Hey, M Girls! Our mouths were totally watering when we saw a pic of Debby Ryan's latest baking creation on her Instagram account. So natch, we had to ask Debby if she'd give M her secret recipe. Read what she sent us in response below!

Here's a simple recipe to make some yummy treats! These are super easy and really fun to make. We call them unicorn bites because I love to add sprinkles to the mix; you can use fun shapes, colors, seasonal themes, or whatever your favorite sprinkles are. It's pretty much a scientific fact that funfetti gives you magic super powers.

What You'll Need:

  • 1 box of cake mix

  • 1 case of your favorite sprinkles

  • 1 can of frosting

  • 1 bag of white chocolate chips


Start by preheating your oven, and make the cake following the instructions on the box. I like to bake them as cupcakes so more of the dough gets cooked and toasty. Be sure to let the cake (or cupcakes) cool long enough or the dough won't crumble and hold the shape correctly.

Now, we get messy! Make sure you're all washed because this is the hands-on part. Crumble about half of the baked cakes into a big bowl and start by mixing in a few spoons of frosting. Keep alternating ingredients until you find the perfect balance of cake ball deliciousness. Spoiler alert: These are about to be coated in sweetness, so make sure you don't overdo it on the icing!

Using two hands, roll cake into small, circular balls so that each one holds its shape. About two inches in size is a good start.

Tip: You can a little extra frosting if they need help staying together!

If you're feeling creative, now is the time to consider adding a little surprise in the middle of your bites. Again, I'm a sprinkle girl myself, but an M&M, a Hershey's kiss, or even some tie-dyed food coloring will jazz them right up! Once you rolled all your bites, put them into the freezer for about 10-15 minutes or until they are firm.

While those cool, melt down the white chocolate chips and pour them into a little bowl. Pull those chilled bites out, and dip; half way, all the way, double layers, it's up to you. Toss some sprinkles on and you're all done!

I wanna see how you make these yours! Tag me in your Instagram photo (@whoisdebbyanyway), you unicorn you.

XOX, Debby
