Brandy Christmas Pudding Pops

Posted on December 9, 2011


Have you had enough of cake pops yet?

I think I have. But I decided to share these anyway. I know how you like it when baking goes bad.

I had good intentions. I decided to make them for a New Years Eve party and I thought I could make good use of a McVities Golden Syrup Cake and some homemade brandy butter that I had left.

Better to share at a party than stand by the fridge eating it with a spoon don’t you think?

I whizzed the cake to crumbs then added a few spoonfuls of brandy butter and rolled it into balls.

That all went SO well.

Then I made my mistake. I didn’t have time to put them in the fridge or freezer to harden up.

So when I dipped them in hot melted chocolate, lots of them melted…and dropped off their sticks.


Little chocolate bombs went off around the kitchen. I sulked.

I ate them with a spoon.

I salvaged some with white fondant icing and some holly and they looked pretty cute.

But this will be my last pop.

Stick a stick in me.

I’m done.
