Mickey Reindeer Cake Pops

Have you thought about simplifying Christmas? What I mean is to have a holiday season without the stress, without going all out on decorations, events, and gifts. Consider celebrating a much simpler Christmas this year.

By scaling back and focusing on the more spiritual side of this holiday, you just might find more joy this season. As an added bonus, when you keep things simple, you have a lot more time to enjoy everything this special time of the year has to offer.

How to Make Mickey Cake Pops

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Following the back of the cake box directions, prepare cupcakes as directed.

Fill cupcake liners 3/4 of the way and bake for 21 minutes. Once baked, place onto a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from cupcake pan and continue to cool until completely cool.

In a large bowl, remove cupcake liners and place cupcakes into the bowl, about 5 cupcakes at a time. Using your hands, crumble up the cupcakes into fine crumbs.

Mix in 1 1/2 spoonful of frosting until combined. Your cupcake mixture should resemble cookie dough texture.

Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, scoop mixture into your hands and roll into a ball. Mix in 1 package of Ghirardelli chocolate, pair up 2 wafers with each cake ball for the ears.

Put a wafer into each corner of the cake balls where ears would go. Repeat steps with remaining cupcakes and chocolate wafers. Place onto cookie sheet fitted with the parchment paper. When done, place into the freezer for overnight.

In a double boiler, melt the second bag of milk chocolate wafers. Once chocolate is melted, take cake balls out of freezer. Carefully peel off a cake ball off the parchment paper.

Dip the whole cake ball into the chocolate. Very lightly shake off excess chocolate and then place back onto the cookie sheet.

Finally, Place two antlers into the top part of the head on the corner of the ears. Carefully place a red M&M into the center of the cake ball for the nose.

Let dry for for 30 minutes before enjoying!
