Yes, I know!  I am making more Swiss Roll Pops but Dang, they are so very easy to do!  A few ingredients and you are set to make some children SMILE!

Skull Pops

package of Swiss Rolls
almond bark
mini and regular chocolate chips
lollipop or pretzel sticks
Makes 16 Swiss Roll Pops

Unwrap and put swiss rolls in bowl.

Break apart with a fork.

Roll into a ball and squeeze the bottom in slightly to make a face shape.

Melt almond bark according to directions.
Dip stick in candy and insert in skull.
Put in freezer for 5-10 minutes.
Let thaw for a minute or so. 
Warm up candy again if needed for 10-15 seconds in microwave.
Dip skull in candy, add mini chips for eyes and large for mouth.

Set in Styrofoam or a foam plate atop an empty container.  You will have to hold until dry to do this one.  
Let dry completely and wrap.  
One's a little tired.  ;D  <3 and Hugs!

More Pops...Candy (Snickers)

Okay...I am totally wanting to make more and more "Pops"  Doesn't matter what it is...I want to try it on a stick covered in candy!

Today, I covered candy in candy!  I know, I always go overboard but hey...someone has to do it and my boys like it as a once in a while treat.  ;D

I also made pops with mini packaged cakes.  Both are so easy to do.  ;D

I don't want to be perfect...Nothing concentrical here.  I like the surprise of not being precise..the unknown shapes turn out to be the prettiest to me.  ;D

Candy...I used small Snickers
Lollipop Sticks or Small Pretzel Sticks
Candy Melts

Squish candy together to make a circle, square, pumpkin, ghost, heart...You get the idea.
Melt candy melts according to directions, I used a microwave safe glass.
Dip lollipop or pretzel stick in melted candy and insert in candy form.
Put in freezer for 10 minutes.
Take out and let sit for a few minutes to take the chill off.
Reheat melted candy, 5-10 seconds do not overheat, if needed, in microwave safe glass.  I dipped and twirled as I was taking the candy pop out.  This made it look like a flower.  <3

I Made Cake Pops with Swiss Rolls!

Out of time to make Cake Pops?  Try using Swiss Rolls.  I have never made cake pops before and the thought of baking a cake, tearing it all apart, adding frosting and then mixing it up again was more than I have time to do. 

I have an over abundance of sweets, I’ll tell y’all about this later, so I decided to try making cake pops with swiss rolls.  Super easy!  Even I can make them.  Granted, I haven't  used candy melts this way so you will have to forgive the looks.

Explore with other boxed treats....cupcakes, mini cakes anything with icing and/or filling should work.  Even bags of little donuts..if too dry, add a little canned icing.

Box of Swiss Rolls…6 packages of 2 in each box
(I made three small cake pops from each package)
candy melts
oil to thin candy melts
lollipop sticks

Smash Swiss Rolls with a fork.

Roll into your desired shape.
Freeze 10 minutes or so.
While freezing…melt candy melts according to directions.

Take pops out of freeze, dip lollipop stick in melted candy (I had to add oil to make it thin enough to dip) insert in swiss roll pop.
Sorry about the is acting up and this is the only one that was visible.

Place in freezer for 10 minutes to set candy on stick.
Remove from freezer and dip in candy.  Twice if needed.
I held the pops.. 1 minute or so to set candy.
Place in Styrofoam ball, square or rectangle.
I used an empty coffee container with a foam plate on top until I could arrange them.
