Made with crumbled cake mixed with marshmallow creme and coated in smooth white chocolate, these Easter Egg Cake Bites are a perfect blend of sweetness and festive charm.


  • 1 package White cake mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
  • Food Coloring (various colors)
  • 1 cup Marshmallow Creme
  • 14 oz White Melting Chips


  1. Prepare Cake Mix: Begin by following the package directions to make the cake batter. To add a vibrant Easter touch, divide the batter in half and use different food colorings to tint each half. Bake according to the instructions until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  2. Cool and Crumble: Allow the cakes to cool completely on a wire rack. Once cooled, crumble them into a large bowl using your hands or a fork.
  3. Mix with Marshmallow: Add marshmallow creme to the crumbled cake and mix until well combined. This mixture should be sticky and easily moldable.
  4. Shape and Chill: Roll the cake mixture into egg-sized portions using your hands. Place them on a tray lined with wax paper and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, allowing them to firm up.
  5. Melt and Coat: In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips in 30-second intervals, stirring in between until smooth. Take out the chilled cake bites from the refrigerator and dip each one into the melted chocolate, ensuring they are completely coated. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off before placing them back on the wax paper.
  6. Decorate: For an extra festive touch, separate a portion of the melted white chocolate and tint it with food coloring of your choice. Transfer the colored chocolate to zippered bags, snip a corner, and drizzle over the coated cake bites in a decorative pattern.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Once the chocolate coating has set, arrange your Easter Egg Cake Bites on a serving platter and watch them disappear in no time!

Serving and Storage Tips:

  1. Serving Suggestions: These Easter Egg Cake Bites are best served chilled, straight from the refrigerator, allowing the white chocolate coating to remain firm and the cake mixture to retain its delightful texture. Arrange them on a decorative platter or in mini cupcake liners for a charming presentation that will impress your guests.
  2. Garnish with Sprinkles: Add an extra touch of whimsy by sprinkling colorful Easter-themed sprinkles or edible glitter over the chocolate-coated cake bites before the chocolate sets. This adds a festive flair and makes them even more irresistible.
  3. Accompaniments: Serve these Easter Egg Cake Bites alongside other Easter-themed desserts such as cupcakes, cookies, or fruit tarts for a diverse dessert spread that caters to everyone’s tastes. A cup of hot cocoa or a refreshing glass of milk pairs wonderfully with these sweet treats.
  4. Storage Tips: If you have any leftovers (which is unlikely!), store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Be sure to separate layers with wax paper to prevent them from sticking together. Avoid leaving them at room temperature for extended periods, as the chocolate coating may soften or melt.
  5. Freezing Option: These Easter Egg Cake Bites can also be frozen for longer storage. Place them in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze until firm. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe container or resealable plastic bag, placing wax paper between layers to prevent sticking. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 1 month. When ready to enjoy, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight or at room temperature for a few hours before serving.


  1. Chocolate Lover’s Twist: For those who can’t get enough chocolate, try using chocolate cake mix instead of white cake mix for a rich and decadent variation. You can also substitute dark chocolate melting chips for the white chocolate coating for an indulgent chocolate-on-chocolate experience.
  2. Fruity Flavors: Experiment with different cake flavors and fillings to create a variety of fruity Easter Egg Cake Bites. Use strawberry or lemon cake mix for a burst of fruity flavor, and mix in corresponding fruit preserves or flavored extracts into the marshmallow creme filling for an extra zing.
  3. Nutty Crunch: Add some texture and nutty flavor by incorporating chopped nuts such as almonds, pecans, or walnuts into the cake mixture before shaping into egg bites. You can also roll the chocolate-coated cake bites in crushed nuts or toasted coconut for a delightful crunch.
  4. Cookie Crumble Coating: Instead of dipping the cake bites in melted chocolate, roll them in crushed cookies or graham crackers for a fun and flavorful twist. This adds a delicious cookie crunch to every bite and pairs perfectly with the marshmallow-filled center.
  5. Candy-Coated Delight: Get creative with your coatings by rolling the cake bites in crushed candies such as M&M’s, Reese’s Pieces, or crushed candy canes for a colorful and festive touch. The combination of sweet cake, creamy marshmallow, and crunchy candy shell is sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike.
  6. Alcohol-Infused Option: For an adult-friendly version, add a splash of your favorite liqueur or flavored syrup to the marshmallow creme filling for a boozy twist. Popular options include Irish cream, orange liqueur, or coffee liqueur, but feel free to get creative and experiment with your favorite flavors.


  1. Can I use homemade cake instead of a cake mix? Absolutely! You can use your favorite homemade cake recipe instead of a cake mix. Just be sure to bake it according to the recipe’s instructions and allow it to cool completely before crumbing and proceeding with the recipe.
  2. Can I use different flavors of cake mix for this recipe? Yes, you can experiment with different cake flavors to create unique variations of Easter Egg Cake Bites. Try flavors like chocolate, strawberry, lemon, or even funfetti for a colorful twist.
  3. Can I use something other than marshmallow creme for the filling? While marshmallow creme provides a smooth and creamy filling, you can also use frosting or cream cheese mixed with powdered sugar as alternatives. Just adjust the consistency to ensure it binds well with the crumbled cake.
  4. How far in advance can I make these Easter Egg Cake Bites? You can make these cake bites up to 2-3 days in advance of serving. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. If you prefer, you can also freeze them for longer storage.
  5. Can I skip the food coloring for a more natural look? Of course! Feel free to skip the food coloring if you prefer a more natural look for your Easter Egg Cake Bites. You can still enjoy the festive flavors without the added color.
  6. How do I prevent the chocolate from seizing when melting? To prevent the chocolate from seizing, make sure all utensils and bowls are completely dry before melting. Additionally, melt the chocolate in short intervals in the microwave, stirring between each interval until smooth.
