Baking ingredients

  • 250 g chocolate cake or off-cuts
  • 3 tbsp Renshaw Chocolate Frosting
  • 2 tbsp salted caramel icing sugar
  • 200 g milk chocolate

Decorating ingredients

  • 50 g red candy melts
  • 50 g sugar sprinkles


Step 1

Pre-bake or buy a chocolate cake. Turn the cake into crumbs either by hand or in a processor. (Make sure to let the cake cool first if you have made from scratch!)

Step 2

Use a fork to mix in the frosting and icing sugar until the mix is uniform in colour. Be careful not to over work or it will become stodgy.

Step 3

Shape by hand into balls or use a heart shaped cookie cutter dipped in icing sugar for Valentine's Day heart cake pops. Chill for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Melt some of the chocolate, enough to dip sticks or straws at the top, then put these into the base of each shape. Chill until set.

Step 5

Melt the rest of the chocolate in a small bowl, dip each pop quickly and gently tap off the excess. If you leave it too long in warm chocolate it may fall off!

Step 6

Use a polystyrene block or purpose made stand to hold the pops while they set.

Step 7

Once set, melt the red candy melts following the instructions on pack. Use a piping bag and cut a small hole in the end. Pipe lines or words on your pops and add sprinkles.

Step 8

For a professional finish you can add lollipop wrappers and ties.

Step 9

These work with any flavour cake so can be really personal.
