Preparation

  1. Preheat your cake pop maker. Sift together flour, cacao, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In large mixing bowl, stir together room temperature almond milk and apple cider vinegar. Allow to sit for 1 minute to curdle. Add coconut sugar, melted coconut oil, vanilla, and puréed beets. Slowly whisk in the flour mixture and beat until combined. Pour batter into cake pop maker 1 tablespoon for each mould.
  3. Bake cupcakes for 3-5 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of the cake pop comes out clean. Place on cooling rack and cool completely. Insert cake pop stick into each once cooled.
  4. To make the white chocolate coating, melt the chips in a microwave-safe bowl or double boiler and set aside. Dip the cooled cake pops in the melted chocolate, top with sprinkles, and allow to cool in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Best enjoyed within 1-2 days.
