Roll up your sleeves, put on your apron and get ready to make the most amazing cake balls you’ll ever taste.  I pinky swear!

OK – I have to confess that I never wear an apron.  I know I should and I have the stains to prove it, but I feel too constricted.  I need to be able to move freely when I’m doing my favorite holiday activity – baking.

Every year around this time, the kids start calling and the conversation goes a little like this:  “Hey, mom! Whatcha doing?  Blogging? (I can almost hear their eyes roll) When are you going to start holiday baking?  You are baking this year, right?”

As if!  When have I not baked for the holidays? Christmas wouldn’t be the same without baking the family’s favorite goodies and believe me, the kids always let me know which ones they are expecting. You don’t mess with tradition during the holidays . . . unless you’re improving those traditions!

And that’s exactly what I did when I changed up my cookie ball recipe and created White Peppermint Funfetti® Cake Balls.  And let me insert right here and now that Funfetti® is my son-in-law’s and all four of my grandsons favorite cake flavor – ever.

My White Peppermint Funfetti® Cake Balls are a huge hit with my family and friends. Everyone is asking for the recipe!

Let’s get started making some White Peppermint Funfetti® Cake Balls. They’ll be the hit of your family gatherings and all your holiday parties.  I’ve already received tons of compliments and requests for the recipe.

White Peppermint Funfetti Cake Balls

Once the cake has cooled completely on a wire rack, crumble and mix with 3/4 of the Funfetti® frosting.

Melt the vanilla candy coating according to package directions and dip half of the cake balls into the candy mixture, covering completely. I use a fork underneath the cake balls to dip.  Immediately sprinkle with chopped M&M’s® Hot Chocolate & Milk Chocolate candies. Repeat with the remaining cake balls and the chocolate candy coating. Sprinkle with the chopped M&M’s® White Peppermint candies.  Let dry on the foil lined baking sheet.

White Peppermint Funfetti Cake Balls

You know what makes the holiday season even more special for my family?  Being able to give back to families in our community that need a helping hand. We’ve always tried to teach our kids to live by the golden rule.

How to Help Hungry Families in Your Community

I was beyond thrilled when I found out that I could purchase 2 bags of M&M’s® (9.4 oz. bags or larger) at Walmart, and up to a gallon of milk will be donated to the Great American Milk Drive.  It just so happens that Great Value milk and M&M’s® have starring roles in my White Peppermint Funfetti® Cake Balls, so that was easy. Click here to save $1.00 on ANY TWO (2) M&M’s® Chocolate Candies, 8 oz or larger.

White Peppermint Funfetti Cake Balls

Did you know that hungry families are missing out on important nutrients because milk is usually not a product that’s donated to local food banks?  For a small donation at pourmilklove.com, the Great American Milk Drive will deliver a gallon of milk to a family in need in YOUR community.

More than 46.5 million Americans, including one in every six children, relies on Feeding America food banks each year.  And milk is one of the most-requested food items, but it’s also one of the least donated food items.  I’ll be the first to confess that I have never thought about donating milk before.  My thoughts tend towards canned goods and non-perishables.

Please join me as I join Feeding America in The Great American Milk Drive.  This is the first national program to help deliver nutrient rich gallons of milk to families who need it the most. You can visit milklife.com/give and see how your small donation can go a long way to help hungry families.

I do hope you grab a glass of milk and try my White Peppermint Funfetti® Cake Balls. Don’t forget to wear that apron. 🙂  Click here to find more great recipes!
