Delicious Recipe

The Encouragers widow support group started a day time fellowship at our church last month in September. It was our first time to meet as a day group and we watched a fun movie, had refreshments and enjoyed fellowshipping with each other. I made Cake Balls to share that has gone over really good every time I make them. They’re so easy to make and thought you might want to make them the next time you meet with family or friends. Try ‘em, you might like ‘em!


1 box of cake mix, your preferance
1 tub of frosting, your preferance
1 pkg. almond bark, chocolate or vanilla


1. Make whatever flavor box cake according to directions, in a 9X13 pan.
2. Tear up cake and put in a BIG bowl. Now you add a tub of store bought frosting, choose flavor accordingly. Of course, chocolate with chocolate, white with white, cream cheese with yellow, etc. Let your imagination and your taste be your guide!
3. Squish your frosting into your torn up cake until it's like a play-dough consistency, & cake & frosting are evenly mixed.
4. You can either make balls with your hands, or whatever size scoop you want & let them dry for a bit on wax paper, some folks leave overnight; I put in freezer for at least 2 hours.
5. Melt almond bark in medium sized bowl in the microwave .
6. Dip cakeballs into melted bark & set on wax paper to dry.
7. Store loosely covered, they will keep a few days. I put in plastic bag in refrigerator and it will keep a week or so.

Fun fall color combinations
You will need three things for cake balls: cake, frosting and coating. Here are some ideas:

•Devil's food cake with fudge icing and dark- chocolate coating
•Yellow cake with buttercream frosting and orange-colored vanilla coating with green or black accents
•White cake with white frosting mixed with orange and yellow sprinkles and chocolate coating
•German chocolate cake with coconut- pecan icing and milk chocolate or light cocoa flavored coating
•Spice or carrot cake with cream-cheese frosting and vanilla coating
•Lemon cake with lemon frosting and vanilla coating


  1. I will have to try this recipe. Since my kids have food allergies, I will be using "special" cake mix", but hopefully it will still work. Keep posting yummy recipes!

  2. I used this recipe with great success- we shaped it inot a brain for a school project- and The boys loved it- ate it in less than 15 minutes!
