NILLA Holiday "Cake" Bites Recipe


  • 36 NILLA Wafers
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 1/4 cup raspberry jam
  • 8 oz. vanilla candy wafers (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1 Tbsp. oil
  •  Assorted decorations: crushed starlight mints, colored sprinkles, small round candies, coarse sugar and decorating icings


  • Brush  flat sides of 24 NILLA Wafers with juice, then spread with jam.
  • Place  remaining wafers, rounded sides up, on waxed paper-covered baking sheet; top each with 2 jam-topped wafers, jam sides down. Refrigerate 6 hours or until firm enough to handle.
  • Melt  candy wafers as directed on package; stir in oil until blended. Dip NILLA stacks, 1 at a time, in melted candy wafers, turning to evenly coat stack and reheating candy wafer mixture if needed. Return to baking sheet. Immediately add decorations to resemble photo.
  • Refrigerate  30 min. or until candy coating is firm. Keep refrigerated.

Recipe Tips

Size WiseEnjoy your favorite foods on occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.

NoteKeep the stacked cakes refrigerated until ready to dip them in the melted candy wafers. Work with a couple at a time so they remain firm, which makes dipping them easier.

NoteThese easy-to-make cakes can be refrigerated up to 24 hours, or frozen up to 2 weeks, before coating with the melted candy wafers and decorating as directed. If frozen, thaw in refrigerator before dipping and decorating as directed.
