Cake Batter Cake Pops
A couple of weeks ago I made these for my best friends birthday
Gracie’s Cake Batter Blondies
They made my entire house smell like yummy cake batter, and I was sad I couldn’t have any. I knew then that I wanted to recreate to make them vegan and gluten free.
I’d forgotten I wanted to make them until a few days ago when I was grocery shopping and trying to decide what I wanted to use as filling for my cake pops I was planning on making this week for class. I saw a box of GF and Vegan yellow cake mix and immediately knew I wanted to use blondies as my cake filling!
I used this recipe for the cake filling, subbing with this for the cake mix
and then Ener-G Egg replacer for the egg.
1 batch of Gracie’s Cake Batter Blondies
2c. Vegan Chocolate Chips (I used 365 brand)
Lollipop Sticks (you have to eat a bunch of lollipops to get these….jk I got mine from sur la table, but I’m sure you can get them at any specialty baking/craft store)
Make a batch of Cake Batter Blondies, and let sit and cool completely. After it is done cooling, roll into little balls and place into the freezer over night.
After they are done chilling, melt some chocolate and stick the tip of a lollipop stick in the chocolate before pressing it into the cake. It should dry pretty fast because the cake was cold.
When that cools, gently roll the cake pop in chocolate, using a spoon to help you cover it all (note these get messy, hence the chocolate on my fingernails, and hands)
Roll or top with sprinkles if you desire. Or if you are like me you can roll a few in sprinkles and then spill the rest on the floor. I sure hope my vacuum cleaner can taste the difference in organic sprinkles……
And that’s how you make cake pops! A lot easier then I thought it would be, but it was also messier too. You win some, you lose some, haha.
These are in no way sugar-free, so after eating my failed attempts I got sent strait into a sugar coma and had such a hard crash I needed a nap. It was actually kinda bizarre for that to happen because I used to be the sugar queen.
Was it worth it? Yes.
This recipe will hopefully be featured on one of my absolute favorite blogs. What blog is that Chocolate Covered Katie! Check out her featured blogger post!
Have you ever had or made Cake Pops?
Do you ever spill stuff in the kitchen?
