How to cook Easter Lollipops with your coffee maker.

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.

Time

  • 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 1 dollop of butter
  • 1 bag of marshmallows
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 1 bowl of Coco Pops
  • Stuff to decorate the lollipops with

Instructions

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.

Coffee maker cooking on Swedish TV

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.

Zappa helped me with the preparations (sold the candy + balloon animals after the performance to collect money for Musikhjälpen).

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?”
