I made these on Good Friday - all the shops were shut so I just used what I had in the cupboards.
I took photos along the way so here we go:
Here's what you need:
white choc melts
Rainbow choc chips - very small for the eyes.
dessicated (or as I prefer to think of it - desecrated!) coconut.
You also need some white fondant and cake pop mixture.
I use mud cake with ganache mixed in.
Here's my mug cake and ganache mixture.
You need a tablespoonful - flatten the cake pop mixture across the top of the spoon - this is plenty.
These are very rich so you don't want them too big.
Roll into a ball then into a "barrel" shape.
Here's a few on a plate ready for dipping.
Using a bamboo skewer pierce them into the top and at one end.
Melt your white choc in a bowl (over hot water or in the microwave) and put the coconut in another bowl.
Dip your cake pop into the white chocolate but leave a small area around the stick uncovered. This is where we will attach the head.
knock off the excess chocolate and roll into the coconut covering the white chocolate.
Use a fork to extract the stick from the cake pop.
Here's a bunch of headless sheep!
Take a piece of white fondant and make the above shape. Press it onto the body.
Press with your fingers to "round" the fondant onto the sheep's body.
Using a knife make the above marks for a mouth and nose.
Using your melted chocolate, glue two of the rainbow choc chips on for eyes.
Here's a herd of sighted but deaf sheep!
Make two long sausage shapes for ears. Add a bit of melted chocolate for glues and attach the ears. Bend them down and pinch the ends slightly.
Here's a herd of sheep (finally!)
I made one with horns, coloured a bit of coconut green and put them out to pasture.
I think they could be better if the fondant was coloured a pale brown or they had a bit of blush in their cheeks.
Here's a sheep that went wrong! Looks like a guinea pig!
Here's a whole bunch of very baaaad sheep!
These ones just didn't work out at all! grin.
Mr and Mrs Cake-pop Sheep.
(they were yummy by the way!).
Have a great day!
