Final Halloween post...promise! You can make these for Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, Valentines Day, or just because. They are hands down my most requested treat (other than these). They take a little time, but the end result is magnifico'!
Bake a cake in a 9x13 inch pan. You can do a home made cake, or one from a box. You also need a coordinating frosting. I've done lemon cake and lemon icing, carrot cake and cream cheese icing, vanilla cake and vanilla icing...but my favorite is Red Velvet cake and cream cheese icing. Bake the cake and let it cool completely. Place it in a large bowl and add the whole container of pre-made frosting. I don't have a brand favorite, I just use whatever is on sale. Mix the cake and icing together until blended well, and mixture resembles cookie-dough consistency.
Meanwhile, take your peanut butter cup candy mold (you can find them at Michaels or Hobby Lobby)
And fill them half way with melted chocolate or candy melts. (I just melt my candy melts in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes until smooth).
Meanwhile, melt candy melts that will be used for the top of the cake bites. I used Halloween colors like purple...
take a cake bite and dip the top into the melted chocolate. You may need to swirl around a little to cover all of the cake.
Light purple and black.
Packaged and ready to take to a party. 160 cake bites ready to make someone really happy. A bit of heaven dipped in chocolate.
