Just in time for St. Patty’s day I bring you Luck of the Irish cake balls I found these adorable little guys over at Hungry Happenings and thought I would give them a try for St. Patty’s day. We had to throw a purple one in there just to shake things up a bit.
As always, food bloggers make it look so easy, but we (my sister & I….well, mostly my sister) persevered and ended up with these adorable fuzzy cupcake balls.
Making the coconut stick to the balls was pretty challenging. Make sure there is a good layer of chocolate on the cake balls before rolling in coconut to have success.
Attaching the shamrocks was another challenge. We used skewer stick to create a hole in the ball to insert the shamrock decoration.
However, after figuring out those details it went off without a hitch. Hungry Happenings has the recipe and step by step at her site so head on over there for the instructions.
If you attempt these let me know how yours turn out.
