100g/4oz Madeira cake
100g Oreo cookies
100g bar milk chocolate, melted
200g bar white chocolate, melted
few Smarties and icing pens, to decorate
10 wooden skewers
½ small pumpkin or butternut squash, deseeded, to stand pops in


  1. Break the Madeira cake and cookies into the bowl of a food processor, pour in the melted milk chocolate and whizz to combine.
  2. Tip the mixture into a bowl, then use your hands to roll into about 10 walnut-sized balls. Chill for 2 hrs until really firm.
  3. Push a skewer into each ball, then carefully spoon the white chocolate over the cake balls to completely cover. Stand the cake pops in the pumpkin, then press a Smartie onto the surface while wet. Chill again until the chocolate has set. Before serving, using the icing pens, add a pupil to each Smartie and wiggly red veins to the eyeballs.
