  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Mix pre made chocolate cake (which has cooled and been crumbled) with chocolate frosting. You need to aim for a smooth 'play-doh' like consistency.

    Step 2

    Roll the cake/frosting mix into balls about the size of ping-pong balls. Chill the balls for about an hour until firm

    Step 3

    Dip lolly sticks into melted chocolate and push them into the cake balls. Chill in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set

    Step 4

    Take some candy melts and melt according to instructions. Or use melted white chocolate and dye with gel food colouring (not liquid colouring as the chocolate will split).

    Step 5

    Make eyeballs by rolling fondant icing into balls and dotting them with black food colouring for the pupils

    Step 6

    Once your candy melts are melted dip the cake balls in and then let the excess run off

    Step 7

    Dye coconut with liquid food colouring (shake together in a food bag) and sprinkle over the candy before it melts, make a slit for the mouth with a sharp knife, Then add the icing eyes. Cooookkieeees!

    Step 8

    Use different colours for characters

    Step 9

    Elmo!!! Same technique as before but I used a candy button for his nose.

    Step 10

    You make some other cake pops with the leftovers and whatever sprinkles or decorations you have to hand!
