Method

  1. Break the Madeira cake and cookies into the bowl of a food processor, pour in the melted milk chocolate and whizz to combine.

  2. Tip the mixture into a bowl, then use your hands to roll into about 10 walnut-sized balls. Chill for 2 hrs until really firm.

  3. Push a skewer into each ball, then carefully spoon the white chocolate over the cake balls to completely cover. Stand the cake pops in the pumpkin, then press a Smartie onto the surface while wet. Chill again until the chocolate has set. Before serving, using the icing pens, add a pupil to each Smartie and wiggly red veins to the eyeballs.

Love this recipe. Although it is more time consuming then I thought, it has been great fun to do and a resounding success. Everyone thinks these are wonderful. And they taste delightful too. I will be making these again.

I actually followed the recipe exactly, which is not something I usually manage to do. It was more fiddly than it seemed and took longer to prepare then I'd thought. As with the previous comment (which I only just now read), the white chocolate was difficult to work with and dripped everywhere and didn't cover as "whitely" as the photo implies. Also, careful not to chill the balls too hard before attempting the skewer them. I skewered my index finger, which didn't help my attitude at all. Still, it got raves at the party and the kids did enjoy them. I'll definitely make them again.

this recipe doesn't look like the picture at all, the white chocolate is difficult to handle. Fun to do but a little disappointing.
