The very first batch of Christmas tree cake pops by me and C.C.! The dough tastes like gingerbread with a hint of tiramisu. We made three different icing flavors: strawberry, milk chocolate and vanilla. They turned out delicious! This was a very nice little Christmas project for me and my dear little sister C.C..

Cake Pops Recipe

You'll need:

- 1 dl of brown sugar
- 1 dl of farine sugar
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar (you can also use 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract)
- 4 dl of wheat flour
- 1,5 dl of sour milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 dl of cream
- 125 g of melted butter
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 tea spoon of baking powder
- a pinch of cinnamon

- about 50 g of tiramisu flavored sour cream (or choose another flavor) 
- 100 g of natural flavored cream cheese

- chocolate or Candy Melts of your choice for the icing
- sprinkles etc. for decorating

Mix the wheat flour with baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and sugars well. Add the eggs, cream, sour milk and butter. Mix well using a spoon. Pour the dough into a cake mould of any kind. Bake in the lowest level of the oven in 175 C for 45-60 minutes. The cake should be moist so be careful and check the texture every once in a while with a fork or a stick. 

Let the cake cool down.

Break the cake into tiny crumbs in a bowl using your hands. In a small bowl mix the tiramisu sour cream with the cream cheese to make it nice and even, then combine it with the cake crumbs using your hands again.

Make tight balls out of the dough, then press them into the cake pop moulds and put them into the freezer for just a little while, less than 10 minutes. Take each piece of dough out of the mould and melt the chocolate for the icing, use a mug etc. . Dip a cake pop stick into the icing, then push it a few centimetres inside the piece of dough, repeat with all of the Christmas tree shaped pieces. Then put them into the fridge for ten minutes and then dip each cake pop into the icing so that it's covered, tap the excess amount off. Quickly decorate them before the icing gets hard. The Candy Melts especially are extremely fast when it comes to drying. Put the cake pops into the fridge until you serve them!

I recommend the strawberry flavored chocolate for the icing, it tastes and smells extremely delicious! The pink ones were the most popular ones among my friends. 

You can make these a few days beforehand if you like!
