The delicious chocolate balls are real mood enhancers. This is due to the wholemeal spelt flour, as it contains tryptophan, from which our body produces serotonin, a "happiness hormone". Dark chocolate also helps us to relax, thanks to the secondary plant substances contained in the high cocoa content as well as stomachsium, we can relax.

Cake-pops bring fun to the cake buffet with their colourful decorations, but they don't always have to be full of sugar. Why not try chopped nuts or very finely diced fruit instead of the chocolate shavings. A real eye-catcher is a mix of chopped pistachios and dried strawberries,
especially for children, because they are much smaller than a piece of cake or pie. You can reduce the amount of snacking unnoticed.

Preparation steps


Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F


For the cake pops: Chop chocolate coarsely and melt over hot, not boiling water. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Mix butter with sugar and vanilla sugar until white and creamy. Gradually stir in eggs and milk. Mix flour with baking powder, sift over butter mixture and whisk thoroughly into batter. Add melted chocolate.

Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake for 25-30 minutes in a preheated oven, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven, let cool briefly, separate cake from pan and let cool completely.

Crumble cake in a bowl. Mix butter and sugar until creamy, add cream cheese, and knead with crumbled cake. Form small balls and roll each cake ball first in lemon juice, then in sprinkles. Press skewers into cake pops and serve.
