These Valentine treats are small, simple, and perfect for sharing. Pass them out to your friends, take them to work, or feed them to your sweetheart.

Or binge the batch alongside an entire bottle of champagne.

It’s Valentine’s Day. No judgment.

Prep time: 40 min Cook time: 30 min Ready in: 3 hours


  1. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl, and stir in the frosting until well blended.
  2. Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.
  3. Use a melon baller or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set.

Note: If you want to go the extra mile, cake balls can be rolled in nuts, sprinkles, coconut, etc. or double-dipped in white and dark chocolates. White chocolate confectioners’ coating is also called Almond Bark in some stores.
