Easy Allergy Friendly Gluten-Free Cake Bites/Pops
I recently took over The Center For Food Allergy and Asthma Research Instagram. Follow them here so you can catch more of my demo takeovers. I tried to rush a few things last minute in this demo and showed you exactly what not to do. I always have fun with everyone. Keep reading for the full recipe.
1 prepared a day ahead allergy-friendly cake you can eat approx 9 inches.
Frosting of your choice and flavor that you can eat You will only need a few tablespoons
1 bag of chocolate chips or candy melts you can eat
Candy/cookie Sticks 12 to24
Allergy-Friendly sprinkles you can eat (optional)
Small ice cream or cookie scoop
Let’s get started!
Crumble cake into a large mixing bowl
Add in two tablespoons of frosting. I prefer to use my hands to judge the texture; mix the cake and icing until it is slightly crumbly. Add More icing by the tablespoon if needed. You can also take a sample bite to judge if the taste and texture are to your liking.
Scoop out your cake balls and rest on a plate or parchment-lined tray. Refrigerate for around 2 hours. Your cake balls must be cold to keep from falling apart!
Melt your candy or chips over a double boiler, or you can use the microwave. If microwaving, put chips in a microwave-safe dish, microwave for 15 to 30 seconds at a time, and mix. Repeat until chips are melted smoothly
Take out your cake balls and roll a bit to smooth out any lumps. Next, take a candy stick and dip the tip into the candy/chocolate melt. Insert the stick into the cake ball. Then after 30 seconds, dip the cake ball into the candy melt. Swirl and tap gently to remove excess.
Add sprinkles or other decorations before the melt has hardened. Then, you can allow them to set up in a styrofoam brick or box.
Suppose you don’t have the time or patients to wait for the candy to set. Then use festive cupcake holders, allow the cake pops to harden in the liners, and add sprinkles.
Can, put in the refrigerator or freezer to speed up the setting process
Store in an air-tight container single layer, or cover with plastic candy bags and ribbon for a festive treat—stores for approx five days.
