_____________________________________________________________Cake Batter Candy
Last night I made a little item called Cake Batter Candy. It. is. heavenly. You seriously have to try this guys. And bonus, there's no baking required. Here's the recipe:
1 (14 oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk
2 cups of confectioner's sugar, divided
1 box cake mix
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Shortening
1. In a large bowl, mix condensed milk and 1 cup of powdered sugar until fully combined.
2. Add cake mix and vanilla. Mix well.
3. Add remaining powdered sugar until dough is pretty firm (like play dough).
4. Form dough into cubes (or balls) and place on parchment lined cookie sheet.
5. Pop in freezer for 20 minutes.
6. For the chocolate coating, in a microwave safe bowl add chocolate chips and microwave in 30-second increments, making sure to stir after each. Takes about 2 minutes total.
7. Stir shortening into the melted chocolate and mix until smooth.
8. Remove cake batter cubes (or balls) from freezer and dip into chocolate. Pop back into freezer of fridge to set.
9. Store in fridge.
*The recipe says to form the dough into cubes or balls and dip them individually in the melted chocolate. I, being lazy, decided not to do that. See the pictures.
