Cake Pops

 

Cake pops !!!!!

My babies requested me for cake pops today with their innocent faces I couldn’t say no. Although I wasn’t prepared for it but still made it. I make them and they look marvellous. Kids were stunned and so was i. Very easy and if you don’t want to buy cake pop sticks then use toothpicks…..that’s what I did !!

Ingredients:
1 cake mix or sponge cake
2 bars milk chocolate
1 white chocolate bar
Sugar strands to decorate
Colourful coconut to decorate

Method:
Bake a sponge cake or a chocolate cake and leave aside to cool.
Or buy a cake mix and bake the cake following the instructions.
Once cool break the cake in a bowl to small crumbs. In a glass bowl over boiling water melt one bar of milk chocolate and pour in the cake mixture and mix well to combine.
Make small balls and place on a cake pop sticks (I used toothpicks as I had no sticks) and place in a fridge for 1 hour. Melt white and milk chocolate separately and pour in a small bowls or small glass and leave aside to cool. Dip the cake pops in the chocolate you prefer the white or milk, then sprinkle with decorations of your choice and place on a tray lined with foil or cling film and leave in the fridge for 30-40mins until set.
Enjoy !!!!
