Canada Day GF Cake Pops: 3ten.ca

Canada Day cake pops! These little bite sized beauties are not only gluten free, they’re chocolate deliciousness. a fun and festive way to celebrate being Canadian. Okay, let’s get baking.

Ingredients

  • box of gluten free cake mix
  • ingredients for the cake mix
  • heaping cup chocolate icing
  • 1 cup of gluten free chocolate melts
  • 1/2 cup of red and white sprinkles
  • coffee stir sticks

First, make the cake mix according to the box. I made it in a 9 inch dish to lessen the amount of edges (aka, hard crumbly bits) that would end up in the cake pops. You can always cut off the edges, but that seems wasteful to me – especially when I’m down to the last cake pop and wish there was just one or two more.

Once the cake is done, take it out of the oven and let it cool for about 30 minutes. Then, crumble the cake to bits in a bowl and add in the chocolate icing and mix well – like really well until it’s all combined.

Next, get out a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Time to get messy! Roll out the cake pops into 1 inch balls and place them on the baking sheet. Try and make them all the same size – I ended up with 28.

Once the cake pops are all rolled out, place them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. While that’s happening, count out your coffee stir sticks and listen to your favourite podcast. Mine? Beyond the Grid – yup, bet you didn’t know I was an F1 fan, did ya? Ferrari all the way.

Okay, once the 30 minutes is close to being up, melt your chocolate either in the microwave or over a double boiler. Then, take the pops out and dip the coffee stir stick into the chocolate and then into the cake pop – you need the chocolate to act as the ‘glue’ to hold in place. If this takes a while, pop them back in the freezer. If you’ve moved fast, then continue on.

Cover each cake pop with melted chocolate – I found the easiest way to do this was ‘painting’ the cake pop with the back of a spoon – if dipping into the chocolate works for you, then do that. Gently shake the excess chocolate from the pop and then cover with sprinkles. Set back on the parchment lined baking sheet and keep going until all are done.

When they’re all done, freeze again for about 20 minutes and then you’re ready to eat! They’re so good right out of the freezer, but good at room temperature, too.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Canada Day – cheers and eat up these Canada Day cake pops to celebrate.
