American Apple Pie Cakeballs
AMERICAN APPLE PIE
spice cake mix
cinnamon vanilla buttercream frosting
apple pie filling, make sure apple chunks are finely diced
CINNAMON VANILLA BUTTERCREAM FROSTING
powdered sugar, sifted
milk or cream
1Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9x13 pan.
2Mix together cake mix, applesauce, eggs, milk, and vanilla. Batter will be thick. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 28-32 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from oven and cool completely.
3FROSTING: Place butter in a large mixing bowl. Beat until light and fluffy, about 30 seconds. Add sugar, 3 tablespoons milk (or cream), and vanilla. Beat frosting, starting on slow and increasing your speed until frosting is nice and creamy. Stir in cinnamon. Add 1 or more tablespoons of milk (or cream) if frosting is too thick.
4TO MAKE CAKEBALLS: Crumble cooled cake into large bowl. With the back of a spoon, mix together cake crumbles, frosting and 1/2 cup apple pie filling, until a thick dough consistency forms. Shape into evenly sized cake balls and cool 1-2 hours in the fridge or 20 minutes in the freezer. I use a small cookie scoop for the balls and roll in my hands to get them even. Once the balls have chilled, dip into white or dark melting chocolate. You can use chocolate, almond bark, or I prefer, Wilton candy melts for coating.

How do you dip them in the candy coating? When ever I have tried they fall apart or the frosting gets some of the cake pieces in it. Is there a tool you use to get it on the cake balls evenly? Do you work quickly so the coating doesn't cool and hardens? I have tried cake balls many times and just throw them away because I just can't seem to get the coating on right? I hope you have a good suggestion.
