I was obsessed with cake balls last spring, and haven’t made them in quite awhile. I had to bring a treat to school for a coworkers birthday so I thought “why not?’ Yes yes I know they aren’t healty, BUT in a way they kind of are because they are small, so you can just hav one to satisfy your sweet tooth instead of a whole piece of cake! Also, they are super easy and there are so many different kinds to make!
you will need:
boxed caked mix and other ingredients needed for the mix (usually eggs and oil)
almond bark or some other kind of melting chocolate
I like to add almond extract to mine.
-bake cake according to directions on box (I add almond extract to batter here)
-let it cool, then crumble into a bowl
-add entire jar frosting, mix until, well, mixed!
-make into little balls (I use a cookie scoop)
-put in freezer for a few hours
-melt amond bark in a bowl
-dip frozen cake balls into chocolate
-add sprinkles if desired quickly before they dry!
I have done white cake, choc. cake, red velvet cake, white almond bark, choc. bark, whipped frosting, cream cheese, and buttercream. the whipped isnt as sweet as the others.
here are the ones I just made (ignore the chocolates in the middle)
Everyone raved about them and asked me for the recipe. yummo!
Bobby and I just went on a walk. Poor sweet Bella wants to go back outside so she sat by the door and whined.
Taking today off, running tomorrow morning. Bobby is in a commercial tomorrow afternoon so I won’t see a lot of him. I will blog more about that tomorrow 🙂
Have a great Friday night all!
It’s funny you posted about cake balls, because I have been craving them SO bad! I was going to make some for Easter and never got around to it. Yours look so yummy!!!
haha thanks! I haven’t made them in forever, and I needed something easy!
Those cake balls look yummy! I might have to try that, red velvet is my favorite! I have been thinking about trying to start running. Right now I walk my two Labs about 3-4 miles every day. Any advice on how to get started with running? Thanks!
labs love to run, I say let them (or one at a time haha) run with you!
have you ever heard of the couch to 5k program? google it, I have several friends wo have started running that way and love it! the key is to start slow so you don’t get injured doing too much too soon. With this program you build up tme and mileage every week and then should be able to run a 5k, then just start adding miles form there if you want to go further. I also cross train at least once a week and lift weights. hope that helps. you can e mail me if you have any other specific questions!
