Not-So-Scary Mummy Pops Halloween Recipe
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: nil
- ½ Madeira cake (Madeira cake is sold at Woolworths!)
- 200g dark chocolate melts
- ½ cup chocolate sprinkles
- 100g white chocolate melts
- Paddle pop sticks and candy eyes, to decorate
- Take the ready-made Madeira cake and cut it into four slices. From those four slices, make two 6cm discs out of each slice using a biscuit cutter.
- Insert a paddle pop stick into each of the eight cake discs and place them on a tray. Freeze them until firm.
- Place the dark chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and using the microwave, melt the dark chocolate. Heat on High power for 20 seconds, stir with a metal spoon and place back in the microwave. Repeat until the chocolate is smooth, being careful not to overheat it.
- Using a spoon, cover the frozen cake with the melted chocolate and working quickly, add the sprinkling of chocolate sprinkles so that they stick to the dark chocolate coating. So sweet!
- Place the white chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and using the microwave, melt the chocolate. Heat on High power for 20 seconds, stir with a metal spoon and place back in the microwave. Repeat until the chocolate is smooth, being careful not to overheat it.
- Load the melted white chocolate into a piping bag or zip-lock-bag and cutting a fine tip, pipe the chocolate onto the cake pops to make the lines look as though they are mummy bandages. Use the remaining white chocolate to sick the candy eyes on. SO CUTE!
