Hello & Happy Wednesday!

 

 

 

 

 

While I’m not a chocolate person, I love red velvet anything. For the longest time (prob 27 years) I honestly had no idea that red velvet was actually comprised of coco. Mind blown. 

 

If you’re from the South like myself, you already know that red velvet is ubiquitous, and almost iconic in the food culture and will forever remain a staple. 

 

Needless to say, with my love for all things red velvet, white chocolate, and effortless eats, ..I instantly wanted to explore a vegan red velvet cake pop!

 

From a distance the idea of a cake pop sounds involved, annoying, and a big mess. The truth is, it’s actually everything but that. The device is cheap, works like a charm, and makes the cook time 2x faster than a conventional oven. Although this isn’t a promotion for a cake pop maker, I highly recommend trying one!

What I love about this recipe is.. everything. It’s quick, easy, colorful, flavorful, uses beets for the gorgeous red hue, the majority of the sugar is derived from the white chocolate with minimal in the cake (you can also just use stevia!), uses natural sprinkles, makes for the perfect gift, party favor, or entertaining bite, and makes you appear as though you’re the iron chef of baking! 

 


 

 

 

If you need one more reason to buy a cake pop maker.. 

 

 

This recipe for vegan White Chocolate Red Velvet Cake Pops is it!
