Cake Ball Truffle Recipe

Cake ball truffles are one of the easiest desserts to prepare. There are so many variations and they are always a guaranteed crowd pleaser. A great way to describe them is as little balls of heaven.

The traditional way to prepare cake balls is to mix together crumbled up pieces of cake with frosting. You then form this mixture into small balls and dip in melted chocolate. The original method, although yummy, is slightly different from the cake ball recipes provided below. These cake balls have been kicked up a notch!

The two cake ball recipes provided below are Heath Ball Madness and Brownie Lover's Truffle. The great thing about these recipes is you can use store bought prepared cake and brownies or use your own favorite recipe.

These cake truffles are a great little treat with big diversity. They can be given as gifts, made as favors and even be added to ice cream to create a fabulous dessert. Enjoy!
