Tomorrow is Christmas evening and this year my responsibility for our family dinner was desserts. I decided to make Christmas Tree Cake Pops, which are super delicious, cure and quick and easy to make.
This probably won’t be enough for everybody, but luckily my mom is tackling this task with me, and she made 2 cakes as well.
We meet at my aunt’s house every year, which is next to where I used to live and a few minutes by car from where Luka used to live. This way we can spend half the evening with my family and the other half with his. Hopefully one day we will have a HUGE dining room and we can invite everyone to our place and make Christmas dinner.
What you will need for this cake pops is:
- Cake 400g
- Butter 40g
- Food coloring (green)
- Edible food decoration
- Coconut Flakes
- White Chocolate
Firstly you want to tear up the cake into small little pieces.
Next, gradually add butter to the mixture in order for it to stick together. Try and add as little possible for it to still stick together in a ball. If that makes sense 🙂
Form little balls of the mixture, I got 17 from the 400g of cake. From the balls than create little cones to represent trees. Place them in the fridge for the butter to become solid.
A little trick to melt your chocolate is to use two pots. Fill one with water and place it on the stove. Place the other one over it to melt the chocolate there. If you place the chocolate directly on the stove it is very likely to burn. I mix a bit of sunflower oil into the chocolate, as it is very tacky otherwise.
Dip the sticks into chocolate and secure it into the pop. Place it in the fridge for the chocolate to firm up.
Next, when the pops are cooled down mix the color into chocolate, and dip them into the green. Set them on your stand and wait a moment for them to dry up before decorating them. Don’t let them dry up completely, for them to stick. Also, sprinkle some coconut flakes over it to recreate snow.
We bought little, colored balls to represent ornaments and little stars for the top of the tree.
By the way. By stand? It is a random box I poked holes in. After the cake pops were completely dry I took them off and washed (ate 😛 ) all the chocolate that dripped off. I wrapped the box into gold paper and poked the holes again.
Place them back in place and there you have it. Your snowy Christmas tree forest.
Let me know if you recreate this and have wonderful holidays! xx
