Super Bowl Cake Pops

super bowl football cake pops raspberry chocolate gluten-free recipe

Elana’s Pantry has a cute and tasty Super Bowl treat, and of course its gluten-free!

My favorite part of Super Bowl Sunday is the food.  I love preparing healthy gluten free Super Bowl snacks for my boys and all of their friends.

I would love to say that the cute little gluten free cake pops above were assembled by my children.  However, I made them, and as you can see my cake and candy decorating skills are on par with those of a 10 year old.  Or maybe a 6 year old.  In any event, when I was a child I loved crafty little projects like candy making and such.  Obviously, I haven’t had much practice since back then.

I hope you all enjoy these gluten free Super Bowl Cake pops!  If you make them, please take a photo, as I would like to do a post sometime soon with all of your beautiful gluten free football cake pops.

  • Bake Chocolate Cake as directed on parchment paper lined plate and place in freezer for at least an hour
  • Melt dark chocolate in a very small pot, over very low heat
  • One at a time, dip about ½ inch of the tip of a lollipop stick into melted chocolate
  • Insert the lollipop stick straight into a (football) cake ball, no more than halfway through
  • Holding stick with (football) cake ball attached, dip entire cake ball into melted chocolate, until covered
