Valentine’s Day Cake Pop Recipe
Yield: Approximately 15 pops
- 1 Cup fine almond flour
- 1 Cup pitted Medjool dates (about 10)
- 1 Infusions bag Tulsi Cinnamon Rose
- 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 Tablespoons unsweetened vanilla plant milk
- ¼ Cup desiccated coconut
- ¼ Cup almond butter
- Candy melts for dipping (8 ounces)
- Sprinkles, to decorate
- To serve: lollipop sticks
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until thoroughly combined. Mixture may be slightly crumbly.
- Transfer to a bowl and use a spatula to press into a sticky dough.
- Roll into approximately 15 1-inch balls and place in the freezer to firm up for at least one hour.
- When the balls are firm, set up a box with holes or cake pop stand and have sprinkles ready.
- Gently melt the candy coating according to package directions or choose to either melt in a double boiler, stirring after each until completely melted.
- Insert a stick about halfway into the center of a cake pop. Dunk the pop in the melted coating until submerged and turn to evenly coat while letting excess drip off.
- Before the chocolate coating hardens, decorate each pop with sprinkles. Push the pops into your stand, or another holder to keep them upright while setting. If the balls seem to be sliding off the sticks while dipping, feel free to dunk without the sticks, let rest on a tray while the coating hardens, and insert the stick into the flatter side once set.
- Repeat with each cake pop. If the chocolate hardens, you may need to carefully reheat.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge, bringing to room temperature before serving.
