I have become something of a pro at making cake balls. I have been crafting these yummy little treats for almost 7 years and have come up with nearly 100 flavor combinations. Then I came across a recipe for no bake cake balls and I was intrigued. I have made a few slight alterations from the original recipe to suit my own tastes, and I must say they are delicious!

  • 1 cup cake mix from a boxed mix
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of a complimentary flavored extract
  • 1 package chocolate candy melts or confectionery coating
Stir together all ingredients except the candy coating and mix until well combined and you can form balls out of it (if it is too crumbly, add a little more sweetened condensed milk, too soft, a little more cake mix). Shape into uniform size balls and refrigerate for a half hour. Line a baking sheet with parchment or waxed paper and set aside. When ready, melt the candy coating in your microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each 30 seconds, until almost melted. Stir until completely smooth. Dip balls, one at a time, tapping on the edge of the bowl to remove excess coating. Place on baking sheet and allow coating to set completely before eating, storing or serving.

Some flavor combinations to consider: 
  • Chocolate cake with orange, raspberry or cherry extract
  • White cake with strawberry or orange extract
  • Strawberry cake with banana extract
