Tiramisu Lollipops

Wasn't sure where to post this dessert.

A while back, on Food Network, there was a chef (at a Rockefeller Center restaurant? in New York) that created dessert lollipops from assorted pastry/cakes. The recipes were not given. (Think you could purchase them via mail order). Looked high and low & this was the closest idea I found. I wouldn't want to wreck a tiramisu, but think the basic idea could be applied, let's say using cheese cake, brownies, carrot cake (home made or store bought)...or any cake recipe. Another thought -- instead of a melon baller, cut the cake in little squares - or strawberries dipped in chocolate lollipops.


Tiramisu Lollipops

1 store-bought tiramisu
24 white candy or popsicle sticks
8 ounces chocolate chips, or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
Cocoa Powder, for dusting

Using a melon baller or mini ice cream scoop, spoon out balls from the tiramisu to create small circles of cake. Place them on a cookie sheet and stick a popsicle stick in each ball of cake. Freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave on 50% power in 1 minute increments. Pour the chocolate into a deep but narrow container to aid in the dipping process. Dip the frozen tiramisu lollipops into the melted chocolate to cover on all sides.

Place the lollipops on a cookie sheet covered with waxed paper and return them to the freezer to harden.
Dust the lollipops with cocoa powder before serving.

Makes about 2 dozen lollipops

Sounds like a fun idea for a dessert buffet!

You can also buy cake pans in the shape of popsicles. They look a lot like the cookie pans for making round cookies on a stick (Wilton and Baker's Catalogue have them). They'd be fun for a more casual dessert for kids.

Thanks, PA. Hope it airs again on Food Network. The flavors sounded so yummy & a new little twist for, perhaps a dinner party too. (Bet some marbelled cheesecake would be a yummy pop too.) Lots of room for experimenting. The popsicle trays reminded me of a salmon mousee mousee type appetizer. I'll go look at my files & try to post under appetizers.
