Here is a tutorial on how to make some very yummy Cake Balls. I first saw this on Making Memories… One Fun Thing After Another and I thought it would be SO CUTE to try this for 4th of July weekend and take them to TN. So here is my version of the cake balls which were a HUGE hit with everyone that tried them.
-Cake mix of your choice- I made two different kinds: Devil Foods and Funfetti
-Can(s) of frosting (one for each cake mix if you make more than one)
-Candy Melt chocolate or chocolate bark
– Sprinkles or colored sugar
-Cookie dough scoop (optional but good to use to make sure they are all the same size).
Unfortunately, this is where my pictures end of the making process. My hands were a little messy so it was not a great idea to pick up a camera so I will just write the rest of the steps.
-After your icing is mixed in, melt your chocolate. I bought red, white, and blue candy melts so I placed them each in their own bowl. I then just melted them in the microwave but you can melt them in a double boiler as well.
-Once your chocolate is melted, grab your cookie scoop and scoop out some of the cake/icing mixture. Now this is where I started to have some trouble. The first few I made fell apart once I put them into the chocolate to cover. So instead of dropping the cake straight into the chocolate, I put them in my hands and squeezed and rerolled them to make sure that they were tight.
-Then, drop in chocolate. I found it best to take a spoon and spoon the chocolate onto the ball, and then remove from the chocolate with a fork.
-Place chocolate covered cake ball on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper so it doesn’t stick.
-While the chocolate is still soft, sprinkle with sugar or sprinkles. You could also drizzles more melted chocolate on top.
-Let chocolate harden completely. And store or the best part- EAT! 🙂
Here is my final result.
Hope you try these. They take some patience but are well worth it in the end! They would be great for any get together or even a birthday party! If you make them, would love for you to share them with me. Enjoy!
