Introduction: Cupcakes Into Snow Ball Cake Balls

Hey guys! This is one dessert that represents the winter in all it's glory. Snow ball cake balls. I first made these last year, and they were a hit.

When a few of my chocolate cupcakes got ruined during transportation, I thought what better to do with them than recreate them into snow balls. This recipe is great for leftover cakes or cupcakes that you would like to transform.

You'll Need:

Baked, cooled & frosted cupcakes

Coconut flakes

White candy melt or white chocolate

toothpicks or a fork

Mini cupcake liners

Watch the full tutorial above!

Step 1: Cake Dough

I used 4 chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream. This part can be done by hand. Simply add to a bowl (or food processor) and begin to mash with a fork or blend. After about 5 minutes (if by hand) the crumbs should start to form and come together into a dough like consistency.

Step 2: Form Balls

Next we're going to form the balls. Do this by taking a small amount of cake dough and giving it a squeeze to remove air. Then, form that into a small ball. My cake balls were about the size of a golf ball. Allow the balls to freeze for 30 minutes or longer.

Step 3: Toppings

This step is optional but definitely noticeable. Add about a cup of coconut flakes to a food processor and give it a few pulses. Just enough to cut these coconut flakes into smaller bits.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt down white candy melts (or white chocolate) for 30 second intervals until melted. Remember to stir between intervals to avoid burning.

Step 4: Dip

Using toothpicks or a fork, carefully stick into the cake ball. Gently place in the candy melt and give it a nice drench in the candy melt. After it's fully coated, give it a light tap to remove any excess.

Step 5: Roll

Immediately after dipping in chocolate, roll into the coconut. When fully covered in coconut, gently remove the toothpick or fork and place into a mini cupcake wrapper. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate or freeze. These treats are tasty frozen as well!.

Enjoy!
