Easy & Delicious Carrot Cake Balls – Carrot Cake Balls are totally popping. You will not be able to stop eating one after the other.

Yields: 30


3/4 cup canola oil

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

3 large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

2 medium carrots, finely grated

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese

1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1-2 tbsps canola oil

1/4 cup pecan pieces


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8-x-8 inch baking pan with nonstick spray.

In the bowl of your stand mixer, mix together canola oil, sugars, eggs and vanilla.

Add cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Add flour and mix until just incorporated. Fold in grated carrots.

Pour batter into the prepared baking pan and place in the oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool completely.

Once cooled, using a fork or your hands, break the cake into fine crumbs into a large bowl. Add softened cream cheese and knead gently with your hands until cream cheese is fully incorporated.

Roll into 30 cake balls (about 1 heaping tablespoon per ball) and place on a wax paper-lined baking sheet. Place in the fridge to chill while you prepare the chocolate.

Heat chocolate in a heatproof bowl until completely melted. Add oil, if using, and stir to combine. Remove cake balls form the fridge and place one ball at a time into the melted chocolate. Using a fork, evenly coat each ball with the chocolate. Use the fork to remove the cake ball from the chocolate and before transferring it back to the baking sheet, slightly tap the fork against the side of the bowl to get rid of any excess chocolate. Sprinkle with pecan pieces, if desired. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with remaining balls.

Return pops to the fridge for 15 minutes or until set.
