Cakepop madness

I was tempted by the latest deal on one of those groupon type sites & ended up with this

You’re excited for me too, I can tell. I had great plans to put the boys down for their nap & then get stuck into this on my own. The boys, of course, had other plans! Master 2 is being particularly deviant at the moment, which is driving us bat-shit crazy, and naps are his favourite time to test me. We’re currently about 6-0 in his favour!

So guess who had 2 helpers making cake-pops???I didn’t take photos ‘coz it was impossible to keep Master 3’s fingers out of the batter, Master 2 from stabbing us with knives he kept finding up on the counter & focus the camera at the same time. Multi-tasking was not an option.

The first step was easy…make a cake batter. As I was planning on taking them to playgroup tomorrow & one of the kiddies is gluten free, I chose a simple gluten free recipe here. The only change I made was I used an actual egg instead of the substitute they used.

So far so good…

Note to self, use plain dairy chocolate, NOT fruit & nut!

Image

…so pretty!

So I went with the trusty coconut oil, cocoa powder & honey…

slightly better

Master 2 was keen to help here

Image

not quite set yet though

Image

couldn’t get it in his mouth fast enough

yum!

Will definitely try again with ‘proper’ chocolate ‘coz these were yum
