Chocolate chip fudge cake pops

I loved making the leopard print cake pops, fruit cake pops and ice cream cake pops for recent events so when I needed to make a sweet treat for a friend's upcoming wedding anniversary party I knew they would fit the bill and I could make them in black and white with little pink cases to match his colour theme.

Additionally, I also decorated three of them in Hotel Chocolat white chocolate with aqua sugar crystals and put trimmed down, striped straws over the sticks as an idea for some cake pops for my Winter Wonderland dessert table.
