Bajadera. What is it? Well - that's a fantastic, last second idea which always works, always tastes delicious as it is chocolate sweet, soft and moist. 
I do recommend, especially when you have no time and your oven is tired as it is a non-baking recipe ;)
But - if You have time and enjoy baking, decorating, creating sweet wonders - see also Bajadera Reindeers.
Quite changed recipe comes from this website.

  • 400g of dried pound cake (preferably lemon or vanilla flavoured)
  • 120g of mascarpone cheese
  • 80g of nutella
  • 350g of milk chocolate
  • favourite mincemeat (including for example nuts, almonds; or  baking cocoa)
  • some plastic small sticks
  • sprinkles for decoratation

Optional ingredients:
  • 10-25ml of Rum
  • dried fruit - but in very small pieces

  1. If your pound cake isn't dried enough, it is a good idea to crumble it into very small pieces and put it in the preheated oven(over 180C) for a couple of minutes.
  2. Take a mixer and it's bowl. Put mascarpone cheese and nutella inside. Mix till smooth.
  3. Put dried pound cake to the bowl and mix everything till smooth. 
  4. Here is the time to add and mix optional ingredients if desired.
  5. Cover with foil and cool down in the freezer for 45 minutes.
  6. During that time, prepare a rectangular bakewell pan or loaf tin or - something that you can put in your freezer. Put some baking paper on its bottom.
  7. Take the dough out from the freezer and start making small balls, put each of them in previously prepared pan/tin.
  8. Put back in the freezer for another 30 minutes.
  9. During that time prepare small paper muffin cases and sprinkles around you.
  10. Also, take a pot, put chocolate (in small pieces) inside and melt on a very low heat.
  11. Take one ball from the freezer, dip 1/3 of a stick inside a ball and dip in the chocolate, so that it covers the entire ball, take out from the chocolate, wait till the excess of chocolate falls down.
  12. As the ball is very cold, the chocolate will stiffen on it very fast, so as soon as you take it out from the chocolate pot, take out the stick, put it on a muffin case and decorate.
  13. Store finished bajaderas in the fridge.
  14. Bon Appetit! ;)
