Hello ~ my name is Rebecca and I have a nephew who has Celiac Disease. My sister typically just bakes a gluten-free cake mix but I wanted to do something more homecooked for my daughter's birthday celebration at my house.
We are having a birthday party for my daughter and I wanted to make a flourless chocolate cake pops. I want to make 100% certain that the ingredients I will be using are safe. Can you all help me?
the recipe is as follows:
butter
*semisweet chcolate chips (for this I was wondering if I can use Hershey's Special Dark chcolate bar instead as I know regular choc chips from a standard store is not safe)
eggs whites and yolks
regular sugar
confectioners sugar
*Frosting - this one I definitely need assistance in which brand is safe.

I would appreciate any input or advice so I don't get my nephew sick and we are able to have a festive birthday party for my daughter.

Are all of these ingredients safe?

I use Nestle dark chocolate chips . I am unaware that they are unsafe but if you want to you can use their bar and break it up.
egg,,,sugar...confectioners sugars are fine I use any brand for these.
frosting = Betty Crocker has many gluten-free flavors it says Gluten free on back if safe , Pillsbury has a couple gluten-free flavors mainly vanilla and choc, again it says gluten-free on back

Since you are not a gluten-free house a few cooking safety tips. Bake the cake in a disposable pan (just to be sure) and mix ingredients in a very clean glass/steel bowl using non-wood, non-plastic utensils. If using butter make sure its from a new stick untouched . Do not use your hand mixer because it is contaminated with gluten, borrow a gluten-free one or use your bicep power.


I am sure your nephew will really appreciate your effort.
