Cake Drops
  • 3 cups of already baked cake any flavor
  • 1/3 cup frosting homemade or store bought
  • 1-12 oz bag of candy melts any color
  • Sprinkles optional
  1. Line two baking sheets with foil or parchment and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, crumble your cake into tiny pieces, with your hands or a mixer.
  3. Add your frosting.
  4. Work the frosting into the cake by squeezing and pushing until everything is uniform in texture. You're looking for a texture that you can roll into a sturdy ball.
  5. Roll all of the cake into balls approximately 1 Tablespoon in size. Try to keep the cake balls on the small side. If they are too big, they will be too heavy, and you will definitely lose them in the dipping step.
  6. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  7. Place your cake balls onto one of your prepared baking sheets.
  8. Place your candy melts in a glass or ceramic bowl. Heat on MEDIUM (50%) power for 30 seconds, stirring after each session in the microwave. It usually takes about 5-6 sessions of 30 seconds at MEDIUM power to achieve the texture. Stirring will help distribute the heat.
  9. Working with one ball at a time, submerge the cake ball into the melts, making sure to cover the candy mound you created.
  10. While the coating is still wet, decorate with sprinkles.
  11. Place on cookie sheet to set up.
  12. Enjoy!
