My favorite part of Super Bowl Sunday is the food. I love preparing healthy gluten free Super Bowl snacks for my boys and all of their friends.
I would love to say that the cute little gluten free cake pops above were assembled by my children. However, I made them, and as you can see my cake and candy decorating skills are on par with those of a 10 year old. Or maybe a 6 year old. In any event, when I was a child I loved crafty little projects like candy making and such. Obviously, I haven’t had much practice since back then.
I hope you all enjoy these gluten free Super Bowl Cake pops! If you make them, please take a photo, as I would like to do a post sometime soon with all of your beautiful gluten free football cake pops.
Bake Chocolate Cake as directed on page 84 of The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook
Cool cake completely
Once cooled, crumble ½ of cake into a large bowl
, making sure there are no large pieces
Mix raspberry fruit spread into crumbled cake, use back of a large wooden spoon
Mixture will be moist enough to roll into 1-inch balls and still hold a round shape
After making balls, squish into an oval shape and pinch each end to make footballs
Place footballs on a parchment paper
lined plate and place in freezer for at least an hour
Melt dark chocolate in a very small saucepan
, over very low heat
One at a time, dip about ½-inch of the tip of paper lollipop sticks
into melted chocolate
Insert the lollipop stick straight into a (football) cake ball, no more than halfway through
Holding stick with (football) cake ball attached, dip entire cake ball into melted chocolate, until covered
Make sure chocolate coating meets at base of lollipop stick; this helps secure cake ball to stick
Twirl any excess chocolate coating off the cake pop so it is evenly coated
Place lollipop stick into a styrofoam block
; allow chocolate coating to dry
Pipe white chocolate stitches onto football cake pops
Serve your healthier, gluten-free Super Bowl Cake Pops and wow your guests!
