For our Halloween party, I decided to make some cake balls. So you will need:
- cake mix (I chose Devil's Food)
- 1/2 tbsp Rexal
- 1 1/3 cup water
- 3 large eggs
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1 can of icing (chocolate icing), you will be using 1/2 or 3/4
- chocolate coating
You need to mix everything (first picture) and bake the cake for 35 minutes at 165°C on a previously buttered cake pan. Here is the cake, already baked. Then, let it cool completely. I left it cool for 4 hours.
In a lage bowl crumble the whole cake into small pieces.
Add 1/2 can of chocolate icing. With a spatula start stirring the mixture, it should be moisty.
If it's not, then add a little more icing until balls can be formed.
Make the balls the size you want. I got 23 balls.
you need the balls to be really cooled, so they will stay that form and help the coating get hard. So, I placed them in the fridge for 2.5 hours, you can place them in the freezer for 30 minutes, if you are in a hurry. Now, melt the chocolate coating following instructions.
Insert the cake ball in the coating and use two spoons to help yourself cover the ball. Use a cookie sheet with wax paper to let the cake balls stand and dry.
I decorated some of them with orange-colored sugar and chocolate topping.
Do you want to try one? I do.
I placed them on top of the Halloween Brownie, as a decoration.
Any suggestions? I would love to try them with red velvet filling but I can't find it in this small town =( this is so sad.
