Speculoos Cake Pops

Photo and Recipe by: Mondomulia

Butter cream Ingredients
  • 140g butter
  • 280g icing sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
Cake Pops Ingredients
  • 600g cake
  • 200g buttercream frosting
  • 4 tbsp Speculoos Spread
  • 400g chocolate or candy melts
  • lollipop sticks
  • sprinkles
·         Prepare the buttercream frosting by beating the butter in a large bowl with the icing sugar, until smooth. Add one or two tablespoons of milk, if necessary, to loosen the mixture.
·         Crumble the madeleines in small pieces using your fingers, then mix the crumbles with the buttercream frosting and the speculoos spread until you have a dough like mixture.
·         Place mixture into fridge to firm up for at least 30 minutes (the longer, the better). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
·         When the dough is firm, scoop out small portions and roll into a ball, then place this on the baking sheet. Repeat until all mixture has gone. Keep the balls in the fridge, so they stay firm (I kept them overnight).
·         Melt the chocolate or candy melts in a bain-marie or in the microwave. If you are using the microwave, be careful to use medium power and stir the chocolate every 30 seconds.
·         Dip one lollipop stick into the melted chocolate and then push it in a cold cake bite. Repeat this step until you have used all the sticks, before starting to coat the cake bites. This will allow the chocolate to stiff around the stick.
·         If the chocolate sets in the bowl, melt it again in the microwave.
·         Dip the whole cake pop in the chocolate, using a spoon to ensure the chocolate is spread evenly. Gently tap the cake pop on the side of the bowl to let the extra chocolate drip off.
·         Before the chocolate sets on the cake pop, add the sprinkles. You can dry the cake pop facing up (you will need a foam block) or facing down (placing them on a plate).
