I have some leftover sponge cake, so I’m going to make the cake pops, original treats that will make any kid happy! Begin by crumbling the sponge cake with your hands. To prepare this recipe, besides sponge cake, you can use a plain bundt cake, a paradise cake, a margherita cake, a chocolate cake, or why not, since it’s Christmas time, even pandoro or panettone, you can find all these recipes on yellowsaffron. Now it’s time to add the jam. I am using peach jam, but you can choose any jam you like. Add… 4 tablespoons… and blend with your hands. Of course, according to the moisture of the cake, decide whether to add more or less jam.
Ok, the dough is ready. Take a tray lined with parchment paper… and roll it into small balls… about this size.
Here we are, I made 30 cake balls… now keep them in the freezer for at least half an hour.
Melt the dark and white chocolate in the microwave, now take the cake balls, which have been resting in the freezer… and start decorating. Insert a lollipop stick into each cake ball… and coat with melted chocolate. Then cover with coloured sprinkles. Allow them to dry by sticking into a foam block… and continue in this way: dip in white chocolate, this time… roll to coat well… and garnish with coloured sprinkles, chopped hazelnuts, shredded coconut or white chocolate sprinkles.
They’re ready! Keep them in the fridge until it’s time to eat them.
And it’s also a wonderful gift… beautiful, easy and quick! Merry Christmas!
