    How to Make these Snowmen

    These little guys are very easy to make and I have seen so many different variations of them all over Facebook. You can make just the heads. Give him a three piece body. Add a top hat, Santa hat or a beanie hat. Make a more ruffled or longer scarf. The possibilities are up to you and your creativity!

    Basic Cake Pop Batter

    To make 6 snowmen, you’ll need 1/4 of a 9 x 13 cake and mix it with a tablespoon of frosting to make your cake pop batter. Use a paddle attachment in your mixer for best results. Check out this video on making cake pop batter.


    Get candy to decorate your snowman. I used a fruit roll up for the scarves, sour rainbow candy and candy buttons for the earmuffs, orange hearts for the noses, and small flat sprinkles for the eyes and buttons. You can use many different candies for the outfits and accessories.


    These little guys were easy to make. I hope that you find some time to make some with your kids over the Christmas break. Here are a few more Christmas Cake Pop Ideas: Snow Globes, Snowflakes, Gingerbread Truffles

    Enjoy! And Stay Warm!

    Prep Time 30 minutes
    Total Time 30 minutes


    For the Cake Pop Dough

    • 1/4 of a baked 9 x 13 cake
    • 1 – 3 tablespoon frosting

    For the decorations

    • White candy melts
    • Fruit roll up for the scarves
    • Sour rainbow candy and candy buttons for the earmuffs
    • Orange hearts for the noses
    • Small flat sprinkles for the eyes and buttons
    • Mini chocolate chips for buttons


    1. Make 9 1-inch balls, set six aside and cut the remaining 3 in half. The six large balls are for the body and the smaller ones are for their heads.
    2. Roll the cake pop batter smooth and place it on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Then place it in the fridge.
    3. Melt your candy melts according to directions. AVOID overheating the candy. Melt in the microwave at 70% power and stir every 30 seconds.
    4. Once the candy is melted, remove balls from fridge and get 6 lollipop sticks. Dip 1/4 inch of the stick into the candy and push the cake ball all the way through until a 1/4 to 1/3 inch is visible.
    5. Dip the tip of the stick up the the cake ball and then add the smaller pop to the top. Stand up to dry.
    6. Complete all “bodies” and allow to dry.
    7. Have candy ready to go! Lay it out because you’ll be working fast.
    8. Completely dip the cake pop and tap off the excess. Work quickly and add the headband, earmuffs, eyes and buttons. If you find it to difficult to add while wet, add the candy after it’s dry using wet candy as glue.
    9. To complete the faces, I used a food coloring writing pen to make the mouth and eyes.

    1. So cute, Karyn! I love the ones with the side smirk! I made some snowman cake pops recently too. The biggest challenge I had was getting the top cake pop to stay on the bottom one but I just used the candy coating to hold them together. Good thinking putting the stick all the way through both!

    2. These snowmen look SO nice. I have tried making cake pops on 2 separate occasions and I never get it right. The candy doesn't melt that well. It's not drippy like liquid. It's lumpy and dries fast. I never get even 1 cake ball to be covered evenly. I have to spoon it on and it appears lumpy. I keep puttign it in the microwave for 30 second intervals and stirring but it just ends up stuck to the spoon or stick and never flows like it's supposed to, so I gave up on trying this. i have wasted too much money on it already.

    3. I think in your recipe that you meant to say "stir your white chocolate every 3 minutes white melting it in the microwave oven," not every thirty 30 minutes?

    4. Oh, Karyn! These are awesome!!!! SO cute and such a yummy treat, too! I have definitely NOT mastered the cake pop covering – the balls always seem to fall into the coating or I never get it completely covered. Will have to work on that. Thanks for sharing at Wicked Good Wednesdays! Hope to see you again tomorrow!
