An Original Recipe by Lorraine Elliott

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 0 minutes

Makes 18 clown pops

  • 300g/10.6ozs white chocolate
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 cups/360g/12.7ozs pure icing sugar, sifted
  • Red and black food colouring gel
  • A small amount of red fondant for the nose
  • Pop sticks
  • Skull mold

Halloween Recipes

Step 1 - Melt the chocolate in a microwave or a double boiler. Pour into the skeleton chocolate mold and place the pop sticks in the cavity (you may need to trim the sticks if they are too long). Gently tap the mold against the counter to remove any small air bubbles - if there are any, they will rise to the surface. Allow to set completely.

Step 2 - Make the royal icing by mixing the egg white with the icing sugar. Add a tiny amount of lemon juice or water to get the consistency that you want (one that holds a line). Take about 5 tablespoons of the icing and colour that black and take another 5 tablespoons and colour it red and leave the rest white. Fill a small piping with the red royal icing and do the same for the black and white.

Step 3 - Remove the chocolate pops from the mold. Draw hair on the sides of the skull - Pennywise has a little hair around the back too so draw a little royal icing there too. Draw mouth so that it is open. Take the black royal icing pen and draw eyebrows and the outline of the eyes and fill in the middle of the mouth. Once the red and black icing has set, take the white royal icing pen and draw teeth but keep gaps between the teeth so that they look a bit rotting. And they say that Halloween isn't a nice time! Fancy that! ;)
