How To Make Chocolate Lollipops


The chocolate lollipop idea came from Ina's show Barefoot Contessa.  Ina used white chocolate, dry fruits and raw nuts to make her lollipops, but since the ones you see in the photo were made for kids I used milk chocolate and smarties.
------------------------------------------
Makes approximately 25 Chocolate Lollipops.
Melt 800gr of milk chocolate in the microwave. Stir every 30 seconds until chocolate has melted completely. With the help of a deep spoon poor chocolate in rounds on a non stick sheet. Instead of a non stick sheet I used a silicone sheet, something that I do not recommend since I broke a few lollipops when I tried to remove them. 

Before the chocolate has set, place the lollipop sticks in the middle of each chocolate round, giving the stick a little twist. In this way the stick will be covered with chocolate.

Sprinkle the tops of the lollipops evenly with the smarties. Set aside to harden, overnight.  Remove from the sheet and store in a dry place.

Kids will be thrilled with the idea of a chocolate lollipop. 
Take my word for it :-)!!

    1. It is not hard to make. You just move gently the spoon in circles until you get the shape you want...

"Κοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου" (από την Ήβη Λιακοπούλου)

ΑΦΗΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΣΧΟΛΙΟ ΣΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΠΕΙΤΕ ΣΕ ΚΛΗΡΩΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ! -------------------------------------
Η συμπατριώτισσα μας και φίλη μου Ήβη Λιακοπούλου, από το μπλογκΚοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου, που ζει στην Ελλάδα εδώ και πάρα πολλά χρόνια, επιτέλους μετάφρασε στα Ελληνικά το βιβλίο της Mint Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste, το οποίο αγόρασα μόλις κυκλοφόρησε, πριν 1½  χρόνο περίπου, και πραγματικά εκεί βρήκα όλες τις παραδοσιακές συνταγές της Κύπρου. Ήδη μαγείρεψα πάρα πολλές συνταγές και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι καμία δεν με απογοήτευσε.
Εάν έχετε συγγενείς και φίλους, Έλληνες, Κύπριους ή γνώστες της Ελληνικής γλώσσας που θέλουν να μάθουν την Κυπριακή κουζίνα, σίγουρα ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο θα εκτιμηθεί δεόντως. Κάντε το δώρο στον εαυτό σας ή στα παιδιά σας που είναι φοιτητές και θέλουν να μάθουν να μαγειρεύουν, ή ακόμη κάντε το δώρο στους φίλους σας αυτά τα Χριστούγεννα. Στοιχίζει όσο δύο καφέδες!! Μόνο 6 Ευρώ από το μπλογκ της, σε μορφή pdf, αλλά εάν το θέλετε σε άλλη μο…

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
