The last thing on your to-do list most likely involves cooking. Whether you dread time in the kitchen or relish it, we have a couple quick and easy dessert recipes that will be sure to have your mouth watering. Check them out!

Snowman Cake Pops

Cake on a stick?! Shaped like a snowman?!?! These mini snowmen are the perfect holiday treat for any party, and the ingredients are probably already lying around your house. Here’s what you need to make 30 cake pops, courtesy of 52 Kitchen Adventures (adjust as necessary):

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, soft
  • 1 1/4 cups milk, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • Vanilla frosting
  • 1 bag of white chocolate chips
  • 6″ lollipop sticks
  • Pretzel rods, broken into thirds
  • Black edible ink pen
  • Chocolate covered sunflower seeds

The directions for these delicious holiday treats are a little on the lengthy side, but we promise they are easy and fun to make with your kids. The whole process should add up to about an hour total – depending on how long you take to perfect your miniature snowman’s buttons, of course!

1. Take the standard first steps: Grease the pan, preheat the oven to 350 F – you know the drill.

2. While you wait, grab a big mixing bowl. Combine the sugar, flour, baking powder and salt, and start mixing.

3. Then comes the butter, milk and vanilla. Take the butter first and mix it in slowly at a low speed. Combine the milk and vanilla in a small bowl and add it into the mix.

4. Take the eggs and add them one at a time while still mixing. Then pour the batter into the pan, and let the cake cook for around 27 minutes.

5. Once the cake is ready resist the urge to start eating immediately and cut it into 6 pieces.

6. Here’s the fun part: Use your hands to crumble each piece into a large bowl.

7. Once you have demolished the cake pieces, add a generous portion of vanilla frosting to the bowl and mix.

8. Take your new creation and roll it into 60 balls. Once you’ve finished place them on a tray and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

9. While you wait for your cake balls to solidify, throw your white chocolate into a bowl and microwave until they are liquefied. Make sure to stir the melted product to prevent any lumps.

10. Once you have removed the cake balls from the freezer take two in your hand at a time and position them on your lollipop sticks. Then dip the cake balls into the melted white chips and remove quickly.

11. Immediately after dipping place the pop over a cup to let the excess drip off.  Then place the pops on a wax paper sheet. Push two pretzel sticks into the cake as the arms and a chocolate-covered sunflower seed into the middle of the top ball as the nose.

12. Once the chocolate has hardened, use the edible ink to draw the rest of your tasty friend!

13. Enjoy!

Rice Krispie Tree Wreaths

We know the snowman cake pops take some work, but come on, we couldn’t resist. You’ll understand once you take a bite. For those of you in a time crunch, these rice krispie wreaths are the perfect treat. They only take ten minutes to make, and they are undeniably tasty and adorable. What more could you ask for? Group Recipes broke down the ingredients and step-by-step instructions for anyone looking to make an instant holiday classic in a hurry.

  • 3 tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 1 package (10 oz. or about 40) regular marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon green food coloring
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies®
  • Red cinnamon candies
  • Prepared frosting

1. Start the process by melting your margarine in a sauce pan over some low heat, add marshmallows in after the margarine is liquefied and stir the mix until they are fully melted.

2. Remove the pan from heat and add in your green food coloring.

3. Take your measured cup of rice krispies and add it into the melted mix. Stir the new combination until all of the krispies are well-coated.

4. Let the mix cool a bit, and then measure out ¼ portions of the mixture on a tray.

5. Brush your fingertips with a little bit of butter and take the portions, quickly shaping them into the forms of wreaths.

6. Use your frosting to dot the back of the red cinnamon candies and place them around the wreath. Then add a frosted bow to the top of your creation.

7. Let the new treats cool and enjoy!
