Cake Balls

My friend Claire taught me how to make this delicious treat! These are the easiest dessert to make for any event. Also they are a great way to reuse leftover cake from a previous party or special occasion

All you do is bake a cake, crumble up the cake in a bowl and add a container of icing into the bowl of crumbled cake. Then mix it all together (better to use your hands). and make about a nickel-sized ball and place it in melted chocolate (you can use any kind of chocolate) and roll the balls in the melted chocolate until they are completely coated and place them on a baking sheet. The chocolate hardens quicker if placed in the refrigerator. After rolled in the chocolate, you can put toppings on the balls such as sprinkles, nuts, coconut, or anything that sounds yummy. Then you are done!


1 box of cake mix (red velvet, white, yellow, chocolate, confetti, etc…)
About 2 cups of melted chocolate chips (might need more or less depending on how many you make)
1 container of icing (whatever goes the best with your cake mix. For example: chocolate cake with chocolate icing)
