Cake Balls!

My boys are starting to really enjoy cooking.
I am so glad that they want to learn.
Of course, it may have something to do with the fact that I told them that women love a man that can cook and clean.

They took it upon themselves to make a dessert for our Thanksgiving Dinner.

Cake Balls
This is a super-easy recipe that uses good old boxed cake mix.
Cake Balls.


One box cake mix any flavor.
One can of frosting any flavor.
Candy Bark coating.


1.) Bake the cake according to the directions on the box. (we bake it in a 13x9 pan) allow it to cool completely.

2.) When cake is completely cool, crumble it into cake crumbs. You do not want any large pieces left.

3.) add approx half of the container of frosting to the cake crumbs. Work it together until it is a molding clay-like consistency. (add more frosting if needed)

4.) Roll your cake-clay into approx 1 inch balls. Chill.

5.) Melt your candy bark coating.

6.) roll each chilled cake ball into the melted candy coating, set on parchment or wax paper to set up.

and Get Your Kids In The Kitchen!!!
You'll be glad ya did!

  4. They look really yummy!

  5. I can feel my teeth rotting just thinking about that!

    (But I think I'll make it anyway...Thanks!)

  6. These are so good aren't they? I made them for Thanksgiving too. I used spice cake with vanilla icing and rolled them in the white bark. I tried to tint the bark different fall colors but my colors made my candy seize up. It would have been such a pretty centerpiece on the dessert table. Oh well.

  7. I love cake balls. So easy yet so tasty! To be quite frank I don't even need them to be dipped. I like 'em just like that! Your sons' came out spendidly.

  8. We did this at my work about 10 years ago with cold day old brownies..crumble well then added choc.. frosting..rolled into balls..coated then with light powdered sugar or some we dipped in melted bark...these were called handmade cafe truffles..they are great..same can add extra extract flavoring or liquer to the brownie mix too after it was baked..more flavor..try these too..there great gifts in pretty tins for a gift.
