Gingerbread Jingle

Decorate push-up pops by hot gluing a large jingle bell to the top of the container and wrapping holiday ribbon around the push-up pop.

1/3 cup butter, melted

1/3 cup light brown sugar

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup molasses

2 eggs, room temperature

1/2 cup milk

1 (8-ounce) container sour cream

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon, plus more for garnish

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix together the melted butter, sugars, molasses, eggs, milk, and sour cream.

In a separate mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mixing well. Bake for 20 minutes in a greased jelly roll pan. Cool slightly and cut into circles using the open end of a push-up pop mold.

To make cream cheese frosting, beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla with an electric mixer until well blended. Add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, and continue to blend well. Place one gingerbread circle in the bottom of a push-up pop mold and top with a swirl of cream cheese frosting. Then add another gingerbread circle and end with a swirl of frosting. Garnish with a dash of cinnamon.

    Loved every recipe!

    I have definitely noticed the Push-Up Pop craze and have enjoyed seeing all of the different ways they could be used; I’ve even devoted one of my Pinterest boards to this delightful treat. I was excited to have the opportunity to review Courtney Dial Whitmore’s book, Push-up Pops. Courtney runs the website, Pizzazzerie, which is chock full of all kinds of wonderful ideas for parties, and she is certainly well qualified to write the book on this party favorite.

    The new Push-up Pops are based on the frozen treat popular for decades with kids. I loved how they looked, but I assumed they would be tricky to make. Actually, they are very easy to make and really don’t take any expertise at all. You even use the push up container as a cookie cutter to cut out the pieces of cake and a plastic bag can be used in place of a pastry bag. The book is separated into four categories of Push-up Pops, including Cake (layers of cake and frosting) Pie (mostly layers of cookies and pie filling), Frozen, and Cookies and Candy varieties. Each recipe has the instructions on one page and a full page photo on the other, which really spotlights every scrumptious creation.

    She also has ideas for themed parties and how to decorate the push up containers for different events. The stunning watermelon Push-up Pops are just three layers of ice cream/sorbet/sherbet with some mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top, but would be the hit of any summer get-together. I think that children would just love the Campfire S’mores Push-up Pops, with layers of graham cracker crumbs, marshmallow fluff and chocolate frosting — yum! I adored every single recipe and one of my very favorites was the Wedding Cake Push-up Pops, so gorgeous!! They used a white almond flavored cake and frosting and suggest decorating them with a sticker of the couple’s monogram. Those would be so fun and perfect for a wedding reception, shower, or rehearsal. Excellent book!
