Halloween Cake Pops

Tuesday, October 24

Yesterday I was in the mood for some halloween inspired baking so after some thought I remember I had a cake pop I'd never tried which led me to create these. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out too - definitely halloween party ready. 

You will need:

75g of caster sugar
75g of butter 
75g of plain flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and creamy then beat in the egg and vanilla extract until it is all combined. Then sieve the flour and fold it in carefully so you don't knock any air out.

Carefully spoon the mixture into the bottom half of the mould making then a little bit full and pop the top on. I then baked them at 180° for ten minutes (although this might depend on how big your moulds are) waiting a few minutes for them to cool before popping them out and repeating the process.  

All the recipes I've seen advise using candy melts but I was limited to what I could buy within walking distance so I used chocolate buttons instead. I melted these in a bowl over boiling water and carefully coated each ball with chocolate. As you can see they weren't going to come out smooth so I made them artfully messy instead. 

I bought the sprinkles in poundland and I love how cute they are (and you can't go wrong for £1). As I don't have a cake pop stand so I filled a glass with rice so they could stand up nicely. We will see how long they last now...
