I’ve gotten better at actually photographing the things I make but it takes a lot longer for me to actually write up my post and get it published, or what happened with this recipe, it just sort of got lost amongst the drafts.
It was back the beginning of September that I posted this picture on Moments with Maisie of Maisie helping to make a strawberry cake because it was just what we had done that day but I never posted what we did with cake…Until now.
1 box strawberry cake mix, prepared according to package instructions
1 8 oz. brick cream cheese, room temperature
1 16-ounce can strawberry frosting
1/2 bag mini chocolate chips
white candy melts
Crisco solid shortening, if needed
pink sugar crystals
Prepare the cake mix according to the package instructions. Allow the cake to cool completely and then crumble into a large bowl. To the cake crumbles stir in the cream cheese and strawberry frosting until fully mixed. Mix in the mini chocolate chips. Using a cookie scoop form and place each cake ball on a Silpat lined cookie pan. Once all the cake balls have been formed place the tray in the freezer to allow the cake balls to harden.
Melt the candy melts in the microwave, stirring every minute so not to burn the candy. Add Crisco if the candy needs to be thinned a little. Dip the frozen cake balls in the melted candy, place back on the Silpat and immediately sprinkle with the sugar crystals. Refrigerate to set the candy.
