Ingredients

For the dough:

  • 100 g soft butter
  • 2 tbsp baking cocoa
  • 100 g blueberry jam
  • 400g chocolate cake

For the Yoda Cake Pops:

  • edible sugar eyes
  • 200 g white couverture
  • green food coloring, powder form
  • 10g coconut fat
  • green fondant
  • 100 g green fondant

For the Death Star Cake Pops:

  • gray fondant
  • black food coloring, powder form
  • 10g coconut fat
  • 200 g white couverture

In addition:

  • approx. 20 lollipop sticks
  • 1 styrofoam block

Procedure

  1. First, use your fingers to crumble the cake into very small pieces. Then put the butter, jam, and cocoa powder in a bowl with the cake crumbs and mix well with your hands. Then form about 20 balls, wrap a plate with cling film, place the balls on top, cover with film, and chill in the fridge for an hour.
  2. In the meantime, you can form little ears for the Yoda cake pops out of the green fondant mass.
  3. Then chop the chocolate and melt it together with the coconut oil in a metal bowl over a hot water bath. Sprinkle in the green food coloring for the Yoda cake pops and mix well. Use the black food coloring for the Death Star cake pops.
  4. Now take the dough balls out of the fridge and first dip a lollipop stick into the chocolate 1 cm deep and then put it in a dough ball. Put the cake pops in the styrofoam block and let the chocolate dry.
  5. When all the sticks have a ball, dip the balls one by one into the chocolate, let them drain briefly, and put them back into the polystyrene block to dry.
  6. You can now plug in your ears and eyes for the Yoda cake pops.
  7. For the Death Star cake pop, poke a hole in the finished cake pop with a toothpick until you can see the dark interior. Now you can paint the typical Death Star pattern with the fondant.
