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 and decorating icings

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 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.
