How To Make Cake Balls

 No! Cake balls are not trying to replace the full richness of a real cake so they don’t taste nearly as rich or sweet. They are more like a light cookie dough ball dough with lots of frosting piled on top. In fact, I have had people tell me they were not fond of the taste of cake balls but decided to eat them because of the rich frosting on top.


How To Make Cake Balls


Ingredients: 2/3 cup of cake mix (I used 2 boxes) 1/3 cup of milk 1 bag of mini marshmallows, crushed into bits (about 10-12) Frosting: 1 1/2 cups of butter, softened 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted and lightly packed (you want a nice fluffy frosting)

Preparations: 1. Start out with a boxed cake mix and bake it according to the package directions. (If using a homemade recipe, you will need a baked cake) 2. Once the cake has baked or cooled, crumble or finely chop up into small pieces in order for them to be easier to work with later on... 3. In a stand mixer, combine ½ cup creamy peanut butter, 4 cups powdered sugar, and ¼ cup butter until smooth and creamy... 4. Mix the peanut butter mixture with the cake crumbs. It's easier to use your hands at this point, to incorporate. 5. Form the cake into small balls, by rolling between your hands... 6. Melt about 2 cups of chocolate morsels in a bowl for about 1 minute in the microwave at fifty percent power...  7. Dipping instructions...  8. Place one layer of cool whip on a plate or tray that you plan on icing the cake balls on and place them on top of it... 9.  Next, dip each cake ball into melted chocolate until it's entirely covered, placing it onto another plate or tray so that they cool and harden for about 5 minutes... 10. Repeat this process until you run out of cake balls. 11. Next, take your melted chocolate morsels and dip each cake ball individually into the chocolate. Allow them to cool and harden for about 5 minutes again...  12. Once they've hardened, place them onto a wax paper-lined cookie sheet so that they're easier to continue icing and decorating in the next step... 13. Once all of the cake balls are coated with candy, roll them between your hands to give them a more uniform look...  14. Take a handful of jelly beans and roll them into a ball as well...  15. Roll up the balls with one jelly bean inside for added goodness!...
