Pumpkin Cake Balls

Fun cake alternative for your next birthday or cocktail party.

Cake

  • 3 cups GF Vanilla Cake Mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil or Canola Oil
  • 1 can Pumpkin (15oz can)
  • 2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

Frosting

  • 3/4 can Cream Cheese Frosting (make sure it's gluten free)
  • 1 pkg Chocolate Chips
  • 2 Tbsp Shortening or Oil

Directions

Cake

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a 9x13 pan.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine all cake ingredients and mix on low about 30 seconds. Increase the speed and mix 2 minutes.

Step 3

Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or center tests clean.

Step 4

Allow cake to cool on wire rack.

Step 5

In a large bowl, crumble cake (I used a wooden spoon, and this cake was rather dense, so it took a little effort).

Frosting

Step 1

Add 3/4 can of frosting to cake crumbs (don't use the entire can, or it will be too wet).

Step 2

Using a wooden spoon or hand mixer, mix the frosting and crumbs until moist and well combined.

Step 3

Form into balls (I made 36).

Step 4

In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and shortening, microwave in 30 second interval, stirring as needed, until melted and smooth.

Step 5

Dip cake balls into chocolate, and using a slotted spoon, fork, or one of those Easter egg dye dippers (some people prefer to use a toothpick, but this never works for me) coat the cake ball entirely in chocolate and allow to set on a foil or parchment-lined baking sheet. (Dipped cake balls can be placed in the freezer of refrigerator to speed up the chocolate setting).

15 cans of pumpkin? I'm assuming his isn't correct but what is the correct amount? I would love to make these!

Sorry for the confusion. The Pumpkin Cake Balls recipe should call for one 15 oz can of pumpkin, not 15. This will be corrected.
