National Cake Pop Day

OMF Cake Pops

With National Cake Pop Day just a couple of days away, it's the perfect time to talk artichokes...for real!  At Ocean Mist Farms we love our veggies, but we also love a little chocolate too.  So when we have a chance to enjoy both, we do... especially when they're together on a stick!

It sounds like a crazy idea, I know. But our Castroville Dark Chocolate Cake Pops and White Chocolate Cake Pops are divine.  I promise you will definitely be reaching for a second one.

Castroville Dark Chocolate Cake Pops

The unique ingredient in both recipes is cooked artichoke hearts that have been cooled and mashed.  (I like to use Season & Steam artichokes, because they cook in 7 minutes in my microwave while my oven is pre-heating and I'm gathering all the other ingredients.)

Mixed into the cake pop batter, the artichoke lends a creamy, nutty flavor that pairs beautifully with the sweetness of the chocolate.

And look how gorgeous they look with the crushed pistachios and toasted coconut! I feel like a professional baker every time I make these. 

If you're looking for a unique way to celebrate National Cake Pop Day or want to up your Valentine's game with co-workers and friends, look no further.  These will be the last cake pop recipes you will ever need.

Growing up on California's central coast, I enjoyed delicious artichokes around the family dinner table and always on Christmas Eve! It is beyond perfection that I now market artichokes for a living and get to share the Ocean Mist Farms story and my love of all things fresh.
