Nutritional values

Ground nuts give the cake dough a great taste and are full of healthy, essential omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for the heart and blood vessels. 

To prevent the cake mixture from sticking to your hands when forming the balls, you can moisten your hands with a little water. The Cake-Pops taste best if they are eaten the same day.

Preparation steps


Preheat the oven to 350°F.


For the batter, beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Gradually mix in the eggs and the salt. Mix the flour, nuts and baking powder. Alternately stir the flour mixture and the buttermilk into the egg mixture. Pour the mixture into a lined springform pan and smooth. Bake for about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, allow to cool and crumble the cake into a bowl.

For the cream, beat the butter and powdered sugar until creamy. Stir in the cream cheese. Knead into the cake crumbs. Shape the dough into small balls, cover and chill for 1 hour.


To decorate, coarsely chop the chocolate. Melt the chocolate over a hot, not boiling, water bath and cool slightly. Set aside some of the white chocolate. Divide the remaining chocolate into two portions. Color one portion black and the other orange. Dip the cake balls into the white chocolate and let dry.

Pierce the balls with wooden sticks. Dip some of the cake balls in the orange chocolate and sprinkle with green sugar to make pumpkins. Dip some of the balls in the black chocolate and decorate with chocolate sprinkles and licorice to make spiders. Paint ghost faces on the remaining white cake pops. Allow to dry completely before serving.
