Ferrero Rocher Cake Pops

Every Christmas, my OH’s Gran gives him and I a box of Ferrero Rocher, as it is one of his favourite chocolates, which is why you may recall I made him this Ferrero Rocher birthday cake last year.

It is a chocolate that always reminds me of Christmas, even though it can be bought throughout the year, and I recently made a Ferrero Rocher Cheesecake (recipe to follow next week), which was very easy and of course delish! Well, I was thinking of what to make for my playgroup the other day, when I saw the left over chocolates from making that cheesecake, and I suddenly had a thought, as you do! I thought that they looked a little like a cake pop in shape and size and then I thought (yes, I was on a roll that day lol!), why not make some Ferrero Rocher cake pops!!

And I did.

And here they are – easy and tasty and would make great gifts over Christmas or maybe to make and then to hand out and spoil your guests with!

Ingredients

  • cake pop sticks
Instructions
  1. Pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160oC fan
  2. Grease and line a square brownie tin (8 inch)
  3. Place the flour, eggs and nutella into a bowl and beat together for a couple of minutes until everything is combined
  4. Pour into your prepared tin and bake in theoven for approx 25 minutes until 'just' cooked so a little wobble is fine
  5. Leave the brownie to cool completely
  6. Once cold enough to handle, break the brownie up into a large mixing bowl and add the chocolate buttercream and nutella and using your hands give it a good mix
  7. Take small bits of the mixture and roll into small balls and place inside a cake pop mould (I used one from Lakeland - see below)
  8. Once the mould is full, stick your cake pop sticks into each cake pop mould hole
  9. Place carefully in the fridge for a couple of hours to chill and set
  10. When you are ready, melt some chocolate and leave to stand for a couple of minutes so not too hot
  11. Dip each cake pop into the chocolate to coat it, dip the end into the nuts and place on to a sheet of greaseproof paper
  12. Then leave a minute before coating the rest of the cake pop in the hazelnuts
  13. Your cake pops are ready!

These were quick and easy to make and used ingredients that I had in my house. With these cake pops, I am really spoiing you!!!!

My cake pops were made easier by using the Cake Pop mould featured below, which is actually a silicone set, which you can actually bake cake pops in, as they are oven safe.  However, I ued mine to help shape my cake pops, which worked out really well – phew! The cake pops look great presented on a plate with their sticks in the air, BUT if you fancy showing them off better then this fab acryllic stand is perfect for adding some style to your pops.

I was sent the cake pop accessories for the purpose of a review.

  1. Yum yum. I love ferrero rocher but only at Christmas time. Like After Eights, it doesn’t seem right any other time of the year LOL. Great recipe idea x
