Makes 10 servings
100g/4 oz madeira cake (You can find an easy recipe here from Kitchn)
100g Oreo cookie
100g bar milk chocolate, melted
200g bar white chocolate, melted
few Smarties and icing pens, to decorate
You will also need
10 wooden skewers
½ small pumpkin or butternut squash, deseeded, to stand pops in
STEP 1 Break the Madeira cake and cookies into the bowl of a food processor, pour in the melted milk chocolate and whizz to combine.
STEP 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.
STEP 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.
