Cake pops are a hit with kids any time of the year, but these festively decorated gems also add a sophisticated touch to your holiday table. You'll need 16 lollipop sticks – use them also to punch holes in a block of foam for a place to stand the cake pops once you get them on the stick and begin to decorate.

Ingredients

  • 5 1/2 cups vanilla wafers (about 12 oz/340 g)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons light-coloured corn syrup
  • 1 1/4 cup white chocolate coating wafers
  • 1 1/4 cup green chocolate coating wafers
  • 1 1/4 cup red chocolate coating wafers
  • sugars
  • Silver dragée
  • sprinkles

Method

In food processor, pulse wafers with sugar until in fine crumbs. Transfer to bowl. Stir in apple juice and corn syrup. Shape by 2 tbsp into 16 balls, washing and drying hands when beginning to stick. Refrigerate on parchment paper–lined plate for 30 minutes.

In microwaveable bowl, microwave white coating wafers on medium-high, 10 seconds at a time and stirring each time, until smooth, about 40 seconds. Dip end of each lollipop stick into melted wafers; insert halfway into cake ball. Stand in foam block or cake pop stand. If cake pops soften, refrigerate for 15 minutes.

In separate microwaveable bowls, melt green and red coating wafers. Dip cake pops into desired colours to coat, letting excess drip back into bowl. Sprinkle with decorations, if desired. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.

Pipe remaining chocolate onto pops if desired; dip into sprinkles, dragées or coarse sugar (if using).
