Almond Crunch Cake Ball Pops is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this recipe! I got so many comliments on how great they were. I am becoming obsessed with cake pops. They are very easy to make and you can be simple or creative with decorating. The only time consuming part of this process is rolling them into balls. I found with my first batch if I didnt roll them well they broke off when dipping, so definitely invest the time to make "solid" balls. And if some do break off, that just means there are more for you to eat. It's really a win-win.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great basic recipe. I have been a cupcake-cake nut for awhile and am new to cake balls. This recipe works really well using a Banana Cake mix & either vanilla or banana pudding..... yummy
