  • Cake Balls On Sale

    Publix has the cake mix, buy 1 get 1 free and the frosting. They have the mix a lot of times on sale but never the frosting. So since my daughter is getting into cooking I'm going to let her make those for Grandma's holiday gathering.

      Re: Cake Balls On Sale

      I'm making them this year for my mail carriers, I'm using white cake, lemon iceing and yellow gel icing and white bark. I also bought the little cups that look like muffin papers to put them in and some inexpensive christmas container at odd lots.

        What are "cake balls"?
        I did a search and got no results. A recipe I'm guessing? Can someone point me in the direction of where it might be posted?
        Thanks

          The Pioneer Woman made some at halloween. It shows you, with pictures also, step by step how to do them. She colored her chocolate/almond bark, so don't let the green color turn you off. They are really good. I'm going to make some for Thanksgiving also.

                      Okay, I tried to find the recipe there, but didn't see it. Am I blind...or what?

                        It Usually Gives You A Link To Click On That Makes The Recipe "printer Friendly" But This One Doesn't (the Pioneer Woman, Link Above). But It Tells You The Recipe In The Paragraph's Between The Recipes.

                          CAKE BALLS

                          1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
                          1 (16 ounce) container prepared chocolate frosting ( I used Duncan Hines..not whipped)
                          1 (16 ounce) bar chocolate flavored confectioners coating or almond bark (many people said more than16oz is needed)

                          1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl (into tiny crumbs) and stir in the frosting until well blended.
                          2. Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water,(or a double boiler) stirring occasionally until smooth.
                          3. Use a melon ball or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Place on a cookie sheet in the freezer for several minutes to make dipping easier. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set.

                          NOTE: This recipe is very versatile and heavily addictive. You can mix and match cake and icing flavors as well as the chocolate coatings. If you want to go the extra mile, cake balls can be rolled in nuts, sprinkles, coconut, etc. or double dipped in white and dark chocolates. Chocolate confectioners' coating is also called Almond Bark in some stores. If the balls are not frozen/cold, your finished product will not have a smooth coating. It will be lumpy and full of crumbs. These are easy enough that someone who doesn't cook can make them without difficulty. Many people commented that they taste like donut holes, only better.

                          Variations/flavors:

                          White cake mix and mint chocolate chip icing - Dipped in chocolate confectioners coating.

                          Strawberry with vanilla frosting, dipped in chocolate.
                          Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, dipped in white almond bark.
                          Chocolate cake, chocolate icing and Andes candy bits. If you like Girl Scout Thin Mints you will love these.
