If you’ve never consumed a cake ball you must go out and buy the ingredients now. I mean, it’s only 4 ingredients (3 if you don’t want to get all fancy with sprinkles). These would be the perfect, cute little treat for your loves on Valentine’s Day.
I chose to do funfetti this time around because it makes the cake balls undeniably cute and pretty darn irresistible. Biting into them and seeing all those sprinkles is so fun. Who doesn’t love sprinkles?
There are so many different flavor options and combinations for cake balls so mix it up if you want! The sky is the limit! I think these combo’s would be delish: chocolate cake with coconut pecan frosting dipped in dark chocolate, strawberry cake with strawberry frosting dipped in white or dark chocolate, lemon cake with cream cheese frosting dipped in white chocolate, red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting dipped in chocolate. If you really want to be an overachiever, you could make homemade cake and frosting. That was just too much work for me with the freezing required but if you have the ambition, go for it!
Funfetti Cake Balls
1 box Funfetti Cake mix + required ingredients on box
1 canister vanilla frosting
1 bag red or pink candy melts (or any color if you aren’t making them for Valentine’s Day or chocolate)
Sprinkles of choice
1. Prepare and bake cake according to box directions. Allow to cool completely.
2. Crumble cake and discard any brown or crispy edges. Mix cake crumbs with entire canister of frosting. Place mixture into refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
3. Roll cake mixture into uniform sized balls (I used my cookie scoop which is probably about 2 tablespoons). Place on wax paper then freeze for 1 hour.
4. Melt candy melts in microwave according to directions on bag. Dip cake balls in the candy melts and place on wax paper. Quickly sprinkle with sprinkles before they harden. Enjoy!
