This is such a festive, easy christmas dessert that gets kids and adults excited! Who doesn’t love a rich, chocolate truffle? Especially when they’re decked out in red and green and sprinkles!
I have had the pleasure of teaming up with Pillsbury this year to bring you fun holiday recipes! Did you know that 2015 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Pillsbury Doughboy? 50 years full of cookies, cakes, frostings, and more that make it easy to bake in a pinch!
They sent me a package of goodies, and I was just as excited as my kids were to see what was inside and start baking! Immediately I knew what to make when I saw the chocolate cake mix and peppermint frosting. Cake balls!! This is kind of a throwback recipe. About 10 years ago these little treats were super popular, and then they sort of disappeared.
So I am bringing them back – holiday style!
I love chocolate and mint together year round, but especially during Christmas time. These are seriously a cinch to make, and they’ll get you in the holiday spirit in no time! I used a bit of Pillsbury Red Vanilla frosting and Christmas sprinkles to dress these up, but you could leave them plain, or use different sprinkles to fit any occasion.
