Santa Is Coming Down Your Chimney Tonight … Pops!

To post or not to post another Christmas idea … it’s been my dilemma!  I decided that this project is so easy … thought you might appreciate it 😉

Santa is coming down your chimney tonight pops

I’m going to make short and sweet … Christmas is around the corner!

This is what you will need to make 8 pops …

P1030477 ed

  • Rice Krispie Treats (or you could make your own)
  • Vanilla CandiQuik (you will use about 1/2 package)
  • 1 box Hot Tamales
  • 8 sticks
  • 8 foil wrapped Santa chocolate (from SweetWorks)
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows (oops! forgot photo)

santa chimney pop instructions

  1. Line a tray with parchment or wax paper.  Melt CandiQuik according to package directions.  Dip the tip of the stick in melted candy and insert into Rice Krispie Treat.
  2. Place 5 or 6 mini marshmallows along top edge and smash a little to make snow.  Use Hot Tamales to make bricks on chimney and press a little.  If you are not a fan of Hot Tamales, I saw Mike & Ike’s in holiday colors or use red licorice pieces.
  3. Put about 1/2 cup melted candy in squeeze bottle or pastry bag.  This will be the mortar for the bricks.  Fill the areas between the bricks.
  4. Attach Santa to the stick.  I used just a dot of glue (from a glue gun) on the foil.  Tape may be another option.
  5. Dip the bottom of the Rice Krispie Treat in melted candy and stand on prepared tray.  Let candy harden at room temperature or chill for a few minutes.

  1. Ah, these are adorable. So glad that you had decided to post once again. Thank you.
    Wishing you and your family a Very Merry Christmas


  2. You’re so inventive. Santa coming down the chimney – very clever. For the Floridians without a chimney, this is perfect. All done with pre-made candy – genius. We have a brick chimney, so these will be cute coming from us. Thanks.

    South Florida (where it’s gonna be 86 today)
