Halloween Baking...

To mark the ghoulish time of year that is Halloween, I decided it was time to get my baking hat back on! Making these Eerie Eyeball Cake Pops is really simple and I think they're the perfect scary treat.

- 100g Madeira cake
- 100g Oreo cookies
- 100g milk chocolate (melted)
- 200g white chocolate (melted)
- Smarties
- Icing pens

- Break the Madeira cake and Oreos into the bowl of a food processor, pour in the melted milk chocolate and whizz to combine
- Use your hands to roll them into about 10 walnut sized balls, chill for 2 hours until firm
- Push a cake pop stick/skewer into each and carefully spoon over the melted white chocolate. Stand the cake pops in a pumpkin and let the chocolate harden slightly before pressing a Smartie onto each one
- Chill the cake pops until they have set, then using the icing pens add a pupil to each eye ball and some wiggle red veins

I found the original recipe on the BBC Good Food website here. I didn't have a food processor so used a rolling pin to break the Oreos into fine crumbs and used our soup blitzer to crumble the Madeira cake.

Let me know if you give these scary treats a go!
