I am busy finishing up the gift wrapping, cleaning the house, and doing the last of the Christmas baking. I wanted to share one last recipe before I take a little blogging break to enjoy the holiday weekend with my family. Cake pops are all the rage around blog land, so you’ve probably already seen them. These cake balls are similar, they just don’t have a stick in them. I got the recipe from my friend Kathy. Her husband Dan is the creator of Cook’n software. It is a great product, and they have lots of great recipes on their website. Instead of being on sticks like most cake pops, Kathy’s version look more like truffles. I liked that because I gave some away and I needed them to fit in little bags. 🙂
We loved them!! They will definitely be a new Christmas tradition at our house.
Aren’t they pretty? And they taste wonderful too!
6 ounces cream cheese
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Milk, enough to make spreadable frosting
1 package of almond bark (found near the chocolate chips)
1/2-3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chipsMake cake according to directions on box. Mix together butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk to make a frosting. Dump cake out into a large mixing bowl. (It doesn’t matter if the cake is warm or cool.) Smash it up and add the frosting. Stir till everything is well mixed. Refrigerate till very cold.
