Eerie eyeball pops

These spooky chocolate cake balls will be a hit with kids at Halloween - they can help decorate them too.

Treat | Easy | Serves 10 | Prep 30 Minutes | Cook 5 Minutes


  • 100g/4oz madeira cake

  • 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


Break the Madeira cake and cookies into the bowl of a food processor, pour in the melted milk chocolate and whizz to combine.

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.

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.
