Superpower Pops | My Baba

Preparation time: 30 minutes plus cooling and chilling

Cooking time: 5 minutes (to melt the chocolate)

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 200g (7oz) Dr. Oetker White Fine Cook’s Chocolate
  • 65g (2 ½ oz) Crisp rice cereal
  • 5ml (1 tsp) Dr. Oetker Valencian Orange Natural Extract
  • Dr. Oetker Red, Blue, Green and Yellow Gel Food Colours

Method

  1. Break up the White Chocolate into pieces and put in a heatproof bowl. Set the bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water to melt. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Put the rice cereal in a large bowl and scrape the chocolate on top. Mix in a little, then add the Orange Extract and continue mixing until all the rice is coated in Chocolate.
  3. Transfer one quarter of the chocolatey cereal into another bowl – put the remaining mixture back over the water to keep it soft. Add about 20 drops Red Gel Food colour and mix very well until evenly coloured.
  4. Spoon a heaped teaspoonful into each of 6 x 90ml (6 tbsp) ice lolly moulds and press down gently using the end of a wooden spoon.
  5. Transfer another portion of the cereal mix into a bowl and work in about 30 drops Blue Gel Food colour to make a bright shade. Pile on top of the red layer and pack down well as above.
  6. Colour half the remaining mixture with 30 drops Green Gel Food colour, and the final batch with 35 drops Yellow Gel Food colour. Layer each colour as above.
  7. Push 6 wooden lolly sticks into the mixture. Chill for at least 2 hours until solid.
  8. To serve, carefully dip the moulds in hot water for a few seconds and gently pull the pop from the mould. The pops are now ready to serve and enjoy!

TIP

Try flavouring the pop mix with Dr Oetker Caramel Flavour, Natural Vanilla Extract or Sicilian Lemon as alternatives.
