Snowman Mickey Cake Balls

Ingredients

1 box chocolate cake mix * 1 cup water * 1/2 cup oil * 3 eggs * 2 packages white chocolate melting wafers * 1 container chocolate frosting * 1 tube black cookie icing * 1 tube orange cookie icing * 1 package Twizzlers peel and pull

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees f. Place liners into the spaces in the cupcake pan. Prepare the cupcakes according to the instructions on the back of the box. Fill the cupcake liners 3/4 of the way and bake for 21 minutes. Once the cupcakes have baked, place the pan onto a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Remove the cupcakes from the cupcake pan and set aside until they have completely cooled. Remove the cupcake liners and place the cupcakes into a large mixing bowl, about 5 cupcakes at a time. Use your hands to break up the cupcakes into fine crumbs. Add 1 1/2 spoonfuls of frosting and mix until combined. The cupcake mixture should resemble cookie dough texture. Use a small ice cream scoop or tablespoon to scoop some of the mixture into your hands, then roll into a ball to make the snowman's head. Using 1 package of Ghirardelli chocolate, pair up 2 wafers with the 12 cake balls that you are using for the snowman's head. Place a wafer into each corner of the cake balls where ears would go. Repeat the above steps with the remaining 11 head cake balls. Place onto cookie sheet fitted with the parchment paper. To make the bottom of the snowman, use a bigger ice cream scoop to scoop some cake ball mixture into your hand, then roll it into a ball twice the size of the head Place into the freezer for overnight. Use a double boiler to melt the second bag of white chocolate wafers. Once the chocolate has melted, take the cake balls out of freezer. Carefully peel the larger cake ball off of the parchment paper. Carefully dip the whole cake ball into the chocolate. Very gently shake off excess chocolate and then place back onto the cookie sheet. Repeat this step with the remaining bottoms. Carefully dip the head into the melted chocolate and then carefully place the head onto the center part of the body Let the chocolate harden. Peel a twizzler strand off and tie it around the neck of the snowman to create a scarf. Use the black cookie icing to pipe on the coal for the body and the face. Use the orange cookie icing to pipe on the nose. Let dry for 30 minutes before enjoying!
