A few tips:
- I made my cakesicles with sunflower seeds, but you can also use cashew nuts if you don’t need them to be nut free.
- Start by adding all the ingredients for the gingerbread cakesicles except for the water to a high speed blender and mix until you have a fine mixture. Then add just a little of water at a time until you have a mixture that sticks together, but isn’t too sticky.
- This batter makes four small or three larger cakesicles. The recipes can easily be doubled since its no bake.
- I used dark chocolate for the coating, but you can use any chocolate you like and prefer.
- Make sure the cakesicles are really frozen before coating them with chocolate, that will reduce the time for the chocolate to set.
- Use any topping or decoration that you like or prefer for these cakesicles, or just leave them as they are.
- Store in the fridge
