Easter Chick Cake Balls

With Easter just around the corner, it's time to think of that cute treat to bring to the annual Easter party and Egg Rolling.  Wondering what Egg Rolling is?  Well we color our eggs so cute and write our names on our egg carton.  We take our eggs to a hill and roll them down the hill.  Then we chase after our eggs and roll them again, until we can no longer roll them.  And repeat.  Wondering what the point is, well me too...but that's what we do every year. 
Ok back to the treat.  My family seems to love cake balls, they gobble them up.  Sometimes I like to try different ways to decorate them.  I'm not the best by any means, but they're usually cute enough to eat!  These little chicks are perfect for Easter time and spring, and they are pretty easy to make.
I like to use the Wilton Recipe for cake balls.  For these chicks I used carrot cake, it seems spring-y to me (must be because of the bunnies).  But you can use whatever flavor you like. 

1.  Make the cake according to the Wilton Recipe for cake balls.
2.  When the cake is cool, crumble it up and mix in 3/4 can of cream cheese frosting.  Add more frosting as needed.
3.  Roll balls of cake/frosting that are about 1 1/4" to 1 1/2" balls. 
4.  Chill the balls, but don't freeze.  If you freeze them, it'll crack the chocolate as they melt.
5.  Melt white chocolate.  I usually melt it in the microwave 30 seconds, stir, 30 seconds, stir, etc.  A double boiler is also an excellent option.  Tint it yellow with yellow oil based coloring, or yellow melts.
6.  Place the chilled balls on skewers.
7.  Dip the cake balls in the yellowish chocolate and allow to set up. 
8.  Melt some orange melts or white chocolate colored orange, put in a Ziploc bag and cut a small opening in the corner.  On wax paper draw some chicken combs and beaks with the orange chocolate and allow to dry.
9. Use the orange chocolate in the bag and glue the combs and beaks onto the cake balls.
10.  Melt brown/black chocolate and make little chicken eyes.

There you go, look how cute all of those little chicks are.  Happy Easter and Spring Time!
