Ingredients

Method

1.Using a fork, combine cake crumbs and frosting in a medium bowl. Shape level tablespoons of mixture into balls, squeezing firmly. Place balls on a baking paper-lined tray; freeze 1 hour or refrigerate 3 hours or overnight, until firm.
2.Stir chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl over a medium saucepan of simmering water until smooth (don’t let water touch base of bowl). Pour into a heatproof jug.
3.Dip the curly end of one straw into the chocolate, then push the straw about halfway into a ball of cake. Return to tray. Repeat with remaining straws and balls of cake. Place in the freezer for about 5 minutes to set.
4.Decorate about four cake pops at a time. Dip a pop into the chocolate, rocking back and forth to coat; don’t swirl the pop, or it’ll break. Allow excess chocolate to drip back into the jug. Stand cake pop upright in a styrofoam block until almost set. Place sprinkles in small bowls. Before chocolate completely sets, dip cake pop in sprinkles, turning to cover surface. Stand upright until set. Repeat with remaining cake pops. Re-melt chocolate as necessary.

Ready-made rich chocolate fudge frosting is available in packets from the supermarket and cake decorating shops.
