Cake Balls.

I am a HUGE truffle fan. It literally is pretty much all I make. Cinnamon balls, peanut butter balls, now cake balls... be prepared for the future all it is, is balls. balls. balls. Well I actually had heard about these a long time ago but I always thought it was pointless to bake a cake just to ruin it. So I never put the time into it.  Well it was Rachels birthday this past sunday and I made her a 4 layer cake.  In order to make them stack perfectly I had to cut off the top of each layer so it would lay flat.  I then frosted the cake and realized I had extra frosting, and extra cake. Obviously my mind flew back to cake balls and how I wanted to try them but never wanted to ruin a beautiful cake. This was the time. I crumbled the extra cake and mixed the frosting in. Then i made them into balls, froze them and dipped them. They were delicious and they are so cute. I highly recommend them!

Cake Balls
{this recipe was adapted from Bakerella}

1 cake box mix. {i used funfetti.}
1 can of frosting.
1 bag of white chocolate chips.
Sprinkles for decorating.

Prepare the cake by following the directions on the box and cook for alloted time.
Let the cake cool completely.
Crumble up the cake and mix in the frosting.'
{you might not use the entire can. Just put enough in for the crumbs to stick together and form balls.}
Roll into 1 inch balls.

Freeze for about an hour.
{or until you think the balls will stay intact while dipping.}
Once ready to dip, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 sec increments stirring between each one.
Dip each ball.

Sprinkle each truffle as you go before the chocolate hardens.

There are many different variations you could try:

  • Chocolate Cake dipped in Milk Chocolate.
  • Chocolate Cake dipped in Melted Peanut Butter Chips.
  • White/yellow/funfetti dipped in Milk Chocolate.

Your options are endless!! If you try these with a different variation post about it and send a link to us so we can check it out!!
