Method

Today we will show you how to make heart-shaped popsicle cakes with marble designs and crystals without special molds.

Such a dessert will be perfect for a Valentine’s Day.

Let’s get started!

Instructions

  1. As always, start with the base: mix the sponge biscuit with any crème (in the recipe we have banana biscuit, coconut and cream cheese). There are no definite proportions; look at the consistency - the workpiece should be easy to mold and not to fall apart.
  2. With the help of hands and a skewer, we give the workpiece a heart shape. Try to make the base as even as possible; the final result depends on this intermediate point.
  3. Fix the stick at the base using the chocolate (insert it halfway). Place the blanks in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
  4. Melt the white chocolate, and paint it white with titanium dioxide. Add the Mycryo at 35C (95F), 1-2% of the chocolate mass.
  5. Paint a third of the mass in pink with a fat-soluble dye. Pour the rest of the chocolate into a tall glass.

Crystals

Make the crystals: melt the isomalt, and paint it pink with a drop of dye; pour it onto a silicone mat, and let it set for a couple of minutes. Select the isomalt into a thick shard using a mat; beautiful crystals will not come out of the flat form of isomalt. Let it cool, and break it into small crystals.

Marble design

  1. For the marble design: pour the pink chocolate into white chocolate in parts, and dip the frozen popsicles; tap off and slightly clean the bottom. From the second / third time you will understand how to make a beautiful pattern. Pour the colored chocolate after every 3 cakes.
  2. Immediately sprinkle the cakes with crystals, and only then take the next blank.
  3. Point out the "edges" of the crystals with dense golden powder diluted in vodka. Make golden splashes.

Such popsicle cakes can be stored in the freezer for up to a month.

Enjoy!
