I love Christmas music. My favorite carol is Oh Come All Ye Faithful, but almost all of them are pretty great.
Christmas Spice Cakeballs
1 box spice cake mix (follow the directions on the box and bake the cake in a 9x13” pan)
1 container cream cheese frosting from the store
½ lb milk chocolate
½ lb white chocolate
Make the cake and let it cool completely.
Remove it from the pan and crumble it up in a large mixing bowl.
Mix in the container of frosting (don’t be afraid to really mix it in).
Refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes to an hour (this will make it easier to form the balls).
Using spoons and/or your hands, form the cake into balls. The size is totally up to you, mine were about 2 tablespoons each.
Tip: If you find that your cakeballs are too crumbly and aren’t sticking together, mix the cake more thoroughly, and if you’re still having issues, mix in a large spoonful of cream cheese.
Freeze the balls for at least 30 minutes. (If you don’t want to make all the cakeballs at once you can store them in your freezer in a sealed container.)
In a double boiler melt your chocolate. I did this in batches, since my double boiler is small, and I think it works better. Start with 3/4 cup of each kind of chocolate.
Tip: You really must use good quality chocolate. (I’ve learned this the hard way.) The store brand just doesn’t melt very well. I was lucky enough to win 2 boxes of Guittard chocolate wafers, so that was perfect!
Using 2 spoons, roll the balls in the chocolate and put them on a wax-papered pan to cool. (You don't HAVE to use waxed paper, but if you don't be prepared to use a knife to get them off the pan.)
Once they are cooled completely you should be able to store them in Tupperware. Or consume immediately.
These would be perfect to take to a holiday party, or to snack on while watching a movie, or eat while sipping eggnog snuggled on the couch in front of the Christmas tree. (Can you tell what I wish I were doing right now?)
