How To Host A Super Easy Cake Pop Party!

 I love doing things with kids for Christmas! And even though my kids are older now, they will tell you how I still want them to do fun things with me because I am still really the kid at heart! And I have designed this 'Cake Pop Party' with the busy Mom in mind! I have a few things to share with you to let you know that you can pull this off in an hour! I know we all see really gorgeously styled parties around the inter webs, but we can still make the simple things gorgeous!

And remember I said that this was designed for working moms? It all starts with these...plain, old-fashioned timbits...or donut holes from the grocery store if you don't live near one of these!
{And if you require gluten-free, a good alternative is gluten-free rice krispie treats on stick.}
 And then you just pile them into a bowl for kids to use for their cake pops.
{I found this Santa bowl at Goodwill for $1.00. Super cute!}
And then you will need to gather a few other different coloured sprinkles:
And different coloured candy melts like red, green and white, and paper straws or lollipop sticks.
If you have never done this before, place candy melts in small glass bowl and melt in the microwave for 40 seconds, taking out for a stir with a spoon, and then back into the microwave for a few more seconds if necessary. The texture should be really smooth for dipping the 'cake pops'.  And the cake pops don't need to be fully covered in candy melt either...just the bottoms of the donuts will do!
If using paper straws, use scissors and cut into  shorter lengths to use as lollipop sticks.
And here's a trick you will need to know: Poke an end of the lollipop stick into melted wafers before placing into the donut and then let it harden. This will keep the donut on the stick for dipping into the melting wafers.
And with lolllipop sticks inserted and wafers melted, let the kids dip away!
They can totally get their 'cake pops' on and create any kind of treat they like by dipping the pops into melted wafers and then into sprinkles.
And things might get a bit messy, but it will be super fun!
Place cake pops on waxed paper or paper plates to let dry.
Then eat! Or wrap each pop in plastic wrap to take home.
And to finish off the 'Cake Pop Party', serve a snack of crackers, cheese and grapes and play Christmas music.
The kids will have the most outstanding time!
And you will be known as one cake popin'-rockin' mama!
