Strawberries + Champagne Cake Balls
For the cake balls:
1 box strawberry cake mix
1 ¼ Cup champagne
1/3 Cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
16 oz white cake frosting
2/3 Cup diced Bobalu strawberries
For the Chocolate Shell:
24 oz white chocolate chips
4 Tbsp vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat cake mix, champagne, oil, strawberries, and egg at medium speed until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake according to package directions or about 30 to 35 minutes until a toothpick comes clean. Remove from oven and allow the cake to cool, then slice into squares. Crumble the squares of cake into a large bowl or stand mixer bowl with your hands. Add the frosting to the cake crumbles and mix with a whisk attachment on a stand mixer or hand mixer until evenly combined. Cover and place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight. Line a baking tray with wax paper. Form small round balls by rolling a rounded tablespoon worth of mixture between your palms. Place the balls on the prepared wax paper lined baking sheet. When balls are complete, place the baking tray in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
Melt the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave on 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until smooth. Stir in the vegetable oil. Remove the balls from the fridge. Drop balls one at a time into the melted chocolate, use a fork to scoop them out, wiping any excess chocolate on the rim of the bowl before transferring back to the wax lined baking sheet. Let them harden completely. You can declare them however you choose. We did a drizzle of white frosting with some blue sprinkles.
