  • 1 wilton bow fondant mold
  • 1 C cornstarch
  • 1 cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat

Chocolate Cupcake Ingredients

  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix
  • 1 ¼  C of whole milk
  • ½ C unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 16 oz container of chocolate frosting
  • 2 - 14oz bag of Ghirardelli chocolate melting wafers
  • 1 C of your favorite christmas sprinkles
  • 1 silicone cake popsicle mat
  • 1 cookie sheet with a wire rack
  • 18 popsicle sticks
  • 1 disposable piping bag

Instructions

Directions for Red Fondant Bows:

-Dust your hands and the fondant mold with cornstarch
-Work the red fondant to where it becomes soft
-Pinch off about 1 tbsp of the red fondant and mold it into the small size bow
-Remove and place onto the cookie sheet
-Allow to air-dry overnight

Cupcake Directions:

-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake pan with liners
-Using a large bowl, beat together the cake mix, milk, butter, and eggs until combined and smooth
-Fill the cupcake liners ¾ way full
-Bake in the oven for 21 minutes
-Allow it to cool completely
-Once the cupcakes have cooled, remove them from their cupcake liners and crumble them into a large mixing bowl

Making the cakesicle cake dough directions:

-Once all the cupcakes have been crumbles into a moist sand-like texture, scoop in about ¼ - ½ C of the chocolate frosting
-Using either your hands or a rubber spatula, mix in the frosting into the crumbs until a dough-like mixture forms


Decorating directions:
-Remove 36 solid round chocolate melting wafers from the bag and set aside. These will be used to make the ears
-Using the remaining chocolate in the wafer bags, pour into a large bowl
-Using a microwave, melt the chocolate in 30-second increments, mixing after each time to ensure smooth melted chocolate
-Once the chocolate is melted, spoon about 1-2 tbsp of the melted
chocolate into the cakesicle molds
-Move the cakesicle mold around to ensure that the sides are coated in the chocolate
-Carefully push in the popsicle stick into the bottom of the cakesicle mold
-Place the mold into the fridge for about 10 minutes
-Once the chocolate is set, remove it from the fridge
-Take about 1-2 tbsp of the cake mixture and carefully press into the mold, make sure the side of the chocolate does not break
-Remelt the chocolate used to coat the cakesicle mold
-Once the chocolate is remelted, spoon on about 1-2 tbsp of the
chocolate onto the top of the cake mixture into the mold
-Place mold back into the fridge for another 30 minutes
-Carefully remove the cakesicle from the mold
-Place onto the wire rack
-Repeat steps with remaining cake dough

Decorating Mickey and Minnie Directions :

-Using the remaining melted chocolate, spoon it into a piping bag
-Carefully cut the bottom off of the chocolate rounds that were set aside earlier. You will want the bottom of the chocolate rounds to be flat in order to stick to the sides of the cakesicle
-Cut the tip off the piping bag. Carefully pipe a line of melted chocolate onto the smooth bottom of the chocolate round
-Carefully place the chocolate round onto the side of the cakesicle. Hold it there for about 30 seconds or more to make sure the round doesn't fall
-Repeat steps to all of the cakesicles made
-Once that is completed, drizzle lines of chocolate onto the cakesicles
-Sprinkle some Christmas sprinkles onto the chocolate lines
-Carefully remove the bows from the cookie sheets and place them in the center of half of the cakesicles

Allow the chocolate to set before enjoying it!

Cakesicle sticks, to me seem a lot easier to make than cake balls. We’ll see though because I’ll be trying to bake more. Who knows, maybe I’ll post a cake ball recipe! Until then, have you checked out my hot cocoa bombs recipe?
