So I said to my friend I’d make something sweet for her daughters Christening…Then I thought there are going to be a lot of smart people so the last thing that is needed is tiny little sticky hands everywhere. These chocolate lollies are perfect. Chocolatey/sparkly/and stickiness free….Kids and adults love them. This recipe is so simple, you can leave the lollies plain or go all out on the edible decorations….
Makes 30 lollies
200g dark chocolate
200g white chocolate
Cake pop lolly sticks (available at all good Supermarkets)
1 large orange (just the zest)
Hundreds and thousands
Dried fruit (chopped)
Melt the dark chocolate and white chocolate in 2 separate bowls, either over a pan of boiling water or in a microwave for about 1.5 minutes.
While the chocolate is melting, draw round a circular cookie cutter onto some greaseproof paper (as it’s Christmas you could try and do Christmas shapes if you are feeling adventurous). Once the chocolate has melted remove from the heat and mix with a spoon till there are no lumps. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.
Take the dark chocolate and place half in a piping bag. Carefully follow the circles on the baking sheet with the chocolate. Once you have drawn them all carefully lay down the cake pop sticks half way across the lollies. Place the baking sheet in the fridge, for roughly 5 minutes or until the chocolate sets.
Remove from the fridge, with a clean teaspoon take the white chocolate and fill the middle of the ‘lollies’ – making sure the white chocolate joins up to the dark chocolate. Here comes the fun part. Take any cake decorations or flavourings and sprinkle on the lollies (as much or as little as you want).
Once you have finished decorating place the lollies back in the fridge to completely set.
