Chocolate Strawberry Cake Pop Recipe
And today we are going to make chocolate roses
which have a strawberry in the middle.
To start with you'll need to make some modeling
chocolate and I will link you to that recipe
video on my channel at the end of this one
and I'll also put a link to that below.
Roll out 5 balls of your modeling chocolate
some can be slightly larger than others that's
fine and just place them on some non-stick
baking paper.
And then roll a snake of your modeling chocolate
as well and place that there.
Space them out on you baking paper and then
place a second piece over the top. And then
gently squash each one and then roll them
flat using a rolling pin.
Then do the same with the snake, squashing
that long and flat.
Wash and hull your strawberries
Then take a cake-pop stick and dip it into
some of the tempered real white chocolate
or you could use melted compound chocolate,
either one. And push that into the cut part
of the strawberry. And then dip the whole
strawberry into the chocolate, turning it
to make sure it is completely encased in the
chocolate. You want to make sure you choose
strawberries here that are symmetrical and
cone shaped so they are kind of pointy at
the top. Not the huge strange shaped ones.
Let that set.
Then take your snake of modeling chocolate
and roll up one end going about half way and
this making the centre of your flower.
Using your knife cut off half of the spiral
so the underneath half of it making sure you
don't cut off the long end of the snake we
still need that.
Now place the spiral on top of the strawberry
and then wrap around the rest of the snake
so that it is tight on the strawberry bit
but loose at the top so it looks like petals.
Then take your first chocolate petal and place
it on the side of the strawberry.
Take your next petal and overlap it over the
first one.
And repeat that again with the next one making
sure when you look down from the top into
the rose that you can't see any of the white
Then gently use your fingers to feather out
the top of the petals so that it looks like
they are opening up.
Take another petal and stretch it around to
cover the white chocolate at the base and
up to be the right height at the top. Then
bend that petal out at the top a little so
it looks like the rose is opening up.
If you have a petal thats not quite round
like this one just find the best edge and
use that for the top of the petal and stretch
the base down like we did before to make it
reach to the bottom of the bud.
You can leave it just like that or you can
continue to add more petals if you want a
fuller flower.
Continue to make more roses, you can do some
in white modeling chocolate or coloured modeling
chocolate if you prefer. I just stuck to the
milk chocolate and the white chocolate for
this bunch.
In the bunch I also want some of the strawberries
to be visible.
because I want some of that bright red colour.
Put some chocolate on a cake pop stick and
push it into the cut end of the strawberry
and then dip the tip of the strawberry into
the chocolate as well. Then put it into a
cup to set. This is a good use up any of the
strawberries that were not pointy on top.
And so that you can still use them in your
Arrange your strawberries and roses on some
celophane with some golden tissue paper or
whatever colour you like and then wrap them
up and secure them firmly with some ribbon.
And then they are ready for you to give away,
what a yummy gift.
