Method

Strawberry toffee pops
  • 1
    Push lollipop sticks or skewers, through the green top, three-quarters of the way into the top of each strawberry.
  • 2
    Finely chop nuts; place in a small bowl. Line a work surface with a long sheet of baking paper.

    Meanwhile, melt chocolate in a small heatproof bowl over a small saucepan of simmering water (don't let the water touch base of bowl).
