Tasty chocolate cake pops

teddy bear cake pops

The twins were two today! To celebrate we had a few cakes including these teddy bear cake pops. As I was a bit pushed for time I went for the easiest ingredients I could which means most of it was ready-made. I wanted this to be really simple and fun.

Ingredients

(makes about 8-10 teddy bear cake pops)
  • 1/2 tub of ready mixed chocolate butter cream icing
  • 1 madeira cake
  • 500g bar of milk chocolate
  • 1 pack of white chocolate buttons
  • candy eyeballs
  • chocolate drops
  • lollypop sticks

Cut off the sides of the cake and crumble into a bowl.

Mix the icing with the cake crumbs and roll into a ball. It should be quite firm. Wrap in cling film and put into the fridge for at least half an hour.

Put the sticks half way into the cake balls. I put them back in the fridge for another half an hour as they seem to stay on the stick better .

melted chocolateMelt the chocolate. I prefer to do this over a bowl of boiling water.

Dip the cake pops in the melted chocolate.

To decorate add two buttons for ears, a button with a chocolate drop on for the nose and the candy eyes. I buy the candy eyes from hobbycraft, you can get them from some cake decorating shops or from Ebay. Put in the fridge to set.

To display I use florists foam and stick them at different heights. I had a little helper to give them out.
