I tried an easy pumpkin spice cake recipe and added cream cheese frosting to create a different kind of cake ball.

These yummy little cake balls are a great fall treat! Extremely moist, they remind us of a pumpkin pie. With the candy coating, you're going to find yourself saying "I'll just have one more" a lot. They'll be great for a party, tailgate, or wherever you need to bring a little dessert.
