Cake Pops

Scary ! I lost my Internet connection sometime yesterday morning :(( boo hoo ! And ....yes I just got it back up NOW! I felt the world had banished me. Halloweenish feeling indeed. Imagine 24hrs plus without Internet. Am glad, I had to go out and get some milk - got me distracted and by the time I was home, (yuppie!) I could see Google's haunted house dancing on screen !!

Am impatient to share the cake pops with you, so even though I have a lot to say, am going to go straight to the recipe...!!

2 -3 cups crumbled cake ( any flavour)

1-2 tbsp lemon curd, any jam, or icing - I used lemon curd

1 cup chocolate sauce or  melted chocolate chips (I used King's cupboard bittersweet chocolate sauce)

Sliced almond 18

In a large bowl, crumble half of a 13x9-inch cake with the hands (use gloves if you can't stand mess) until no large chunks remain. Add lemon curd and mix with fingers until well combined. Using a cookie scoop, portion into 18 balls. Roll between the hands until round and smooth. Place on parchment-lined sheet pan and freeze until no longer sticky, but not rock hard, about 1 hour.

Melt chocolate. Dip lollipop stick ends into melted chocolate and insert into cake pops. Now dip the cake pops into melted  chocolate.  Place back on parchment-lined tray and freeze for 1 hour to set the stick in the pop.

Add small drop of chocolate with a toothpick on sliced almond and add it as eyes. 

So cute !! Loved making this, such a fun dessert. Hope you guys like it too.  Print Friendly and PDF
