Chocolate Cake Pops

BM #77 Week 4 Day 1 - 

This week I shall post some bookmarked recipes which my family loved.

This post was possible because of my kids and their friends. All this started with my little one who had this baking project which was to be based on a book. Of course, she chose the book 'Cake Pop Crush' and therefore we had to bake the cake pops to share in class (with added restrictions - no nuts). She had to take about 30 cake pops and the book to school the next day.

She later confessed that she wanted to make cake pops and so chose that book. When I said that she would have to bake them too, she was on top of the world. So with her friends in 
tow, she came to me saying that they were ready to bake cake pops.

I handed over the floor (flour??) to them and watched them create magic in my kitchen from the sidelines. Boy! such a mess they made of the whole place, what with chocolate sauce all over, sprinkles sticking to their little feet, the white chocolate icing dribbling from their tiny hands. Added to this their running commentary on how each of them wanted the icing and the sprinkles. The older kids were guiding the little ones on how to minimize wastage and the best way to handle the pops etc..

It was so amusing and entertaining to see them handle the mess, each one running to the sink to clean up their hands 100 times in the process. The best part was they cleaned up all the messes once the cake pops were in the refrigerator. They were so happy to polish off the leftover crumbs, candy melts and icing. Since they made about 50, they counted 30 of them, kept them aside and devoured the remaining 20 in a flash!

They even sweetly volunteered to take pictures for the blog. Can they get any sweeter?? They just made my day by taking care of the cake pops, cleaning up and even offering to take pictures. Thank you kiddos!!!

Chocolate Cake Pops

Recipe Source my little one and her book
Ingredients - 

Chocolate Cake Crumbs 4 cups (Vegan or Sponge Cake)
Cocoa Powder 2 Tbsp
Milk 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp
Icing Sugar 2 cups
Butter 1 Tbsp
Candy Melts (I used White chocolate) 1/2 pound
Sprinkles as needed
Other items - Cake Pop Sticks 50 (or as needed), Styrofoam blocks


Chocolate Cake Pops

Method Of Preparation -


For the Chocolate Sauce - 
In a heated pan, add butter, cocoa powder, icing sugar and milk. Mix well until it is bubbly. Adjust the sugar and milk as needed.

Remove from heat and set aside.

For the Cake Pops -  In a mixing bowl, add the chocolate cake crumbs and add in the chocolate sauce as needed and knead into a stiff dough.

Pinch about a small lime sized portions and roll into a ball. Insert the cake pop stick into the center of the ball and set aside in a parchment lined tray. Continue with the rest of the material.

Freeze for about 30 minutes or refrigerate for about 2 hours until they are set.

For the Toppings -  Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate either in the microwave or a double boiler. Mix well and set aside.

Remove the cake pops from the refrigerator, dip or drizzle the molten white chocolate onto the cake pops and roll them on the sprinkles(or sprinkle the sprinkles :)).

Stick the cake pops onto Styrofoam blocks and let them set in the refrigerator.

They are then ready to be served. (Trust me, serving these pops is no easy task. Be prepared to deal with huge messes :) )
