Fruit mince pie pops

Ingredients

Fruit mince pie pops
  • 80 gram dark chocolate
  • 360 gram fruit mince pies
  • 2 tablespoon sweet sherry
  • 250 gram dark chocolate melts
  • 1/4 cup (55g) demerara sugar

Method

Fruit mince pie pops
  • 1
    Cut 18 slits into top of empty egg carton.
  • 2
    Melt the dark chocolate in a small heatproof bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the water touch the base of the bowl). Cool.
  • 3
    Break the mince pies into a medium bowl; crush finely with a fork. Stir in sherry and melted chocolate. With slightly wet hands, roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls; place on a baking paper-lined tray. Freeze about 1 hour, or until firm.
  • 4
    Melt the chocolate melts in a small heatproof bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the water touch the base of the bowl); transfer melted chocolate to a mug to make dipping easier.
  • 5
    Working with one ball of mixture at a time, dip the tips of the cake pop or ice-block sticks into the melted chocolate, then push into the fruit mince balls. Dip the balls in chocolate; drain off excess, then sprinkle tops with sugar. Insert sticks into the slits in the egg carton. Stand the pops at room temperature, until set.

You need an empty egg carton or block of styrofoam and 18 cake pop sticks or ice-block sticks for this recipe. Not suitable to freeze. Suitable to melt chocolate in microwave.
