Valentine's Day Cake Balls Recipe #ValentinesDay

Valentine’s Day Cake Balls Recipe

Love is in the air. My love of all things cake, that is. Yes, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to indulge in some sweets again. While I do enjoy chocolate from time to time, I’m much more about things like cake and cookies. But I love a good bite sized treat as well. So that’s why cake balls are one of my favorite goodies to make. This year I thought I’d share my Valentine’s Day Cake Balls recipe!

You can make these with any type of cake mix you like. But for Valentine’s Day, I try to find some cherry chip or strawberry cake mix to stick with the red, pink, and white color theme. These were made with cherry chip but I’ve done the strawberry dipped in vanilla and it is a fabulous combination too!

You can check out all of my cake ball combinations as well. Get inspired!

Tasty Valentine's Day Cake Balls #ValentinesDay

The thing I love about cake balls is that you can try pretty much any flavor combination that you want. We haven’t met a combination we didn’t like. You can also change up the sprinkles for different holidays or make a Valentine’s Day assortment with different types of sprinkles.

You could even get a bit of food coloring involved and turn an ordinary white cake into a pink cake for Valentine’s Day. Then make your cake balls. Or use pink candy melts!

What flavor combination would you try for your Valentine’s Day Cake Balls?

  6. I love this! So much easier than buying a kit. I cannot stand to buy a kit for every little thing… there has to be a “less space taking in my kitchen” solution for them. Thank you! Now we CAN enjoy these goodies without purchasing an unnecessary kit!
