- 1/2 an iced chocolate mud cake
- 12 cake pop sticks (we get ours from the supermarket)
- 1/4 cup of chocolate fudge frosting
- 100g milk chocolate melts, melted
- 200g white chocolate melts, melted
- 12 icing flowers for decorating, if desired
- Pink sprinkles for decorating, if desired
Chocolate cake doesn't last long around our houses, but if you happen to have some leftover cake, we have the perfect idea for you.....cake pops! Tip: instead of buying cake, use our favourite chocolate cake recipe for an extra delicious result.
Using your hands, roughly break up cake, including icing, into small pieces and place in alarge bowl. Continue breaking cake into smaller pieces until finely crumbled. Add frosting. Mix with a wooden spoon until combined.
Divide mixture evenly into 12 portions. Roll each portion into a smooth ball. Place on a baking paper-lined tray.
Meanwhile, transfer milk chocolate to aheatproof microwave-safe mug. Microwave on medium for 1 minute or until smooth (we recommend microwaving chocolate for 30 seconds at a time, stirring then doing another 30 seconds - it can be very easy to overcook!).
Dip 2cm of 1 end of each lollipop stick into melted chocolate. Push 1 lollipop stick halfway into each cake ball. Return to tray and freeze for 30 minutes or until set.
Meanwhile, transfer white chocolate to a heatproof microwave-safe mug. Microwave on medium for 1 minute or until smooth.
Dip 1 cake into melted chocolate. Rock backwards and forwards until cake is fully coated (don't rotate the stick or stir the chocolate as this can cause crumbs to break off into the chocolate). Pull stick up and out of the chocolate, gently tapping the stick on the side of mug to drain excess chocolate and remove any air bubbles.
Place cake (stick upwards) onto tray. Working quickly, position icing flower and sprinkles on cake. Repeat with remaining cake, chocolate, flowers and sprinkles. Stand for 10 minutes or until set. Serve and enjoy!
