Chocolate Cake pops is a sinfully chocolatey recipe with every layer brining a different texture and sweetness to the palate. The outer layer is creamy dark chocolate with middle layer consisting of soft-spongy chocolate cake and the core consisting of combination of chopped nuts and melt in the mouth Nutella (Who does not love Nutella? 😀 ). Each layer brings it own taste on the palate and yet goes so well with each other like a symphony.
This dessert not only tastes splendid but looks absolutely delightful too. Kids or adults are surely going to get attracted to it merely by the looks of it. Now comes the actual part (of course for which you are reading this post :p), how to make these cake pops. Many people have the perception that if the dish looks too good or fancy, then definitely it must be tough to make. This Chocolate cake pops recipe is going to change your viewpoint as it is so easy to make and that too within no time.
A good news for all those having “Bake-o-phobia” (phobia of baking, yes people do have it!!), this dessert is going to be NO-BAKE recipe. I have met lots of people who loves cakes or cookies but are constantly struggling with their ovens or concepts of baking like temperature settings, preheating or proportions etc. . This recipe will definitely save you from all that hassle and you can easily whip up some interesting dessert for yourself and your family. Also, the recipe is EGGLESS and made using Whole Wheat Flour.
For making these, first of all we will prepare a mixture of Nutella and chopped nuts. Then we will prepare a batter which would be slightly thicker than normal cake batter. This would be poured in Appe pan (which is also called “Paniyaram” pan). The mixture of nutella and nuts would be dropped in the centre and covered with some more batter. Once these chocolate balls are ready, they would be allowed to cool done. We would be dipping them in melted hot chocolate and then drizzle some melted white chocolate. The garnishing on top is totally optional. You can consume the chocolate cake pops without this step and still you would love them.
The dessert is ideal for serving in kids birthday parties or friends/family get together as you can make it well in advance and store it in fridge. For checking out other party recipes, click here.

Many people raise the query on how and when to flip the appe in pan. It is very simple. Keep the knife handy when making appe. After 1 or 2 minutes of pouring the batter, check the edges using a knife. Don’t let the entire appe cook completely; the flipping should be done when the centre is still wet. Use two knives if you are a beginner and be swift while turning them.
