Method

Choc caramel mud popcakes
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 160°C (140°C fan-forced). Grease 20cm x 30cm (8-inch x 12-inch) rectangular pan; line base with baking paper, extending paper 5cm (2 inches) over long sides.
  • 2
    Stir butter, chopped white chocolate, sugar, milk and golden syrup in medium saucepan over low heat until smooth. Transfer mixture to medium bowl; cool 10 minutes. Whisk in sifted flours, then egg. Spread mixture into pan.
  • 3
    Bake cake about 30 minutes. Stand cake in pan 10 minutes before turning, top-side up, onto wire rack to cool.
  • 4
    Using hands, crumble the cake into large bowl; stir in melted white chocolate. Shape rounded tablespoons of mixture into balls, squeezing firmly; place on baking-paper-lined tray. Cover; refrigerate 4 hours.

    Push one lollypop stick about half-way into each cake ball. Working quickly, dip cake balls in melted milk chocolate, then sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles. Stand at room temperature until set.

Notes

You need to press the cake mixture into balls using your hands - do not roll as the mixture will crumble. You will need 25 lollypop or paddle pop sticks for this recipe. When dipping the cake pops in melted chocolate, tilt the bowl of chocolate to one side, so the chocolate is deep enough to completely coat balls and a bit of the stick in chocolate; this will ensure the balls don't fall off the sticks. Push the sticks of the popcakes into the top of a cardboard egg carton to dry.
