My first attempt at cake balls

I've been hearing all this talk about cake balls and I've even had a couple that were brought to our office and were pretty dang good so I decided I'd make my daddy some for Father's Day tomorrow. I made them tonight, chocolate cake, chocolate icing and chocolate candy coating. Chocolate Overload! 

First thing you do is make a cake.

This is the frosting I used but you can use any kind, 
any combination, that you like.

Let your cake cool for about 20 minutes and while it's still warm, 
crumble it up until it resembles dirt.  :)

Add the can of frosting and mix well.
Chill in the freezer for two hours.
If you don't chill the mixture,
the balls will crumble and fall apart.
Or so I heard.  :)

Melt the candy bark stuff in the microwave.

Shape your cake mixture into balls and dip the balls into the melted candy coating. This was the hardest part for me. Being the perfectionist that I am, it drove me nuts that I couldn't get them perfectly coated and smooth. If anybody out there knows how to do this, please comment and let me know! I used toothpicks and a fork. And they turned out like this.

They ain't Cadillac style but they ARE right tasty.


  1. Daddy gonna love them. They look yummy. can't wait to try them.
