Cake Balls

  • 6 vanilla cupcakes made from Swerve Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tbsp heavy whipping cream

Chocolate Coating

  • 5 ounces sugar free chocolate (white or dark, or you can do half of each)
  • 1/2 ounce cocoa butter


  • Sugar-free sprinkles
  • Ground ginger


Cake Balls

  1. Crumble the cupcakes into the bowl of a food processor and add the cocoa powder, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. Pulse a few times to combine.
  2. Add the cream cheese and whipping cream and process until the mixture clumps together on one big ball.
  3. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm, 1 to 2 hours.

Chocolate Coating

  1. In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, combine the chocolate and the cocoa butter (if doing half white and half dark, you will need two separate bowls). Stir very frequently, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.
  2. Dip the frozen cake balls in the melted chocolate, tossing to coat with two forks. Lift out and tap the fork gently on the side of the bowl to remove the excess chocolate.
  3. Place the dipped balls onto a waxed paper lined tray to set. Sprinkle the tops with sprinkles or ginger immediately after dipping, before the chocolate sets. You can also use leftover white chocolate to drizzle over some of the dark chocolate coated truffles and vice versa.

Notes: 6 cupcakes is only half of the Swerve Vanilla Cake Mix. You can make all 12 and use the other cupcakes for another purpose or you can measure out half the mix and simply make 6. Or you can go really crazy and double this recipe, and make 48 cake balls! Great for giving away as gifts.
