I really like the chocolate raspberry flavor combo. Adding it to this list of my favorite flavor combos and I came up with this cake ball recipe combo. It's great for gifts, Valentine's Day or any day. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

How to Make Chocolate Raspberry Cake Balls


  1. Prepare cake mix as instructed on box. Cool.
  2. When cooled, crumble cake into a bowl, and mix in just enough frosting so the mixture binds and is easily rolled by hand into balls (I usually use half the container of frosting).
  3. Add Raspberry liquor into frosting, stir well. Also add raspberry jam to your liking.
  4. Roll into bite-sized balls, and freeze for an hour or two -or overnight (optional, but highly recommended, as it helps them hold shape when dipping, especially when using toothpicks. I’d say don’t use a toothpick if you skip the freezer step.)
  5. Lay cake balls across parchment paper.
  6. In a microwaveable bowl, melt the candy bark as directed on package
  7. Using a toothpick (cleaner results) or two forks, dip (or roll) balls in melted chocolate.
  8. If frozen, work quickly to decorate right after dipping or coating will harden. If not frozen, they will not harden immediately and you can dip them all before decorating.
  9. Once all coated, allow to harden. You may now package them however you like, such as: in goodie bags, in mini cupcake wrappers, etc!
  10. If making cake pops, place each ball on stick and then freeze so they would be easier to handle when dipping into chocolate.
