The Food Friday recipe today is from me! I really need you all to send me some of yours. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your recipes. This recipe reminds me of sunshine and spring. Something we all need after the past 24 hours in snowy Minnesota. Have a great weekend you all!
Orange Cake Bites
1 box orange cake mix
1 container of orange frosting
2 pkgs of white candy melts
Bake the cake according to the instructions on the box. Let it cool completely and then crumble the whole thing into little pieces. I crumble it in a bowl because it’s easier to work with, but some people keep it right in the pan. When it’s all crumbled, stir in the can of frosting until it’s combined well.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, then form about a tablespoon full of the cake into little balls. I like to use my cookie scoop to keep them all the same size. After the cake bites are all formed stick them into a freezer until they’re frozen solid.
Melt your candy melts. I like to use a tiny little crock pot I have that is really for dip. It works great to melt the candy and keep it warm, but be sure to keep it on very low so that it doesn’t burn. Place a piece of parchment paper next to the melted candy. You will need to have your space organized as the next step requires quick work.
When the bites are frozen and the candy melted, take only a few of the cake bites out of the freezer at a time. I put a few cake bites into the melted candy and then use two forks to transfer them quickly to the waiting parchment paper. My daughter adds the sprinkles. The melted candy will harden really fast. Continue with all the cake bites until you have them all covered. I like to serve them in little candy papers, which you can find next to the cupcake papers in most stores. Enjoy!
