Gingerbread and Chocolate Cake Pops You can cheat with this recipe, buy a cake and some frosting if you are short on time! Then get the kids to work to make them, so much fun!

Ingredients

  • 1 x Ginger cake (small-4 x 6 inches)
  • 3 – 4 tbsp ready made vanilla icing / frosting
  • 300g dark chocolate
  • cake pop sticks
  • gold sprinkles
  • tray

Instructions

  1. Step 1
  2. Crumble the ginger cake into a bowl using your finger tips until you have fine crumbs
  3. Add the vanilla icing and mix together, I prefer to use my hands to do this so you can feel it sticking together.
  4. Just think of the icing as glue to stick the cake crumbs together
  5. Roll the mixture into small balls using your hands
  6. I use approx a big tablespoon of the cake mixture for each ball

 

  1. Step 2
  2. Heat the chocolate gently over a pan of simmering water
  3. Use a heat proof bowl and make sure the water does not hit the bottom of bowl or the chocolate might burn
  4. Once it’s all nearly melted turn the heat off and stir
  5. Take one of the cake pop sticks, dip into the chocolate and then stick it in the cake ball
  6. Do this with all the balls
  7. Place on a tray and put into the freezer for 30 minutes
  8. The purpose of this step is to use the chocolate to help the cake ball stick to the stick
  9. Keep chocolate and pan to one side as you’ll need to make it warm again soon

 

  1. Step 3
  2. Re heat the chocolate gently, so it’s runny and smooth
  3. Take out the cake pops from the freezer, dip in the chocolate so it’s all covered
  4. Add sprinkles and then stick cake pops in either a polystyrene or an egg box until the chocolate turns hard.
  5. I put mine back in the fridge to set
  6. Watch out for the drips of chocolate, but the good thing is, as they are very cold the chocolate sets quickly
