Valentine Rolo Cake Balls


Picture this…sinking your teeth into a thick rich chocolate coating that is wrapped around some deliciously moist cake holding a gooey caramel center. Can you think of anything better? I say no way! If you want to treat yourself, and why shouldn’t you, then these Valentine Rolo Cake Balls will knock your socks off. Whether, you are making them for the kids, office mates, or a significant other, I’m guaranteeing that this will earn you major points…if they make it out the door that is

Servings—24 cake balls


1 box cake mix of your choice with ingredients
1 16 oz. tub of frosting of your choice
1 cup milk chocolate chips + more if needed
24 Rolos unwrapped
pink, red, white sprinkles
1-2 teaspoon vegetable oil


1.) Make cake according to directions in a sprayed baking pan.


2.) When cake has slightly cooled crumble it all into a crumb-like consistency using a fork.
3.) Place crumbs in a large bowl and mix in frosting until thoroughly combined.
4.) Chill bowl in refrigerator for at least 2 hour. The mixture MUST be cold before rolling into balls or they will become to mushy.
5.) Roll cake mix around the rolo making sure with hands into walnut-sized balls and place on parchment or wax paper. (make sure all the dough is formed around the Rolo)


6.) Put chocolate in a microwavable bowl for 2 1/2 minutes and melt until smooth stirring every 45 seconds. (If melted chocolate appears to thick add in 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil to thin it out.)
7.) Using two large spoons dip the cake ball into the chocolate to completely coat and place each one onto wax paper.
8.) Sprinkle with sprinkles on top and let set. (Work fast so the balls stay cold and the melted chocolate stays silky sheen.)


9.) Place in refrigerator for a couple of hours to firm up and ENJOY. (If you are in a rush place in freezer until set.)

Happy Valentine’s To All!
