Cupcake Bites

by Janet21

Cupcake bites are super cute mini cupcakes wrapped in chocolate that you can serve at birthday parties, baby showers, bridal showers and other celebrations.

Cupcake bites have become a very popular party treat. These adorable cupcakes are simple to make and will look lovely displayed on your party table in a stand, vase or in a custom made centerpiece. You can also send these cupcake bites home as party favors by wrapping them in FDA approved bags and attaching colorful curling ribbon.

There are three fun ways to make these cupcake bites. You can use a candy mold, flower cutter or the My Little Cupcake Mold. You have the option of creating these bites on a stick as a cake pop or without a stick.

Please visit my Cake Push Up Pops page for more sweet treats that come in small packages!

Cupcake Bites Using a Flower Cutter

Follow Steps 1-4 in the instructions above first, then:

  2. After all balls are shaped, place in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes
  3. Dip the bottom part of the cupcake balls into melted chocolate and drip off any excess chocolate
  4. You can place a stick into the cupcake bite at this point if you like

No Bake Cupcake Bites

Using the My Little Cupcake Mold

The My Little Cupcake Mold can also be used to create cupcake bites pop.  These cupcake bites require no baking. 

All you need is the mold, a package of oreo cookies, cream cheese, chocolate melts, lollipop sticks and sprinkles.

Basically, you grind the oreo cookies in a food processor and then mix the cookie crumbs with cream cheese.   Form your cake balls and then place them into the My Little Cupcake Mold.    Close the mold and remove any excess cake.  Pop the cupcake bite out of the mold, dip in melted chocolate and insert a lollipop stick.  Then, dip the other side of the cupcake in chocolate and add your spinkles and other decorations.

Thanks Katie! I have made these cake bites myself and loved them, too. Red velvet...yummy! :)

These are so delicious, I tried them, loved them. I have a friend who gave this a go using red velvet cake mix and they were amazing. You could add that to this page, red velvet cake bites very very good, it's all good as you made it so clear and easy adding any flavor. Great idea, going to use your cake bites a lot!

okay Janet my mouth is beyond watering. I may just have to make cupcakes tonight. Can't do your bites yet because I don't have the mold. I think I'm going to try these at our next library bake sale. Can't write anymore, I need chocolate cupcakes really bad right now!
