What could be better than pumpkin spice and chocolate all in one bite? These chocolate dipped pumpkin cake balls are a great treat. I do not like the cold, but I do enjoy the fall treats. I also enjoy family time in the kitchen, so my daughter and I made these together last weekend.

This is an easy recipe that is also a great way to spend time together in the kitchen with your kids. You only need a few ingredients so let’s get started.

How to make Pumpkin Cake Ball Pops

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees before getting started so it will be ready when you are.

This easy recipe calls for combining the cake mix, pumpkin puree, nutmeg, and clove with a mixer until well combined.

Pour and spread the mixture into a lightly sprayed 9 x 13 cake pan. Then gently pour the milk over the top of the cake which made for a moist and delicious cake.

Place the cake in the 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes until a knife inserted comes out clean. Then let the cake cook.

While it’s cooling put the frosting in the mixing bowl and whip if for a couple minutes to make it light and airy and then crumble the cake in the bowl and mix until combined. Chill for 30 minutes.

After chilling the mix for 30 minutes form them into approx. 2″ cake balls and insert the sticks.

Put the cake balls back in the freezer while you melt your chocolate then dunk and place on wax paper to cool and harden.

Store in the refrigerator until they are gone.
