These cute acorn cake bites are perfect for Autumn or just as a delicious treat!
Serves: 40
For cake bites:
  • cake ball batter: (I used a spice cake + ½ cup of cream cheese frosting)
  • 1 package pretzel sticks
  • 1 package Chocolate CANDIQUIK Coating
  • 1 package Vanilla CANDIQUIK Coating
For streusel topping:
  • ½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup quick cooking oats
  • ¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix all streusel topping ingredients together. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Spread streusel topping loosely over baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven and cool.
  1. Shape cake ball mixture into 1” sized acorn-shaped balls; place on a wax paper lined baking sheet.
  2. Melt both the Vanilla and Chocolate CANDIQUIK according to package directions.
  3. Spoon ~4 tablespoons of Chocolate CANDIQUIK into the Vanilla. Stir until well combined.
  4. Dip cake bites in the mixed CANDIQUIK and place on wax paper to set.
  5. Once set, dip the top ⅓ of each cake bite in remaining melted Chocolate CANDIQUIK.
  6. Roll in the streusel topping before coating is set.
  7. Attach a small pretzel piece for the stem.

This stuff is scrumptious. I could think of many a more things these little crumbles could accompany.

P.S. you will have a little extra streusel topping, maybe you can find something to do with it…maybe.

    I have never made cake balls before, this recipe doesn’t say to bake the cake – just lists the ingredients. Do you use just the batter to dip like a cookie dough type treat? ~puzzled~

      Hi there! I forgot to post the link to the cake ball recipe! But here is one, just follow the basic steps to get your cake ball “batter” Basically – you prepare a box cake mix, as directed on the box. Crumble the cake into a large bowl and mix thoroughly with 1/2 of a container of frosting (this is your “batter). Chill that mixture in the fridge for a couple hours (makes it easier to roll); roll mixture into 1″ balls. With a spoon, dip balls in CandiQuik….
      Hope this helps! Thank you so much for your comment!
