DIY CARROT CAKE BALLS



How to Make Carrot Cake Pops

Four Parts:

Cake pops or balls are a great and unique way to indulge cakes without having to modify a recipe. Petite in size, they can be enjoyed by kids and adults for any occasion.


Makes: 48 cake balls

Ingredients

  • ¼ to ½ cup cream cheese icing
  • 1 bag (14 ounces) white or orange chocolate melts
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts, toasted

Steps

Creating the Cake Mixture

  1. Bake the cake.Follow the specific recipe you are using, including ingredient amounts, utensils and baking dishes, steps or instructions, oven temperatures, and baking times.
  2. Slice the cake.Using a damp knife, cut the cake in sections or quarters. This allows the insides of the cake to cool down faster, rather than having the cake cool down from the outside in.
  3. Crumble the cake.When the cake pieces has reached room temperature or warm to handle, use your hands to crumble the cake in a large mixing bowl. You will want to break down any chunks, especially any hard corners.
  4. Add the icing.Start off with 1/4 cup of icing in the bowl. Use a wooden spoon to thoroughly incorporate the cake crumbs and icing together until you achieve a consistency of dough, as if you're making cookie dough. Add additional icing, if needed.
  5. Refrigerate the mixture.Having the mixture chilled makes it easier for you to roll it into balls.

Making the Cake Balls

  1. Scoop the mixture.Use a cookie dough scooper to help you make even ball amounts, about 1 tablespoon (15 ml) (15 grams). To avoid multitasking, scoop the entire mixture and place the balls onto a flat surface (such as a baking sheet or counter top), lined with parchment paper.
  2. Roll the cake balls.Use both palms of your hands and circle each ball in a circular motion, to allow any flat surfaces become evenly round.
  3. Chill the cake balls.For the best results, it's recommended to refrigerate the cake balls for at least two hours. By doing this, any coating won't affect the prepared cake when dipping.

Dipping the Cake Balls

  1. Melt the chocolate.You can either use a microwave-safe bowl or create a double boiler. Stir the chocolate to make sure everything is melted evenly.
  2. Insert sticks into the cake balls.Prick them in the center, just enough to pick them up from the parchment paper and hold.
    • If you're wanting to present the cake balls on a stick, it's recommended to use lollipop sticks, which can be found in specialty baking aisles. Dip about 1/2 inch (1.27 cm) of the stick into the melted chocolate prior to inserting them into the cake balls.
    • If you're wanting to present the cake balls in decorative individual wrappers, poke them with toothpicks.
  3. Dip the cake balls.While holding the lollipop stick or toothpick, submerge the cake ball into the melted chocolate. When lifting it back up, gently lift them in a swirling motion or give them a gentle shake.
    • If you are using toothpicks, remove them from the balls. Add a very small amount of extra melted chocolate to cover the holes. You can use the back of a spoon to evenly spread out any extra coating as well.
  4. Repeat with the rest.Place the chocolate covered cake ball in the same place on the waxed paper. Pick up the next one and repeat the dipping until everything is covered.

Decorating the Cake Balls

  1. Drizzle additional melted chocolate on top.You can create even zig-zag lines by moving your arm back and forth in a uniform way across the entire sheet of cake balls.
  2. Sprinkle the walnuts on top.You can either sprinkle chopped chunks or use a food processor to create finely chopped pieces. You can also use other nuts, like peanuts, as a substitute if walnuts are unavailable.
  3. Chill the cake balls again.To ensure a hard coating and for any toppings to appear more uniform, place the cake balls in the freezer or refrigerator for about an hour or two.
  4. Finished.

  • If you want an authentic carrot "appearance", mold two tablespoons of the mixture together and form it into a triangle carrot shape before any dipping. After decorating and re-chilling the cake pops, poke holes at the top with toothpicks. Insert small strands of green edible grass in the holes.
  • These can also be created into small bars. Instead of rolling them into round balls, mold them into squares before any dipping.
