From MeaghanGrettano.com, nut-free cake pops, dressed up for Mardi Gras!

  • Ingredients: 1 box vanilla cake, prepared (I used ½ of an Arrowhead Mills boxed cake mix)

    SunButter Organic (amount depends on how moist your cake is to start off; I used approximately 2 heaping spoonfuls)

    2 packages of white baking chocolate

    1½ Tbsp. cinnamon

    Yellow, green & purple sprinkles
  • Instructions: Prepare cake mix according to package directions. After cake is cooked and cooled, crumble half of it into a large mixing bowl.

    Crumbled cake mix is the base for these nut-free SunButter cake pops.

    Begin to add in the SunButter and cinnamon and mix well. The amount you add will depend on the moistness of your cake. I used two heaping spoonfuls.

    SunButter and cinnamon add just the right consistency and flavors for these nut-free cake pops.

    I mixed it in with my fingers as this simply works best! It’s a messy job but it’ll be so worth it! You want the consistency to be crumbly, yet formable. You want to be able to easily mold it into balls.

    SunButter moistens up premade cake for cake pops.

    Roll mixture into balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. I like to do this by hand. Makes approximately 20 cake balls but your amount will depend on how large or small you make them. Bite sized is best!

    Bite-sized cake pops, ready for the freezer, then for decorating!

    Place rolled cake balls in the freezer for about 15 minutes to chill them. This is an important step so that they won’t crumble and break in the warm, melted chocolate. Don’t leave them in the freezer too long or they will be sure to freeze!

    Melt white chocolate per directions on package.

    Dip cake balls into melted chocolate. I used a toothpick to dip them in the chocolate and a small spatula to wipe off the excess chocolate dripping. Place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.

    Nut-Free SunButter Cake Pops, dressed up as "King Cake" for Mardi Gras.

    Decorate with your sprinkles. Work quickly here as the chocolate dries fast. Celebrate and enjoy!

    Note about the sprinkles: I use India Tree sparkling sugar and decorating set to make mine. I stay away from all artificial coloring! My colors may look a little different but I love the uniqueness of them and feel so good about not giving my kiddos the chemical colors.

    Decorate your baked good with NO artificial food dyes in these colored sprinkles from India Tree.
