Ok...I've got a winner. I used white cake with leftover bavarian cream, then it was too wet. I added powdered sugar and crunched up some cheap dollar store chocolate chip cookies, and mix it up. Then I dunked them in chocolate. Yummy! It tasted like chocolate dipped cookie dough!


That sounds so good yummmmmmmmm-o!!!

I tried it for the first time a few nights ago.I used Devils Food Chocolate I think I had them a lil too wet.. (too much Icing.But I figured it out.. heheh.) but I put them in the Fridge and got them cold, then I took them and dipped them into Chocolate Almond bark,,(which was really thick.. Need a trick or tip to thin it just a bit) But Dipped them anyway, let them all cool then I put them back in the fridge,, hubby took them to work & the guys were like GIMMIE MORE!! They are sooooo GOOD though.. I can't wait to try the white cake with Strawberry filling.. Yummmyy. this makes me want to go bake a cake just to make more. Next time I will do an assortment, icing, peanut butter and depending on the mix filling or pudding.. yummy.. Thank you all for the Wonderful Ideas!

I only made cake balls once. I used cookiemans recipe with chocolate cake, rum for the liquid and added mini chocolate chips. Then I dipped them in semi-sweet chocolate. The other half, I used French vanilla creamer for the liquid and added chopped nuts. I dipped these in milk chocolate. Both of them were very popular with the tasting committee.

What do you find is the best way to dip these. Mine tasted great, but didn't look so hot!

I like the candy melts. I have a small crockpot (the kind made for dips) and I melt my melts in that and then I use someone else's tip on here of breaking the two center prongs out of a plastic fork and using it to dip. It works great. I usually dry mine on my cooling rack over a cookie sheet.

I made the cake balls only once and loved them. I had choc. cake scraps and I used a purchased vanilla icing, (cheepest brand I could find, since I didn't have time to make my own icing) and dipped them in the Wilton's choc. melts. Everyone loved them.

If your chocolate is too thick, just add a little crisco in the chocolate before melting it ! I've always used the butter flavored crisco but I am sure the regular is ok too!

OK, guys my sister and I were messing around with some ideas in the kitchen tonight and came up with the most delicious cake ball I have ever personally tasted! We had some strawberry cakes just plain made from a mix strawberry flavored cakes.... 2- 6 in. X about 3 in.
We put 1/4 c. cream and 3/4 c. milk in the KA and a box of vanilla pudding mix, and blended it. Then we added a 1/2 of an 8. oz. block of cream cheese and added maybe 1/8 c. of the strawberry glaze that you put on cheesecake in there and mixed it....then added the crumbled cakes and mixed for a little bit and..OMG!!!! Then we covered the balls in White chocolate and sprinkled them with toasted chopped pecans...TO DIE FOR!!!!! Kind of tastes like a creamy strawberry cheesecake with white choc on it...MMMMMm

Now that sounds good KayDay! You two really got creative.

Paramount Crystals are also good for smoother chocolate.

abbey - I can't belive I never thought of using my mini crock pot to melt my chocolate for dipping. OMG what a goof I am . Definalty doing that next time.

I never have any scraps left because my boyfriend justs eats them. So I haven't had a chance to make any. Next time I make a cake, I will have to slap his hand. I really want to try the ones with PB.

Well, this is definitely new to me. Sounds great.

I think I understand how they are made, but does anyone have any pictures they could post, so I can see what they look like?

Also, are there any approximate measurements as to how much cake you should use to how much liquid (or is it icing?) icon_confused.gif

Please clarify. icon_redface.gif

Thanks!

When I made mine, I did them about two bites size. I used a tablespoon scoop, but made them a tiny bit smaller than that. I'm not sure what size everyone else is doing. Are they supposed to be the size of a cupcake, or mini cupcake..... What size does everyone make theirs????
