Homemade Cake Pops For Grown Ups!

Makes about 20

4oz Caster Sugar
4oz Butter or Margarine
3oz Self Raising Flour
1oz Cocoa Powder
2 Eggs
100g Dark Chocolate
100ml Condensed Milk
4tbsp Cointreau

To Decorate
2 Chocolate Oranges
or 200g White Chocolate with colouring and 2tsp orange essence.

This recipe is exactly the same as my other cake pop recipe but with a few changes.

Turn oven to 180oC. Firstly bake your cake, cream sugar and butter together until light and fluffy then add one egg at a time. Use an electric whisk it will give you a lovely light airy sponge. Add flour and cocoa and whisk until combined. Put in a baking tray and bake for 25-35 mins depending on your oven and the size of the tin.

Once the cake is baked and cooled put in a food processor to crumb. Melt your dark chocolate and condensed milk together in a bowl over a pan of hot water then add the cointreau. Pour in your cake crumbs and mix together put heaped spoonfuls on to a plate then let these chill in a fridge for 1-2 hours.

Once the mixture has cooled roll the spooned out mixture into balls. Melt your decorating chocolate, decorate and add whatever sprinkles you want. Let them set and you are done!

This ones for all the grown ups to enjoy. :-)
