Can I use Starbucks flavored syrups as the binder in cake balls?

Most any liquid will work, just use care not to add too much moisture

Thanks, JoAnnB! I have some syrup on hand my ILs sent. I'll have to try it. Do I put in just enough to make everything stick together?

Otherwise it becomes a wet gooey mess. A squeeze bottle will give you a bit more control.

I use them. They flavor the cake well. I noticed with the syrups you need to be almost more careful though because a little bit goes a very long way, even more so than other forms of liquid (which sounds odd I know)
