For some reason, Halloween always seems to creep up on me and it’s a mad rush to make something edible. If you’re the same and need a last minute quick and easy ‘bake’ (there’s actually no baking involved!), give these biscuit pops a go. These are ideal for children to make.
1. Take each biscuit from a packet of Oreos (or any similar sandwich-style biscuit you like) and carefully lift off one of the biscuit halves.
2. Melt a few squares of white chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water.
3. Dip the end of a lollipop stick into the white chocolate. Then place this on the biscuit half with the filling on it.
4. Put a bit of melted chocolate on the other half of the biscuit then stick the biscuit back together and press down slightly.
5. Put each biscuit onto a lined baking tray then place the tray in the freezer. Leave to set for an hour or so.
6. Whilst the biscuits are in the freezer, melt half a bag of orange candy melts in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water. Alternatively, you can use white chocolate and add some orange food colouring gel.
7. Take one of the biscuit pops and, using a spoon to help you, cover it in the melted orange chocolate.
8. Add any sprinkles or sweeties you like. We didn’t have any specific Halloween sprinkles so used orange sugar sand, purple and orange sprinkles and some Halloween Haribo sweets. You could also use some writing icing (the sort in tubes that you can get in the baking section of the supermarket) or some black royal icing to add scary faces etc.
9. Place the covered and decorated biscuit pops on the lined baking tray. Leave at room temperature or place in the fridge until the chocolate has set.
Enjoy your yummy Halloween cake pops!! Great for giving to trick or treat visitors!
You can easily adapt these biscuit pops to suit other occasions. For Christmas, you could cover in white chocolate and decorate to look like snowmen.
