Cake Balls

So I decided to make these on a Sunday night, so I had to use what I had available . . . you may have seen these before as “Cake Pops” . . . they have a sucker stick inside of them and look darling. However, I didn’t have any of those on hand, so we decided to go with “balls”. They are super easy to make and taste amazing!

Step 1: Bake a cake. Any kind of cake, either homemade or from a box. I made Devil’s Food cake . . . I wish that I would have had made Milk Chocolate, but it worked okay. Once it is totally cooled (I put mine in the freezer for about 45 minutes to cool it down super fast . . . I did read on some recipes that it said to let it cool overnight), put it in a bowl and crumble it up.

Step 2: Stir in your jar (or homemade) frosting. I did about 1/2 a cup at a time. Once it reaches a nice consistency that will hold together when you roll it in a ball, it’s perfect. :)

Step 3: Roll the mashed cake and frosting into balls. You can go as big or as small as you’d like. Stick them back into the fridge and let them set up.

Step 4: I have seen a lot of people use candy melts, but I just had white almond bark and it worked great (plus it is really cheap). I melted it on the stove top. I then used a skewer to dip each ball- I would poke it into the cake ball and dip it into the melted bark. I had to rotate it a lot to make sure it was evenly covered. Stick it back onto the pan or onto wax paper.

Step 5: Let them harden. I stuck them back into the fridge because I wanted them to harden quickly, but you could leave them out and they will be just fine. Decorate them with sprinkles or whatever you have before they harden.

That’s it! They are SO moist on the inside . . . that is why I love them. :) We took them to our new neighbors for St. Patrick’s Day.
