Biscoff Cookie Butter Cake Balls          Printer-Friendly Recipe

From: Butterlust

Ingredients

Cake

Vanilla Cake from a box, prepared according to instructions
Vegetable Oil *needed for the boxed cake mix I used
3 Eggs *needed for the boxed cake mix I used

Frosting

2 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup Cookie Butter
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tsp milk (optional, to thin frosting)

for assembling the cake balls

1 package vanilla candy coating (almond bark)
1 tbsp Cookie Butter
3 – 4 Biscoff cookies, crushed

Directions

for the cake

Prepare cake according to box instructions in a 13×9-inch pan.  Cool completely.

For the frosting

Cream together the butter and Cookie Butter in the bowl of a stand mixer (1-2 minutes).  Mix in the vanilla.  With the mixer on low, slowly mix in the powdered sugar until well combined.  Add in milk to thin out the frosting, add as much as needed to make the frosting soft but not runny.

For assembling the cake balls

For easy cleanup, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Crumble the cooled cake in a large bowl.  Add about 1/2 of the icing to the crumbled cake and mix until evenly combined.  Add more icing if needed.  You should be able to form a ball with the dough without it crumbling apart.  Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Use a 1-inch cookie scoop to portion out the dough, rolling each into balls.  Place each cake ball on the prepared baking sheet.  Place cookie sheet in freezer and chill cake balls for 30 minutes (this is optional, but will help the balls maintain their shape when you are coating them).

Microwave 3/4 (half would work, too…I just tend to heavily coat the cake balls) of a package of vanilla candy coating in a small bowl according to package directions (typically stirring every 30 seconds until melted).  Using two forks, dip each cake ball in the bowl of melted candy coating and shake off the excess.  Gently place each coated cake ball back on to the baking sheet.  Work as quickly as you can, the candy coating will start to harden up the longer it sits out.  Repeat until all the cake balls are coated and then allow them to harden.

Microwave the remaining candy coating until melted and stir in a spoonful of Cookie Butter.  Use a spoon to drizzle this mixture over the cake balls.  While the drizzle is still wet, sprinkle the cake balls with crushed Biscoff Cookies.  Allow the cake balls to dry completely and enjoy!

Cookie Butter.  The best.  I used Biscoff Cookie Spread (I found it at Target).  There are also other brands of Cookie Butter out there.

I strayed from the directions on this part (long story, but I ruined the rest of my frosting).  Instead, I melted a little of the Cookie Butter in the microwave.

    • Yes! It seems like grocery stores are always selling out of the white almond bark this time of year. Go ahead and use 1 1/2 cups of white chocolate chips with 2 tablespoons of shortening (Crisco). Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and then microwave for 30 more seconds. Stir again until chocolate is smooth and fully melted. If needed, microwave in 15 second increments until done. (Alternatively you could melt the chips with shortening over a double boiler on the stovetop). I hope this helps! I love these cake balls, so yummy 😀
