Mummy Cake Balls

Mummy Cake Balls are an adorable Halloween dessert that is super easy to make and so fun for the kids to help! They are made with a box cake mix, cream cheese, almond bark, and candy eyes.

Mummy Cake Balls

Since having kids, it has been so much fun making holiday themed treats for them to enjoy. I think I have liked making Halloween treats the most because there are just so many fun things to make! Cake balls are always a huge hit with the kids (and adults!), so this year I made Mummy Cake Balls.  Not only are these cake balls super cute and delicious, but they are so easy to make.

What You’ll Need

  • Cake Mix
  • Cream Cheese
  • Vanilla Almond Bark
  • Candy Eyes

How to Make Mummy Cake Balls

To start with this recipe, you make a boxed cake mix, according to the directions on the package.  I used white cake mix but you can really use any flavor that you like!  Once the cake is made, you get to crumble the entire thing up into crumbs.  This is a fun chance to get the kids involved!  

Next, you’ll add a block of softened cream cheese to the crumbs.  I like to do this in an electric stand mixer because it comes together super quickly this way. If your kids are already having fun getting their hands dirty, you could have them help mix it in with their hands or a spatula.  

I should note: many cake ball recipes use a can of frosting with the cake crumbs. I have made them this way and find they turn out really sweet with the frosting.  Using a block of cream cheese works just as well and the cake balls are just as delicious! Believe me, there is plenty of sweetness from the cake mix and candy coating.

Once the mixture is combined, you will form it into little cake balls.  I place mine on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and stick them in the freezer for about a half an hour.  I find it makes them easier to dip in the almond bark/candy coating when they are cold.  After 30 minutes, melt the almond bark or candy coating (both work!) and then dip away! Place the edible eyeballs onto the balls before the almond bark sets up.

Lastly, the almond bark harden and then drizzle with additional almond bark for that mummy look!  

These were super fun to make and the kids had a blast helping and eating them!  These spooky mummy cake balls are a must make Halloween treat that your kids will love, just as mine did.
