Christmas Cake Pops

Made with Oreo and Cream Cheese Truffles (Reindeer Poo)

Make truffles as per recipe above or make you own if you already have a favourite
Place rolled truffle balls into the freezer to firm up a little
When firm dip 1/2 - 3/4 of a truffle ball into the melted milk chocolate and before chocolate sets dip the tip of a stick into melted chocolate and insert straight into the ball. (This will stop the truffle sliding down the stick as the set chocolate will hold them in place)
Repeat for each ball and allow to set.

Now dip the top 1/2 of each ball into melted white chocolate and decorate before the chocolate sets.

I used holly made from fondant icing coloured with gel food colouring. The leaves were cut using a cutter purchased from a cake decorating shop and the berries were individually rolled by hand (boy was that a job lol)

By placing each cake pop (stick) into a styrofoam block once you have dipped them into the white chocolate makes it easier to decorate them and it is also a nice way for presentation if you pre wrap the styrofoam block in christmas paper.
