Keto Chocolate Cake Pop Tips:
- Roll your balls while they are still just a tad bit warm or room temperature.
- You can buy your cake pop sticks at any craft store or on Amazon. If you can’t find them, you can use bamboo skewers instead. Cut them to be 6” if needed.
- Reheat your melted chocolate coating as needed to keep it nice and melty. The cake balls are more prone to falling apart as the chocolate cools so store them in the fridge before serving.
- For your melted chocolate, you want a bowl or pot that is small and doesn’t have a large diameter, or else it will be difficult to fully coat the balls in such a shallow pool of chocolate. You can always microwave your chocolate in one bowl, and then pour it into a smaller one when it is time for dipping.
- Coat your cake balls in the melted chocolate after the cake balls have cooled to room temperature. Coating them while warm may make them more prone to breaking.
- Dip the tip of the stick in (about 3/4” of the tip) in the melted chocolate before sticking it into your cake ball. It helps the stick to stay in the cake ball and it also keeps the melted chocolate from getting on the stick above the cake ball.
- Insert the stick at a 90 degree angle, and insert it just about to the other side of the ball.
