I tried those cake balls OMG , they are so delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe. For a twist I used baileys irish creme and dipped them in ganache, MMMMM MMMMM GOOD. I think this will be a new favorite of mine.
Unfortunately.............our wonderful cookieman has removed himself from this site..we hope he comes back soon, he was always so helpful!
Yes, he is busy in his personal life but eventually will be back. He removed himself from another site I am on too. We happily await his return, nice fella that he is!

Sorry guys, I was on vacation. Sorry to hear that, he is always so helpful. I hope he returns.
Could someone send me the recipe for the cake balls? Please?
Ditto... I would love to have the cakeball recipe too please.
I wish him well...
I have never seen this post before. What happened to Cookieman??????? I MISS HIM!!!!!! He could always make me laugh!!! Cookieman........... I MISS YOU!!!!!!! ~Tina~
I have the recipe at home printed out if no one has gotten it yet...cookieman's posts got accidentally deleted when Jackie was taking his info out.
If you need it PM me please, I am not at home right now. I will try to find it and get it to you or at least post it up here.
Here is Cookieman's recipe...
2 cups crumbled cake scraps
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (if cake scraps are not chocolate based)
1/4 cup chopped almonnds (or any other nut you like, or mini-chocolate chips, or M&Ms, you get the idea!)
2 generous shots of amaretto (or any other liquer you may like, a good non-alcohol substitution is any flavored coffee creamer)
Put all ingredients in a mixer and mix on medium speed until the ingedients form a ball. If the mixture seems too dry, add a bit more of the liquid used to make it moist enough to form into balls.
I use a tablespoon cookie scoop to make the balls uniform in size. Roll the scooped dough in your hands to form a nice smooth ball. Allow cake balls to set on a parchment lined cookie sheet for a couple of hours, then dip them in chocolate(following) or roll them in confectioners' sugar or cocoa.
Melt 1 lb. of candy melts and add approximately a tablespoons of crisco to make it a bit more smooth. Also, put the container (in my case, a pyrex measuring cup) of melted candy melts in a very hot (I use amost boiling) water bath to keep the chocolate fluid. dip balls into the chocolate using a spoon and a dipping fork (in my case, a plastic fork with the two middle tines cut out) Don't worry if the dipped balls have a "foot" at the base after drying. You can break some off after they have hardened and once they are in the little cake liners, no one will notice. Also, you can decorate the tops with just about anything, sprinkles, candy confetti, chopped nuts, etc. before they dry. Or after they've dried, pipe designs with royal icing or melted candy melts of differnet colors!
