If you’re running late for a party and you need to whip up a sweet treat, I’ve got the article for you. I prepared some cute desserts to share with friends.

Snowmen Cake Pops

Prepare a cake of your choice, I bought a premade gingerbread cake, and tear it to shreds. Crumble the cake and place the crumbs into a large bowl. Mix frosting in until the cake is soft and clay-like. Create small balls of mixture for heads and larger balls for bodies. Place these balls on wax paper in the fridge to set. After they’ve set, slide one body and one head onto a skewer, repeat for each pop. Dip these pops in melted chocolate. Put them back in the fridge to set. Once they have set use orange gel frosting to draw a carrot nose and black gel frosting to draw eyes and buttons.

Chocolate Menorah

Cut a king size chocolate bar length-wise. Use melted chocolate to attach tootsie rolls like candles. You will need four on the left, four on the right, and mold the ninth candle so that it is a bit longer and place it in the middle. Use the melted chocolate to attach candy corn to each tootsie roll like a flame.

Separate a box of oreos into two bowls. One bowl is for the cookie part, the other is for the cream. Crush the cookies into dust. Microwave the cream for 30 seconds. Mix the cream with cream cheese and pour it into the cookie crumbs. Mix until it forms a paste. Roll the paste into small balls and let them set on wax paper in the fridge. Mix melted white chocolate with cream cheese. Once the oreo balls have set dip them in the frosting. Let them set for another thirty minutes and your treats are ready!
