These are seriously addictive! Unfortunately, there isn’t a set “recipe” to follow, but I promise you can make them. And you are only limited by your imagination….but yes, I will list a few great flavor combos to tempt your palate. I get requests for these every year and some friends say they won’t be my friend unless I give them more…more…more.
The cake balls are super easy. Crumble up a baked cake of your choice, add a liquid until you can form a ball when gently squeezing a handful of cake together (like the way wet sand does), freeze, dip in melted chocolate or roll in powdered sugar. YUM!
Here’s another picture:
Just a few Flavor Combos:
Chocolate cake, coffee as liquid, dipped in chocolate
Yellow cake, eggnog, dipped in white chocolate
Vanilla cake, pumpkin spice creamer, white chocolate
Choc cake, nutella, chocolate
Spice cake, cream cheese, white choc
*Soften or slightly melt “thick” liquids such as peanut butter, cream cheese, nutella….you want it to combine nicely with the cake.
*If using a perishable item such as cream cheese, creamer, eggnog….store your cake balls in the fridge.
*Keep formed (but not dipped balls) in the freezer until ready to use.
* Will keep months in freezer, a week or so in the fridge, and a couple days on the counter….if you don’t eat them all.
*Use add-ins such as chopped up cherries, nuts, candy pieces, or coconut.
These look wonderful!

What a great idea! It reminds me of something I did last year. I made a huge batch of chocolate fudge and it didn't get stiff enough. I just couldn't see throwing it all away, so I rolled it into little balls, froze them, and then dipped them in chocolate. Oh, my! They were way too good. I doubt I'll ever do it again, but it was nice while it lasted.
Now I know what to make my coworkers! Thanks!!!

Those are amazing,
Have a nice day,
We did crushed Oreos, cream cheese and dark chocolate. Yum! I'm thinking I want to try crushed golden grahams, marshmallow cream/flavouring and milk chocolate. S'mores!
Cake balls are so simple, so pretty and oh so amazingly delicious!
I have to admit I was skeptical about these cakeballs at first…even throughout the process of making them. But once all was said and done, and they had finished setting and unthawing (I kept trying to eat them when they were still frozen!), they were deliciously scrumptious!!! All four adults in the house were yumming and moaning! I used chocolate cake, almond chocolate milk and dipped them in melted nutella. I will definitely make these again. 🙂
