Red Velvet Treat Pops

Red Velvet Treat Pops

I was so excited when I found these Wilton treat pop containers on the after Christmas clearance rack at ShopKo for 50% off!  I’d been wanting some so I could experiment with making treat pops but didn’t want to pay full price.  Last night our group was in charge of the activity for Young Women so we did “speed friending”, wrote letters to the missionaries and then we ate these treat pops!  Here’s how I made them:

1  I mixed up a box of Betty Crocker Red Velvet cake mix according to the package directions and baked them in my mini muffin pans to make mini cupcakes.  (It made almost 4 dozen mini cupcakes.)

2  Next, I mixed up a batch of my favorite buttercream icing which I loaded into a pastry bag fitted with a #2D tip.

3  Then I started layering – a mini cupcake, a swirl of icing, another mini cupcake, another swirl of icing topped with some pink, red and heart shaped sprinkles.

I only had 20 treat pop containers so here’s what I did with the rest of the cupcakes and icing using disposable mini shot glasses:

Cute, easy, fun and yummy!
