once you pop...


For Poog's birthday we went the route of the "pop"...and super-fun it was too!!!

Poog loves orange (being ginger) and i was determined to make up some orange pops...however as we don't live in America where one can purchase "candy-melt" in all colours, i had to get creative with food colouring and white chocolate.

Seemed like a good idea until i got to the third drip of food colouring and the melted chocolate started to separate....then it hit me....
WHAT AM I DOING???? You can't add water-based liquid to melted chocolate!!!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!

Well, much rapid strirring later, the chocolate sortof recovered....albeit becoming super-thick and sticky...hence the uneven texture of the orange cake balls!!!!

O well.....i'll remember that one for next time! And there will be a next time because you know what they say..."Once you pop......."
