Cake Batter Cake Balls

This recipe is my first attempt at the wildly popular phenomenon that is Cake Balls. Cake Balls are a beautiful thing because they are just a small taste of cake that you can pop in your mouth. They are also extremely cute and these Cake Balls, with sprinkles and yellow cake batter are addicting! I made them for a get together with new friends and they were a hit with the kids. I had to give them away to my neighbors to  ensure hubby and I would not consume the leftover dozen or so cake balls! 

Cake Batter Cake Balls
Makes 24-30 Cake Balls
For the cake balls:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup yellow cake mix
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons sprinkles
For the coating:
12 ounces almond bark or white candy melts
4 tablespoons yellow cake mix
1 teaspoon almond extract

Beat together butter and sugar using an electric mixer until combined. Add cake mix, flour, salt, and vanilla and mix throughly. Add the 4 tablespoons of milk and add 1 more tablespoon if needed to make a dough consistency. Mix in sprinkles by hand. 
Roll dough into one inch balls and place on parchment paper or wax paper lined cookie sheet. Chill balls in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm up. 
While cake balls are chilling melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Stir in between intervals. Once melted, quickly stir in cake mix until combined completely. 
Using a fork, dip cake balls into melted chocolate and shake off excess by tapping the bottom of the fork on the sides of your bowl. Place the cake balls back on the cookie sheet and top with sprinkles immediately after coating. 
Repeat with remaining balls until finished. Chill cake batter balls in the refrigerator until serving. 


  1. This cake balls are great and kids will love them.

  2. cake balls and cake pops are totally on my list of things to make. I want to make some pumpkin shaped ones for my nephews for halloween, but I've been trying to find orange melting wafers.

  3. I found you from Ally @ Sweet & Savory. Great blog and I am happily following you now.

    I am not a HUGE cake ball fan, but you won me over with Cake Batter... I will be making these soon!!!

  4. I've also seen them done by actually baking the cake and then crumbling it while still warm with frosting and making into balls.
