Tips for the perfect cake pops!
Cake pops can be a little tricky, especially when they are made from healthy ingredients. So these tested and true tips will help you from not making the same mistakes I did, lol.
The Fridge is your friend:
My Mistake #1: Yup I was super excited to dip and decorate my cake pops without giving them time to set in the fridge. Well they crumbled off the stick.
So Make sure you refrigerate them for at least 1 hour before decorating them with chocolate and sprinkles.
White chocolate works like glue:
My Mistake #2: Putting the sticks in and then placing them in the fridge and then I went to dip them in the melted chocolate and they fell off the stick. Total fail.
So make sure to melt a small amount of white chocolate 1/8 cup. Poke a hole in the formed ball and then dip your stick into the white chocolate. Place back into the hole, refrigerate for at least 1 hour. This will prevent your sticks from falling out when it comes time to decorate.
Stand your cake pops up for perfect drying.
My Mistake #3: Laying the cake pops down after dipping into the white chocolate. They don’t look very pretty when you do this.
So make sure to get a cardboard box of any kind. Poke seven spaced out holes the size of the diameter of the pop stick and then place your cake pops in the holes for easy, beautiful drying.
We hope you enjoy making and eating these healthy protein cake pops! They were a huge hit at our house.
