Healthy Cake Pops and a Sugar Free Chocolate Giveaway!

I was thrilled to receive a package of sugar free chocolate blocks and melts a few weeks ago. Most of you know that I try to maintain a sugar free diet, but when baking my cakes I haven’t quite found anything that hits the spot

Once I received this package the blocks of chocolate didn’t last long! Especially the creamy milk chocolate block which was demolished in the first minute!

I wanted to create something with the sugar free chocolate melts and decided upon making a healthy (and easy) version of a cake pop. These melts are gluten free, naturally sweetened with Stevia and contain no artificial colours, flavour or preservatives. They would be perfect to make ganache with!

This recipe is adapted from one of my favourite blogs Planning with Kids

Healthy Cake Pops

1 rounded cup of mejool dates (stone removed)

1 cup of banana chips (make sure these haven’t been dipped in sugar or baked in vegetable oil)

1 cup of almonds

1 packet of Well Naturally sugar free chocolate melts

Lollipop sticks

I have made a short video for you with instructions for making the cake pops

 

1378073_724110804309934_6405744413707954375_nMy kids absolutely ADORED these cake pops! They were a huge hit and definitely something that will be added to my afternoon tea repoitoire. The melts were a perfect consistency for dipping (something that I have found with certain brands) and I will definitely be trying these for the ganaching of my cakes in the future.

I am thrilled to be giving away two Well Naturally packs valued at $35 each, which will be drawn in one week on Monday 10th November. To enter, simply answer the following question in the comments below…

“What recipe would you create using the Well Naturally No Sugar Added dark chocolate melts?”

    I would use it to make chocolate covered fruit pieces on sticks (such as strawberries, banana, pineapple). Great for kids parties as a healthier option 🙂

    Thanks for the recipe! Not too sure these chocolates would last long enough for me to make something, however, I might go about melting some and drizzling a little over some freshly popped popcorn.

    Healthy sugar free banana instead of marshmallow s’mores!

    Chocolate and coconut covered strawberries and bananas

  12. Ross S November 9, 2014 at 6:26 pm #

    I’d use the melts for banana and choc chip muffins for the kids – and because they’d be so healthy I might even have one (or two) myself.

  13. Nicole W November 9, 2014 at 6:26 pm #

  20. S. Nik November 9, 2014 at 8:44 pm #

    I’d make choc chip bickies – I’m diabetic so sugar-free choc always goes down well!

  21. Caroline Kelly November 9, 2014 at 10:38 pm #

    With Christmas almost on our doorstep, I would create hollow chocolate Santa’s with a little treat or treasure inside – informing the recipient beforehand is a must.

  22. Jordan D November 10, 2014 at 3:14 pm #

    I would love to make sugar-free peanut butter buckeyes with them, or sugar-free chocolate covered coconut bars. I hope this giveaway is open to the US!

    • BronnieBakes Admin November 10, 2014 at 3:59 pm #

      I’m so sorry Jordan, but it is only open to those in Australia (sorry – I should have stated that in the post)

    Hi Bronnie I love the idea of sugar free chocolate ..I have an ASD child and find it difficult to find treat foods that he can enjoy without the worry of pushing him over that edge. the limits are endless fruit slices with drizzled chocolate tops.. love your videos and all your great tips. cheers Helen

  24. Linda Abbott November 12, 2014 at 10:14 am #

    I would make chocolate self saucing pudding, yummo!

  25. Jane November 12, 2014 at 2:52 pm #

    I would dip the raspberry bites (from http://www.wholefoodsimply.com) into chocolate for a special treat as my children love these. It would also be a good option to add to any of their treats e.g. Custard or just to eat a piece!
    Thanks for sharing we love the planning with kids website too.

  26. Jane November 12, 2014 at 2:55 pm #

    If I was going to keep some for me I would chocolate dip the dehydrated oranges I made.

    • BronnieBakes Admin November 12, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

      oooh – that’s a great idea. I’ve never tried dehydrated oranges before! Will have to give them a go 🙂
