The holiday season is in full swing now and my kids are so excited. When I was asked to sample the new Hostess Apple Cinnamon Donettes, I thought it was the perfect excuse to throw a mini welcome to the holidays party for my kiddos. So I made a batch of my Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Cider and made a few of the Apple Cinnamon Donettes into these cute little reindeer pops and surprised them after school.
Though not nearly as cute, these were inspired by Bakerella's Reindeer Cake Pops. Mine look slightly more concerned than hers do, but I love that you can use just a few things to create a special memory.
If you want to make something similar, here is what you will need.
Paper Straws or lollipop sticks
Red Peanut Candies
Wooden skewer or toothpick
Hostess Apple Cinnamon Donettes
Step 1: Prepare royal icing according to directions and fill a plastic storage bag. Snip one small corner off the bag.
Step 2: Insert straw into Donette. Leave Donette laying flat while you work.
Step 3: Use skewer to poke holes for eyes. Fill holes with royal icing and stick candy eyes on.
Step 3: Fill center of Donette with royal icing and place red candy inside.
Step 4: Carefully cut pretzels in half with serrated knife and push into sides of Donette to create antlers.
Step 5: Let icing dry and serve.
