These pops are the new cupcakes. They are just beautiful to look at and almost too pretty to eat! These Rocky road pops require no cooking - just assembly and these are destined for the school cake sale for red nose day. I’ve
suggested that you make 25 here, and use a biscuit base, however pre decoration they freeze beautifully and if you keep a few back in the freezer they make super quick gifts in an emergency. The biscuits I used this week are Gingernuts, but any
dry biscuits should be fine and I used Waitrose Essential Cooks Marshmallows.
Prep time 1 hour
Cooking time 0 minutes
Suitable for freezing Pre decorating Yes
125g Unsalted butter
100g icing sugar
380g biscuits ( Ginger snaps or Digestive )
300g milk chocolate
50g tiny marshmallows
25 lollypop sticks
1 In a food mixer beat the butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy.
2 Place the biscuits into a food processor and turn into fine crumbs. A strong plastic bag and a rolling pin will do the same job if you seal well and bash the bag gently.
3 Add the biscuits to the butter icing and mix well for a further 2 minutes until they are evenly
4 Using your hands scoop a ping pong ball size amount out and in the palm of your hand squeeze the mixture together. It will together but it takes a moment for the mix to cake together in your hand.
5 Once a cake ball has formed gently insert the lollypop stick and place on a tray. When all 25 have been made place them into the freezer. (These can remain frozen for up to 3 months until you are ready to decorate them) However after 15 minutes they are cold enough to decorate.
6 In the mean time, melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water making sure that the water does not touch the base of the bowl.
7 Once the chocolate is melted remove the pops from the freezer and dip in the melted chocolate. Decorate with marshmallows
8 I used an orange cut in half to keep mine upright, but don’t leave them there too long as the paper sticks go soggy. (Oasis is better)
Pops will keep for up to 2 weeks in a cool environment.
