Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Chilling time: 1 hour 20 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 5 minutes
Servings: 16 cake balls


  • 1 chocolate cake box mix (plus ingredients stated on the box)
  • 150 g chocolate fudge icing
  • 250 g milk or dark chocolate
  • Sprinkles (optional)


  • Start by cooking the cake according to the instructions on the box. I recommend baking it in an 8x10" cake tin until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool fully in the tin
  • Using a fork or your hands, break the cake up into loose crumbs, then pour it into a large mixing bowl
  • Mix in the chocolate icing with a rubber spatula or use your hands until fully combined
  • Scoop up one tablespoon of the mix and roll it into a ball. Repeat with the rest of the mix. You should have at least 16 balls in total
  • Place the balls on a plate or in a baking tray and freeze for 20 minutes to 1 hour
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second bursts, stirring in between, unitl runny and smooth
  • Using two forks, coat the cake balls in the chocolate one at a time, dripping off any excess
  • Place them on a cooling rack, quickly add the sprinkles to the top so they stick to the chocolate before it hardens!
  • Pop them in the fridge for 1 hour or until the chocolate has fully set
  • Store in an airtight container, in the fridge or at room temperature for up to 5 days
