As a THANK YOU for my Stamp Club members for helping me earn the Alaska Cruise with Stampin’ Up, I created these cute little cupcake bites for them to enjoy at our July meeting. I had so many requests for the recipe, I thought I would share with everyone. 🙂
1 Box cake mix
1 Can frosting (same color as the cake, if possible)
Melting Chocolates (I found lots of different colors at my local hobby store)
Mini paper liners
Bake cake according to directions in a 9″ x 13″ pan. Allow to cool. Trim off the outside edges that are dry and discard (or feed to the kids). In a bowl, crumble the cake with your fingers until it is nothing but fluffy crumbs. Add the can of frosting and mix until everything is “wet”. Place in the fridge for a couple hours so it can set up. Take a small amount of dough and roll into balls. I used the small melon ball thing from Pampered Chef to make it easier. Place on waxed paper or parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Freeze for 2-3 hours.
Melt chocolate in a double boiler until melted. Dip each ball in the chocolate and place in a paper liner. I used a couple of chopsticks to pick them up. Worked pretty good! Sprinkle immediately with candy sprinkles.
*** I made chocolate cake and chocolate frosting, coated in dark chocolate. I also did strawberry cake and strawberry frosting coated in white chocolate. So yummy!!!! I would love to try Red Velvet cake too!
And to say THANK YOU, I used Stampin’ Up’s new stamp set Perfect Punches and the Scallop Oval punch to create the toothpicks. What a easy way to say THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
