Here’s what you will need:
- white cake mix
- 1 tsp. peppermint extract
- white candy coating
- crushed peppermint
- about 1 cup of buttercream icing
Bake a white cake in a 9 x 13 pan. Let cool. Crumble the cake in a mixing bowl. Stir peppermint extract into the icing and add to the crumbled cake a little at a time until the mixture can hold shape. Scoop out the mixture with a small cookie scoop to get uniform sizes and roll into balls. Dip the cake balls into white candy coating. Immediately sprinkle with crushed peppermint. Let chocolate dry and place into decorative mini baking cups or bon bon cups.
Another variation: Try chocolate cake dipped in dark chocolate candy coating! Yum!
