  • 1 Boxed Cake Mix
  • tub frosting
  • 1 package Vanilla Almond Bark


  • Prepare cake mix as directed. I needed to add 1 cup water, ? cup oil, and 3 eggs. I bake the cake in a 13 x 9 pan for 30 minutes at 350 F (175 C).
  • Let the cake cool for about 15 minutes and then crumble it! Yup, break it up into your largest bowl and then go to town. You might have to get your hands a little dirty on this one.
  • Scoop all of the frosting into the crumble cake and mix, mix, mix. I used a large wooden spoon and mixed it for a couple of minutes until it was well combined.
  • Take small amounts (about a tablespoon or so) and roll into a ball. Repeat multiple times. I lost count, but I think I was able to make 3-4 dozen cake balls.
  • Melt your almond bark as per the directions on the package (I only used just over half of the almond bark package). Dip each ball into the melted almond bark and place on a cookie sheet to cool. If you are having trouble dipping the cake balls in the almond bark, you can just spoon some almond bark over the cake balls and coat them manually (though this will take longer).
  • I like to store my cake balls in the freezer. I find they keep for quite some time and we like to eat them when they're nice and cold.


The cake balls are very sweet, so if you are making these for yourself or your family you will only need 1 or 2 for a yummy dessert. Enjoy!
