Toffee Chocolate Cake Balls– With toffee in the middle, and more toffee sprinkled on the top, these cake balls are a toffee lovers dream!
Cake balls are all the rage right now. I am amazed by all of the elaborate cake balls and cake pops I see on Pinterest. Some of them are so darn cute I don’t know how people can possibly eat them. 🙂 I love coming up with cute versions, but sometimes I’m just in the mood for something a little more quick and easy.
I have professed my love of toffee in the past. I decided to add some toffee to my favorite cake ball recipe to see how it turned out. It was a huge success! On the first day the toffee bits on the inside are nice and crunchy. By the second day they start melting into little ooey gooey bits of toffee yumminess. I can’t even say which way is my favorite, I loved them both!
If you’ve never made cake balls before, you should really give them a try. It takes a little bit of time to do the dipping, but really they are very easy. And people just love them! I think they would be perfect for Valentine’s Day, which is right around the corner. I might even have to make some to give to myself. 😉

Toffee Chocolate Cake Balls
- 1 9x13" chocolate cake
- 1/4 cup butter, softened to room temperature
- 6 oz cream cheese, softened
- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup toffee bits
- 1 1/2 -2 pounds of dipping chocolate
- 1/4 cup toffee bits for garnish
- Make cake according to directions on box.
- Mix together butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla till smooth.
- Dump cake out into a large mixing bowl. (It doesn't matter if the cake is warm or cool.) Smash it up and add the frosting, then the toffee bits. Stir till everything is well mixed.
- Refrigerate till very cold.
- Roll the mixture into balls. At this point you can freeze them and store them in ziplock bags for a few months.
- Dipping: Melt your chocolate at half power in a glass bowl in the microwave. Stir every 30 seconds or so till the chocolate is smooth.
- Dip the cake bites into the melted chocolate one at a time. I either poke them with a toothpick, or use a baby spoon to dip them. Shake off the excess and place the cake bite on waxed paper to set up.
- Quickly sprinkle with toffee bits. (If the cake bites are frozen, they will set up very quickly.)
- Repeat till all the balls are covered in chocolate.
