Easter Egg Cake Pops

If you love Tim Tams, then you'll love these cake pops! They are simple enough for children to make because there is no baking required and you can whip up a batch in no time at all. Shape them into Easter eggs instead of balls and you have a yummy and easy Easter treat. Here's how to do it.


The base of these cake pops couldn't be easier to make: all you need is a packet of Tim Tams and cream cheese.

Place the Tim Tams and 1/3 cup of cream cheese into the food processor and pulse until they are almost smooth.

Then use an ice cream scoop to scoop out evenly sized portions.

Shape them in your hands....

..... until they are egg shaped.

Refrigerate them for about 15 minutes to firm them up.  You may need to keep doing this whilst you are working the mixture as it is quite soft in warm weather.

Whilst they are in the fridge, mix a drop of food colouring into some cake decorating fondant until it is well mixed. Make as many colours as you like.

Roll the fondant out thinly and cut it with a small flower cutter.

Next, melt some quality cooking chocolate. I used Cadbury Melts Real Dark Chocolate buttons because of its rich chocolatey taste and perfect dipping consistency.

Push a cake pop stick into the base of the "egg" and dip it into the chocolate, then add a few fondant flowers in pretty pastels to decorate the chocolate.

What could be easier!

'Til next time....
