    Mmmm..cake pops...

    I have found my new favorite thing...cake pops!!!

    When I was asked to make some for a morning tea I couldn't be happier.

    So, i baked a mud cake, cooled it down, and then blitzed the whole thing in a food processor till it had crumbled.

    Then I added a heap of chocolate ganache ( and a drop of peppermint essence), and mixed it all together.
    Next, I rolled them into 15 gram balls and popped them in the fridge to firm up.

     


    Meanwhile, I melted some chocolate, and added a little copha to thin it down. (candy melts work well here to...but are a lot more expensive)

    Then we dip the end of the lollypop stick into some chocolate and push about halfway into our ball, being very very straight, as even the slightest lean will spoil the effect...



    Pop back in the fridge and let set again.

    Once set, dip them in the melted chocolate mix, drip off excess, then push into styrofoam box.



    Let them set again,,,then time to decorate!



    It's a little time-comsuming, and a little delicate, but definately worth the effort!!!
