Carrot Cake Balls


For the Cake Balls:

  • 1 box of carrot cake mix (plus eggs, oil, and buttermilk instead of water as per box instructions)
  • 1 small bottle of buttermilk
  • 1 cup grated carrots (optional, for extra texture and flavor)
  • 1 batch of cream cheese frosting (for mixing into the cake)

For the Cream Cheese Frosting (for mixing into the cake):

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the White Chocolate Coating:

  • 12 ounces white chocolate, chopped

For Decorating:

  • 1 bottle of Easter-themed sprinkles


  1. Preheat your oven according to the cake mix box instructions.

  2. Prepare the cake batter following the box instructions, using buttermilk instead of water. Fold in the grated carrots if desired.

  3. Bake the cake in a greased 9x13 inch pan until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow it to cool completely.

  4. To make the cream cheese frosting for mixing into the cake, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth in a large bowl. Gradually add powdered sugar and vanilla extract, mixing until well combined.

  5. Crumble the cooled cake into a large bowl, ensuring no large chunks remain. Mix in all of the cream cheese frosting until the crumbs are moist and can hold a ball shape.

  6. Form the mixture into 12 evenly sized balls and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

  7. Chill the cake balls in the refrigerator for about 1-2 hours, or in the freezer for about 30 minutes, until firm.

  8. Melt the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl over simmering water or in the microwave, stirring occasionally until smooth.

  9. Dip each cake ball into the melted white chocolate using a fork, allowing excess chocolate to drip off.

  10. Place the dipped balls back on the parchment paper to set. You can refrigerate them for a firmer coating or leave them at room temperature for a softer finish.

  11. Once the chocolate coating is firm, decorate the cake balls with Easter-themed sprinkles or any desired designs.

Enjoy your delightful carrot cake balls!
