Here's a quick dessert to make and share this St. Patrick's Day~ Irish Cream Cake Balls.
What you need~
1 cake, crumbled
1 1/2 - 2 c Irish cream
2 bags candy melts
Crumble cake; be sure to break up any larger pieces. Beginning with one cup of cream, combine cake and Irish cream until moist and cake holds shape when pressed on. Form into one inch balls. Place on waxed paper on cookie sheet; put in freezer at least one hour. Melt candies per package directions. Dip cake balls into melted candy coating by setting on top of fork, tapping to remove excess melted candy. Return to waxed paper to set. Makes about 40 cake balls.
I used spice cake but this would be excellent with chocolate cake, especially one made with Guinness such as this one. I do have to admit that using frosting would make forming the cake balls easier but I don't care for all the extra sweetness. Those interested cake balls made with frosting, here's a recipe for Irish cream frosting to use. Slainte!
