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. You can use this cake ball recipe for the base and then roll the frosted cake balls in colored coconut. 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.
These are an great addition to your St. Patrick’s celebration!
