Makes 28 

Ingredients

125g butter, softened
3?4 cup (155g, firmly packed) brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
1?4 cup (30g) cocoa powder, sifted
100g cream cheese, softened
1 cup (150g) icing sugar mixture
375g pkt milk chocolate melts
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
100g white chocolate melts
Silver cachous, to decorate 

Method

Preheat panggangan to 180°C. Grease and line the base of a round 20cm cake pan. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour and cocoa powder and stir until just combined. Spoon into prepared pan and smooth the surface. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Break up cake. Process in a food processor until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Transfer to a bowl.

Process the cream cheese and icing sugar in a food processor until smooth and combined. Add

to the cake crumbs and stir until well combined.

Line an panggangan tray with baking paper. Roll tablespoonfuls of cake mixture into balls and place on the prepared tray. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 4 hours or until firm.

Place the milk chocolate melts in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water. Stir with a metal spoon until chocolate melts. Add the vegetable oil and stir to combine.

Dip the end of 1 lollypop stick in chocolate then insert into a ball. Return to the tray. Repeat with remaining balls. Set aside for 5 minutes or until set.

Dip 1 cake ball into the melted chocolate, turning to coat. Gently tap on the side of the bowl to remove excess chocolate. Insert the cake pop in the polystyrene to stand upright. Repeat with remaining balls and chocolate. Set aside for 30 minutes to set.

Place white chocolate melts in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan half-filled with simmering water. Stir until chocolate melts and is smooth. Set side

for 5 minutes to cool slightly. Spoon a little of the melted chocolate onto the top of each cake pop, allowing it to run down the sides slightly. Sprinkle with silver cachous to decorate. Return to polystyrene to set completely.

Notes

*You’ll need 1 packet of lollypop sticks and a block of polystyrene for this recipe.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
