A fun recipe ideal for kids!
- 350 grams chocolate cake, blitzed in food processor
- 175 grams milk chocolate broken into pieces
- 400 grams dark chocolate broken into pieces
- assorted sprinkles, to decorate
Line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Place the milk chocolate in a heat proof bowl and set over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring occasionally just until melted.
Put the cake crumbs into the melted chocolate, and stir until well mixed. Use your hands to roll the mixture into balls each about as large as a golf ball. Insert a lollipop stick into each ball, place on lined baking sheet and leave in the fridge for about 20 minutes to firm up.
For the chocolate coating: Place the dark chocolate in a heat proof bowl and set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally just until melted. Remove from the heat.
Remove the cake pops from the fridge, then dip each one into the chocolate coating and either insert upright into a polystyrene block or place back on the lined baking sheet.
Place somewhere cool, but not the fridge, and leave for 20-30 minutes or just until the chocolate has set. Before the coating sets on the cake pops, you can roll them in sprinkles.
