Christmas Pudding Cake Pops!

Ok so it's mid November and we've got a while to go before we need to start thinking about Christmas, but sadly I am spending my first Christmas away this year and so would like to soak up any festive cheer I can in the next three weeks!
So I made cake pops... Christmas pudding cake pops. I've gotta say I've never fancied the ones made with cake mix crumbs and frosting coated in candy melts so I made up a slightly more sophisticated and rich recipe and wasn't disappointed. These are easy and they make such cute gifts tied up in little cellophane bags, my first batch went out this week, jinga jing jing ..Christmas is coming!!

 Make a tray of gooey brownies and let cool. Now cut into small 1 inch squares and roll in your palm briefly to make balls and then pop them on a tray and freeze for 20 minutes. 
Leave out to soften enough to push a lollypop stick in 1cm that's been dipped in a little melted chocolate. It may crack a little so just dab on a little more melted chocolate and because the brownie is cold the chocolate will set so quickly - like super glue!
 Now roll the pop in a bowl of melted chocolate and tap until all excess drips off.
 I stood my pops up in a jar of caster sugar but I suppose if you have a foam block or some polystyrene packaging that would work really well too.
 Oops this one didn't even get to the holly stage, well we're experimenting here so that means munching too.
 Sieve a cup of icing sugar into a bowl and slowly mix in drops of water until you get quite a thick, smooth icing. Spoon a little onto the top and drag down little bits with a toothpick and then before the icing dries pop on your holly leaves and berries and sprinkle with glitter. 
I left mine to dry properly overnight and they were still good in the morning no crackling or spoiling. These are so yummy and moist inside and let's admit it they are pretty cute too.
