Gluten Free Cake Pops: Halloween Eyeballs

Ingredients:

One pan of prepared gluten free brownies
1 12 oz. bag of gluten free white chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. shortening
1/3 cup gluten free white frosting (I use Betty Crocker)
Gluten free mini chocolate chips or mini chocolate candy pieces (think M&M minis) or Junior mints
Red paste food coloring
12 Popsicle sticks

Equipment: Bowls, microwave, Styrofoam circle to push the pops into to serve

Instructions:

1. Crumble the baked brownies and form into tight balls using your hands, about the size of golf balls. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes to harden up a bit. Meanwhile, melt the chips and the shortening together in the microwave in a bowl until melted.

2. Dip the end of one Popsicle stick into the melted chocolate and push into the brownie pop. Allow to harden for about 5 minutes. Do this for all 12. Remelt the chocolate if needed. Dip the entire brownie pop in white chocolate to coat using a spoon to help cover if needed.

3. Place them on a cake pop tray or stick into a piece of Styrofoam to hold them up. Allow the chocolate to harden. You can place them in the frig to speed this up. Takes about 15 minutes.

4. Tint the white frosting with the red paste food coloring and mix well. Put the frosting into a zip top bag and cut off the corner just a little bit. Squeeze out vein lines around the brownie pop (see the photo). Then use a little bit of frosting to adhere the small chocolate into the center of the “eye”. Place in the cake pop tray or the styrofoam to hold.

5. Repeat for the rest of your brownie pops. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

These will be a smash hit at any party you go to or host. These would also be great for a school party. No one will know they’re gluten free. And don’t tell them!
