Christmas is creeping up awfully fast this year. If you're like me, then you're inspired to make holiday themed goodies, but don't have a lot of extra time to spend in the kitchen baking up treats from scratch. Don't get me wrong, I always make up a few batches of Christmas cookies and the occasional pie around the holidays, but anything extra is seriously a tight squeeze with wrapping presents, decorating and meal planning— it's amazing that I even have time for that!
This year I'm taking a simpler approach and I'm putting together a few fun, kid-friendly recipes that take no time at all to prepare. The first treat I'm making are these extremely cute powdered sugar Snowman Donut Pops— with no cooking involved and only a few ingredients, they'll be a hit at any holiday party or get together.
Snowman Donut Pops Recipe
- 18 Mini Powdered Sugar Donuts
- 2 Fruit By the Foot
- 1/4 cup White Melting Chips
- 12 Skittles
- 2 Orange Starburst
- 6 Lollipop Sticks
- Black Gel Icing
Heat White Candy Chips in large bowl by microwaving for 30 seconds; stirring and repeating until melted.
Dip lollipop stick in white chocolate. It will help to act as glue to keep donuts from slipping.
Push 3 donuts onto stick to form head and body.
Place a small glob of white chocolate below bottom donut to keep it from sliding.
Lay donuts flat to set.
Cut Starburst candy in half, and then cut each half on the diagonal and mold to form carrot shape.
Cut Fruit by the Foot in about 6" lengths and wrap around snowman to make scarf.
Using gel icing pipe black dots to make "coal" eyes and mouth.
Use white chocolate to set Skittles as buttons in 2 bottom body donuts.
Use white chocolate to set Starburst "carrot" nose in the center of donut head.
Allow to set & enjoy!
Those are really cute snowman!
