Cake balls made into Goulish Eyes for Halloween!  The kids and adults will love to pop these in their mouths!

Servings: 36
Prep Time: 24 hours 10 min
Cook Time: 30 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1 (18.25 ounce) package red velvet cake mix
1 (16 ounce) container prepared cream cheese cake frosting
6 ounces of white chocolate flavored confectioners coating disks or bar.
36 Red M&M candies
Red Food Coloring

Directions

PreHeat - 350°

Prepare the cake mix according to the directions on the box.  When cake is finished baking, allow to cool for 30 minutes.  In a large bowl using a hand mixer or in the bowl of a standing mixer crumble the cake. 

Add the frosting and mix until well combined.  Place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Line a baking tray with wax paper.  Using a melon baller as a scooper form balls of the cake mixture.  Place on wax paper. Once you have used all of the cake mixture place the baking tray in the freezer for 1 hour.

Melt the chocolate coating disks in a glass bowl of the microwave, stirring every 5-10 seconds until smooth. At this point you can add a bit of food coloring if you are using white chocolate.

Remove the balls from the freezer.  Using one toothpick, pick up the balls one at a time and dip in the chocolate.  Use a second toothpick to slide the ball off the first toothpick onto the wax paper lined baking tray. 

NOTE:  We found that an old Easter egg dipper works as well.  If the balls fall off the toothpick into the chocolate, they are not firm enough to work with and place them back in the freezer for additional time

Once you have covered all the balls in chocolate coating place an m&m candy in the middle of the “eye”.  Place the tray in the refrigerator until the chocolate coating is set.  At this point you can drizzle the red tinted white chocolate over the eyeballs!  Have fun!

Paula’s note:  Stop the recipe after you dip in White Chocolate for regular cake balls…decorate how you like

I never made cake balls before and they're delicious. I made some eyes and the rest I dipped in milk chocolate and added a candy corn garnish. Yummy! http://kdrausin.com/blog/2011/10/30/halloween-extravaganza/ Thank You!
