Halloween Cake Pops: Pumpkins, Ghosts & co

All as terrifying as each other!
Preparation1 h 15 min
Baking28 min
Total1 h 45 min
Quantity: 30

Ingredients:

  • 125 g half-salted butter
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 3 eggs
  • 125 g powdered sugar
  • 100 g of flour
  • 150 g plain Philadelphia fresh cheese
  • +
  • 1 bag of candy melts white pistols
  • Orange gel coloring
  • Vegetable oil optional
  • A little brown dyed sugar paste
  • A little icing sugar
  • Black gel dye

Preparation:

  • Chocolate cake: preheat the oven to 180 ° c. Melt the butter and chocolate in a double boiler (or microwave for more speed). In another bowl, beat the eggs and sugar. Add the flour in rain while continuing to mix. Once the mixture is homogeneous, pour in the melted chocolate / butter. Your dough is ready! Pour into a buttered mould. Bake for 28 minutes. Check for doneness with the tip of a knife. Let cool on rack.
  • Cake pops modeling: unmold the cake thus obtained and put it in a blender to reduce it to crumbs. Add the cream cheese and mix everything together until a homogeneous texture is obtained.
  • Then form small balls with your hands (for the pumpkins) and sort of wavy rectangles (!) For the ghosts, place them on a baking sheet and keep them in the fridge for 2 hours so that the shapes are firm.
  • Decorating the cake pops: melt the pistoles in the microwave (I chose them white, to color them later, but all the colors are available!). Once melted, color half of the pistoles in orange with a few drops of liquid coloring. Mix well to homogenize the color. Add a little vegetable oil to liquefy the pistoles a little, which are quite compact. Mix well. Take a lollipop stick and dip it on 1 cm in the melted pistoles, then push a ball of cake pop on about 1,5 cm. Then completely dip the cake pop in the icing, tap well on the rim while turning the stick so that the excess falls. For the pumpkins, I added, before drying, a small piece of sugar paste dyed in khaki as a stem on top. Then prick the stick on polystyrene for drying.
  • Prepare a black royal icing to make the faces: a little icing sugar with a few drops of water, mix well, add a little black food coloring, and mix. Use a food brush to draw on the cake pops.

Notes:

Then keep in a cool place before tasting.

    These cake pops are really beautiful! I tried it a few days ago and the candy melts pistols gave me a hard time (too compact, even adding a little vegetable oil): what is your technique to get the right consistency?

      Thanks Co! Indeed Candy Melts can be difficult to handle. What I advise you is to respect the heating time in the microwave, and to mix (very, very) vigorously afterwards. At this time, your texture should be very smooth. If necessary, heat again and / or add a little oil. Be careful though, if you add too much oil, the opposite effect is true, the texture becomes too runny and almost transparent on the cake pops… @ soon!

    They make you want these cake pops! I would love to do this for my daughter's school Halloween party, but not Philadelphia in my supermarket: / What can I substitute for it? Mascarpone maybe?

    Hello,
    I would like to make this recipe but I already have cake pop molds, will the cooking time be a game-changer or not?

      Hello, I personally hate these molds for the good reason that they are useless. Real cake pops must be molded by hand using cake crumbs and cream, there is no baking! @ soon

    is it possible to replace fresh cheese with a simple cottage cheese?
