Minichefs: adventures with the new Zoku chocolate station

The Zoku family has just got a whole lot bigger with the arrival of the new Zoku Chocolate Station. We let our Minichefs loose in the kitchen with this nifty tool and a heap of chocolate sprinkled fun followed. If you’ve already got a Zoku Quick Pop Maker this tool is a great way to add chocolate shells and sprinkles to your lollies. Check it out in action.
Tools required:
Zoku Quick Pop Maker
Zoku Chocolate Station
Microwaveable bowl or double-boiler
Wooden spoon
Measuring cups

Time taken – 15 minutes
Number of children – 6
Ingredients

Zoku lollies of your choice:
Chocolate and vanilla lollies work well with dark and white chocolate in the dipping station. We used Super-M milkshakes but yoghurt and milo also work well – whatever takes your fancy. For more ideas, check out these Zoku recipes and tips.

For the dark chocolate dip:
1/3 cup coconut oil
2/3 cup dark chocolate

For the white chocolate dip:
1/3 cup coconut oil
2/3 cup white chocolate

For the sprinkles:
Be as creative as you like. We used chopped nuts, Coco pops and lots of different sprinkles. Use the sprinkle trays to keep the decorations contained.

Method:

1. Prepare your Zoku Pops with your filling of choice. Zoku pops take approximately 7-9 minutes to freeze. Make sure you place your Zoku Quick Pop Maker in the freezer at least 24 hours before use for best results.
2. Place your chocolate chips and coconut oil into a double boiler and heat until melted and smooth. Alternatively, melt the chocolate in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds, then remove and stir. Repeat the process until the chocolate is smooth and creamy. Once the chocolate has melted, stir in the coconut oil.
3. Remove your Zoku pops from the Quick Pop Maker.
4. Pour the chocolate into the Zoku Chocolate Station and briefly dip the frozen pops into the chocolate.
5. Immediately dip your pop into your sprinkles and get drizzling.
Et voilà. Dipped, drizzled, chocolaty fun.
