Looking for a fun, festive treat to make this year for St. Patty’s day? Have no fear- you and your kids will love these Green Velvet Cake Pops. They’re great for little ones because they’re no more than a bite, so you can allow your child one without sending them off on a sugar craze. Not to mention, they’re a great exercise in portion control for the adults too.
Most importantly, they’re delicious. Though their green color may scare you at first, they taste exactly the same as their red velvet counterparts- except of course that in each bite you get a little bit of deliciously hardened white chocolate to go with the cake and cream cheese frosting. This doesn’t also mean you can’t color them however you want, try adding some fun pinks and yellows in for Easter this year! Whatever holiday you go for, you can’t of course forget the sprinkles for added cheer- a little creativity is always welcome!
