  3. 1 cup water
  4. 1/3 cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil
  5. 3 large eggs
  6. 3/4 cup Pillsbury® Creamy Supreme® Cream Cheese Flavored Frosting
  7. 5 cups white baking chips
  8. 1/2 cup Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
  9. Red decorator sugar
Instructions

  3. LINE a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan with wax paper. Roll cake mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place on wax paper. Cover and freeze at least 1 hour.
  4. COMBINE baking chips and shortening in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes; stir. Microwave at additional 10 second intervals until completely melted and smooth when stirred.
  5. REMOVE a few cake balls from freezer, keeping the rest frozen. Drop balls into coating mixture. Using a spoon, cover balls with coating, without stirring the balls in coating. Lift each cake ball with fork, allowing excess coating to drip off into bowl. Using toothpick, gently push ball off fork onto wax paper. Immediately sprinkle with decorator sugar. Repeat to coat remaining cake balls. (If coating thickens, microwave at additional 10 second intervals until desired consistency when stirred.) When complete, chill 5 minutes or until coating is set. Serve at room temperature.
  6. TIP To prepare 1 dozen cake balls, prepare cake according to above directions, but use only one-fourth of prepared cake. Reserve remaining cake for another use. Use only 3 tablespoons frosting, 1 1/2 cups white baking chips and 2 tablespoons shortening when making cake balls.
