This no bake cake batter balls recipe is my go-to dessert for literally any occasion. Another thing that is great about this recipe is that it’s super kid-friendly. If you’ve been wanting to get your kids in the kitchen with you, learning the ins and outs of baking, then this recipe is a great place to start.
This no bake cake balls recipe does use a little bit of cake mix. Some bakers might consider that cheating, but I always say the easier the better. Plus, there are so many great cake mix hacks out there that really make the whole baking process easier. You can make dump cakes, cookies, and even cake mix pie crust! The yellow cake mix in these gives them a distinct flavor that is hard to get with other baking mixes.
No Bake Cake Batter Balls Recipe
- ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup dry mix from a box of yellow cake mix
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons multicolor sprinkles
- 16 ounces vanilla flavored almond bark sprinkles for decorating
- In a large bowl with an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar for 1 minute until it is smooth. Mix in the flour, cake mix, salt and vanilla and then add milk by tablespoonsful until a soft, PlayDoh consistency. Mix in the sprinkles.
- Use a tablespoon-size measuring spoon or small ice cream scoop to portion out 24 pieces and roll each between your palms into a smooth ball. Place the balls on a wax paper or parchment lined bake sheet and chill for about 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place the almond bark into a microwavable bowl and warm in the microwave in 30-second bursts, stopping and stirring between each, until the coating can be completely stirred into a smooth coating.
- Use a skewer or two forks to hold the balls as you dip and swirl them into the warm coating. Return them to the lined bake sheet and immediately decorate each with some of the sprinkles. You will only use about 1/3 of the cake mix.
- Store the rest in an airtight container to make more balls later, or make a small cake using about 2/3 of the called for ingredients and baking in a 7 x 11 greased pan.
