NILLA Holiday "Cake" Bites Recipe

Ingredients

  • 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, decorating icings, and/or additional melted vanilla candy wafers tinted red and green

Instructions

  • 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 drizzle with decorating icings or melted candy wafers, sprinkle with crushed candies or sugar and/or 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.

SubstitutePrepare using 2 pkg. (4 oz. each) white or semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted as directed on package, and omitting vegetable oil.

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.
