Serves:

depending on the size of your cake balls, 2-3 for each person this recipe made 32

Prep:

3 Hr

Ingredients

1 box
lemon flavored cake mix
1 tsp
lemon extract
1 jar(s)
lemon curd
2 pkg
white bark, for coating

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare cake mix as directed on the box adding the 1 teaspoon of lemon extract during mixing.Bake in a 9x13 pan as directed. When cake is done and cool enough to handle(but still warm)place into a large mixing bowl and crumble.
2
Add approximately 2-3 Tablespoons of lemon curd. and mix well until the cake is easily formed into balls. I like mine a little "cakey" but you can add more to you liking. reserve and set aside 1 cup of the mixture
3
using a Tablespoon form into balls and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment or waxed paper.
with the handle of a wooden spoon (I use my little finger)make a small well in the middle of each ball.
4
fill each cake ball with a small amount of the lemon curd. (I used a small frosting press that I have.) using the reserved cake mixture that you set aside take a small piece and carefully cover each opening pressing lightly so as not to push any of the lemon curd out.
5
Place in refrigerator or freezer for one hour.
6
Remove from freezer and dip each ball into melted white bark, I use a spoon to dip then transfer the cake ball to the fork and let it drip the excess off. set each ball onto waxed or parchment paper and let sit until; the coating has set. don't worry if you see a little spot or two that you missed you can re-dip that area with the left over bark after letting them sit.
7
store in a airtight covered container until ready to serve. ENJOY!
