Passover Lemon Cake Balls

Passover Lemon Cake Balls

The popularity of my Passover Heavenly Chocolate Ganache Cake balls has skyrocketed over the years. The winning combination of convenience and novelty cannot be denied. Plus they are over-the-top delicious. This year, I set out to make an even simpler version for a cooking class I taught a few weeks ago. These Passover Lemon Cake Balls are the happy result. Enjoy!

Passover Lemon Cake Balls

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces Passover Cake
  • 1/2 cup lemon curd
  • 10-12 ounces vanilla candy coating (I like Ghiradelli Vanilla Melting Wafers
  • Sprinkles, poppy seeds, or another embellishments for decorating that you’d like

Directions:

  1. Crumble the cake into a bowl.
  2. Add the lemon curd and mix well to combine.
  3. Roll mixture into balls using a cookie scoop and place on a baking tray.
  4. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  5. Melt the vanilla candy coating according to package directions and let cool slightly.
  6. Dip each ball in the melted candy coating using 2 forks and give each a gentle shake to remove excess coating.
  7. Place on wax paper and let the coating harden at room temperature or stick them in the freezer to speed things up. Bring to room temperature 30 minutes before serving.

Notes:

*A small cookie scooper will make 24 1-inch truffle-sized cake balls, and a medium one will make 12-2 ½ inch cake balls. It is quicker to make the balls larger, but it is cuter to make them smaller. It’s your choice, and may it be the toughest decision you’ll make all day.
