Butterfinger Cake Balls

I used to make cake balls a lot a few years back. I loved how easy they are to make and that there are so many different variations. I'm not sure why I stopped making them, but I know that it has been a long time.

When I saw these Butterfinger Cake Balls on A Blog About Food, I knew I had to make them. Butterfinger's are Nathan's favorite and I knew he would love these. When I showed him the blog post, he asked me to make them for Father's Day Thanksgiving (yes... that's how far behind I am in posting!).



They were so delicious and didn't last long. Thanks so much to Teresa for reminding me how wonderful cake balls are!

Butterfinger Cake Balls
Teresa - A Blog About Food


1 yellow cake mix
1 tub chocolate frosting
1 large bag milk chocolate chips
3-4 large Butterfingers bars, crumbled

Bake yellow cake according to directions. Once mostly cooled, crumble into a bowl. Stir in chocolate frosting until completely combined into a dough. Roll into small balls. Insert toothpicks for easy dipping and freeze for 1-2 hours.

Once the cake balls are hardened, melt your chocolate. Right after dipping them in chocolate, dip the tops in the candy, and place on wax paper, candy side down, for at least an hour to dry.
