Have you been to some party with individuals walking around with huge smiles on their own faces holding little treats within their hands? These are cake balls and they are the new dessert star.

Made with scraps of cake, a binding and chocolate or confectionary coating, they're simple to make and assemble. Crumble the cake into a bowl, and add some liquid to bind it together. Unsure just how much? Add a little at a time until it's the consistency of cookie dough. Frosting, liquid coffee creamers, ganache, caramel, fruit preserves, and liqueurs are all good to use inside your cake balls. Be as adventurous as you like but be careful adding the liqueur flavors. A little goes a long way. Use a cookie scoop or melon baller to make your cake balls. Then put them on the parchment lined cookie sheet pan, and chill for 5-10 minutes within the refrigerator.

Empty a brand new bag of candy melts in to the surface of a double boiler or microwave save bowl and melt till smooth according to the directions on the bag. Remove 10 cakes balls from the refrigerator. You don't want them returning to complete room temperature before they're drizzled with chocolate. Use a craft stick dipped partially in the chocolate to press into each cake ball. This will help keep the cake balls from sliding off into your melted chocolate.


Dip the ball down completely into the melted chocolate and remove. You may have better results should you dipped the cake balls at an angle. Turn the wedding cake ball over to take away the excess chocolate. Some people tap the wedding cake ball up against the advantage of the bowl to remove the excess. Experiment to see what works good for you.

Use another parchment lined cookie tray, line up your chocolate-covered balls. Keep repeating with the rest before you are finished. If you want, you are able to drizzle a different color across the top, dip them in nuts or coconut or add decorations at the moment. Once you're done, place them during the refrigerator.

They can be put into cellaphane bags with pretty bows and tags and arranged on trays for special attractions.
