Cake Balls

A friend’s birthday was yesterday, and my husband’s birthday is tomorrow, so a mutual friend suggest that we make them Cake Balls. I hadn’t heard of Cake Balls, and they’re certainly more labor intensive than a regular cake, but they are delicious. We made two kinds of cake balls: vanilla cake with chocolate icing, dipped in chocolate; and chocolate cake with chocolate icing and peanut butter stirred in, dipped in melted peanut butter chips.

And yes, I know, our friend informed us that Cake Balls have made it into the popular discourse thanks to an interview with Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence, of The Hunger Games.


  • 1 cake mix, flavor of choice
  • 1 container of icing, flavor of choice
  • Chocolate chips for melting (or peanut butter chips, or butterscotch chips)


  1. Bake cake according to directions. Let cool (we popped it in the freezer to speed things up)
  2. Transfer cake to a bowl. Add 3/4 of a container of icing to cake and stir together
  3. Make well-packed balls about the size of aping pong ball
  4. Dip into melted chocolate chips
