In this special Halloween celebration post, we will take you through a step-by-step guide on how to make these spooky cake pops that are sure to impress your guests. So, here we go!
Ingredients You’ll Need
To make these Halloween cake pops, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 100g/4oz Madeira cake
- 100g chocolate sandwich cookies
- 100g bar milk chocolate, melted
- 200g bar white chocolate, melted
- A few sugar-coated chocolate beans and icing pens, to decorate
- 10 wooden skewers
- ½ pumpkin or use butternut squash
Step 1: Prepare the Cake Pop Mixture
To start, break the Madeira cake and chocolate sandwich cookies into small pieces. You can try using a food processor to make the process easier. Once broken down, pour in the melted milk chocolate and blend the mixture until it is well combined.
Step 2: Shape and Chill the Cake Balls
Transfer the mixture into a bowl and use your hands to roll it into approximately 10 walnut-sized balls. Place the cake balls on a baking sheet and chill them in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until they are firm to the touch.
Step 3: Assemble the Cake Pops
Once the cake balls are chilled, it’s time to assemble the cake pops. Insert a wooden skewer into each cake ball, ensuring it is secure. Next, melt the white chocolate and carefully spoon it over the cake balls, ensuring that they are completely covered.
Step 4: Decorate the Cake Pops
To add a festive touch to your Halloween cake pops, it’s time to get creative with the decorations. While the white chocolate is still wet, place a sugar-coated chocolate bean on the surface of each cake pop to create an eyeball effect. You can use icing pens to draw a pupil on each chocolate bean and wiggly red veins to make the eyeballs even spookier.
Step 5: Display and Serve
To display your Halloween cake pops, use a small pumpkin or butternut squash. Simply deseed the pumpkin or squash and place the skewered cake pops into it, allowing them to stand upright. This not only adds a festive touch to your presentation but also makes it easy for your guests to grab a cake pop.
Tips and Tricks for Perfect Halloween Cake Pops
- If you don’t have Madeira cake, you can substitute any other type of sponge cake.
- To make the cake pop more flavorful, you can add a few drops of vanilla extract or your favourite flavouring to the cake mixture.
- If you’re short on time, you can use store-bought cake mix and pre-made frosting instead of making everything from scratch.
- Get creative with your decorations! You can use different colours of melted chocolate, sprinkles, or edible glitter to make your cake pop even more eye-catching.
- If you’re serving the cake pops at a party, consider making them a day in advance and storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This will allow the flavours to meld together and make the cake pops even more delicious.
