I love Bakerella’s puppy pops and thought they would be so cute for Valentine’s Day, especially paired with a heart and a “puppy love” cookie valentine. Of course I opted to make mine with my Krispy Pop base instead and I thought a heart for the nose was suiting for the holiday. I only had butter rum life savers on hand but I think a red collar would have been perfect! : )
For the puppies:
Krispy Pops, made in balls
Peanut Butter candy coating
Large heart sprinkles
Dip krispy pop in candy coating (or desired color)
Stand in styrofoam to let coating set up.
Make the ears. Melt chocolate and use either a parchment funnel or squeeze bottle to draw teardrops on the inside of plastic spoons. (To make a funnel, curl one short side of a parchment rectangle in to the middle. Wrap other short end around, tape seam on outside if needed.)
(Make sure hole is small in the bottom) Stand up in a cup or glass and fill with melted chocolate.
After chocolate has set, the ears should pop out easily.
Using a small amount of melted PB candy coating as glue, place an ear on either side of the face, and glue on a large heart for the nose and a life saver for the collar.
Use the chocolate funnel or a food safe marker to make the eyes and mouth.
For the Hearts:
Krispy Pops, made in heart shapes
Red candy coating
Dip heart shaped Krispy Pops in melted red candy coating and gently tap off excess.
Sprinkle with sprinkles, pop rocks, sanding sugar, or leave plain.
Stand in styrofoam to set up.
