Vegan Chocolate Cake Pops

This vegan, paleo chocolate cake pop is rich and fudgy in the center, with a hard chocolatey exterior topped with chocolate flecks. It’s pretty much having a chocolate cake without a huge slice that always leaves you too full!

For the Cake

  • Roll into small, tight meatball-like shapes and place on a tray. 
  • Once all cake pops have been rolled out, let them sit in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  • Once the cake pops are set up, take a cake pop stick and dip it about a 1/4″ into melted chocolate. 
  • Place about halfway into the cake pop. 
  • Once all pops have been poked, place back in the freezer for 5 minutes to let the chocolate set up.
  • Have your melted 72% chocolate ready and start to dip the cake pops into it. 
  • Shake off the excess chocolate and then stick it with the pop right side up into styrofoam or cardboard before it completely dries.
  • Decorate with some small round sprinkles. Once set up, enjoy!
