Pink Lemonade Cake Balls
I needed a perfect Summer treat for the weekend at the lake house and cake balls made the cut. I have always been apprehensive to make these for a few reasons. 1- they are impossible to keep pretty in a perfect circle, which doesn’t do much for the presentation. 2- I had no idea how I was going to bake a cake in ball form. All in all, I like easy recipes with delicious results and when I found this recipe I was sold. Thanks to mixandmatchmama, this recipe was a breeze. My pink lemonade cake balls turned out delicious!
*1 box cake mix plus the ingredients to make a cake per box directions (I used Pink Lemonade Cake Mix)
*1 can store bought frosting (I used Pink lemonade)
*8 oz candy coating (chocolate or vanilla…whichever you choose)
*Sprinkles, nuts, coconut…whatever you want to be on the outside of the cake ball
- I had to put the cake and frosting mix in the freezer for about 40 minutes and that made for much easier ball forming.
- When melting the chocolate, put a glass bowl on top of a pot with a little water in it so that the chocolate gets hot enough to melt, but it won’t burn.
- I didn’t use sprinkles and I wish I would have. I think the sprinkles are the trick to keeping the balls in a perfect circle. I had chocolate rings around the bottom of mine that didn’t look too pretty.
