  • 1 large egg 1 8-ounce container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Red and green food coloring
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the cake mix, egg, whipped topping, and vanilla.
  • Divide the dough in half and place one half in a second bowl. Add red food coloring to one bowl and green food coloring to the other. Add more food coloring to each as necessary until you reach the desired color.
  • Put the confectioners’ sugar in a medium bowl. Using a cookie scoop, shape the dough into 2-inch balls and place into the bowl of confectioners’ sugar. Roll around until covered. Place the balls on the baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake for 12 minutes, until set.
  • Cool for 5 minutes before serving
