Cake Balls!

I had leftover Red Velvet cake batter left……I made about 2 dozen bite sized cake balls for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday……..they were gone in about 10 minutes!

Cake Balls!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups crumbled cake scraps
  • 2 Tbsp. confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder ( if cake scraps are not chocolate based)
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds, or any other nut you like, OR mini chocolate chips, M&M’s, get the idea! Smile
  • 2 generous shots of amaretto ( or any other liquer you may like) OR a good non-alcohol subsitution is any flavored coffee creamer)
  • * I used liquid French Vanilla*

Instructions

    Put all ingredients in a mixer and mix on medium speed until the ingredients form a ball. If the mixture seems too dry, add a bit more of the liquid used to make it moist enough to form into balls.

  1. Use a tablespoon sized cookie scoop to make balls uniform in size. Roll te scooped dough in your hands to form a nice smooth ball. Allow cake balls to set on a parchment lined cookie sheet for a couple of hours, then dip in choclate or roll in confectioner’s sugar or cocoa.
  2. * I made them tiny, like 1 bite sized….you determine your sizes.*

  1. I made these for my girlfriend bday party and they were gone!! people who don’t eat cake just love these. The one I made called for a little buttercream instead of powdered sugar, but still the greatest!!!

  2. When making a shaped or layered cake, one usually cuts the edges of the cake off, to make the finished product the right size/shape. The bits that are left over when you’re finished cutting off corners, ends and tops are “Cake Scraps”! Right now, though, I have a whole cake in the oven that is going to get crumbled up to make “Cake Scraps” for some cake balls, Hehe!
