Santa’s Suit

Santa's Suit Pops@The Seven Year Cottage

An exquisite red suit, how it covered the belly…

“That shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly!”

Santa’s Suit Pops

  • Oreo Cakesters
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Red gel food coloring
  • 1/2c. white chocolate chips
  • Gum Drops
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Styrofoam rectangle
  • Granulated sugar
  • Wax paper

Insert a lollipop stick into the cream-filled layer of each Oreo Cakester.  Lay flat on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and transfer to the freezer for at least twenty minutes.

Make a buckle template (1 3/8″ x 1 1/4″) from an index card or heavy paper.

Pour 1-2 tablespoons of granulated sugar onto a sheet of wax paper.  Place a yellow gumdrop in the center of sugar.  Pour a tad more sugar over candy and top with a second sheet of wax paper. 

Roll gumdrop fairly flat.  Using the paper template as a guide, carefully cut buckles from flattened yellow gumdrops with a paring knife.

For belts, roll 2-3 black gumdrops together in the same manner, then cut into strips 1/2″ wide with a clean pair of kitchen shears.  Snip the long black strips into shorter pieces approximately 2 3/8″ in length.  Round belt ends slightly.

If you’re having a hard time rolling gumdrops, microwave for no more than five seconds, then try again.

In a two-cup measuring glass, tint frosting with the red gel food coloring.  Microwave for 10-15 seconds, or until it reaches the consistency of melted chocolate.  Stir well.

Remove Cakester pops from the freezer one at a time, dipping each into the warm frosting mixture.  Allow excess to drain back into the measuring cup before inverting.  Use foam base to keep pops upright while drying.

Allow red coating to set up, this will take a few hours.  Melt white chocolate chips and use to adhere gumdrop belts and buckles to Santa bellies.

Serve at your next Christmas gathering and enjoy!
