1 13×9 inch red velvet cake
1 16-ounce container of cream cheese frosting (you won’t use it all)
Approximately 48 Gushers candies (available near the fruit roll-ups and fruit snacks)
About 4 dozen lollipop sticks
Approximately 4 cups white candy melts
Approximately 1/2 cup red candy melts
Approximately 48 gummi Lifesavers candies
Approximately 48 mini M&M candies
1. Prepare the cake pops according to the step by step directions found HERE. Insert a Gusher candy into the center of each ball as you roll.
2. Dip each frozen cake pop into melted white candy melts. Adhere a gummi Lifesaver to the pop while the white candy is still soft. Stand the pops upright in a piece of styrofoam until the candy has hardened.
3. Place a small amount of the melted white candy into a small baggie. Cut off the tip of one of the corners of the baggie. Use the baggie to squeeze a bit of candy “glue” into the center of each gummi lifesaver. Place a mini M&M into the candy glue. Allow to dry.
4. Melt the red candy melts according to package directions. Use a toothpick or fine-tip paint brush to give the eyeballs a bloodshot appearance. Store at room temperature for a few days.
