What are the hottest things on the Halloween party snacks menu list for this season?
Cake balls are easy to make and you can make some yummy, cute Halloween inspired creations...
Some traditional choices for the Halloween season are to use red velvet cake, or of course the perennial favorite - chocolate!
Ideas for decoration include:
My personal favorite?
Make white cake balls, add a white coating, and then use black icing for decoration to make little ghost faces!
Prepare the coating: If you are using Almond Bark Coating, which is found at the grocery store, melt the package in the microwave on high for 45 seconds, stir, then heat an additional 15 seconds and stir until melted. Be careful not to scorch. You can also use a double boiler.
When melted, stir in 1 teaspoon vegetable oil. If you wish to tint the mixture, use oil-based coloring (not regular food coloring).
If you are using Confectionery Wafer Coating, which is found at cake supply stores and craft stores, melt in the microwave or double boiler and stir in oil-based food coloring. Do NOT add the 1 teaspoon vegetable oil.
If you wish to dip in sprinkles or add toppings, do so before the original coating sets.
This recipe makes about 2 1/2 dozen balls. Do not refrigerate.
