15.25 oz boxed lemon cake mix (Betty Crocker Super Moist recommended)

8 oz cream cheese, room temperature

12 oz yellow candy melts

4 oz white (vanilla) almond bark


Empty the cake mix, into a bowl that can withstand heat and microwave it in 30-second intervals (for a total of 60 seconds) stirring in between. Let it cool down completely.

Use a mixer to beat the cream cheese in a bowl until it becomes smooth (2 to 2½ minutes).

Sprinkle the cake mix over the cream cheese. Gently blend them together until they are just mixed.

Cover the mixture tightly. Place it in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Line a baking sheet, with parchment paper. Use a tablespoon to scoop out portions of the cheesecake mixture roll them into balls and then place them on the baking sheet.

In a bowl melt candy melts by heating them in 30-second intervals stirring each time until they become smooth.

Roll each cheesecake ball in the candy coating shaking off any excess. You can use a toothpick to remove any coating before placing them on the baking sheet.

Heat up almond bark in bursts of microwaving (30 seconds each) while stirring until it is fully melted.

Drizzle melted almond bark over your cheesecake bites. Refrigerate your bites until you’re ready to serve them.
