Makes24 cake balls

Preparation Time15 min



  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 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


  1. 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, Play-Doh consistency forms. Mix in the sprinkles.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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. IMPORTANT NOTE: You will only use about 1/3 of the cake mix.

  5. 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.

We made these for a recent sleepover of a bunch of 8 year olds and did they enjoy them or what! Some wanted a chocolate coating so they divided into 2 groups and did the coating part themselves. Such fun! I would definitely recommend these No Bake Cake Batter Cake Balls for any kids get together ))

I bet the kids will go wild for these. And you can glam them up so many ways.

Omg, I'm just sitting here drooling over these little cake balls. Perfect for a summer party treat! I'll have to try them before fall :)

No bake? Amazing!

These were tasty, but just a bit too sweet for my liking.

I didn't love the candy coating on these cake balls, but the taste of the filling was delicious.

I've tasted a lot of cake balls, but these might just be my favorite. Tasted like pure cake batter, which is my guilty pleasure.

These tasted like birthday cake should! They were super sweet, but I loved them. The sprinkles added a great bit of texture

Definitely treats for someone with a sweet tooth. These really were moist--kind of made me feel like I was stealing batter from the bowl!

So yummy! Way moister than any cake I've ever eaten.

These were a bit too sweet for my taste, but they'd be great to bring along to a house party.

These were incredible! Tasted like a cookie dough ball covered in white chocolate. Much better than a cake texture.

These little cake balls are just the right amount of dessert! Super sweet and dense and I love the no-bake aspect.
