Cake Truffles are pure fun, but these creepy crawly cake truffles cause Halloween Dessert making to be wickedly entertaining!
Every October we spend a substantial amount of our family time in the kitchen, brewing up ghoulish treats for Halloween.
As far as the kids are concerned, the spookier or more grotesque our Halloween dessert looks, the better. That is, as long as they are tasty on the inside.
I like to look for inspiring ghastly-goodies online. This year McCormick Spices is offering a hoard of devilish treats to tempt your taste buds on their website.
We tried these Creepy Crawly Cake Truffles this week and were amazed at just how easy and fun they were to make.
These cake truffles are flavored with orange and marshmallow cream. They are then covered in colored candy melts, and decorated with candy to make grim and gruesome creatures of the night.
Creepy Crawly Cake Truffle are a Halloween dessert the kids will be proud to pass around. Our friends were all smiles upon receiving these frightful little bite of goodness.
