Step by Step Details:
Step 1

Place 12 BonBites in food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Add in half the package of cream cheese and one Cinnabon frosting cup and continue to blend. Using rubber spatula, scrape sides of food processor to move around chunks of cream cheese and cinnamon rolls and continue to pulse. Once finely pulsed, scoop mixture into bowl.

Step 2

Repeat step one with remaining BonBites, cream cheese, and frosting. Add mixture to bowl.

Step 3

Using a tablespoon, scoop out mixture and roll into balls, about 1 inch thick, and place on a lined baking sheet. In a microwave safe bowl, melt white chocolate in 30 second increments. Using a rubber spatula or spoon, dip cake balls into bowl of melted chocolate. Once completely covered in chocolate, place cake ball onto baking sheet.

Step 4

Sprinkle with ground cinnamon or other favorite toppings and chill for at least 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Chef's Notes:

Here are a few tips to consider when making your Cinnabon Cake Balls :

  • Give your homemade cake balls a holiday theme with red and green holiday sprinkles for a Christmas treat or mini chocolate chips as eyes to make a Halloween ghost.
  • Freeze leftovers and enjoy for another couple of weeks.
  • The two soufflé cups of Cinnabon frosting can be purchased at the bakery. Each soufflé cup has around 1.6 oz. of frosting.
  • Most food processors will not fit all BonBites, cream cheese, and frosting at the same time, which is why Cinnabon suggests placing half of the ingredients in the food processor at a time and then repeating the step with the other half of the ingredients.
  • When dipping cake balls in chocolate, it is best to use a rubber spatula or spoon rather than a fork to ensure even coverage. If chocolate begins to harden while covering the cake balls, heat in microwave in 15 second increments.
