Chocolate Peppermint Lumps of Coal Cake Balls #NewTraditions #Recipe9:05 AM
One of our favorite holiday traditions is making sweet treats together. Each Christmas Eve, we always go ice skating, then we go look at Christmas lights and finally, we come home to make a sweet treat for Santa before going to bed.
The holidays are the sweetest time of the year, and Hershey’s wide variety of baking products – from classic ingredients like Hershey’s Chocolate Chips and Hershey’s Cocoa Powder to iconic Hershey’s Kisses – will delight everyone at your table this holiday season.
Chocolate Peppermint Lumps of Coal Cake Pops
- 1 c. butter
- 1/4 c. Hershey's Cocoa Powder
- 1 c. water
- 2 c. flour
- 1 1/2 c. light brown sugar packed
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 c. sweetened condensed milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 c. finely chopped Hershey's Kisses Candy Cane Mint Candies
- 1 container of whipped white frosting
- 1 bag Hershey's Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: In a small saucepan, melt 1 c. butter and then add in 1/4 c. Hershey's Cocoa Powder and 1 c. water. Stir well until barely boiling and then remove from heat and set aside.
Step 7: Let the cake cool completely and then break it into pieces with your hands in a large mixing bowl.
Step 8: Finely chop 1 c. of Hershey's Kisses Candy Cane Mint Candies and add them to the cake in the mixing bowl along with a container of whipped white frosting. Mix together well with your hands, squeezing and melding the mixture together as you go.
Step 9: Form the cake mixture into rough ball shapes. You want these to be uneven, because they will resemble lumps of coal. Place the cake balls on cookie sheets lined with foil or parchment paper and place them in the freezer to harden.
