Snowman Cake Pops

I made these snowmen pops last year and just never got around to posting them. I think they are pretty darn cute. The black confetti sprinkles are perfect for two eyes made out of coal. The noses are orange sunflower seeds. The mouths are drawn on with a black edible ink pen.

The hats are made from regular and mini size Oreos.


Cookies make them even more awesome don’t you think.

Want to make some? Follow the basic instructions for cake pops and use the following to decorate:

White candy melts
Black confetti sprinkles
Orange sunflower seeds
Black edible ink pen
Regular Oreos
Miniature Oreos
Styrofoam block

  • Prepare the hats first. Separate Oreos and remove the creme center. The miniature Oreos can get a lot of crumbs stuck to the side of the creme center, so take a toothpick and scrape the surface off for a white edge.
  • Use some of the melted coating to attach the miniature Oreo to the regular size Oreo half and set aside.
  • Dip the cake pops and while the coating is still wet, attach the sunflower seed nose and the Oreo hat and let dry.
  • Then attach the confetti sprinkle eyes by dotting on a small amount of coating with a toothpick and attach the sprinkles.
  • Draw the mouths with the edible ink pen and let dry standing in a styrofoam block.

And voila … Snowman Cake Pops … or Snowhead Cake Pops … nevermind.

Now these are pretty cute like I said before… they remind me of what a snowman would look if I tried to build one in the yard. Not that we ever really get that much snow here. They are more like ice men than snowmen in the south. But this weekend I was thinking about them and I decided they were a just little too generic.

So I decided to try something a little more iconic.

Prepare yourself. These really are cute.


Stop it. I can hardly believe they are real and I made them.


The hats were made by tinting white candy coating with black candy color to get a dark gray. Then the coating was poured into these candy molds.


Now, if you want a more floppy hat look like the ones in the back of this photo, then try dipping Reese’s in the gray candy color.


Unwrap them first… but you knew that. And make sure the coating has cooled off or else it will melt the candies before you can attach them to the hat base.

Want to make some of these? These are more involved, but you can do it. I know you can because a lot of you have been sending me some fantastic pics of snowmen. With licorice scarves and Rolo hats. Keep em coming. Follow the basic instructions for cake pops and use the following to decorate:

White candy melts
White confetti sprinkles
Red mini M&M’s
Black edible ink pen
Red edible ink pen
Black candy color
Pink jumbo confetti sprinkles (You can find jumbo flower sprinkles and you can skip drawing the petals. I just didn’t have any on hand.
Blue confetti sprinkles
Orange gumdrops
Japanese somen noodles (you can also use pasta, it’s just a little thicker.)
Disc candy mold
Cordial cup candy mold
Reese’s (optional)

  • Prepare the hats first. Melt candy coating and add candy coloring until the desired shade of gray is achieved.
  • Pour coating in the molds and place in the freezer for a few minutes to set.
  • When completely dry, remove and attach the top of the hat to the base by using some melted candy coating.
  • Then attach a pink jumbo sprinkle to the hat using a small amount of candy coating. Next attach a smaller blue confetti sprinkle on top of the pink one. If you can find jumbo flower sprinkles, you can skip drawing the petals on.
  • With a black edible ink pen draw on the hat details if you like. But be prepared to suck up the ink in your edible in pens.
  • Now dip the cake pops in white candy coating. Before the coating sets, attach the hats to the snowman head.
  • Use a new block of styrofoam… one that hasn’t been used for cake pops before. Because you will want these to stand straight up due to the weight of the hat. If you use old styrofoam, the integrity of the holes may be compromised and they might fall over.
  • When they are completely dry, attach the nose and eyes using more melted candy coating.
  • Draw on the mouths and the eye details with the black edible ink pen.
  • Then cut some orange gumdrops into smaller shapes.
  • Use a toothpick to drill a small hole in the cake pop mouth.
  • Break noodles down into one inch pieces and insert one end into the gumdrop shape and the other into the mouth for pipes. By the way these will be extremely delicate, so space them out in the styrofoam.
  • Note: you can also drill holes into a wood block to guarantee straight holes.

Oh yeah…

Happy New Year!!!

You know I had to kick it off with cake pops, so hope you like em.

  1. Could you please provide the dimensions of the Snowman hat candy molds? Thank you. Bev

  2. These were a hit at my son’s holiday party! We did the first type…a little easier for a 2nd grader to help out with. :)

    You’re amazing!

  3. They are so cute. I was wondering if you knew where you found the molds for the hats?

  4. I just wanted to say that I am absolutely loving all of your recipes and amazing creations. I especially love the beautiful Christmas ones, and I am really looking forward to giving some of them a try with my 7 year old daughter. We both love to bake and I think we are getting pretty good at it. Thanks so much for providing people with your magical, edible creations and inspiring us to go above the normal Christmas goodies and try our hand at making the holiday treats even more special.

  5. Can I use black food coloring instead of black candy colour

  6. Because it said page not found

  13. Absolutely LOVE these!! So, so cute :)

    I also wanted to let you know that I featured you on my blog today:

  14. These snowmen are amazing, you are so talented. I would love to make these this year but, the link for the candy disc mold says they are not available. Would you know of another source for that mold or one that you think would work just as well. Thanks

  15. Love all your ideas and even made a few….great fun! However, is it me…or maybe I need better edible markers….the candy melts seem to be too waxy….my writers are very thin/weak and I don’t get a good color to my pops…what do you think?

  16. I made these for my kids’ snowman birthday party, and they were a hit. I didn’t want to sort through sunflower seeds for the orange ones, so I used mini m&ms. I couldn’t find black confetti sprinkles, so I used mini m&ms for that too. A slightly different look, but it worked great.

  17. I loved this recipe and made up a bunch of “guys” this weekend :) Thank you so much for posting. I put together a video to show my appreciation:

  18. My Oreo hats keep falling off my snowman heads:(

  25. These are so adorable and all the ones I have seen so far are wonderful!! I tried my hand at just decorating a cake pop for Halloween since my friend made them but I would like to try making a few batches myself in the very near future. I was making them to give out as a thank you for people who ordered from my sons fundraiser but now I am scared that I won’t do anything like I am seeing on here! I know I can manage the rolling the ball but dipping n extreme decorating? Now that I am scared about. Lol. Great job!

  26. oh my goodness cuteness overload! I am so making Frosty pops as my “need to take something awesome to the BF’s parents Christmas party” last year it was snickers cupcakes thanks to Kevin & Amanda.. this year it’s Frosty… you food bloggers are totally saving me :)

  27. Wow what an amazing little things so cute!!!!!

    I will let u all know how it goes it will be at the end of november

  28. Wow there so cute I cant wait to make them!!! :)

  29. I can’t seem to find a store that sells just whit/black confetti sprinkles. Where did you get them?

  30. OMG!! I’m new to this blog, but these are totally amazing cake pops. GO FROSTY POPS!!!

  31. All of the cake pops are adorable. I am trying to make the Hello Kitty cake pops for my grandaughter. I am having trouble with the edible markers. They are not coloring on the white chocolate, any suggestions? HELP!!!

  32. These make me happy just looking at them!

  33. I just found your blog tonight completely at random! I couldn’t be more excited! Though not only me, but my kids as well. The second they saw the Frosty Pops they both screamed, FROSTY!!!!!!! “That’s amazing, I want it!!! and “You have to make this!” I hope they come some what close to what you have made. Your entire site is amazing! Thank you for sharing!

  34. I just made 7 dozen of these for a cookie exchange…!!! My chocolate is not as smooth as the one in the pictures -but it adds some character to the snowman. I do not know how to get the chocolate to be that smooth as they show it…My marker also doesnt seem to want to write on the chocolate so mine wont have a smile…I used mimi M&M;s for eyes..The cake balls have to be cold so they dont fall into the chocolate..It was time taking but they are cute… Thanks for the cute idea !!

  35. I love your cake pops… what a great idea!
    I was wondering how long do they last after you make them? Should I wrap them up in plastic wrap? put them in the fridge? I want to make them 2 days before I need them due to time, etc… how should i store them???

    thanks for your help and wonderful ideas!

  36. These are so cute! I don’t know how you do it!
    I was inspired to make snowman cake pops for this food blog competition, but they didn’t turn out this cute!

  37. Has anyone ever used heated canned frosting to dip their cake pops in? Any other advice would be usefull. I’m a beginner



  38. Can you tell me – us where I can buy the mold or the hat and where you get your candies? I’m near Ottawa Ont. I have been going to Micheal’s crafts store
    I made your reindeer tonite, no where as cut as yours but managed to get something along the same lines, any how.
    I will get my daughter to help me load the pics to my computer and then you can have a gander at them.
    Keep up the awesome work, very try inspiring!!

  39. These cake pops are adorable.!! I have just recently heard of them. Had no idea what they were, so I checked out your sight. They are so cute, i just loved them. can’t wait to get your book and try them out…

  40. Hi! I just wanna tell you I am so in love with your cake pops. It is so adorable and cute.
    I love baking and I really wanna make this and sell them. I really think they can brighten someone’s day…
    I can already think of many ideas and design.
    What do you think?

  41. This is so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. bakerella! you should know someone is using your products pics as their own.!/profile.php?id=1710831249

  43. I have a question, I plan to make these and the reindeer for an upcoming christmas party but It hit me. Why don’t I just use truffles? Buy the Lindoor Truffles and decorate them? It saves me a step! Would it work you think?

  44. my favorite cake pop so far!!

  45. hey..i love your works! im from ecuador guayaquil and u r such a great inspiration for me… i gave girls curses of bakery and cupcakes and my next curse its going to be about cakepops , im learning a lot from u!..thanks for ur page and your creations!

    Fernanda Bruner

  48. These are truly amazing. Takes me back to my childhood:)

  49. OMG! These are the most adorable creations I have ever seen!

  50. They look the yummiest things EVER!!!!!!!!

  51. Hello, love your site – want to try out a few of these cake pops but have no idea what candy melts are (I’m from England) – I don’t think you can get them where I live, what can I use as a substitute that will give me the same smooth finish as candy melts?

  52. I loved these the moment I saw them. I like to try new things so I gave them a try. I posted a pic of mine on my blog and gave reference to your wonderfully cute ones. Thanks so much for sharing!!!

  53. wow bakerella, i can’t believe i’m just stubling upon your site now! i’ve been making cake balls and cake pops in all sorts of flavors, shapes and designs for a few years now after seeing a recipe somewhere (i think allrecipes?)… i never thought of posting a blog about them! all of your treats look adorable! i have been told way too many times to sell my goodies, but once i started looking into that possibility, i realized you need a separate kitchen to get a license for it in nj… not happening! so i decided to look into creating a website/blog featuring my treats, and i stumbled across your blog in the process! so i read through every single post of yours since the beginning- and wow! your experience sounds exciting! i especially wish i had a store like the cakeart one you shop in near me! and those cupcakes you did for the wii giveaway and the garfield ones, and all of them, really.. wow i am blown away! you are so talented and it sounds like you are an inspiration to many people!

  54. these are the cutest!

  55. These look amazing. Just a quick question…How big are these (approx diameter) or what do you recommend for size? Want to make these for my sons b-day party and do not want to make them too big!

  56. So creative and so adorable! Can’t wait to make them!

  57. Bakerella, I think you are my true birth mother! Ok, so you’re not old enough… but you are, at the very least, my idol!
    Just when I think you have reached your creative peak, you post something like this! Just another reason why I live for this site!

  58. I was so delighted to scroll down and see Frosty! It’s an incredible likeness, thanks for sharing your talent!

  59. OMG!!! These look FABULOUS!!!! I just LOVE coming over here to drool all over all your amazing creations!

  60. I am MORE than excited! My son’s Christmas party was cancelled due to snow and I had made the Oreo hat snomen cake pops for that day since I was unable to round up the materials to make the Frosty The Snowan pops… Sigh… We ate them and handed them out to the neighbor kids. Well, the party was rescheduled and I have found everything I need to make the Frosty ones! Thanks to Michaels and my local cake store, Kake Kraft Korner, my son and I just be the hit of the party! Thank you so much Bakerella! You inspire me to go beyond my comfort zone and when I do, I am more than proud!

  61. Oh man. Those put mine to shame, and I thought I did pretty good! Here’s a link to them. I had actually emailed you about what to do for scarves. I ended up using pre-made fondant, which didn’t taste that bad at all and worked pretty well.

  62. So Flippin Cute!

  63. what type of molds did you use for the hats
    and for the gum drops did you have to cut regular size gum drops down to a smaller size?

    wonderful job!!!

  64. These are just so fantastic!!!!! Like truly amazing!!

  65. Ok, you probably already know this but it made my holiday baking/treat-making sooo much easier this year. I found it in a Southern Living recipe…instead of melting your chocolate bark or candy melts in the microwave, you can put them in the crock pot on low for 90 minutes. It’s amazing! Makes dipping cake pops a breeze! It’s also great for making large batches of things like Christmas Crunch because you can just dump all of the other ingredients right into the candy melts/bark.

    I just wanted to share…

  66. These are super cute. Can you give us the name of the candy molds? I want to order them online :o)

  67. I gasped out loud when I Saw Frosty-pops! Amazing work! With awe, from Neala in Australia

  68. These are so adorable!!! I love the Frosty! I tried my hand at snowmen for the holidays too:
    not nearly as cute as yours though! I was able to do your trees! They were so cute!

  69. Let me say how much I love how excited you get about your creations and how you seem so shocked at your talent. Your blog is so much fun! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity.

  70. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these!!! Soo darn cute!

  71. Love, love, love these! You are a genius! Love to try making these!

  72.’re killing me…Not as if they aren’t just so darn cute…but stuffing the had with my favorite candy…you have got to be kidding me…

    don’t know if you read all your messages…BUT, I turn 40 on Valentines Day…wonder what you could come up with for THAT.

    Big fan…wish I had just a teeny bit of your talent.!!

  73. You inspire me, so I finally tried my hand at cake pops last month and did my own variation of snowmen! I used the little candy carrots for carrot cake from the bake store for the noses!! Just an FYI. But your’s of course are wayyyyyyyyy cuter!!

  74. Bakerella,

    Maybe you’ve already answered this problem in a previous post but I couldn’t find it in my searching. I use either the candy melts or almond bark but after the first couple my melted coating gets crumbs in it. Do you have any tips to avoid this? or do you always only make a few when you make them?

    Also, Mine never seem to be as round. Do you hand roll them or use a scooping tool? After I chill them they are always flat on the bottom.


  75. You are so incredible at this it is ridiculous!!! Love these pops!

  76. very cute cake pops!I love them!
    they’re so adorable!
    really great site you have,so keep up the good work!

  77. DIED!!

    I DIED when I saw those Frosty pops.


    I’m not worthy! I’m not worthy!

    Seriously, woman. You are amazing. I’ve decided I don’t want to be Martha Stewart anymore when I grow up. I want to be Bakerella. =o)

  78. WOW! As I scrolled down, I already had thought the first versions were adorable and fantastic, but when I saw the iconic ones….MAN, iconic is right! My jaw dropped! Everything about them is perfect! <3

    Also, have you ever considered actually making a whole body for the snowmen? :D Like 3 separate cake balls, the bottom one would be bigger, middle is smaller…etc. Or maybe not even that, what about cake ball kabobs?! All decorated differently and pretty. Ahhhh, that would be awesome. :) Consider it for me!

  79. My mind is officially blown. Those have to be THE cutest cakepops in the history of all cakepops. Love them!

  80. These are more adorable than I can express. I really love all the detail you put into everything. I was recently given a “pass it along” style blog award. You pass it along to a blog that shows great attitude or gratitude. I put you on my list- it’s in my post today. Thanks so much for all the great inspiration.

  81. Oh. my. goodness. Cuteness personified! I’m just sad that I have no where to bring these “if” I actually decided to attempt them~ Total cuteness… You Rawk sista friend;)

  82. So happy you didn’t post these before Christmas. I would have HAD to make them and was almost too busy to put together what treats I did make. I will plan ahead and I WILL make them next year though.

    Thank you. You are so wonderful for sharing your brilliant ideas with all of us.

  83. hi there! I’m such a big fan of yours!! and I love every single picture you take…I will be very thankful if you could please tell me what program you use to edit them at the end…with those cute fonts and snowflakes, I absolutely adore them!!!
    By the way, I tried once the cake pops and OMG! they’re so delicious! I think I’ll just make them again and again…
    thank you for everything!! greetings from Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico :D

  84. WOW, these are great! I’m going to add them to my holiday baking next year!

  85. OMG! I have been so busy the last month I have not had a chance to look at your site. I looked today hoping to find something with snowmen for my daughter’s snowman bday party this month. Wow! Perfect! You rock!!!

  86. can you do a post for fish shaped cake pops?? i would be forever indebted to you!!

  87. Bravo! Wonderful and creative. I’m in awe over how smooth your dipping is! If you get to reading this comment :) I do have a question. . . I live in the Middle East and can’t seem to find candy melts or bark or baking chocolate or anything other than real chocolate (like up-scale candy bars) and chocolate chips. When I melt the white chocolate it is THICK. Any ideas on how I might make it dip-able? I would love to try some non-brown cake pops :) but until I can solve the not-so-melty-white chocolate chips-problem I am left only with all things brown!
    Can’t wait to see your next creation! Thank you for taking the time to share your talents.

  88. Oreo should thank you for this. I haven’t thought about their cookies in probably a year. Now I want one!

  89. Ohh Bakerella I am in awe and so inspired by you. I love all of your stuff and have attempted many of your projects on my own. My husband suprised ne with a new shiny red kitchenaid for Christmas and I am so excited to try more of your creations. You have inspired to so much that I have started my own baking blog. I hope to one day be as talented as you.

  90. Wow! These are amazing! I tried to make the reindeer cake pops this christmas and they looked NOTHING like yours! You really have an amazing talent!

  91. Oh myt goodness, the frosty cake pops are PERFECT! Love it!

  92. Your talents never cease to amaze me! Thanks for the inspiration! Happy New Year!

  93. Oh my goodness…those are the cutest ever!!! Such a lovely job Bakerella!!
