actually tastes great!
For a simple gift, place the cake pop in a small bag (like this) and tie with a cute ribbon or use a bread tie and twist to keep the pop in the bag. If you are feeling really ambitious, you can create a box filled with these little guys to make a fancier gift.
