Do You Want to Build Some Snowman Cake Balls?
- 1 Chocolate Crème Dutch Apron Bakery Cake Roll
- White chocolate candy melts
- Candy corn
- 1 bag of mini peanut butter cups
- Black frosting
- Place the Chocolate Crème Cake Roll in a large mixing bowl.
- Take a potato masher and break up the cake roll until the frosting and cake are well mixed. Use a spoon or your hands to finish combining if necessary.
- Scoop the mixture into uniform balls.
- Freeze the balls for one hour.
- While the balls are freezing, grab the candy corn. For these Snowman Cake Balls, we only need the orange tip of the candy. Carefully, cut off as many tips as you need and put them aside.
- Once the balls are chilled, take them out of the freezer and roll each one in the palm of your hand to create a nice, smooth surface.
- Prepare the candy melts following the instructions on the packaging.
- Dip each cake ball into the white chocolate using a fork. Tap on the edge of the bowl to remove some of the excess white chocolate; this helps give the cake ball a smoother coating.
Tip: Make sure you leave some white chocolate on the cake balls, so it can settle at the bottom and give them that melting appearance.
- Slide the cake ball off the fork and onto wax paper.
- Before the white chocolate hardens, grab your peanut butter cups and candy corn tips.
- Place the peanut butter cups upside down on the tops of your cake balls. Press down slightly to be sure they stick. These will be the hats of your snowmen.
- Now, take the candy corn tips and push them into the center of the cake balls. The narrow end should be sticking out to make it look like they have a little carrot nose.
- Finally, get a toothpick and the black frosting. Dip one end of the toothpick in the frosting and start decorating your snowmen’s faces. We did two black dots on either side of the nose for the eyes. Five black dots were put in a semicircle underneath the nose to form the mouth.
Easy to make and exciting to look at, these Snowman Cake Balls are the perfect holiday treat to effortlessly impress the guests at your Christmas celebration.
