Ok, so yesterday’s post was so easy, I will try another today…
Today we tried to make reindeers, but they were a lot tougher!
I started by melting butterscotch chocolate chips. I simply put the bag of the chips into cup of hot water until they melted -I used the bag from the bulk food store I bought them in. After they melted, I cut off the corner and squeezed out “y’s” to use for the antlers.
Then, while they were cooling, I used the double boiler to melt some semi sweet chocolate chips. We dipped the sticks into the melted chocolate, let it set for a couple minutes, then dipped the cake pops in the chocolate.
This is when it got tricky and messy. The chocolate has to be soft to put the antlers in, but sticking the antlers in was tricky! The cake kept breaking and falling off, so make sure you make extras! I did the antlers first, then used the same candy eyes as the snowman (bought from Bulk Barn). We used cinnamon hearts for the noses. I let them cool on the styrofoam tray, then packaged them in cellophane bags. We made about 10, then got a little frustrated and made some plain ones, dipped in various sprinkles, with a cinnamon heart on top.
