This didn’t turn out quite as I had imagined. In my mind it would be super sweet lollipops shaped like cute easter bunnies and perfectly formed eggs. I wanted my nails to match the colorful feather decorations, but the only thing that matches is the dirt I got under my nails and the egg lollipop that looks like dog shit.
But it tastes better than it looks (I actually think it’s a quite common and popular recipe). That is if you like the taste of pure sugar.
As you can see, my fingers all cramped up when I tried to show off my (un)matching nails.
- 1 dollop of butter
- 1 bag of marshmallows
- 100 g dark chocolate
- 1 bowl of Coco Pops
- Stuff to decorate the lollipops with
Start your coffee maker. Melt butter in the carafe and add marshmallows. This will melt quite quickly, after like 20 minutes. Add chopped chocolate, stir, and add coco pops into the mixture when everything has melted. Turn off the coffee maker.
Pour the batter onto a baking sheet and flatten it. When it cools a little it’s time for you to start trying to form it like bunnies and eggs. Press a stick in the bottom and decorate it as well as you are able to.
Dan wasn’t sure it was going to melt… Pfff, you can cook everything with a coffee maker!

Now we’re off to Spain!
In Sweden we got a really popular and important charity radio/TV show this time of year called Musikhjälpen. I was super honored that I got invited this morning to cook christmas candy in my coffee maker. And whilst the candy was cooking I taught the hosts how to make balloon animals. Yup, balloon twisting is one of my other hobbies.
The candy I cooked in my coffee maker is called “Ischoklad” and is one of the most popular christmas candies in Sweden. I have no clue what it’s called in english so I just call it Christmas Chocolate! You will get a couple of different recipes of Christmas Chocolate the next few weeks, this is the simplest one.
Christmas Chocolate with peppermint
45 minutes + cooling
- 75g butter
- 200g dark chocolate
- Peppermint Bits (these can be excluded)
Start the coffee maker. Melt the butter in the can and then add the chocolate. Meanwhile, place some peppermint in the forms. Stir every now and then.
Pour the chocolate into the forms when everything is melted nice together. Turn off the coffeemaker.
Zappa helped me with the preparations (sold the candy + balloon animals after the performance to collect money for Musikhjälpen).
HE’S SO CUTE
Here’s some more pictures from this morning.
My title is: “Kaffekokarkock” = Coffee maker chef! And my name is misspelled, but that isn’t as important as the title anyway.
“Now the balloon artist Katja Wulff is here! She’s not only a balloon artist, but also a professional coffee maker chef. Yeah, why not?”
“Katja is teaching Kodjo how to make balloon animals.”
I gave Kodjo a balloon flower hat. ;)

I’m obsessed with caramel. Made lot’s of different coffee maker made caramel types but this is the one I fancy the most.
This recipe is “usually” called five minutes caramel, but if you make it in a coffee maker it’s called one hour caramel.
2 tbsp butter
1½ dl sugar
2 tbsp cacao
4 tbsp syrup
Put butter in the coffee maker can and start your coffee maker. When the butter is melted you can add the rest of the ingredients. Let it chug there for a while, approximately 45 minutes. Stir every now and then. It’s not supposed to have sugar crystals. Turn off the coffee maker when it’s done.
Pour the caramel onto for example oven paper. When it’s cooled down for a bit you can split it up with a knife and even wrap it into some forms. I never do that because i mouth it all instantly…
One of the problems with having three cats. They’re always cat photo bombing.
Coffee maker cook until the crystals are gone. And just a little bit more after that.
AAH!! It’s so yummie!
You want some?
