Cake Truffles are pure fun, but these creepy crawly cake truffles cause Halloween Dessert making to be wickedly entertaining! Every October we spend a substantial amount of our family time in the kitchen, brewing up ghoulish treats for Halloween.
As far as the kids are concerned, the spookier or more grotesque our Halloween dessert looks, the better. That is, as long as they are tasty on the inside.
1 package white cake mix
1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Orange Extract
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Yellow Food Color
1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Red Food Color
1 cup marshmallow crème
Confectionery coating wafers, such as Wilton® Candy Melts® or tempering chocolate
Assorted candies for decorating
Prepare cake mix as directed on package, adding orange extract and food colors. Bake as directed on package for 13x9-inch baking pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
Crumble cake into large bowl. Add marshmallow crème; mix until well blended. Shape into 1-inch balls. Refrigerate 2 hours.
Temper chocolate or melt coating wafers as directed on package. Using a fork, dip 1 cake ball at a time into the confectionery coating or melted chocolate. Tap back of fork 2 or 3 times against edge of dish to allow excess to drip off. Place cake balls on wax paper-lined tray.
Decorate as desired before the candy melts harden.
Test Kitchen Tips: For 1 batch Cake Truffles, you will need about 1 pound confectionery coating wafers or chocolate.
