Hope you’ve not got the Monday blues! I thought I’d share an easy recipe, I’ve been struggling to resist cake lately. One of my work colleagues gave me it but I’m not sure where it is from originally.
It’s an easy one, all you need is
- Two packs of oreos
- White Chocolate (I used one pack of white cooking chocolate, think it’s about 200g)
- Lollipop sticks (ebay is great for these)
These are really easy to make and taste amazing! Firstly you need to separate the oreo’s and remove the cream bit and put them in a food processor (I don’t have one so my blender did the job). Apologies for some of the photos, my camera wouldn’t focus due to the silver and my hands were dirty!
Whizz them up till they are a smooth crumb. I found I need to keep scraping the sides and freeing the mixture up, as when it got smoother it got stuck a bit.
Once it’s too a fine breadcrumb mixture add the nutella. I find it works best to add it a teaspoon at a time and stir well after each addition. Too much nutella made the soft. You want the mixture to just bind.
When the mixture is bound, roll into balls. I placed mine onto a tin foil tray to save them sticking. This part gets you very messy!! Lots of hand washing is needed as your hands will get very sticky.
When you’ve made it into balls pop in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm up. While they are in the freezer melt the chocolate.
Pull out of the freezer and dip the lolly sticks into the chocolate, then press into the balls. The chocolate will work as glue for the sticks. Again freeze for 10 minutes so the chocolate sets.
Pull out of the freezer and dip each of the cake pops in chocolate. As it’s white chocolate and dark mixture, I double dipped the cake pops so they looked white. It also makes a firmer shell.
They can be decorated in a variety of ways. For my niece I made them into cookie monsters by colouring dessicated coconut and adding the features with icing. With these while the second coat of chocolate is still wet sprinkle with coconut. I also used fondant icing cut into shapes for a grown up version.
They are sooo tasty and super easy to whip up! Will you be trying these?
