This recipe comes from a Woman’s World magazine. It’s phenomenally easy and these rich chocolaty confections have a surprise inside. For holiday gatherings you could of course do red/green/white sprinkles, or tint the vanilla flavored candy quick a different color. Add a seasonal flavor of Hershey’s Kiss in the middle for extra fun!

Festive Cake Balls

1 pkg. 14 oz chocolate frosted chocolate cake with creamy filling cupcakes. (I used 10 Little Debbie Cocoa Cremes.)
16 Kisses and/or Hugs candies, unwrapped (I used 8 Hershey Air Delight Kisses and 8 Raspberry Hugs)
6 oz of Chocolate Candy Quick
6 oz of Vanilla Candy Quick
2 tsp. oil
decorating sprinkles, sugar, decorator gels, etc.

• Mix cupcakes with a machine, until it forms a dough-like mixture. Separate into 16 portions.

• Put 1 chocolate candy into the middle of each portion; wrapping the dough around the piece to completely cover it. Roll into balls. Refrigerate or freeze until firm, around an hour or so.

• Microwave one flavor of Candy Quick with 1 tsp. of oil, on 1/2 power for about 30 seconds, stir. If not completely melted microwave it again for 10 to 15 seconds, until it is smooth. Dip your cake balls into the melted Candy Quick, letting the extra chocolate drip off. Place on waxed paper, parchment or foil. Immediately sprinkle with decorations or sugars.

• Do the same as the above with the other flavor of Candy Quick.

• Refrigerate Cake Balls until time to serve.

  1. Creme filled cupcakes! so much easier than baking a cake and adding frosting. Does this work with twinkies too?

  2. You could even dye white chocolate coating with food coloring, to make them red and green!
