Easter Egg Cake Bites

Ingredients

Cake Bites:

  • 1 package white cake mix 2-layer size
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Lemon Extract
  • McCormick® Assorted Food Colors & Egg Dye Substitutions
  • 1 cup marshmallow creme
  • 1 bag white confectionary coating wafers 14 ounces

Decorating Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • McCormick® Assorted Food Colors & Egg Dye

Instructions

  1. Prepare cake mix as directed on package, adding lemon extract and desired food color. Bake as directed on package for 13x9-inch baking pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
  2. Crumble cake into large bowl. Add marshmallow creme; mix until well blended. Shape into 1-inch balls then roll to form an egg shape. Refrigerate 2 hours.
  3. Melt coating wafers or white chocolate as directed on package. Using a fork, dip 1 cake bite at a time into the confectionary coating or chocolate. Tap back of fork 2 or 3 times against edge of dish to allow excess to drip off. Place cake bites on wax paper-lined tray.
  4. For the Decorating Glaze, mix confectioners’ sugar and water in small bowl until well blended. Tint with desired food color. Using a fork, drizzle glaze over cake bites. Let stand until glaze is set.

Tips:

  1. Use 2 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract or teaspoon McCormick® Raspberry Extract in place of the lemon extract.
  2. To prepare cake bites in multiple colors, divide prepared cake batter into 2 or 3 bowls. Tint each batch with desired food color. Pour into muffin pan. Bake as directed on package. Crumble cake into separate bowls. Divide marshmallow creme among bowls. Continue as directed.
