Cake Balls Recipe

Cake Balls - that sounds tempting right?! When I was planinng and listing down recipes to try for christmas , cake balls had the first priority as it was easy to make and no risk involved as I wanted to play safe for the first try....I just modified my cake pops recipe and made a easy version of cake balls with easily available ingredients in your pantry.As I expected they were quite delicious and mittu loved it to the core....She has not yet started liking nuts so made one nut coating and the other 2 topping I made it to her liking and she was extremely happy to see the colorful cake balls when she was back from school. She relished each ball and the expression on her face said it all :)

I made only 1 cake ball with cocoa coating as I know no one at home likes the bitterness.......but I just love it so made one for my sake and enjoyed it thoroughly......I loved nutella truffles to the core and am waiting to try chocolate truffles soon.

Cake Balls Recipe

My Notes:

  • Chilling overnight is best before shaping as it holds the shape well.
  • Make sure your mixer is dry while grinding the nuts.I missed to check the mixie and it was wet hence the nuts was not completely dry as you can see.
  • Be creative and use your favorite topping...You can use icing sugar,powdered mixed nuts etc.
  • You can even coat the balls in melted chocolate sauce made,drizzle with white chocolate and refrigerate it until the chocolate is set.
  • Keeps well for 3 days under refrigeration , depends on the freshness of the cake too.
  • You can also use ready made chocolate sauce instead of melted cooking chocolate
  • If the cake is very dry then you may require little more butter and chocolate sauce to bind it together as a dough. My cake was very moist so have given the measure accordingly.
  • Dont let the cake balls in room temperature for more time as the topping might become moist.
  • You can even use readymade chocolate cake and skip cooc powder and chocolate sauce.
  • You can even add 1/2 cup powdered biscuit(digestive biscuits).
