Oink Oink! I know there's fruit hidden in there somewhere, and fruit is pretty good for you right? I think it's a good plan to hide it in a bright candy coating and tell the kiddos that it's nothing more than a sugary treat.
I think the very best thing about these cake pops is the rosy cheeks on the snowmen. Who doesn't get a little flushed when they spend any time outside in the snow? It makes me feel all cozy and festive. I need to go get some hot cocoa now.
Brownies are pretty exciting on their own, then you put them on a stick and everybody gets all jazzed, then you dip them in colored candy and it gets kind of swoony in here and THEN you come out with all sorts of sprinkles and I'm pretty certain we've lost several to a case of the vapors.
When I was a kid my dad always used to try to get me to eat squash by saying "it's just like candy!" which of course is a lie and irrelevant since I've never had a huge sweet tooth. Also, squash is still nasty, sorry dad!
Now if I had been a pain about fruit, this could have done the trick for sure. I love apples but still, even as an adult I have a hard time eating all the fruit I should. Maybe my husband will carve hearts in them for me.
