So it is becoming rather obvious that we post a lot about holidays in our blog, but we love holidays! They are the easiest and most fun ways to celebrate, and are great for parties, decoration ideas, delicious foods, and drink recipes! So now that we’ve got Saint Patrick’s Day coming up in a week, you might want to bring some sort of festive treat into work, or make something for your kiddie to bring in to class.
No matter what age you are, you can always get excited about festive treats! One of our favorite recipes that we discovered on Bakerella.com was a cake ball recipe. We were a bit hesitant at trying to make them, since they were a bizarre concept to us at first. But after buying the ingredients, and making a batch of them, we were immediately hooked.
This recipe is fairly easy to make, and will make you the hit of any bake sale or party you bring them to! Here is the recipe from Bakerella’s site that we used. Be sure to follow every step carefully.
-1 box vanilla cake mix
-1 can cream cheese frosting
-1 package white chocolate bark
-green food coloring
-4 leaf clover sprinkles
1. Follow instructions on box to make a cake batter in a large bowl. Then mix in green food coloring until the batter is at the level of green-ness that you’d like. Pour mixture into baking pan and bake in the oven. After cake is cooked and cooled completely, crumble into a large bowl.
2. Mix thoroughly with 1 can cream cheese frosting.
3. Roll mixture into small meatball sized balls and lay on cookie sheet.
4. Chill for several hours in freezer or refrigerator (in a freezer they taste
more like ice cream).
5. Melt white chocolate in microwave or oven per directions on packaging or until very soft (check with a spoon).
6. Roll balls of cake in chocolate (with a spoon is easiest), and lay on wax paper until firm. (Use a spoon to dip and roll in chocolate and then tap off extra.)
7) While still moist, sprinkle 4 leaf clover sprinkles onto the cake balls before they dry. Do this quickly so that they stick!
Also, its better to only melt a few pieces of chocolate bark at a time because it starts to cool and thicken. It’s easier to work with when it’s hot.
