Happy Easter long-weekend everyone!

Genius.

I had some leftover nutella buttercream and didn’t know what else to do with such a small amount. Cakepops and cakeballs were perfect – they don’t require much icing because the cake is already moist.

  • 1 pkg chocolate cake mix
  • 2/3 C nutella buttercream

Here’s the gist of what I did. For more detailed instructions, visit Bakerella’s amazing site.

  1. Bake cake as directed.
  2. Once cool, crumble cake and mix with icing.
  3. Shape into balls, insert a lollipop stick, then coat with chocolate.

They are so yummy and make great treats to give away.

Plus, the lollipop stick makes them both practical and fun! =D

Hope you all enjoyed this more recent ‘surprise post’. I’ve written quite a few older recipe posts that will continue to be released every few days, but I’ll do my best to throw in more recent ‘surprise’ posts, between the old recipes. Have a great weekend!

    Although these things are very cute, once the procedure for making them is known I feel it’s like 2nd hand food. If you had a couple of leftover costco muffins, you can turn them into cakepoffins; or frozen cheesecake bites encased by cookie crumbs or a smashed candy bar?

      This is true. First time trying these with cake and there’s definitely no way around it unless you buy the kit and shaper. Cheesecake would be good. Doughnut holes would probably work too
