Every year, Tia and I make cakes for each other’s birthdays, and each year it gets harder and harder to think of something different that the other person will like! So this year, after a lot of head scratching, I thought I’d try something different. Taking inspiration from Oreo Pops, which seem to be all over Pinterest at the moment, I thought I’d jazz up Tia’s all-time favourite biscuits into pops – because putting anything on a stick instantly makes it ten times better. This method could be used with any sandwich-style biscuit or even to make your own new type of biscuit by sandwiching two together with chocolate in the middle.
You will need:
- Packet of Crunch Cream biscuits
- 150g white chocolate
- 150g milk chocolate
- 100s and 1000s
- Lollipop sticks
- Sharp knife
1.Begin by using a sharp knife to cut your sandwich in half down the cream bit. Remove a small section of the cream and place the stick in the hole created. You can put a few biscuits onto one stick.
- Melt the white chocolate and use a teaspoon to drizzle it into the middle, to glue the biscuit back together. Leave in the fridge for the chocolate to harden.
- Once the chocolate has hardened and the remaining white chocolate has cooled, you can now get dipping your pops. You want to cover the whole biscuit(s) and then dip into your toppings.
4. Leave on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper, and return them to the fridge to harden. Once hardened, you can touch up the other side of the pop with chocolate if there are any gaps.
I tried several designs, including immersing the whole biscuit in chocolate, or leaving part of it uncovered so you can see the crunch cream.
These are so easy to make and could be done with the help of kids – just wait until the chocolate has cooled enough. As Phoebe from Friends once said, these are the cookies that will make all the other cookies jealous!
