  2. Tried just chocolate chips and the dip was too thick. The cake pop fell off the stick and the coating was just weird and uneven. Maybe candy melts are the way to go? ????

  3. Hi Jules
    I was wondering about the shelf life of these?? We all know that gf baking goes stale quicker than regular so I was just wondering how long these stay “fresh” for. Tia

    • Hi Julia – great question. If you’re worried about shelf life, you’ve picked a great recipe. First off, the gluten-free cake when made with my flour has a longer shelf life than most GF baked goods (my flour contains a natural preservative). Also, you’re adding frosting to the cake itself in order to form the balls, and then you’re dipping them in chocolate or more frosting which seals in the moisture. All together, these will stay nice and yummy for days. Of course, you can also freeze them – your choice. Enjoy!

  4. All the links in the easy gluten-free cake pops recipe take me to gfjules front page. I can’t open the tiny, tiny pictures, I can’t check out the links to other recipes mentioned in the article. Please fix this.
