Chocolate Cake Balls

After making a homemade chocolate cake and having it not release from the pan, I decided to whip up some cake balls with left over chocolate frosting and some other ingredients. This turned out really good and is a chocolate lovers dream!

Chocolate Cake Balls


  • Excess chocolate cake
  • Any chocolate frosting—store bought or homemade
  • 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c. peanut butter
  • 1/8 c. margarine/butter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla flavoring


  1. 1. Crumble up the chocolate cake and place into a bowl. Mix in the chocolate frosting into the crumbled cake. You can eye ball the amounts for the frosting and cake.
  2. 2. Once the cake and frosting is completely combined, using your hands roll about 1 inch balls. Place the balls on a plate or container of choice that has been sprayed with non stick spray, or lined with wax paper.
  3. 3. Freeze the balls for about 2 hours.
  4. 4. Once the balls are frozen, in a bowl melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter, margarine, and vanilla flavoring together for about 30 seconds. Stir the ingredients, and then place back in microwave until completely melted together.
  5. 5. Using a fork, spoon, or your hands, roll the chocolate balls into the chocolate mixture and place back onto the sprayed pan.
  6. 6. Freeze balls for about 1 more hour or until hard.
  7. 7. Enjoy!

I couldn't understand what all the rave was about with cake balls, but I tried these anyway. THEY WERE FANTASTIC - what a hit! I decided to call them Cake Truffles since cake balls doesn't quite have the same pizzazz!


Hello, Can I use make these with Vanilla cake also? Do I use the same ingrediants as if I had chocolate cake?

Thank you so much Carissa
