Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! Tomorrow is New Years Eve and I’m so excited! I’m gonna be celebrating with friends and family, and it got me thinking, what kind of yummy treat should I share with everybody? And the 1st thing that came to mind was from the video game Kingdom Hearts There’s a fruit in the game called a Paopu fruit which is a star fruit and it is said that if you share it with somebody else, that your destinies are intertwined forever

And I thought, dawwww!!! How cute? This is a little treat that I want to bring to New Years to share with my friends and family, or if you have a significant other, it’s a very romantic idea So today we are gonna be making champagne Paopu Pops! Let’s get started! The things you will need, will be: 3 cups of regular flour, 6 egg whites, 2 cups of sugar, yellow melting chocolates, green melting chocolates, 3/4 cup of butter, 3/4 teaspoon of baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, 1-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla You’re also gonna need 1 bottle of champagne and if you would like to make the recipe non-alcoholic, in the less spirited version, you can use sparkling apple cider as a replacement For the structure of these pops you’re gonna need a star pop mold I’ll put a link down below to where I found these, and some lollipop sticks! Let’s put it all together! The 1st thing that we’re gonna do is get a medium sized bowl and we are gonna combine our butter and sugar

Cream the 2 together until it’s light and fluffy now we’re gonna beat in these 6 egg whites and our vanilla extract We’re gonna mix it together until it’s smooth and combined and then we’re gonna set it off to the side Now, in our 2nd bowl, we are gonna combined our dry ingredients We’re gonna combined our flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder

Then you’re just gonna get a whisk and whisk it all together Doo-doo-da-dew-dee-dee-doo! Now we’ve got our dry ingredients, our wet ingredients, and we’re gonna need 2 cups of champagne, and this is where you can use the apple cider if you’d like But we’ve got our bottle of bubbly and we’ve got to pop it open So… Oh I’m not the best at this, but hopefully it will go better than last year Time to pop the bubbly! Just give it a twist, and then I think it just pops off then doesn’t it? How do you? AAAAWWWHHHHHHHH! OK! I should probably google how to do that better

AAAAWWWWWWHHHHHHH! I think I’m experiencing a heart attack right about now Now we are gonna combined our dry ingredients and the champagne into the wet mixture, alternating So first I’m gonna start with a little bit of dry, and then, mix it up! Then we’re gonna add a little bit of cham-pang and then mix it up again And we’re just gonna continue to alternate the champagne and the dry ingredients until everything is well blended together Now that we have our champagne cake batter all ready, you’re gonna take a cake pan and you’re gonna take a little bakin’ grease, spray the pan

Now, take piece of parchment paper, and you’re gonna place it on top, and then spray it one more time Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! Just remember, it’s grease your pan, parchment paper, and then grease again You really don’t want this cake batter to stick to your pan Now you’re gonna grab your batter, pour it in… Weeeee! There we go! Now you can take your spatula and just smooth out the cake batter, just so it will bake evenly Now you’re gonna set your oven to 350 and bake for 30 minutes

While the cake is baking, we’re gonna make some champagne frosting, The things you will need, will be: 3 cups of powdered sugar, 3 sticks and 2 tablespoons of butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, a pinch of salt and 1/4 cup of champagne Or, for a non-spirited version, the apple cider The 1st thing you’re gonna do is take your butter, and put it in your big mixer And then we’re gonna mix together for 8 minutes on a medium speed Pfft! Pfft! Now that our butter is whipped, we’re gonna add the rest of our ingredients and then we’re gonna mix together for about 3 minutes

So you’re gonna add your powdered sugar, our vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and our champagne And mix it up, it’s more time to dance! Oh my god! On a low speed! Now that we have our frosting ready and our cake just came out of the oven, we are gonna combine these to make our cake pop mixture The 1st thing that you’re gonna do is take a sharp cutting knife and you’re just gonna cut your cake into sections Pick up 2 pieces of cake, rub ‘em together, and they’ll make a bunch of crumbs in the big bowl You can also get in there, use your hands

Once you’ve crumbed your whole cake, now we are gonna add our frosting in here and mix it until it’s all 1 consistency Over here, I’ve heated up our chocolate melts and I have a little plastic baggie that I’m putting in a cup, so that it’ll be a little easier to pour in there Fold down the sides, and then you’re gonna pour in your yellow chocolate To make these pops, we’re gonna make them in 3 layers, we’re gonna do the base of chocolate, and then cake pop and then chocolate! So it’s like a chocolate, cake pop, chocolate sandwich I like to put them in a bag because I have a little bit more control

And you’re just gonna put a thin layer, make sure it covers all the surface on the bottom And you can either use this toothpick to push up on the sides, you want all the edges to be covered all the way around, or you can use a little bakin’ brush Then you’re gonna do this to all of your stars and put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes to chill, and then we’ll add our cake pop mix! Just took this out of the freezer, it’s chilled, and now we’re gonna take a little scoop of our cake pop batter, scoop it in here Then you’re just gonna press it flat Now you’re gonna put in the lollipop sticks, so you’re just gonna line them up at the end, press it in

And now for the final layer we’re gonna add a little bit of chocolate on top and pop these back in the freezer for about 10 minutes to chill I just took these pops out of the freezer and I heated up my green melting chocolates, put ‘em in a plastic bag with a number 2 tip at the end, and now we’re gonna draw on the little leafs on top Aren’t they so cute? They look just like the fruit from the video game, I’m so excited! Ta-da! Here are our Champagne Paopu Pops, I hope you guys liked ‘em these were so much fun to make! I just thought that they were the perfect treat for New Years, because you share them with people you love, and you are intertwined for always!
