No-Bake Choco-Nut Cake Pops

I have always wanted to make Cake Pops but I was apprehensive because I didn’t want to bake a cake only to crumble it to make these Cake Pops. So when the opportunity to join “Sarap maging kid with Inipit” or  #NoLimitWithInipit Contest was sponsored by Nuffnang, I decided to join using Inipit’s Custard Cake Sandwich as my cake base.

To make the Cake Pops healthier, I used Dried Figs and a local brand of all-natural and not so sweet peanut butter to hold the crumbled cake together instead of the usual shortening or jam or even chocolate-based spread. For the melted chocolate, I used semi-sweet chocolate. Maybe next time I will use dark chocolate instead to lessen the sweetness in the recipe. My children absolutely loved it but said it was a tad sweet for them. They are not used to eating too sweet and too salty food that’s why.

Anyway…

Ingredients:

  • 5 pcs Custard flavor Inipit
  • 5 pcs Dried Figs
  • 1/3 cup local brand all-natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 pack of semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • rainbow candy sprinkles

Procedure:

crumbled Inipit

Crumble the custard inipit until almost powdery in consistency.

Put the figs in a food processor and mix till it has a pasty consistency.

Add the peanut and the figs to the crumbled custard Inipit.

Chocolate-Nut Balls

Make small balls and freeze for an hour or two.

Melted chocolate

Melt the chocolate in the microwave using 1 minute/medium heat cycles. After every minute, get the microwaveable container and mix the chocolate. Repeat till all the chocolate pieces are melted and smooth.

Get the frozen choco-nut balls and insert a straw halfway in each of the balls.

Use a spoon to drip melted chocolate on the frozen choco-nut balls. Turn the straw around so that the excess chocolate will drip back in the bowl.

Sprinkle with rainbow candy sprinklers.

Put the Choco-Nut Cake Pops on a stand like a styro to dry. I used a baking bowl, put some clean and unused table rags inside, covered with an elastic plastic cover and inserted the straws through the plastic cover.
