This month we’re joining a special series at So You Call Yourself a Homeschooler called, “A Goodie a Day Until Christmas.” Instead of sharing a specific recipe for this series, we wanted to share with you a concept that can be adapted in many ways for Christmas sweet treats that you can give as gifts or use at parties: Festive cake pops!


Our favorite Christmas cake pops are Peppermint Chocolate Cake Pops. Our family LOVES chocolate, and during the Christmas season, we love adding peppermint to our hot chocolate, cookies, ice cream, brownies, and cake. Chocolate and peppermint are such a festive pair, and peppermint chocolate cake pops are an easy project that creates beautiful, gift-worthy results.
