Halloween Cake Balls

Happy Halloween! I made these in honor of Halloween and they came out pretty tasty. The coolest thing that I like about cake balls is that you can change the type of cake, frosting, and coatings for different combinations. These can be made for all sorts of occasions/holidays. Cake balls are really easy to make, but the eyeballs were a little time consuming because of the decorating involved.

I also did little pumpkins with a homemade pumpkin cake (recipe coming soon). These were a whole lot more complicated because the cake was made from scratch and the coating required food coloring. I learned the hard way that you cannot add the dye to the coating after it is melted. You must add liquids (i.e. liqueur, food dye, vanilla extract, etc.) to the bark before it starts to melt down. Otherwise, the chocolate will break and become clumpy. The second time was the charm on these and it was well worth it.

Once again, Happy Halloween! I hope these have inspired you to do some for your next party.
